This is the type of hotel that I personally adore. A place that has character, personality and that offers all the comforts of home. Le Colonial it is!! Great location, very attentive staff, specially, the two young men that work around the hotel, serving meals, drinks, and attending to all your needs. A hotel with delicious food, comfortable rooms and... More

This was the first stop on our trip and we arrived exhausted and slept most of the day. Check in, performed on one of the sofas, was swift, with hot towels and a cooling drink. The initial room we were checked into was quite noisy. Tipu sultan. It backed onto the road and the constant beeping of horns, a past... More

You definitley get the feeling that you are in an historic house as soon as you walk inside Le Colonial. The stories about the place abound, along with old photographs and documents on the walls, and though it's all been updated to modern standards, the place has "good bones" as our architect friends would say, and they kept as much...

We have travelled enough in India to realise that there are several foreign owned hotels charging extreme prices but not delivering on basics whereas the cheaper hotels are maintaining clean rooms with good wifi. The other issue is you can clearly have different experiences depending on the room you are given and the service. We moved rooms due to a... More

We stayed here for three nights on our arrival in Kochin and couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The rooms were large and comfortable and furnished in a colonial style, not surprisingly; we also had a verandah overlooking the garden.

This place was truly a home away from home!! We (my wife and I) have never felt so comfortable in a hotel as we did here. They classify it as a non-hotel and we now understand why. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, then this is probably not the place for you but if you are looking... More
