Ups and Downs

Would recommend Mon, Apr 13, 2015
The Gateway is a good hotel. Despite what I am about to say overall I would recommend it to someone looking for a modern, clean business-style quality place to stay in Kochi. However from the moment we arrived how we felt about it swung from good to bad continually. For example the food at breakfast was really good - huge choice and tasty - but as soon as we tried an evening buffet there was less choice and the food was not as good. The service on reception was excellent and the room cleanliness good but our key failed to work on five occasions resulting in long periods locked out waiting for a man to fix it. Generally the bell boys responsible for the gate onto Marine Drive were really on the ball and came with the key when you wanted to go in or out. However the one time we arrived back in torrential rain we rang the bell several times and no-one came - we stood and got completely soaked. They have what looks like a great swimming pool - but it is so shallow it is difficult to swim properly in it! However the people on reception and in the restaurant are lovely and whilst the Gateway in Kochi (Taj group) didn't match up to the Taj Palace in Mumbai it was a pleasant place to stay - we felt safe and looked after.

Tolerable for the price point, but far from good...

Would recommend Sun, Feb 26, 2012
The "Gateway" hotels are a definine step down from the traditional Taj experience. This hotel would be considered a three star hotel by international standards at best. Breakfast buffet is absolutely terrible: full of stale bakery goods and very odd food choices that should not typically served for breakfast. The only thing somewhat good was the south indian items. Aside from the buffet, the other restaurants and bar are about average (Bubbles is a good spot for a casual dinner). Room was well appointed and clean overal, service was disjointed. Some staff members were very good, some were inept. Concierge lady almost send my wife and I on a dangerous trip on a late night ferry to the Taj Malabar until one of the doorman intervened. Dry cleaning ruined one of my shirts, but did a good job making amends. Gym is ridiculously small. Overall, a convienient place to stay for and accetable as long as the price is below $150USD.
