The Old Harbour was exactly what we needed after several weeks touring the golden triangle, with all its noise and traffic and honking and stress. Here, we found peace, serenity, wonderful light food, lovely atmospheric music, large comfortable beds, and exquisitely attentive care to our needs. They arranged whatever we wanted at the last minute, and we were always pleased.... More

This hotel deserves its high ranking on tripadvisor. It is a classy colonial style hotel in an excellent location with fantastic staff. The building has a lot of character and is tastefully decorated. Rooms are large with good air conditioning and lovely bathrooms. Garden view rooms have a great balcony that overlooks the pool. The pool is amazing. Better still... More

Beautiful hotel, with a relaxed, laid back attitude. For the first time there were no rules- wonderful swimming pool,pretty garden which was lit up at night, delicious food served in the garden. nothing was too much trouble and we were only sad it was on our last night that we discovered this gem.

Would agree with all of the fantastic reviews for this hotel. It is like stepping into an oasis from the chaos that is the harbour front of Fort Cochin, however you can't escape the city noise of car horns etc. Also as we visited over the New Year, there was a stage where karaoke was being performed badly all day....

We absolutely loved the Old Harbour Hotel, the building itself is stunning and the eye for detail in the furnishings and furniture impressive. The staff were all absolutely charming and so helpful ...paticularly enjoyed the daily ritual of feeding the monkey who visited every day a banana on a long pole. The food was delicious and eating in the candlelit... More

Perfect place to stay in kochi if you like the intriguing colonial past. A nice pool add to touch. Best is the bastion room. One thing for Indian travellers. The food here is bland, made for foreigners who are not used to hot Indian masalas. So tell the staff Beforehand that you need a spicy food. I was so angry... More

Old Harbour should serve as a playbook on how to give hotel guests a wonderful experience in a beautiful, heritage setting. The building itself is stunning, with well-curated rooms and social areas. We stayed in a garden bungalow which had the bonus of an outdoor bathroom. Location couldn't be better with major attractions of Fort Cochin within a 5-minute radius.... More

We stayed here for just 2 nights. The hotel is a wonderful renovation full of interesting antiques and quirky accessories. Fantastic selection of art publications in our room. We found the staff all very helpful and friendly and our room was a lovely cool retreat after a tour around Fort Cochin on a very hot humid day. We ate in... More

Stayed over Christmas with family. Quite a relief to step inside the Old Harbour as at times the hustle and Bustle outside verged on too much. Amazing rooms, The Princess suite is fantastic and the hotel extremely clean. Staff were very helpful, young and eager to please. Food was very good, we ate lunchtimes and odd evenings in The hotel... More
