Booked three days stayed sevenPosted Oct 27, 2013
Pros: Room to move, relaxation, breakfasts and staff.
Cons: Charging for mineral water policy should be reviewed to bring it in line with other hotels ie. one bottle a day included in tariff .
Location: Near the parade ground - watch the sporting activities during the weekend or relax under the trees during the week. Good restaurants within a block.
Most relaxing placed we've stayed in India. Comfortable rooms 50's furniture and twice the size of a large hotel room.The one we are in at the moment also has a 6m x 2m verandah a good place to red a book. As an older couple we've found this hotel excellent only 2 floors and quiet. A little out of town five minute walk to the fishing nets but just around the corner from excellent restaurants with appealing ambience. Staff have been more than helpful and the full breakfasts have been excellent. All over a great experience.

Reasonable cost hotel in a tourist locationPosted Mar 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was a reasonably priced hotel that was just about acceptable for our stay in Kochi. It is located in an elegant mansion that has been converted into a boutique hotel. The room amenities were of a reasonable standard but there was little else in the way of other hotel amenities. The breakfast provided was very basic in quality and there were no other food services at the hotel. There are however many excellent restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel. The hotel is located a fair distance from Kochi Airport and the journey to the hotel took over 90 mins. In terms of things to do, we found the 'Backwaters tour' attraction to be very over-rated. We took the full day tour and did not find that it even approached the rave ratings given by many who have done the tour in the past.

Great welcome at the Victory Dawn in KochiPosted Feb 28, 2013
Pros: Helpful staff , excellent location, free wifi
Cons: Not applicable
Location: Near the fishing nets and the basilica Santal Cruz
Wonderful old heritage hotel situated in the heart of Kochi, close to the main attractions. Rooms are air conditioned and are very big with an equally huge shower room. No tea making equipment but use of a fridge and free wifi. Full breakfast served upstairs by polite and helpful staff. The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are many good restaurants nearby. We chose to go to the Fort hotel (20 rupees by rickshaw) and sit by the candle lit jetty to watch the huge ships leave the dock. Dinner was excellent and reasonably priced. Note that they do not serve alcohol. Back at our hotel, the receptionist suggested that we go and watch a kathakali performance in the intimate theatre near the hotel and he reserved excellently seats for us. We also watched the actors putting their make up on (worth doing).

Good location , basic hotelPosted Jan 23, 2013
Pros: The size of the room was impressive
Location: Within walking distance to many attractions
The room was large but very basic. It was a ground floor room and every step in the room upstairs was clearly heard. Electricity shortages were plenty but that must be an area problem. The whole place felt like a relic of a bygone era, not renovated at all.

Spacious room and bathroom. Clean simple design. Room was clean but floor was little dusty when you walked barefoot. Breakfast was ok, but simple toast and coffee or tea. One morning we got a small omelette, the other sliced fruit. Food was fresh.

Very good choice in CochinPosted Oct 7, 2012
Pros: Great ambient
Location: Close to Chinese fishing nets
To be honest we've been moved to Koder House hotel. I'll rate that hotel but I think the quality is the same! Nice, friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable rooms, great restaurant! I can recommend for everyone.

Victory Dawn - peaceful haven in a bustling city.Posted Sep 9, 2012
Pros: Gentle and kindness of the staff.
Location: Set in a quiet street 5 minutes from the main hub, and you get a sound sleep.
This hotel is set back a little from the main bulk of hotels sitting on top of the Chinese fishing nets, which seems to be the location for most. However the area surrounding the Chinese fishing nets is noisy, dirty and full of hustlers. Victory Dawn is set in a beautifully quiet area 7 minute stroll from that main drag but so worth being there. The manager and other staff are exceptional in the service they provide and even on my departure date at 5.30 rose and made sure I left with a breakfast and pot of freshly made tea! They are very gentle and kind people, who will be of assistance should you ask and will leave you in peace to enjoy. The hotel has an aged charm and the standards of cleanliness and bathrooms superb with stacks of fresh towels and linen daily. You can double your price and get contemporary chic, but with the buzz of city traffic, hustlers ready to pounce at the gate and managers shouting down their mobiles like buzzing wasps or you can go to this gentle, little peaceful nook.
