We stayed at Luminara for 3 nights. Recommended Guest Relations Manager : Miss. Divya Mol (morning shift) and Mr. Shinoj (evening shift)
They welcome you with a smile that makes your day. Welcome drinks were served, billing formalities were quick and easy. The rooms were neat and tidy. Cleaning of rooms happen on a daily basis. The floor service manager: Mr. Vimal and team does a good job. Soothing music plays at all public stairways and the art work around the hotel are the cherry on top of the cake.

This room was booked as the venue for me getting together with 3 of my college buddies. It was a place that provided rooms which could put accommodate 4 adults with ease.
The room was spacious and clean. The service was excellent- both reception as well as at the restaurant where we enjoyed a good buffet breakfast.
Food was good and the location is very close to Ernakulam Town (North) station with easy access to popular spots in the city by auto / cab / car.
My best wishes to the team at Luminara and hope to see you again.

I have stayed with my family and had a horrible experience here. Only reception and receptionist are excellent.
Buffet breakfast is worst, not many items in place, hardly they have just 2 menus for tiffin with breads which doesn’t worth for adding breakfast with room.
Coming to room service, it was even worst. Room service boys are rude and their behaviour is not good. Also they don’t have their kitchen open before 8am, if we want to have tea/coffee before 8am, it’s not possible and they simply say kitchen is not open.
Coming to room, there is no FAN. Bathroom doors are not properly fitted and main door too. It’s difficult to open or close main door which is not an experience for this hotel. Only good thing is reception looks like a 4 star hotel, not the room. Overall worst stay, there are numerous hotels near by. I won’t recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hi Luminara,
It's an added advantage that Luminara is nearest to the Ernakulam North Railway Station. We could easily locate it. Check in procedure was easly done. Very courteous staffs from the front desk to the room services everyone behaved very well, should mention Ms. Divyamol and Ms. Reshma. Well maintained and spacious room,and have to mention the cleanliness even on the bathroom,provided all amenities,also the food we ordered was very good and tasty. Had a wonderful and memorable stay, will definitely recommend and will visit again for sure.

With Love Arsha Jokin❤️

Excellent stay here really enjoyed it ,staff front of house were fantastic, very helpful and polite.
The hotel is excellent value for money although not sure to book through booking.com.....
Food there is really good and they have a disco/bar/restaurant on top floor its BOUNCING,we loved it definitely recommend .
We also had a problem with a lost room key which they replaced without charge which l thought was a good gesture from them.
location is very central for everywhere,however some people like the more touristy parts of kochi,we loved its location and the city experience of kochi people.....thanks rob and alli

The information on the website is misleading, this is only superficially a good hotel. The staff were very pleasant and helpful but the suite we stayed in had many faults. The AC created a humidity and moisture leaked from a panel in the ceiling making the floor hazardous. It was also very malodorous. All clothing became damp. There was no provision for hanging and drying clothes either.
The windows were frosted and could not be opened so there was no view or option for allowing some fresh air into the rooms. It’s a very noisy place and loud thumping music from the extortionate bar can be heard thumping away throughout the place. The pool is a joke, very basic with astroturf around the edges which has turned black in places. There was only 1 sunlounger available and this was in a poor condition. Also the surface of the pool was covered in dead insects when we arrived. Overall quite a grotty hotel.

Overall the ambience was nice and room is really spacious but the only problem that I felt was we are not allowed to open the windows and it is very difficult to stay for more than 2 days without air circulation.
I would prefer the hotel and the staff are also really friendly. Its worth the money.
