Not fancy, not shiny new, but a hotel that has character, while still being comfortable, and clean with a good bed and spacious shower. The staff was friendly. And wifi kinda worked. Easy on the pocket book, and in the middle of everything in the old Fort Kochi area.

The hotel was beautifully arranged with individual furniture in each room. Staff friendly, helpful and relaxed. Location was excellent. Not a very wide range of food on offer both for breakfast and in the accompanying café.

This is not the most popular or most sought after place in Fort Kochi. But that's it's beauty. We stayed here and checked out almost all the heritage properties in the vicinity. Old courtyard is yet to get the commercial touch...a very old house, decently managed by a handful of homely staffs, mostly local ladies. The hotel lobby, courtyard, verandas,... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. The Old Courtyard Hotel is not marketed commercially which makes it more desirable to our guests. The helpful and efficient staff makes the experience in the Old Courtyard Hotel personal. As we are surrounded by tons of restaurant (being centrally located), management has decided not to have a restaurant but instead have a... More

Terrific staff who did their best to accommodate me. Beautiful old four-poster bed. A good shower and a very convenient location. You'll love this place. The orchids in the garden were pretty good, too.

Really lovely simple hotel in a traditional old beautifully restored building. The rooms were beautifully decorated with heritage furniture and were very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring Cochin, right in the middle of the old fort area but not too noisy in the rooms either. The staff were helpful and polite. Very good value for money,... More

This little hotel is very lovely. It is very central to the heart of Fort Cochi, yet once inside the doors it is very calm. The rooms are nicely appointed and spacious. The heritage style of the hotel is very attractive. There is no dinner available, and the breakfast is only very basic. Apart from that, its an excellent base... More

Really nice place and centrally located. Lovely courtyard garden at the back. All the staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Didn't eat here but the coffee in the morning tasted great. Wifi is available but alas, typically slow.

Well located and large creaky rooms. We really liked it. The sounds from other rooms can be heard and we had a bit of a leak but this is what you expect in a historic place. Location wise it is central and excellent. Service was friendly and efficient and we would happily stay again.

Still worth a visit and very well placed for all the sights of Fort Cochin. Breakfast is available but the restaurant no longer functions so no evening meals available. The in-house tour adviser is very helpful but overpriced and we saved at least 35% by diy. The check-in was smooth and our room on the top floor was spacious but... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. The building which is about 200 years old, needs constant care and attention. The wooden floors have been recently polished and rooms and common areas repainted. We do not encourage people with mobility problems to stay on the higher floors. However, it does happen and we always try to help them by either... More

Lovingly preserved and well maintained piece of history (read about it and see old photos along the staircase) - just the kind of stay we were looking for in this magical precinct of Fort Kochi. Each room is like no other since they all have been carved out of an erstwhile private residence, some rooms more accessible than others, but... More
