We had travelled from Chennai and the check in was smooth, rooms in the main block were pretty good, we were given rooms on the 2nd floor facing the back waters and the view was spectacular. It was soothing to see the... More

The location itself is a winner and I am sure the Dutch house adds to the beauty of the place. Rooms are nice and staff are good..hardly felt that the place is run by the Govt. Location at times gives a feeling of being in Singapore. A 2 day stay is good.

I made the mistake of booking in advance and paying for my 3 day trip to Kochi. Big Mistake. I realised this the minute I landed at the hotel. When I wanted to take the ferry close to the hotel, I was informed that the ferry service was under repairs. When I asked for them to call me an auto... More

Its an Heritage hotel in city of Cochi. The hotels is ideally located on the island and assessable by a Boat or through a very narrow winding road which can take only a tata nano or something similar if that exists. Ideal choice is to take the ferry to reach to the hotel. Once you are in you are in... More
