We stayed at this well located, comfortable and well appointment hotel for four nights. From the moment Shamoun the hotel driver collected us at the airport in a large very clean new vehicle with wi-fi I knew we were going to be well looked after by Malabar House. Shamoun was a very good driver and took us back to the... More

We went for a Fine dining experience at Malabar Junction which is the restaurant of this hotel and there was a live Indian classical music performance. An awesome ambience and the food was mouth watering and delicious albeit slightly on the expensive side. Overall a wonderful experience and recommended for all.

After few day stay 6 month ago we was happy to see the Malabar House again. But friendly spoken, it was far away from the first stay. We haven't located the good service, the warm affability as well the food which we've expected. Sorry for the new team but we'll never come back. Lothar

One of the nicest features were the wooden chairs outside of all rooms, front side of hotel seeing children play football was good. Swimming pool is cozy, but relaxing nonetheless, and the ltd. .

Food excellent, quality matches the high price. Lovely courtyard, but watch out for the pigeons above, if you get my gist. Small pool whch is refreshing to the humidity of Cochin. Stylish bar upstairs but often quiet.

Nice hotel located in the center of FortKochi. Kind and smiling staff. Good restaurant and service. Helpful staff. Special thanks to Fousiya at the front desk who gave us some good informations for our city tour, reservations and place to go. She did a perfect job to make our stay comfortable. A place to go if you visit Fort Kochi.

Although we only had one night here, we thought it was a lovely relaxing place. The staff gave us an upgrade to a more spacious suite when they realised that we were only going to be there for such a short stay. We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the terrace by the wine bar with a delicious red wine.

This hotel is quite pricey, and you can probably find better value in India, but we found it lovely. The rooms are spacious and 'boutique', the courtyard nicely designed and the food is absolutely amazing. Best hotel food I have ever tasted, and the breakfast just seemed to go on forever - delicious! I'd go back just for the food!
