Easy walking to most attractions and those that were a little further away are more easily accessed via rickshaw. Haggle on the price though and ensure your driver has a pleasant demeanour and you will get a guided tour thrown in. The hotel itself however was a bit of a let down. No alcohol license ( not their fault as... More

The breakfast staff were very kind and the food was good. The hotel is well located within easy walking distance of the major attractions of Fort Cochin. We made some... More

A beautiful hotel no doubt, but at $170 CAD per night, was not even remotely worth what the property offers. Who the heck pays almost $200/night at a hotel in India? We had a few issues with the room once we got in. The ac was functioning properly and there was no wifi in the room as we were told.... More

The staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean, and bed comfortable. There was a good choice of food for breakfast. The location is central,restaurants within walking distance,and a hotel nearby where you can have a glass of wine and beer, It is easy to walk around the area visiting various sites that are recommended in Cochin old town.
