We stayed at this very charming and comfortable hotel on Feb 4th for two nights. The process of booking on line was very prompt. We were picked up from the Ernakulum train station and brought to this very tastefully renovated old Dutch/Portuguese colonial home. The owners of this small hotel have saved this heritage property from wrecking ball. It is within walking distance to some nice restaurants, shopping and a short TukTuk ride to the Jew-town.
The food was excellent with a wonderful view over a well maintained garden and a swimming pool. We stayed in the Princess suite which is the best room gave us . We looked in to a couple of other rooms and they were excellent too.
Check in process was very smooth and the staff was very polite and friendly. They arranged a safe driver to drop us to the Kochi airport after midnight.
