My travelling companion and I spent five nights here, and really enjoyed our stay. We appreciated the high, beamed ceilings, the beautiful wooden doors, and the charm of the porch just outside the rooms where breakfast is served. The building and plantings are lovely, everything is clean and well maintained, the beds are comfortable with nice pillows, and the large bathroom made it an ideal space to share. I would definitely say that it is one of the most tastefully decorated places I have stayed in India, with a real sense of local authenticity. The young staff are eager to please, and go out of their way to be helpful. There are only four guest rooms, and the house is located on a quiet street, so you really feel like you are in your own delightful home. I hated to leave!

Room Tip: The corner room, with a wrap around veranda, is the largest, but the other two on the main floor are...

This is a quiet home stay with staff who go the extra mile.Nothing was too much trouble, and they were extremely helpful and friendly.
My room which was upstairs, was a little cramped and dark, but clean and comfortable otherwise, with A/C. I believe the downstairs rooms are more spacious. There was a nice little area with a table and chairs outside my room where the beautifully cooked breakfasts were served.
As there are not many rooms, its is quite private and peaceful. It is located close to the Bishop's House, a 10 minute walk from the central tourist area.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms are bigger

We found Cochin Heritage by chance as we were strolling around the village looking for a nice place to stay. The building is a typical Keralan house with lovely woodwork that has been nicely restored. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with air con and mosquito nets in all windows and nice wooden furniture. The are is nice and quiet, just a stroll away from the main streets but away from the hustle and buzzle of the most touristy areas.
Breakfast is good, we stayed for four nights and got to taste different things each morning, including a typical keralan breakfast on our last day.
The staff are really nice , Albin and his brother made our stay a pleasure, they are caring and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Fort Cochin. Excellent value for money.

There was a air about this hotel which said that you are in Kerala. Right from entering the hotel to the lobby to the rooms. The food, well.. everything smelt of coconut. However, it tasted good. The location was good. Centraslly located yet everything was quiet.

When we checked in to the Cochin Heritage we had already stayed in two other homestays in Kochi-Ernakulam. We were looking for a new place that was within easy striking distance of the sights and old-school colonial ambience of Fort Kochi, yet still airy and secluded and above all, beautiful. Lucky for us the helpful folks at Delite—which was booked up—steered us towards this gem. The Cochin Heritage is a meticulously restored Kerala home that has been in the proprietor Ajit’s house for generations: hand carved wood furnishings throughout, polished red floors and the most perfect wraparound porch overlooking the garden. The bathrooms, linens and towels are impeccably clean and comfortable. The breakfasts, served with REAL pressed coffee at the porch under fans, are fresh n’ tasty. The Heritage somehow feels luxurious and simple at the same time. But the real reason to stay is the wonderful folks that make this a “true homestay”. Ajit is lovely and thoughtful and did everything to make our stay with two small children easy as can be. Albin and Joby, two brothers who work at the homestay, are always on hand with a smile and a cold drink. Suffice it to say we wish that everyone we met on our travels was this smart, nice & great. We will continue to travel back to wonderful Kochi and enjoy the affordable comforts of Cochin Heritage Homestay.

We stayed at this Hotel for two days and enjoyed it a lot. It is located central but quiet in Cochin Fort. The rooms are nice, although they appeared to be a bit dark. The service was great, they helped us with laundry and showed us a good restaurant (Oceano restaurant, see other review), we would not have discovered without them. The breakfast was good. For Cochin this might be a good recommendation.
