We loved this hotel. The location is peaceful but an easy walk to most of the sights of Fort Cochi. The rooms are tasteful, huge and spotlessly clean, and bed was the most comfortable we had in our whole trip. The bathroom was unique with gorgeous natural toiletries in terracotta pots - a lovely touch. Breakfast was very nice with good coffee and homemade bread. All the staff were friendly, helpful and courteous.
Our only negative was that the welcome when we arrived very early (5am) left a lot to be desired. We fully expected that we wouldn't be able to check in, but we weren't offered a seat or drink, or any alternative other than heading out into Fort Kochi to wander after having travelled for nearly 24hrs. We had informed them of our expected arrival time, but they seemed unprepared. Thankfully when we reappeared at 9am the welcome was far more warm, and a room was ready for us.
