Basics missing like i had to ask for a pair of slippers.. Breakfast spread is decent. Go to this place for short journey, you...

After a fabulous stay at Vala House on Cherai beach , we weren't expecting anything with half as gorgeous a view and location. Taj Gateway probably has one of the better locations of the various hotels in the city as it is right on Marine Drive and gives you a view of the sea. Our room was sea facing and...

I am a frequent traveller and prefer Taj group of hotels as one of the favourite chains owing to the level of comfort and service normally provided to the guests. I must admit that the experience at Gateway, Ernakulam was sub-optimal and did not meet our expectations. To start with, the hotel location is quite nice and the quality of...

Nice staff with very well maintained rooms. The hotel is conveniently located. You can take a stroll in the evening on the beach-side. The view from the room was brilliant. Dining area is well placed with a sea view. The in-house restaurant served variety of dishes for breakfast and were tasty. Overall would love to visit again.

A wonderfully located hotel, very friendly staff with genuine smiles, excellent restaurant and great views from the sea facing rooms. I would certainly stay here again. It is an older hotel and that shows in some areas but not to the extent that it would prevent me from staying here again.

The Taj need to either refurbish or Shelly he property. It's creaking. Faded. Stained. Chipped. At places dirty. Reminded me of a semi decent lodge in a old old town which has never seen sunlight. The room given to me had a dirty hair drier which had never been cleaned. The chair near the desk was shaking broken and the...

Well managed hotel with excellent facilities and superb food. After checking in we were invited to join their complimentary harbour cruise which was very informative and a relaxing start to our 2 day stay. First night we ate in their Asian restaurant offering Chinese, Thai and Japanese dishes. Second night we ate in the Cafe which offered traditional Keralan food....
