My wife & i decided to spend a week or so in India to celebrate our 40th. wedding anniversary,
we decided not to travel around so we chose Fort Cochin to chill out...Koder House is an amazing boutique/heritage hotel full of history huge rooms with great furniture,balconies & the biggest most comfortable beds.(all the rooms have a/c mini bar)
When i booked direct with the hotel i mentioned that we would be celebrating our anniversary,on that evening the restuarant manager had arranged a suprise cake,balloons,red roses on the table & even a scroll congratulating us!!
After our meal (good food) we returned to our room to find our bed covered in rose petals in a heart shape & garlands of jasmine...truly wonderfull.great hotel, staff are so genuine polite & helpfull we loved it....thank you Koder House x

We had one night in the Koder House Junior Suite at the end of September. The house is well located, within easy reach of the beach and Chinese Fishing Nets. The suite was spacious and extremely comfortable, with A/C and ceiling fans. The bed was also a real treat - large with a comfortable mattress.
The staff were friendly and the food we ate at the restaurant was delicious.

My boyfriend and I were in India for 2 weeks staying in 7 different hotels as we moved around and this was easily our favourite.

The thing about Fort Kochi is that there isn't many mid range hotels, plenty of homestays and guest houses along with budget options as there's plenty of back packers.

Just when we thought we would have to fork out for a top end hotel, we stumbled across the Koder House hotel. As well as a fascinating historical background the hotel is beautiful inside and out. It's conveniently located close to the ferry port and next to Princess Street.

Each room or rather suite is individually styled and small details are considered. The bathrooms are a particluar pull with a jacuzzi bath, and seperate shower. There is also a dressing area, mini bar and gorgeous toiletries (rather than the rubbish stuff hotels try to get away with providing).

Service is very good indeed and here's a free business centre as well as wifi.

Top Tip: call the hotel directly as the rates on online booking portals are much higher than what we paid when we went directly.

We stayed for one night during August. The hotel is a huge heritage building with a really interesting history which has begun to look tired. It needs a lick of paint and desperately needs to sort out the 'pool' which is murky and disgusting in the back yard. The rooms are fabulous - huge with comfy beds and a real heritage feel. The bathroom is large with a shower and bath, although again it does need some TLC. The staff were friendly ( thry brought us welcome drinks)and the breakfast was fine, although not a patch on the old harbour next door! It was probably quite expensive for what it is, even though we got a good rate as it was low season. the business centre is not actually a business centre, although we were able to use the Internet and print which was a bonus. The hotel CCTV is on the desk so it feels like you are borrowing the managers office.

We arrived as wet as drowned rats from a monsoon downpour but got a friendly reception when we asked for a table for two. The waiter suggested we might like to sit with a view of rain falling into the courtyard.
Our Malabar and Kerala fish curries were delicious and came with poppadoms, rice and paratha. We had hoped for a beer (this is a rare thing in Kerala) but were told the first Sunday in the month is dry. We enjoyed our lime sodas nevertheless!
We also enjoyed reading about the history of the Koder House in the menu and in labels to photos on the walls.
The service was outstanding. A treat for a couple of scruffy, damp backpackers.

We had the pleasure of staying in a small room at Koder House and by any measure it was huge. The upstairs suits are amazing. The refurbishment of this heritage building has been carefully done in order to preserve the flavour of the era. Opposite the park that leads to the Chinese fishing nets, well located in the Fort, Koder House offers easy walks to other restaurants, shops and markets. Their own restaurant does wonderful Kerala and South Indian cuisine, and super wonderful breakfasts that are included in the rate. Only disappointment is the pool. But you stay there for the building, the service and the food.

Room Tip: We had the downstairs room because I have problem with stairs. There are a few stairs from the foye...

This hotel is in a great location and walking distance to some great restaurants.
Our room was massive great comfortable beds and bathroom was clean and tidy a little over priced but its an experience staying at this hotel. I think they have 7 rooms in total so the service is great from all staff. The pool is very small just a dipping pool.
