Visited Hotel Fort Castle in October 2014. First off, let me say the staff at Hotel Fort Castle were helpful and very friendly in picking me up from the airport late at night. The Hotel is 3 minutes away from the Chinese Fishing Nets and beach. Hotel: Looks much nicer online. The exterior doesn’t look too bad but the interior... More

This hotel is located at a very good location at Fort Cochin. It is just near the bus stop and near the Chinese fishing net. The hotel is very comfortable. Rooms are exceptional for their rates. Cosy bed. Clean and decent bathrooms. Non stinking rooms. They also do your booking for Kathakali show. The staff there is very helpful. There... More

The hotel may be a little difficult to find but it is at a great location, comfortable, and has very friendly staff. A good deal for the cost. From here you can walk to the fishing nets, churches, beach walk, and local cricket field (great on Sundays) or take a rickshaw ride to othru sites for 60 rubber during the... More

This was a really nice little hotel in a very good location. I just wanted to send my appreciation to Patrick, the hotel owner, who really went out of his way for us. My friend and I were in a sudden panic as we forgot to print off our boarding passes the night before our flight. The hotel computer was... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as part of a small group tour of South India. The general standard of accommodation provided on the tour was quite disappointing and in comparison, Hotel Fort Castle came as a pleasant surprise. It was by no means luxurious but was clean and comfortable, quiet at night, our air conditioning and the... More

Good hotel to stay, reasonable. Very friendly and helpful staff. Especially Akash from the reception. The place is close to the Chinese fishing net and cafes. Also St Francis and Santa Cruz is walking distance. Will definitely recommend.

Picked this hotel due to the location and the photographs also for Kochin the price seemed reasonable but certainly not cheap. The location was very good however the photographs were very misleading, the outside of the hotel has no pot plants and only dirty gravel not a nice painted pathway. On arrival only one of our rooms were ready, however... More

Very basic, a clean room with Air Conditioning in a great location. I would hesitate to recommend this property to many of my clients, but for the thriftiest. The service at the hotel is sleepy and very young. They will go out of their way if 100 rupees tip is in it though. I would choose differently the next time... More

I can not believe that someone has rated that place as excellent. I guess it all depends on people standards. I often stay at budget places, but this one was really horrible. Plus side is that the location is OK. And wifi for me worked even in the room. And the A/C was on of the most silent in India.... More
