We rather came round to Malabar House by the end, and I will say that the manageress was hugely helpful and kind. This was the last place we stayed on a three week trip to India and as it was over £340 a night, (booked direct with the hotel) and a Relais and Chateaux Hotel, we were expecting something a...

Malabar House is a beautiful property, with helpful staff, in the heart of Kochi. Our room was artsy and comfortable. Two thumbs up definitely (just head somewhere else for dinner - see restaurant review).

The visit to the Malabar House in Kochi was the first stage of our first visit to India. We were given a warm welcome and the desk staff were always helpful. The quality of the food was good and served in a pretty courtyard. HOWEVER the hotel itself was disappointing. Our upstairs room with a large balcony was "tired". It... More

We stayed here from 4th - 6th Feburary 2015. We had a warm friendly welcome, a lovely cool drink. A great breakfast. Do ask for a Dosa or Indian breakfast if you want one, it's not on display. There is more than enough to eat. Nice, clean, room. Very comfortable bed. Quiet. Lovely atmosphere. Enchanting places to sit. Not much... More

Nice hotel and very close to what you want to see. Rooms good but slightly on the small side. Food is excellent but service a little below par with the exception of reception. The need to repeat requests very common, sometimes you get what you asked for sometimes you don't. Remember in India you get power cuts and this hotel... More

However the Malabar House was an oasis in the midst of chaos. very comfortable rooms. the in house restaurant also was... More

I really enjoyed the lovely atmosphere and tasty food there in their restaurant. The waiters are very friendly and tourist friendly. The hotel is sitiated in the heart of the city but really quite atmosphere inside the hotel. The rate is also affordable

Malabar House was the first hotel we've stayed at in India and proved to be an excellent introduction. The welcome was extremely friendly and courteous , whilst the outside area was a delightful place in which to eat and relax, watching a kingfisher by day and bats by night. A group played Indian music gently whilst we ate the delicious... More

I just come back from Kerala where I stayed as usual in Malabar House Cochin and the property of Serenity in the hills. It always feels like coming home. The comfort of the rooms, the friendly staff and the exquisite food always assure me a very happy stay. If you go to Kerala, I truly can recommend you to stay... More
