We started our tour of Kerala with 2 nights here. As soon as we walked through the door we felt relaxed and looked after. The staff were super friendly and the location is perfect. The pool is lovely, the rooms spacious and the breakfasts delicious. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Jude and Vineetha were fantastic hosts.....particularly as the hotel was full so we stayed in Dreamz, just down the road. The service we received was faultless.
The facilities were excellent....do watch out for the crows, particularly when sun bathing around the pool as they make quite a mess! The food was delicious and put the Brunton Boatyard to shame.
Great location and thoroughly recommended.

Lovely old colonial building very close to the Chinese fishing nets. High quality interior design and huge rooms. Sadly we were only staying one night and had to leave before breakfast. The restaurant was lovely, and as we were staying in the hotel, we had the best table right next to the pool with live music. The choices on the menu were a bit biased towards western tastes but for one night there were enough local choices for it to be good.

The Old Harbour Hotel is perfect, in every way - location, value, food and the two beauitful garden villas which we had were beautiful and the shower area so clever with its outdoor feel. Jude, I think the manager, was so helpful. The Yoga on the roof top was very good.

Room Tip: The Garden Villas were beautiful

I stayed here with a group of friends traveling through India together and this was one of our favorite places we stayed at in India. The service is super friendly and the location could not possibly be better. We loved the overall ambiance of the place and the rooms are very clean, charming and extremely spacious. The restaurant serves excellent food and although the service is very friendly, it is slow and sporadic at times.
The only thing I would change is to make a few rooms available that have separate beds in them. We had a group of people sharing rooms that would have like to have had their own private beds rather than having to share a large bed.
Otherwise, the place is lovely and I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to all my friends traveling to Cochin.

We stayed in Old Harbour Hotel on September 2012 for 4 nights. It's a great boutique hotel, perfectly located with a wonderful garden and swimming pool.

The service was great ,the room was cleaned twice a daywith fresh flower decorations. Food was excellent, and it's one of the few places in town that serve alcohol. Not only free wifi, there is also a possibility to use a common laptop.

Thank you Jude and the rest of the staff !

This old mansion in the center of Kochi is beautiful and very relaxing. The staff is nice and efficient, the rooms are clean, the garden is enjoyable. The hotel is full of artworks of great taste.
Two things could be improved to reach perfection. A breakfast more "indian" and less "occidental" and a better and more stable wi-fi .
Certainly a very good value.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more   less
