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

We stayed here for three nights on a holiday weekend, a happy last minute find when some hotels were already full. The spacious, high-ceilinged, air-con room was not only very comfortable and a retreat from the heat, but elegant and opened out to the pool. Cooling off in the pool while drinking coconut water was just what we needed after... More

After a few days of staying in hostels, the Poovath was luxury. Air conditioned room, super clean. Bathroom was amazing. Great location, next to the beach, and about a 10 min walk to the Chinese fishing nets.

After travelling quite extensively over Kerala, we arrived in Fort Cochin and were delighted to find that we had booked our last 3 nights in the best hotel of all our travels.

This hotel I understand has recently been refurbished and is under new management. Some of the old photographs posted by guests are now misleading as the bathrooms are very modern and nicely fitted out. The air conditioning and fans work well. The hotel is located in its own grounds and is very private and secure. The buildings and contents are... More

the Poovath is a private place with perfect service although some restrictions given by the house structure. If people like the private style it is perfect - a boutique place.

Lovely old Dutch house positioned at the quieter end of Old Cochin. We had a delightful 1st floor corner room and balcony with views of the old Dutch cemetery, beach, Arabian Sea and stunning sunsets.
