The hotel is centrally located, right on MG road and close to the railway station. Rooms were clean and maintained fairly well and the service was good. Major highlight of this hotel is its restaurant which is hugely popular among the locals and serves delicious and authentic Syrian Christian cuisine. Prices are slightly on the higher side. Overall, a good...

Our norm is to fix a night in advance at any new destination and take a day to get the "lay of the land" so to speak before lining up the rest of our stay. We made the Grand Hotel choice over the internet because it was central appeared to be moderately priced and showed good amenities. The hotel is...

Tired, moldy, and what have you. Strong smell of smoking in the hallways, although public smoking is banned. The toilet says it all. What a shame as the place could have been so much more with the Art Deco fixtures and charm. The staff is not rude but not nice, either.

This hotel is old and a bit tired. My room was musty and a had a very noisy air duct outside the window, which also affected several of my group in nearby rooms. The staff were efficient but not especially welcoming. The restaurant had very good food for lunch and dinner but the breakfast was pretty modest.

Food is good, but this is an upscale restaurant, hence the prices are too high. Ambience is great and service was good. I am sure there are other places in Kochi offering the same quality of food at lesser prices.

The highlight of the lunch was the much ballyhooed "karimeen pilichathu". But the banana leaf and the gravy reeked of chemicals!. The rice plate had just 3 small side dishes. Not worth the price. This used to be a great place.

The grand is an old establishment in the heart of Kochi that provides good food and service at reasonable prices. Out of the many visits to the hotel the food has always been delicious and the ambience very relaxing.
