This really is a find. We came here 10 years ago when they were about to open and they treated us so well that we thought we should rebook on a 2nd visit to Cochin, never expecting to be remembered or even to repeat the excellence of our first visit. They could not have done more - the front of... More

A totally relaxing and calming ambience greets one as they enter this truly magnificent hotel. Very tastefully decorated in keeping with its style. The staff are quietly efficient and helpful with attention to detail and the food is delicious My room was a fragrant haven - three nights were not enough and I did not want to leave. The hotel...

A very charming hotel, with friendly staff and wonderful old world settings. There are quite a few boutique hotels in this part of town, though this one is a true gem. The small size gives a very cozy atmosphere. The location is perfect for walking around and exploring the neighborhood. There is a park in front of the hotel with... More

We stayed at Old Harbour Hotel Fort Kochi for 1 night on 13th August. Right from the time of checkin to a reluctant check-out just 24 hours later - We had the most amazing experience. The property itself is a beautifully restored old Bungalow - with all the Dutch-French-Portuguese colonial charms. Spacious, well decorated and airy rooms with a view... More

This is a charming hotel in Fort Kochi. Great food, excellent service and helpful staff for travel assistance or anything else the guests need. The rooms are spacious and unique in their decor. Its a cosy place - not too many rooms and no swarms of guests in restaurants and common places. We went to nearby points in Fort Kochi,... More

The hotel was absolutely beautiful. From the moment you walk in you feel like you've stepped back in time into someones home and are greeted with the friendliest staff. We would go back again and enjoy this beautiful gem. The food, service and staff were so kind to us - we would fly back again for the A class service.... More

We had a fantastic dinner at the restaurant of this colonial hotel, finely renovated. The atmosphere was relaxing and really fascinating. The staff was really careful and kind. Food was excellent, with a great variety of traditional dishes. I would highly recommend seafood curries.

A delightful hotel with friendly service and great ambiance. The public spaces were tastefully furnished with old world charm while our suite was a delight to come back to after the hustle and bustle outside. Loved the spacious high ceiling room decorated with contemporary art pieces and the old fashioned swing in the enclosed balcony. The daily highlights were the... More

This is a place to chill after or during your travels through India. Time seems to stand still. The location is great and very close to all the sights. The garden and pool are very nice. The breakfast could be improved with a buffet. The rooms are large and clean. We were flying in the evening and were allowed to... More

I stayed at the Old Harbor Hotel at the recommendation of my cousin during a super HOT time of year (end of April/early May) and it was absolutely the most lovely experience despite the heat. I was greeted immediately with a cool coconut water and shown to my room where my luggage showed up shortly after. I had a Garden... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel'. A 300 year- old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more   less
