The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and included hot water! Bed-sheets were spotless and there was ample space to hang clothes in the room.
Stayed at this hotel for a 3 days longer than I had planned since it was nice, clean and relaxing. Only a 10-15 minute walk to the main fort area where all the restaurants are located. Staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: Select one of the newer upstairs rooms that has a private balcony where breakfast is served!

Good value accomodation. 5 - 10 minutes walk from the centre of Fort Cochi. The rooms are very clean and reasonably priced (from Rs 300 in off season). Free WIFI in the lobby. Breakfast is served on an outside verandah. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. Even the watchman has a smile everyday if you come back at night. Recomended.

I stayed at the Vintage Inn for 7 nights which is possibly a little longer than the average visitor to Kochi. The location was OK for the attractions of Kochi, and the local shops. The room was large, I had a double to myself, and most important it was clean. There was a ceiling fan and an air conditioner in the room and a TV. Free access to the computer in the lounge was a bonus and the manager Antony and his staff were most helpful in arranging taxis. Breakfast on the alfresco balcony was very pleasant.

The staff is incredibly nice and greeted us at 2am with cold bottled water and smiles. The rooms are very basic but spacious. The bathrooms are clean. Room service was prompt and fairly tasty. The location was perfect for a ten minute walk to Princess Street. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The room was a little more basic than expected considering the good reviews this place gets here and in the guide books. But it was clean, fairly big and the service is very friendly. An extra plus for the guest computer in the lounge! Instead of a mosquito net above the bed, there were nets in the windows which is a good solution. Bathroom was tiny so gets completely wet when you shower. We had a nice breakfast (not included) early in the morning before we left. We ordered it the night before and it was delivered at the exact time and served in the garden (our choice).

I was in India for 6 months, and Vintage Inn was one of my two or three favorite accommodations among many. I recall a travel book saying the location isn't convenient, but I found it to be perfect. If I wanted to use wifi or get something western like a candy bar - I'd go up to Princess Street. Otherwise the local scene to the south and east was much more interesting to me. From Vintage you could get into a lot of different neighborhoods quickly. Also, just down the street is the Kerala Kathakali Centre, where I saw the best live traditional music during my time in India. A farther walk was the excellent and affordable Sri Krishna Cafe, an institution for traditional Keralan food.

As others have commented, the rooms are very clean and secure. The owners are helpful and all the staff is very friendly. I met some great guests here as well while having breakfast on the upper terrace. The comfort of this Inn encouraged me to stay much longer in Cochin than I expected, and without question I would stay here again if I'm back in town.

Room Tip: I stayed in two rooms, and one had glow in the dark stars!!!!
