There are a lot of BnB/ Homestays in Fort Kochi but why I liked Fort Inn was because of its old dutch feel and the wooden work. The place has a character to it. As mentioned in other reviews too the lady Leena is very nice. She went out of her ways to help me since I was travelling alone.... More

I had a good time staying in fort inn , the hosts are really helpful and makes you feel at home . Leena and robin and their son were really charming. Good option to stay in fort kochi . Rooms are really spacious and good decor. Try opting for the balcony rooms.

Leena is splendid! She exemplifies all that is beautiful about the people of Kerela. This very modest Inn has sizable bedrooms with much needed air conditioning as it was extremely hot and humid when we visited Fort Kochi. At times the wifi was fast and at other times fitful. The beds are comfortable and the place is clean but the... More

I went to this guest house in Kochi and I loved it there. Lina is the woman running it and her and her lovely family take care of you as if you were part of the family. Clean rooms, quiet and nice colonial building. Lina is also a great cook so if you have the chance ask her to prepare... More

Big and comfortable room though needed some repair. Wonderful bed. A very slow (and mostly impossible) internet connection. A bit overpriced. The most important, the hospitality of Leena who provided us with all the needed information and tried her best to make us feel satisfied.

I'm sorry it's taken us so long to write a review as we stayed here nearly a year ago now. It was perfect, Linda is so welcoming and made us feel like part of the family. She was always there to answer questions and book anything we needed. Even when we were stuck for a bed one night (she was... More

A local merchant suggested we stay at the Fort Inn. After looking at the room with a balcony and a view of the ocean over the wall and through the buildings we decided to stay. The hospitality was excellent. Leena is an excellent cook!!!!!! Also, Leena helped us with all of our needs including organising a seamstress, shoe repair, washing... More

Everything about this hotel was excellent. It was right on the price. The location is convenient and quiet. Close to the ferry and the fishing nets, and not a long walk (5 min.) to the main tourist drag, without the hassle of touts outside your door. The room was extremely comfortable, with the best bed we have slept on in... More

We stayed in Fort Inn seven nights. It is a nice place to stay. Close to the Ernakulam ferry station and not far from other Kochi attractions like Chinese Fishing Nets. Leena, the manager, is a very kind and pleasant lady. Ask her to prepare you a dinner and you'll have a different view about the Kerala style food. She... More
