A calm, verdant oasis of a hotel. Beautiful old teak furniture and floors. The staff are charming and attentive. The interior of the hotel is old fashioned elegance but the bathrooms are excellent, clean and modern, not at all Indian. My favourite place is the swimming pool, set in lush exotic gardens, with extraordinary plants and bats flying at night.... More

Each room/cottage and suite has its own charm. The place is cozy. We felt like we belong right away. We stayed in the garden view... More

There is a charming little swimming pool and a lily pool amidst the emerald green of foliage . We stayed in a first floor room with palm shaded balcony overlooking the... More

My theory is that people who exercise do everything better than others. The owner, Edgar, is a marathoner so he runs between Kashi cafe & Old harbour hotel and is ever so keen to look after his guests without being intrusive. Rahim, the chef, whipped up one vegetarian speciality after another. The aviyal was to die for so were the... More

Located in Fort Cochin, you can walk to see the local market or the Chinese fishing nets.Easy location for a stroll or shopping. Such lovely gardens and pool area. The restaurant is wonderful, eat inside or out, and enjoy some evening entertainment too! Non intrusive but attentive staff, what a great place.

The Old Harbour Hotel, unique, tranquil and very comfortable. The word "comfortable" describes exactly how we felt, the staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for you. We had been travelling for 18 hours and our room wasn't ready, they opened a room and let us rest. The food was delicious and chef was marvellous. I would come back here... 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
