Le Meridien Kochi5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed at the le meridien from 5th February to 14 February 2018. Had a great time. Room (210) was good with view of the backwater and many palm trees (although view somewhat spoiled by an eyesore of a building standing many kilometres away but in line of vision as building quite tall and seems to have been abandoned mid-build). Anyways nothing bad to say about the Le Meridien itself, good standards, great food and variety, courteous & friendly staff (especially waiter called Rhettish (?)), not too busy, best place is the large veranda on the backside where it is pleasant to sit in the evenings. Pool was out of bounds though so no swimming allowed. Also generally a bit on the quiet side. Location is good as it is about an hours drive (or less, took us about 50 mins) from the Airport. It definitely isn't located 90 mins from the airport as some of the reviews mention or if you are told this by the hotel staff at time of booking, it is not correct unless you end up being stuck in heavy traffic! very unlikely. It is about 4 hours to drive to Munnar and 1 hour to Allapey and about a 15 minute drive to Fort Cochin where all the foreign tourists hang out. Best to hire a taxi from the airport when you get there from the prepaid booking stand. Fare cost to hotel was about 850 INR which is reasonable when compared to other taxis or what the hotel may charge you. Guaranteed a safe and enjoyable stay at Le Meridien! :)
Had an awesome evening spent. The attendant named Rajeesh R was very warm and welcoming. KUDOS. The food was also very delicious and sumptuous. Good ambience hospitality and delicacy. Recommend for everyone
We landed in Cochin from Kolkata and drove about 45 mins into town and our hotel le meridian. The front desk as well as the doorman was very courteous. The rooms were nice and airy overlooking the backwaters.the breakfast was very interesting and had a super spread.very happy experience
The room allotted was overlooking the back garden with a view of the River. The rooms were serviced daily and very clean and very well maintained. The Hotel is located about 90 mins from the Airport, which could be tiresome....! It is also by the side of the main thoroughfare to the City Centre. The Hotel serves a fabulous buffet brekky...!!! The gardens are immaculate and taxis are available at short notice. Staff are extremely courteous and push the boundaries to help...! In particular " R K " in the Reception area. Thanks RK...!

I had a memorable stay here for a few days. The staff was exceptionally accomadating providing the very best to make my stay here pleasant. Thumbs up to Swimee, Assish Pius and his wonderful colleagues surprising my last day here with a birthday cake as well. I shall definately make a come back. Keep up the famtastic hospitality.
Very very disappointed with the service at the Le Meridien. Would never advice anyone to ever stay there again. Service is pathetic. No basic room cleaning done despite calling the operator to request house keeping to do the room. On arrival the room is a mess. Left as it is with dirty plates and mess lying all around. No one on the property takes responsibility for the issues. Each one passes the buck to the other saying I had told them so. Shocking! They pass off everything so casually laughing it off. The buffet at the coffee shop is tasteless, ice cold.. no one even knows till they’re told. It takes them 20 mins to serve you a glass of water. This is my last trip to this hotel. What it was 6 months ago, the hotel is unrecognisable.
Great hotel, excellent service. Lovely rooms. Perfect of a nice short break! Location is a little out but there are Auto’s waiting at the end of the road and we used Uber Cabs where they came right to the doors of the hotel. 👍🏼
Having visited this hotel a few times across different years, I must commend the staff for making me feel at home, during my staying for a month. They are what make me want to return each time despite having to commute 2 hrs each day. The experience and service levels they gave were incredibly warm, friendly and very helpful, which was portrayed across all staff members! I want to deeply thank all of them for an amazing experience and the best food as always!
I have been visiting this Spa for the last 7-8 years only for their best Ayurveda Massage & Treatments as well as their very professional and talented experienced staff especially Dr. A. Raj who is very professional and knows what needs to be done if you walk in with any body issues. Their other staff like massagers Jayaraj and Veena, Mareena, Soorya and Prathesh are the best as well. This Spa is the best in the world and the services makes us re-visit them every year for 10 days. They have the answer and massage for any problem you may have and at very reasonable price. They all work very hard and very dedicated. I live in NY, USA and visit this place every year. I recommend this place to you all. Jim Dugal. I can be reached at 1 732 236 3919
