We spent two nights here during our five week stay in India. This hotel is basic in almost all aspects: the room, the location, the food and the staff. When we came we were put in the old section which was pretty run done. They moved us for the second night. The room was slightly better. However, the room was... More

This hotel is clean and has a delightful restaurant (no alcohol) on a jetty overlooking the approaches to Kochi harbour. Superb Aruvedic massages on site at a reasonable cost and the attractions of Old Kochi are within walking distance.Rooms face a beautiful shaded garden and there is a small porch with easy chairs outside each room. Morning yoga, friendly staff... More

I stayed here with parents in January. The hotel is lovely and the restaurant on the pier has some of the best food in Kochi. The location is very nice cuz its a little away from the most touristy areas. But the best part of the hotel is Meena, who runs the travel desk. She saved our trip when we... More

We stayed one night in January in the Fort House. Great location in Fort Kochi - right at the sea, between two ferry ports, 5min Atul brings you to all tourist locations. Kochi Biennale 2015 location is less than 100 meters away. The Biennale was a highlight - really recommended! Restaurant was great - both food and the superb location... More

We stayed here 2 nights and loved this quiet, small hotel. Pleasant rustic room which even had free tubes of Odomus mosquito cream, which is well recommended! Great to have tea making facilities in the room. The setting is so pretty, with a lovely courtyard. Breakfast was amazing, sitting out overlooking the river with all its activity. Would definitely stay... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in early January. We arrive late and yet they still arranged some grilled fish at the lovely lakeside restaurant. The rooms were lovely and spacious. Very clean and the hotel was really beautiful. Ate at the restaurant on 2nd night too. Yum. Finally, breakfast was superb.

We arrived at Fort House for the opening of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 on Friday 12 December. (The Biennale continues until 29 March 2015. Its details can be found here: http://kochimuzirisbiennale.org/) Luckily, having booked the previous March, we got a room right at the seaward end of the first floor (in Americanspeak, the second floor) balcony.

Location - perfect. Food - fabulous. Service - excellent. Rooms - neat and tidy. Such a well managed place right in the middle of one of the most picturesque locations in Kochi. The ambience is bang on. And the best part is that there is no television in the room. Ah - what silence at night. Highly recommended for the... More

This a charming small hotel with the most attentive service. You would'nt think that the hotel was had great looks but indeed it does, for the view from the street does not show the real feeling of splendor and elegance. Tuck away at the rear of of the hotel is the back waters with ships and boats criss crossing. To... More
