After a poor first night, we had a very enjoyable stay. We were spoilt by the staff and the food was excellent, although breakfast was very basic. Being right in the heart of Fort Kochi, we found it very easy to move around by either foot or ferry, we weren't game to try the local buses. All in all, an... More

Our room was nice, albeit a little stale. The bathroom was better than average. The air con struggled to keep us cool - I think in part because the room's occupancy sensor didn't work right. The pool exceeded our expectations, though the towels whereabouts were a bit of a secret ( and not consistent enough for me to reveal). We... More

I'd like to hold my promise and communicate that this hotel is an overall charming place with also charming staff, specially at the reception. We enjoyed the rather huge pool and the proximity to the tradirionel theatre.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip and again on our last night. Nothing fancy, but clean, comfortable, spacious rooms, helpful staff and a great location in the heart of Fort Kochi. Breakfast was a bit basic in the rather gloomy dining room, but food in the restaurant was good. Swimming pool lacks nice seating... More

For individual travelling people the price they charged per night was compared to all other Hotels we have booked in India far to expensive 8800 RS / 127 €. Th real good quality we experienced we got elsewhee minimum 40% cheaper. I think that groups get booking far cheaper. We have India travelling knowledge for more than six years and... More

My family and I stayed for 4 days in January and were really happy with The Killians. It's in a great location, the staff are so accommodating and wanting to please, rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. The pool was excellent for my children and the restaurant served delicious meals - some of the best in town.... More

This hotel is not top of the line but is very comfortable and well located in Cochin, close to the main square, promenade, ferry, etc. The rooms are quite large and the staff throughout the hotel could not be more accommodating and gracious. There is a nice size pool in the center of the hotel that can be used for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over New Year. The location is OK and given the fact that a very busy road runs in front of the hotel, our room was very quiet - fortunately facing the rear of the site. The room was a good size and had 2 comfortable beds. The showerroom was adequate. Furnishings in no way... More

We enjoyed staying at the Killians, and found the room clean, the bed comfortable and the location is great. Its opposite a ferry terminal so not the quietest spot, but good for seeing Fort Kochi. The breakfast wasn't great, a lacklustre buffet that didn't really set us up for the day. Food at dinner, especially the tandoori, was good though.... More
