We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of May, which is the end of peak season so were offered an upgrade to our room when we arrived. The place is nice and quiet with a very pretty courtyard in the middle. It is an old hotel so the style is very traditional but everything is very clean. Breakfast... More

This is a lovely hotel. It is designed in the old colonial style with lots of wooden floors and furniture and is maintained beautifully. My room was furnished with both air conditioning and ceiling fan and the four poster bed had a mosquito net covering it. It was very roomy and clean and also had hairdryer in shower room, which...

Great introduction to Cochin. The hotel is located in an old house, with wood paneling and high ceilings. It has a very friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast and excellent wi fi in central area (not in the rooms). The room was very quiet. The hotel is centrally located. There is no fitness center but the staff recommended one that... More

A stay in the Old Courtyard Hotel was a great start to our kerala trip. About an hours taxi drive from Cochin Airport brings you into the heart of Fort Cochin where the hotel is located. The rooms are furnished simply with antique pieces and have all the mod cons including wifi. A central courtyard holds a number of tables... More

I had read great reviews, but my experience was not positive at all. I'll start with the good things, though: great breakfast, good location in the middle of everything, and friendly staff. Cons: Our mattress smelled really badly of something. Smelled like urine, but I'm telling myself it was maybe because of muggy/damp climate. Although I've stayed in many humid... More

Thank you for your feedback. The Housekeeping Department has been alerted of your complain. As the whole hotel has been occupied continuously since December, we have been unable to air the mattresses. Although the mattress protector is changed constantly, it is inevitable that some smell will develop with the combination of air conditioning and humidity. We do however feel that... More

We stayed here by default as our preferred hotels were booked -- but we are glad that we did. This was an old Portuguese house and with authenticity and history comes some inconvenience. My friends were in the large 3rd floor walkup with high ceilings. I am not sure how many rooms are on the ground floor but this place... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for the feedback. We checked the curtains in the rooms you have mentioned and unfortunately due to the pillars in the room, even more curtains will not be possible. Instead we have decided to color tint the upper windows to minimize the light in the room in the night time and the glare in the mornings.... More

This was our third trip to the Old Courtyard and it's as charming as ever. Lovely old world charm, one of the most characterful places we've ever stayed in. The restaurant is amazing, don't be put off by the lack of alcohol (all the BEST places iN Cochin don't serve it). The lunch thali is incredible value and delicious. Breakfasts... More
