Thrissur is a smallish town with no 4 or 5 star hotel. In such a place Joy’s Palace is a decent option for short stay. I was here for work trip and first thought of booking Suite room for some working with team and better comfort. But the suite room was not upto expectations, its just 2 normal rooms connected with a door and one room converted into living room with dining table and sofa, the tv is huge though the remote was not easy to use and very limited channels anyways. I requested for a change to a superior room, which took some back and forth as I had booked online. The attitude of hotel staff in that matter could have been more friendly while dealing with this matter. The superior room was better than suite room bedroom, probably because suite is not used much hence not maintained. Food is very average, breakfast pretty standard, doesnt change much except one dish. Location is next to the big bus depot and wholesale veg market, not much to do anyways, you would need to take an auto/uber to go anywhere, but thrissur is a small town, so not a big problem. Also we were not allowed early check-in as we reached at 10, for business travelers many hotels do allow as they just need to freshen up and leave for work to come back in evening, but we just had to leave our bags and come back to the room in evening.
