Great Service Oriented Hotel
I have stayed in this hotel a few times now and once again found that their standards of service has remained consistently high. The high point is the friendliness of the staff right from the Doorman onwards. I was critical of Bubble Cafe, the attached restaurent in my last review, but they have improved a lot. Now the staff seemed more interested in the customers needs than doing their assigned tasks. It is feels odd that they don't have dedicated receptionist to receive customers, seat them and ask their room number (instead of having to chase after them to find the room number when they are leaving); just an observation - hey, who am I tell someone how to run their business.

Fair 4.0
A blot on Taj Hotel Group’s hospitality!!
Except for the location, nothing works for this hotel. Since they are located in Ernakulam, travelling is convenient for lawyers as it is very close to the High Court. The quality of service is extremely poor, the staff forgets to place even the basic amenities like soap in the room before a guest checks in. Also, staff was completely oblivious to the certain basic requests of the customer. I don’t prefer to stay in this hotel but constrained to stay in this property because of its location. For my next visit to Kochi / Ernakulam, I am definitely going to explore other hotel options, even if that entails longer travel times within the city.
