The best thing about this hotel is its location. The popular M.G.Road is just 5 minutes walikng distance from the hotel.The rooms were quite clean with large windows.But the bathrooms were comparatively smaller and a bit suffocating, although exhaust fans were also present.
Room service was available only for lunch and dinner. They had an elaborate breakfast buffet. The food was quite good and reasonably priced.But if you are not satisfied you have a lot of options just outside the hotel.The reception was also very co operative and always ready to help you. The hotel also arranges sightseeing tours and the rate is almost equal to the KTDC tours.
So I would recomend this hotel to anyone who want to have a nice and peaceful stay at Cochi.

loaction of this hotel is very nice. Near to the ernakulum station and also near to the main market, but it is in a alley which makes it in a quiter place an thus it is peaceful, breakfast buffet is good with nice varieties. Room was clean, well maintained and spacious. Nice and sober interiors. It was value for money for us, around Rs1300/night. Food was vey nice. So all in all a nice and good hotel.

The location was great, but that was about it. The reception service was lousy, there were 2 ppl attending and they made us wait for almost 10 minutes. And there was no service with a smile.
The lift was so small it could only accomadate 2 ppl with bags. After a tired trip from the airport and waiting at the reception, we managed to finally get our room key. Once we opened the room, it was a disappointment. The bed was hard, the room had a wet clothes that hasnt met sunshine smell. We checked out very early the next morning after a bad night.

I stayed in Hotel Excellency for 2 nights from 22nd January 2012, being recommended by Lonely Planet. It is a two star hotel with modern bathroom facilities at a very reasonable budget. I had to pay 1300 Rs. for a nice clean big and bright AC room, though AC was not needed at that time. The non AC rooms are around 936 Rs. for a single person and 1000 Rs. for two people. Buffet breakfast is available at 90 Rs. and you get several options include bread, parathaa, idli, sambar, dosa, upma, grape juice, tea, coffee etc.

Conveniently located in the main town Ernakulam, near Jos junction on MG road where all the shopping malls are. The hotel is very close to the railway station, south junction that is, and 3 kilometer from north town station (around 50 Rs. by auto). I highly recommend this hotel if you are on a business trip.

If you are a tourist and planning to stay in Kochin for some time, I would recommend to stay somewhere in Fort Cochin. Most of the tourists prefer to stay in Fort Cochin as it is quiet and nice. Ernakulam town and Fort Cochin is well connected with each other by ferries in every 20 minutes. The ferry costs 3 Rs. only and takes 15 minutes. If you are staying in Fort Cochin and want to come to Ernakulam, you can take a ferry from the jetty, get off at Ernakulam main boat jetty, from there you can either walk of about 20 minutes to reach MG road, or you can take an auto for 20 Rs. The ferry operates till 9:50 pm on weekdays; I am not sure about the time of weekends. Alternatively, if you have many luggages with you and don’t want to take the ferry, you can hire an auto from fort Cochin to Ernakulum (where the train stations and airport are) which will cost you 150 to 220 Rs. depending on the time and the day.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor facing main road could be bit noisy during the day.
