The place is close to Jetty which makes it easy to commute to other island. Best option to get to this place is to Take a local boat from ernakulam port to Fort Cochin. Authentic Kerala food, Though the price seems to be little high the taste makes us feel great.

Fort House is my kind of place all the way. Rustic facade and unique rooms (no TVs. Ha!), tons of trees, interesting garden, and the best part - a PIER. Nothing works better for me than a mesmerizing waterfront and a chair on a pier to enjoy it from. It is located in the heart of Fort Kochi so there... More

Fort House has a simple rustic charm. The rooms are set around a plant-filled courtyard with chairs on the verandas outside. They are comfortable, with air con and a mini fridge and there is also Ayurveda massage available. But the star of the show is the restaurant, overlooking the river, which serves really excellent food. We ate here far more... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst traveling around India and was one of our favourite places we stayed. The staff were fantastic and room was clean and spacious. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Cochin. Already missing having breakfast by the water, make sure you order the Indian breakfast!

Nice hotel overlooking Kochi harbour, about 10 minutes from the fishing nets. Very welcoming greeting from the staff at reception, rooms were very nice, although the bed was a bit like a rock. Air conditioning very good. Lots of mosquitoes, ate outside overlooking the harbour and food was good and the view of life on the waters excellent.

We stayed at Fort house for three nights initially and loved it instantly. It's just outside the centre of Fort Kochi, about 5 minutes walk from the Chinese fishing nets and the market area. The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. The staff are all lovely and helpful, especially the owner/manager, who arranged cars for us and helped with... More

Brilliant service should come top of their list of accolades. They couldn't do enough, trying to sort out transport, recommendations, late checkout at no extra charge. The complimentary massage was a nice touch. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant is nothing special, but lovely to have right on your doorstep. Overall a very pleasing stay, and would definitely... More

I stayed 2 nights and found the hotel clean and tidy and the staff very welcoming and friendly. It was a great setting and although there are lots of mosquitos, the staff do everything to help prevent (coil, cream and fan at dinner). The meals were absolutely delicious and I wish I could have stayed longer to try more meals... More
