“BAD SERVICE & POOR MANAGEMENT”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

we been to kocchi on 25/12/2011 and stayed at hotel Kavitha International. The hotel looks good from outside. You can see a old poorly dressed man sitting as watchman.
Since hotel is under renovation, a foul smell keeps on coming all time on any floor. In my case a.c was not working. I have told them 3 times to check but staff simply failed to acknowledge problem. On the contrary i had been charged a.c.tariff. Extra pillows were not provided on request to reception person. While checking out they raised bill including luxury tax & service tax.
Service tax number was not provided on bill. It means these people while charging tax from guest does not deposit back to govt.
It is not recommended to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: In my opinion stay away from this hotel

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2011

I visited Kochi in June and went there without booking. I sat in a cab and asked the driver to take me close to the railway station area for accessibility purpose. At around 1 AM on Chittoor road, I saw a board by the name Hotel Kavitha International and I inquired about it from the people present at the reception desk. Its close to the city center yet way from the maddening crowd of the city and you dont hear any noise whatsoever. They could provide free internet to all guests which they are still working on.

The Manager of the Hotel was very courteous and he helped me as well as gave me additional information when he got to know I was on a business trip since he could smell possibility of some corporate business in the future. He showed me few rooms and gave me a deal I could not resist. Also, he agreed to giving me a room on the higher floor.

The room was very clean and had been recently refurbished which was evident from its look which was not too far off from a 5 star hotel. It had all the amenities of a Deluxe room and the bed was very comfortable. The Bathroom was clean and so was the entire room.

The hotel is at walkable distance from the famous MG Road and few kms from Marine Drive and the shopping complexes as well as eateries. Also, there are autos & buses available at regular intervals at the hotel gate. Drivers will take you there if you just tell them you're staying at Kavitha International which was a pleasant surprise for me. There were general stores as well as restaurants at walkable distance from the hotel.

Everything right from check in, Room Service, prompt House Keeping to smooth check out and courtesy floored me which I did not expect from a hotel like this one. Being a nocturnal and a workaholic, I could just ask for one thing and that was food at night from their restaurant. However, the Manager made up for it by sending his guy to get me food at odd hours from a nearby eatery. Also, at that time they did not have all the items available on the menu though what I had ordered was good to eat and in good quantity for one person.

The food in their restaurant tasted good and the visual appeal was as it should be from a 2/3 star hotel; though not appealing, it tasted good. Perhaps they could look at having all the items on the menu available at all times so that guests dont have to look for options outside the hotel.

I would recommend this hotel to business travelers and groups. Honeymooners would be a bit disappointed if they are looking for a swimming pool, pub or 24-hr cafe, Massage parlour etc. Otherwise, this is a value for money place if you could get a deal from the Manager.

I would surely stay here again when I visit Kochi next..

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room on higher floor towards the road which would not have any noise comin...
