“Mind Blowing....”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

I had a wonderful time at the Koder House, The place has got its own tradition and class. The Location is too beautiful and so close to the beach and garden that you could hear the waves every now and then.. The rooms are huge and top class, the wooden interiors has its own charm. The toilet is neat and tidy. Room Service is exceptional.

Room Tip: Opt for the second floor and third floor rooms

We stayed here for a couple of nights just before Christmas. It's a heritage building (no lift, so avoid the top floor if stairs are a problem) and our rooms were suites with lots of space and character, comprising a large bedroom, a bathroom with bath and separate shower, and a sort of dressing room with minibar, wardrobes and lots of luggage space. The rooms are on different levels ie steps up to the bathroom, at least on the top floor, as we didn't see them all. Great restaurant with alcohol available (not so easy to find in Kochin), overlooking the small park area and very close to the beach, market and shops. The beach would benefit from a clean-up but the Chinese fishing nets around the corner are worth seeing in action (08.00 is a good time).

Room Tip: The rooms on the left hand side of the building as you stand and look at it from the front can be no...

Had a wonderful stay of two weeks @ Koder House. Being a keralite me and my small family thoroughly enjoid their Menorah restaurant. It was really great to have their special kerala fish curry. It was as good as my mother's traditional fish curry of Kerala. i would liek to thank the Chef for that special treat. I am looking forward to coming back to Koder house again in mid 2012.

We stayed at the sister hotel, Victory Dawn which was fantastic. However, the mandatory gala dinner at Koder House on Christmas Eve was a big disappointment. They over promised and under delivered. The service was appalling, although there frequently seemed to be plenty of staff and managers hanging around. It also wasn't clear what menu we were ordering from. The food, when it did eventually arrive, was perfectly nice.

This could be a stunning restaurant but suffers from lack of management.

We stayed here for 2 nights upon arriving in India for the first time and we loved it! The room was enormous and the staff was very friendly. The location was good, close to the old fort and to the beach to see the Chinese fishing nets. The restaurant was excellent too - I had a curry that made my eyes water and my nose run!!!

I recently visited Kerala in December. I stayed in Koder House. It is a true Heritage category hotel. It is a three storey heritage hotel opposite the beach at Fort Kochi. It belongs to the earlier Cochin Jewish family (built in 1988). It is around 35-40 Km away from the Kochi Airport. I really enjoyed staying there. The accommodation was so good with true Indian heritage style. The bedrooms are huge with beautiful Indian wooden furniture and the bathrooms are so clean and attractive. The staffs were also very helpful and efficient. Kodar House has a unique history and is one of the best hotels in Fort Cochin. We had a breakfast with various variety of food especially Malabar fish/chicken. I must say that Kerala Malabar fish was so good. The stay was unforgettable. If anyone gets a chance to visit Kerala, must stay there and take an experience of true Indian Heritage.
