These were fabulous and a real treat, pity no guide book as you cannot take photos in the Museum. It was helpful that we had a local guide to explain.

Definitely worth hiring a driver to take you to Mattancherry. It's fascinating. Ask to visit the laundry, the Jewish synagogue and the Dutch Palace. There are also lots of colourful shops selling clothes, souvenirs and spices.

Good place to walk around with interesting shops and some sights nearby (Synagogue and Dutch Museum). Good for shopping from clothes to spices The big negative is all the TukTuk drivers who will try and get you into shops. Even if you agree a price up front, they still try and reduce it to bring you somewhere to the point... More

The place itself would be nice. But it is all just build up for tourists. The shop owners and ricksaw drivers are really annoying and spoil all the nice atmosphere. While walking around it is a constant hassle. Be careful in the shops - a lot of products are of very low quality and they are extremely expensive.

Good place to visit and wander around when in Kochi. Gets busy so go first thing or later in the day to avoid the queues. Entrance fee is 5 rupees and they don't like giving change so try have correct money.

I like the waters, as does anyone from the land locked kingdom of Delhi. Mattancherry offers a window into the laid back, simplistic life of fishermen, and men of means and resources. Though a little crowded, the place is not like many others that dons a mask for tourists - it is raw, and what you see is what you... More

We stayed at the hotel for a day when on a business trip. The property is located on Marine Drive overlooking the sea. Most of the rooms have a sea view i guess since we had three rooms in different wings and all of them overlooked the sea. The rooms are slightly smaller by Gateway standards. Other facilities in the... More
