I have written about the hotel and the Restaurant Palms.
Unique Quality: The second time around, the food was equally good and the variety slightly different from the first time. One small warning: please choose Kerala foods, since they know how to prepare it, once they stray away from it, the taste is different, for eg, Chinese food offered at the buffet
Directions: Rs 199 including all taxes and service
For those who wish to make Ernakulam their base during exploration of Cochin and its neighbourhood and escape from the artificiality of the "backpacker princess street" and its connived friendliness, I recommend this place highly.
Unique Quality: General Manager
Front Desk Manager
Front Desk staff
Excellent Kerala Restaurant Palms
Railway Station is just a throw away
20 rupees autorikshaw drive to everywhere in Ernakulam
Suresh the friendly travel agent maintains a desk at this hotel and his office is within walking distance, The Tourist Land .
Directions: 1200 to 1500 indian rupees per room, including breaksfast. taxes extra.
Since I was to attend the Seder in Ernakulum, and the city and its services shut down soon after nine pm, I decided to stay one night in Ernakulum before shifting to my haunt, Ballard Bungalow in Fort Cochin
I was very impressed with the professionalism of the people at Metropolitan, the welcome I received and warmth I felt. What a pity this kind of attention is lacking at the hotels in Fort Cochin.
The Palms restaurant has a buffet lunch, that alone is a reason to stay here. The best Kerala food I have tasted
Unique Quality: Sudeesh Babu, the front office manager
The attentive staff in traditional Kerala sari at the front desk
The floor staff
The very congenial General manager
Directions: It is a walking distance from the Ernakulum south or Junction Railway Station.
