Arcadia Hotel
Ranked #4 of 29 Hotels in Kottayam
Reviewed 21 August 2017 via mobile

I had an overnight stay at the Arcadia,the rooms ,n bath were clean.Though the hotel is one the oldest in Kottayam the interiors have been renovated,the breakfast buffet n lunch buffet were average with some traditional kerela delicacies,the staff were courteous n helpful.I required a cab for the entire day which they promptly arranged at my own cost,I've rated them very good considering ,Kottayam is a tier 2 city the hotel pretty much keeps up with that.

Hotel meets to only necessity. Luxury is out of question. Staff tries to fill the gap with cheesy smile . Breakfast menu is better for starving people.
Probably Kitchen was under renovation.
Room dining has little choice. Probably hotel has accepted that the guests would prefer to go outside restaurant for dining.
Rooms are spacious but looks dull.
The centre location is big advantage.

Good food, nice place to stay and its literally it has the top most point in Kottayam town. You will get a full view of in and around Kottayam town form the top of this building. Situated on a one way road.

We were planning to have dinner outside for a small change, so we choose Arcadia, it is just nice, nothing much delicious and nothing so great. They have buffet dinner as well but we choose A la carte , surprisingly food came so fast. I would like to say there are certain areas need more attention like, people who are taking care of the service need more attentive and ability to smile. Overall it was a nice experience for us....

Stayed 29-30 December 2016.Fourth time stay in 4 years.When ever at Kottayam,we stay with Arcadia.
X Mas decorations were still on added a bit of extra attraction.
Courteous staff and well appointed rooms.
Reserved car parking was provided at the basement.Room service and the buffet breakfast were good.
Arcadia does not disappoint you and it is worth your money.

Room Tip: Over looks the town centre.

We stayed here for a week in a "luxury" room which was really two doubles put together and a roll away bed.

Although the breakfast was great, it was the same items everyday. It was also obvious that some of the items were re- heated from the day prior and the drink contaminators were not emptied either, leaving leftover juices from the prior morning as well.

While the hotel offers wifi, it does not work often and when it does, it is a trickle. We mentioned this to the staff and they did not care at all. This is important for me as I have a family member with medical needs and needed to maintain contact.

The most disappointing part of the experience was the service from the front desk. They in no way attempted to address any of the issues and merely told us that we should accept it. We are returning to Kerala in August for a few more weeks and this hotel will not be on our list.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else
