What a beautiful, boutique, authentic, classy hotel! The location is perfect, 2 mins stroll to the Chinese fishing nets and local street market. The gardens and pool are wonderful. Rooms stunning, views across the garden beautiful but what made this a very special visit to us was the staff. The Manager was wonderful, the guys waiting on we're so attentive... More

We are a family of five and would highly recommend staying at the old harbour hotel. The staff are wonderful, the pool and grounds are beautiful and the ambiance is lovely. The staff are informal in their approach and always happy to help they were very helpful with our children. The area around is interesting and fun to wonder into... More

I only stayed in the hotel for one night though i wish it had been longer. Thinking of a return trip to Kochi just for the pleasure of staying here again! And the next time i'll be sure to carry my swimsuit. The location is ideal for tourists as you are within walking distance of the basilica, the oldest European... More

Mere words are not adequate to describe the magnificent experience we had staying at the Old Harbour Hotel this week. First of all, the place is absolutely beautiful. The building, rooms and grounds are impeccable. It does not feel like a hotel at all. The rooms are distinctive, spacious, tastefully appointed, private, quiet and peaceful. The gardens are gorgeous. The... More

Out of our 3 week Indian adventure, this was our favourite hotel. It was charming, beautifully furnished and an absolute delight to stay in. We got a very warm welcome from the staff who took their time to talk to guests. The room was gorgeous and the bed very comfortable. Throughout the hotel there were beautiful antiques, original pieces of... More

We arrived late evening after much-delayed flights. The staff were very welcoming and showed us to a splendid, large but simply-furnished room with a very comfortable bed. We decided to eat in the garden and were delighted to have done so: lobster and prawns arrived , cooked to perfection in a simple light creamy sauce which allowed all the fresh... More

Walking into Old Harbour Hotel was like walking back through time. Our room smelled of fresh citrus fruit and was large, airy and well lit. There was an antique phone on the desk which actually worked and all the electric fittings were genuine antique ones(I wonder how they manage to replace them?). The only modern touch was the split A/C... More

Fort Kochi is where most of the tourist attractions are located so this time we decided to splurge on our Cochin trip. Instead of staying at Ernakulam we decided to stay at Fort Kochi, and The Old Harbour Hotel came highly recommended. This is a very charming old world property which has been maintained very well and is certainly worth... More

I stayed here during a trip to Kerala with my family. It is one of the few places where I would like to come again. The staff were very caring and the food was amazing. And the best thing about this hotel is it's looks and the elegant interiors. Totally worth the price.

Located right on the tip of Fort Kochi on the beach, the hotel is majestic, decorated tastefully and maintained impeccably..... it gives an old world charm and feel of colonial Kochi. The rooms are spacious, airy, beautifully but simply decorated. The special touches of fresh jasmine flower kept in the room every night, tea maker, chilled beer and wine in... More
