We were pleased that our agent booked this hotel for our stay in Kochi. This is a traditional colonial style property with simple furnishings. All the rooms have balconies and overlook the sea which is very pleasant. Being by the water there was nearly always a cooling breeze. BUT what you don't see in pictures is that the hotel is...

What a fabulous hotel experience. Our suite was bigger then most apartments overlooking the working harbor and pool. Activities offered are sunset cruise, cooking demos, yoga & meditation, kathakali performance, just to name a few. Everyone is extremely helpful. Highly recommend staying here

Fort Cochin is a gorgeous place to be and staying at this hotel made it perfect. The exterior or the hotel is quite plain but the cool and airy interior is a delight and the rooms are spacious and kept immaculately. Excellent bathroom and great beds. Good location. But what really makes the place is the service from every member...

Stayed two days at the hotel.Nice colonial feeling,good location but nothing else is really remarkable.Staff is ok but again not exeptional.Breakfast is bad,considering that the hotel advertises and prices itself as a 5* establishment.Standard room is over 400USD,wich is steeply higher than it should be.Would not consider to stay there again....

The property is perfectly located on the water on one of the main thoroughfares of Fort Cochi and provides a perfect location to explore the city and relax while watching the world go by. It really is an old Boatyard but it has been fully renovated in the period style while incorporating modern conveniences. Because of its origins the rooms...

After a lengthy air travel trip what a delightful hotel to be staying at. My friend and I had a spacious twin room albeit high platform beds that were soft but exceedingly comfortable. Bathroom was huge with a separate bath and all the usual amenities. Breakfast was a delight overlooking the waterway, with the hustle and bustle you would expect...

This is a truly beautiful, spacious and tranquil hotel, apart from noisy air con. However the service is friendly but inefficient. They need an Oberoi type training programme. Do not disturb notices routinely ignored and requests took a long time to meet. And the beds are very hard! Although it's not their fault, dry days in Kerala are maddening and...
