We chose the Tea Bungalow as it looked like a lovely historical building and because of its location in Fort Cochin. It met our needs on both fronts.
We booked directly through the hotel - which necessitated an international funds transfer of the deposit, but that was not difficult to arrange, as we had done this on prevfious occasions.
Thye hotel staff arranged a transfer from Allepey to Fort Kochin and this went smoothly.
On arrival at the hotel, the reception person was friendly and efficient. Our room (Heritage Premium Room for the 3 nights ) was on the first floor (please be aware there is no elevator) overlooking the pool (no disturbance) and verdant garden. The room itself was clean and beautifully appointed with timber furniture in keeping with the heritage of the hotel.
The included breakfast - toast, fruit and eggs was delicious.
The location was great - walking distance to Fort Kochi beach promenade, (the must see) Chinese fishing nets, St. Francis Church, Santa Cruz Basilica and many good restaurants and cafes.
Definitely a highlight of our stay in India.More
