After a night in a small, noisy sweat box in a cheap hotel in Fort Kochi I found Hotel Heritage Methanam on Hotels.com. I immediately changed hotels for thje better!
Hotel Methanam is about 16 kilometres out of Fort Kochi; 150 -200 rupees in a rickshaw.
It was perfect - big room with high ceiling and heritage surrounds. A great bed tops off the comfort. There is a small pool in which you can cool off whilst looking at old Chinese fishing nets in the waters near the hotel. The staff are very friendly and the hotel restaurant provides tasty dishes - especially local fish curries. It provided me with a comfortable, friendly and cool last 2 nights in South India.
