We booked to stay here in October 2015 using a reputable online booking agency which we've used many times very successfully. The booking included free cancellation. Due to itinerary changes we cancelled the booking 24 hours later. We received the cancellation confirmation from the online agency and thought no more of it. 2 months later to my dismay I discovered... More

Just to clarify, it is not in our regular policy to charge even if cancellation has been made.there has been some technical error from the bank which has been notified to the bank and... More

We spent 3 nights here at the end of a 3 week trip to Southern India and wanted some recovery time in Cochin. Limited number of rooms, but we had a downstairs spacious room just off the courtyard and swimming pool area, and very close to the dining area. The suite was spacious, comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom... More

We had the suite when we stayed at the hotel, due to the other rooms being full, and it was such a treat! We had our own terrace with patio furniture, a room on two floors, and the bed was huge! Everything was immaculate, the welcome was exceptional, the staff were particularly attentive, and the decor was just stunning. The... More

First of all, this hotel's website does it no justice. if it hadn't been recommended by Conde Nast Traveller, I'd probably have passed it by. I'm so glad I didn't. It's so stylish, you immediately wish it were your own home. Great use of art and antiques, plus quiet a/c and trendy bathrooms make for a pampered and relaxed stay.... More

Away from all the large beach side hotels you will find Malabar House a charming retreat from which to explore old Kochi. The central location just off the parade ground is perfect starting point to walk the old town. From the moment you reach the stylishly designed atrium reception you are made to feel welcome.

The Malabar House feels like a home away from home. The rooms are done beautifully in Kerala style with four poster beds and plantation chairs in the balcony. The pool is small but the hotel is magical by night with musicians. The chef is brilliant and the food is something that you will remember for long. The highlight is the... More
