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

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.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are really disappointing to know that the hot water got delayed around 20 minutes and sorry for the inconvenience.
