This hotel is just outside the historic Fort Cochin area, but is very well placed for walking to the sights, for example you can walk to the Chinese fishing nets in 10/15 minutes. We had a lovely room, which was possibly the cleanest we had in India, it was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was modern, and the plumbing worked well, not something that you find in every Indian hotel. Our room faced the road, which was noisy during the day, but reasonably quiet at night.
The hotel has a small restaurant, and a nice roof top swimming pool. The restaurant has a rather modest menu, but all the food is freshly cooked, and of very good quality.
The hotel has a very small garden, and does not have any comfortable lounge, so there is nowhere to relax and cool off (with a cold drink) after a days sightseeing. The hotel has a strictly enforced no alcohol policy, so unless you want warm beer in the seclusion of your room, you need to go elsewhere for a drink (plenty of choice in Fort Cochin). This is a shame, as for me, it took the edge off what is otherwise a very fine hotel.
The staff are very helpful and friendly. Free Internet access and mineral water are available.
