We stayed their on 23-24 Feb 2015. Rooms were clean and spacious. Service was also quite good. They offered us really Good breakfast. Sometimes Buffet Dinner is available here around 300/-.
A river shown in backside is different from their picture..Right now place isn't quite maintained and view is not that good which we can see in photo. So, if you are going in this hotel by watching river side view then ignore it.

We stayed there for two days this March 2015, and the hotel is located in the center of town, convenient to travel to the sight seeing places.Interior looks was good, but the exterior part was pretty old.
Rooms were ok, but needs lots of maintenance.Service was also good, but the food quality was pathetic..They should give more priorities on maintenance of the room, poorly maintained.The high price they are charging for the rooms is not worth.
We had taken a room with valley view and had a package which included breakfast( 5-6 items were there)which was quite good, but dinner food quantity and quality was below average. I would suggest to go to some other restaurants for dinner/lunch.Front desk staffs were courteous and professional.Try to take a room with valley view and on higher floors.......................................
Overall, a average stay at the hotel

It was not a planned Trip to Munnar. Hence I started without booking rooms. I had reached munnar on 3rd oct. I was given only one day's accommodation.

Positives:
1. Clean Rooms.
2.Bathrooms had nice fitiings and clean
3.Close Town. About 2 kms on Cochin road.

Negatives:
1.Road leading to Hotel (approx 500M) is bumpy & could be a problem while it rains
2.Doesn't have any in Hotel Entertainment.

Sore Point:
1. We did not get Hot water in the morning. After Repeated calls we were Told "we would get hot water in 10 mins" That was not to be.
2. Reception Guy Quoted Rs.3500 Net including 2 meals. I had negotiated it to 3200 Nett inclusive of meals. While Checking out to my Astonishment I was charged Rs.350 for dinner.
May be the communication wasn't clear. I would give them Benefit of Doubt.

Note: The River the Reviewers are mentioning isn't a River Exactly. Its just looks like a canal with stagnated black water ( No Foul smell as such).

You can find lots of hotel in similar budget around the Town. If you are just stay in the Nights and roam around the whole day then this Hotel would fit the bill.

I stayed there for two days on 4-5 January 2015. We booked three rooms for three families as we came to visit Munnar. The rooms,bathrooms and lobbys were very clean. Front desk staff was courteous efficient and helpful. Rooms are good sized and beautifully decorated. There was enough of daylight and fresh air with beautiful surroundings. A near by river and its bridge and an empty field opposite the hotel were great attractions for the kids. I wish if they get that bridge painted and make the surroundings more organized, it will enhance the beauty of the place manifold. Breakfast was very good. For meals there are options of buffet and a la carte as suits you. Food was good and hygenic. Wi fi was complimentary but We couldn't use it as they weren't getting data from BSNL. They shou have some standby arrangement for this. Over all it was a beautiful experience.

I booked executive room because of better facility through agent;but believe me they gave me standard type room which was below average and had no facility of wifi, rooms had dampness on wall, no cleanness and had cockroach in their bathroom, reception was too rude.

Believe me you cannot rate them even single star and had very poor management their tagline is 3 star with 4 star facility but it should be get changed to 3 star hotel with dhabha category facility.

Don't waste your money for this hotel try to opt some other option....

A pathetic hotel, located at the end of a narrow lane filled with far better hotels. Small dirty stream/nalla flowing from the backside. Poor in terms of food, overpriced for its amenities. Poor wi fi coverage.

we stayed in archana munnar november 1/2 2011. our package was orgnized by archana residency. it was much better than our tour last time, which was organized by a travel agent.
archna staff used call us every day during our tour to take service feed back while we were in boat house, periyar, cochin and kovalam. when we entered into archana lobby lobby was fully crowded we saw lot of people wating rooms and few of them without booking Hotel people was very pleasingly directing them. rooms were well furnished and hotel situated in a good location. buffet arrangement was good too. we sugesst to make a prior booking if you are travelling to munnar the room alloted to us was 306 an upgraded room against our booking we think 3rd floor room has better view. and we found some thing unique like a well equiped beuatyparlor on their 4th floor

To start with, we checked-in @ Archana residency at 2 pm on 8th September, 2011 and since that time we were just in love with Munnar and our room which was having a front face balcony through which we can see the hills and the other balcony was facing towards the river which was flowing along side the hotel. It was just amazing. The location of the hotel is just perfect and the market area where you can buy the famous tea and spices are at a close distace of approx 10 mins walk. Later in the evening we had complimentory dinner which was included in our package and I must say that I and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It was the best we had since the time we landed in Kerala. Dal fry, Chicken chilly, Gobi manchurian and Chicken fried rice were mouth watering.
But due to monsoon season the road leading to the hotel was little messed up. However, considering the friendly staff, great balcony view, comfortable stay and homely feeling, I will surely ignore that.
We had to check out the next day according to our schedule plan and we personally wanted to stay here for 1 more day.
In a nut shell, The stay was really a memorable one and I would surely suggest my friends and relatives this place when the plan to visit Munnar.

We got a good deal at Archana since we traveled during the off-season in August. The hotel is a small property. A stand-alone building near a river side. It's approx. 15-20 mins walk from the main Munnar market. I would advise anyone going to Munnar not to stay in the main market area. There are no good views and there's nothing much to do in the market (no good restaurants or shopping).

The view from Archana was not great considering the astounding locales Munnar has to offer. But for the price we paid, we were quite satisfied with the room. The room was nicely done up. There were 2 small balconies overlooking the river and the golf course beyond it. It was calm, serene and beautiful.

1. Food was great
2. Pretty and clean rooms
3. The staff was very helpful and sweet
4. Window curtains had some stains on them ... Though it really did not affect us, it kind of spoils the entire feel of a perfectly nice room
5. The small road (less than 500 meters) leading to the hotel is quite bumpy and muddy. It becomes difficult to walk on it when it rains
6. Expect only accommodation and food. There is not much to do within the hotel. No games, garden area, spa etc. Its perfect for budget travelers who are looking for decent, clean place to sleep and who are going to spend the whole day sight seeing. But if you are with kids or if you want to spend maximum time enjoying the property, then its not the place for you
7. The hotel helps in arranging taxis for sight seeing. But i would advise to take a taxi from the market rather from the hotel. We took a taxi from the hotel for 1-day sight seeing. Firstly, it was more expensive than the market rates (more than 50%). The hotel manager promised we can keep the taxi from 10am to 6pm and can roam around ~120km. We wanted to finish Top Station by 1-2 pm and then go to rajamalai. We started early and we were not interested in boating & tea making factory kind of attractions en route to Top Station. Hence we had enough time to go to both the places. But the taxi driver was quite stubborn about not doing 2 routes (Top Station and Rajamalai fall on 2 different routes according to most of the sight seeing tours offered in Munnar). He said Top Station is a 1 day trip and he refused to take us to Rajamalai. The next day when we inquired with taxi drivers in the market, they offered to do both the places in 1 days in much lesser price than what we paid only for Top station.
