It was a great experience where the staff were friendly & attentive. The first day during breakfast i asked for a small bowl for my half boiled eggs, the next day they remembered & brought for me without me asking. Breakfast was nice too & u can hv unlimited amt of fruit juice.
We stayed in a deluxe suite on the 3rd floor with balcony, the room was very spacious quiet and comfortable. All facilities worked well and our room was kept very clean and tidy - room service was very unobtrusive. This floor had the business centre (2PCs fax etc) with free internet and a small but helpful library. The room matched pictures on the internet.
Staff were all polite and attentive and very pro active and keen to help answer any request. We needed a international power adapter which required trying several types.
Loved the food, the in-house menu though small was always beautifully cooked. I recommend the Dosa for breakfast served with sambal it was both tasty and refreshing. We can also recommend the Old Harbour hotel restaurant next door - the Tuna tar tar is a must try.
This hotel is very centrally located perfect for walking short distances to the tourist spots. Opposite is a large park, then the Chinese fishing nets. On the park corner is a tuk tuk station 30 rupee will take you most places in Kochi, Mantancherry & late night rides only slightly more.
Drivers chosen by the hotel for airport and tours were honest. Collectively they drive intuitively a whole new perspective for us so hang on and go with it.
We recommend a ferry ride to Ernakullum its much faster 20 minutes versus 1 hour plus drive. Get the driver to use the barge on your airport transfer its fun and faster.
Seductively relaxing thanks to the staff who warmly welcomed us
A fantastic, interesting and educational experience, of a part of the world usually run down by others. So many different places of interest to visit e.g. The Hills Palace, the main residence of the Maharaja's through the ages until India became independent. To experience a houseboat trip through the backwaters to see how the locals live and survive. To be able if wanted to visit a lot of different religious buildings - e.g. The Synagogue In Fort Kochi. To see millions of people go about their daily life at all levels

The biggest thing working in favor of Lotus8 is the proximity to the Airport. You can see their banner atop the Hotel amid Coconut trees as you exit the terminal.
my wife really liked the room, however i found the room to have a bit of a musty smell. The buffet spread too was strictly ok-ok, nothing to write to home about.
Another very useful feature they offer is that rooms can be rented out on an hourly basis, thought this to be extremely useful.
Overall a good place to stay, good staff but i would think it more of a place to chk in overnight or a place to stay between flights like we did on the way to Lakshwadweep.

Beautiful setting way away from the city and crowds. A bit out of the way for those wanting to do things in the city but the hotel staff easily arranged taxis to get about. Food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They put on a lovely cultural show on Christmas evening with a buffet dinner. Take good bug repellent if you want to enjoy sitting outside to watch the sunset.
