HIRIADKA VISHWANATH from BANGALORE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 22 Feb 2013
I alighted from Bangalore at Ernakulum Junction station at 5.00 PM on 18.02.2013. I reached there by Intercity Express and the train was in time. The Hotel was located near the Ernakulum Town station also popularly known as Ernakulum North station, a distance of 5 KMs from the Ernakulum Junction. While sitting in the train I passed through the Ernakulum North station and as there was no stop I could not get down there. On inquiry with the Hotel they guided me properly and accordingly I hired a auto rickshaw from the prepaid booth controlled by the Kerala police. It took me 10 minutes to cover the distance and the driver just dropped me in front of the Hotel. The good thing about the location is that the hotel is very near to the Ernakulum Main Bus station and Ernakulum main business road, i.e M G road. The road on which the hotel is located is very narrow, a typical of Kerala City and neat and clean.
This was not a issue to me during this trip since I travelled by Train and used the public transport.
The hotel is conveniently located very near to the Ernakulum Main Bus station and M G Road and other main Business locations. Hotel is very well suited for a short visit.
The Front desk:
The staff was very helpful. I had booked an AC standard room. The room was readily available on arrival at 5.15 Pm.
I could get a room not facing the road there by free from noise pollution. The room was small but neat and comfortable. The linen was clean, air conditioner was running and taps and flush were working. The bathroom was compact and reasonably clean.
Food & Room Service:
Food was average. Service was fast but not accurate. The room service guy vanished without bringing the sauce and never turned up. This made me not to order any food during my remaining part of stay.
Although I booked for two days, since there was some likely bundh on 20.02.2013 & 21.02.2013,I checked out on completion of one day and boarded the train to Bangalore.
On the whole, the hotel is a good option for the budget traveller and for short stays.
