The Poovath proved to be a very comfortable home from home on our recent stay in Cochin. Sited very centrally near all the main tourist attractions and overlooking the ocean.It is smart and very clean. Run by charming staff who can't do enough to help. The chef dishes up the most delicious Kerelan fare.( no alcohol on site) We were... More

Great location - right in the heart of Fort Kochi. Beautiful views of the Arabian Sea and heritage buildings all around. Comfortable rooms, huge bathrooms to plan your day and reflect on the day's experiences. Thoroughly enjoyable food & dining experience where you can feel the breeze. What more can one ask for in a City Hotel ?

The rooms were large and the bathroom was lovely and very well appointed, but the breakfast was absolutely dreadful. We had expected the hotel would have been at the minimum a 4* but sadly it was only a 3*. There was no alcohol served at the Hotel at all due to the restrictions in Kerala about alcohol not being served... More

The Poovath is OK. Stayed there for 2 nights in November. It is a very, very long way from Kochi airport to Fort Kochi (1.5 hrs) where the Poovath is located. The property is a 10 room, heritage building alongside the old Dutch Cemetery. The room we had was very, very small. Had to unplug the mini fridge to plug... More

Our extended family of eight stayed at the Poovath. And we all loved it! The house itself was beautiful, extremely well maintained and very tastefully decorated. We had the entire first floor to ourselves. It was intimate and private while still generous and spacious. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Great care was taken to make our stay memorable.... More

The hotel is a beautiful traditional property. We had 2 rooms - a standard and a sea view. The sea view room was lovely although very expensive. The standard was a lovely room but quite small in comparison. All of the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful although the hotel does seem to be overstaffed. Wifi was very sporadic.... More

Takes you back in time with its beautifully kept old architecture and furniture. The rooms are large, very well maintained, and extremely comfortable! The staff is helpful, courteous, and made the overall experience a worthy stay.

This is centrally placed in the old town of Cochin and we could easily walk to all major points of interest. The hotel has areal old fashioned charm. The service by all the staff was excellent. The only problem , which is a feature of Cochin rather than this particular hotel was the number of mosquitoes. Food was fine and,... More
