We were staying elsewhere (Fragrant Nature – see other review) but - popping in to make a dinner reservation - the exceptional welcome from the front desk encouraged us to check out the rooms and put this hotel at the top of our list for next year’s likely visit to Kochi. We

Hotel is like an oasis in a hot and humid city in an uptown spot near lots of clothing and souvenir shops but not far from key sites. I’d like to thank Ms Haridas and all the staff for looking after me when the rest of my group returned. I never thought solo travel would be so

The room is pleasant (we were in 15) with its own private courtyard (which we did not use) and a very private patio with a ceiling fan ( which we did) The bed is comfortable ( we like a hard bed) and the room is a reasonable size. There are only 2 drawers, both at floor level

What are your spa rates?
Surely you should ask the hotel. We were 2 persons in a room, so nor possible to answer your question.

A comida no Malabar house é simplismente surpreendente. Do café da manhã com as "dosas" inesquecíveis aos pratos especialmente elaborados e servidos no almoço ou jantar pelo Chef Binoy, a sua experiência gastronomica indiana será um marco na sua viagem. sem falar que o próprio Binoy oferece um curso de 3 a 4 horas da culinária indiana com ótimas explicações sobre o básico dos temperos e pratos muito saborosos. Vale a pena conferir.

"We were a group of Aussie friends and had four rooms on ground floor level, they were spacious, clean, comfortable and luxurious."
"room 17 was most quiet and checked room 3 and a couple of the roof garden rooms to arrive at this conclusion"
"Rooms around pool lack much daylight and room 7 outside area a no go. Bed was a platform which made access and dismounting awkward."
"Just walk and you will be well taken care of."
"All the rooms will be quiet so all will be suitable"
