I only went here for drinks but the setting was so nice and so were the bar tenders. It was a perfect spot to meet up with friends, or have a romantic evening. The wine and beer selection was better then most places is Cochin

The Google taste,the grace and fantastic location makes it the place to stay in Fort Cochi.We loved it.And the restaurant is fantastic!...

I chose the Malabar House Hotel simply because of it's location-- i was in Kochi for a weekend and i had dedicated the weekend to the Biennale. So this location made sense. I typically stay at the Taj Malabar-- this hotel was priced exactly the same-- so one expects a certain level of service. While the hotel is charming, the...

I have always wanted to stay at this hotel and we booked 2 rooms for 3 nights. When we arrived the manager told us they were overbooked so we agreed to spend the first night in a modern annex. We didn't mind too much because we understand that these things happen. In recompense the manager said he'd upgrade us to...

Such a special hotel to stay. The rooms are beautifully furnished, the art work just gorgeous. Super helpful staff, friendly and excellent food at the restaurant. What a good space to start winding down after three weeks in crazy, chaotic and beautiful India.

This little boutique hotel is a transformed villa in a beautiful neighbourhood in Fort Cochin. Each room is different. We unfortunately had a smaller damp room in the ground floor and the tiny pool just behind the reception is not really meant to use but still this house is worth staying and practically in the centre of the old city.

This is a beautiful little hotel. The room was gorgeous and spotless, the hotel is lovely and the staff could not have been nicer. We were staying here as part of our honeymoon and they gave us some wine and a cake on the house as well as making up our room specially. The breakfast is delicious with a range...

This place has artistic ambience, great location (close to Biennale venues) and worth a visit for those who want to experience authenticity of Old Kerala culture! We lived at other hotel across the street & casually visited the Malabar restaurant for dinner. The kerala food did not disappoint us. Very pleasant manager Mr. Vinaya greeted us, recommended their specialities and...
