i am really sad that i got to spend only 1 night in this wonderful hotel despite my reservation for 2 days. me and my wife with our infant checked into this hotel on 16th march and were due to return again for 20th march, but had to cancel because of some reasons. Anyways... as for the hotel.. it is in fort kochi, an excellent old portugese town, preserved the way it should be. The hotel is equipped with all modern facilities yet retains the boutique charm in its interiors. Got a very warm welcome, with an excellent juice as an welcome drink, extreamly comfortable bed, a nice sit out.. and the best part the bathroom.. very nice... hats off to the person who has done the interiors. The staff was very polite and courteous. The only reason it misses out on being excellent is because of the food, which i would say didnt suit my palate, had lunch there which was not satisfactory...but again.. wouldn't say its food is bad as the restaurant East Indies is ranked 11 out of 400 restaurants in kochi... my guess is the food is made to suit the foreign palate.. as they are the max residents of the hotel...also the second point is that a tv should be there in the room as the town shuts at 10... and one needs some extra recreation on a holiday....
