Bharat Hotel, usually known as BTH (formerly Bharat Tourist Home), is a well-known landmark in Kochi and is popular with budget tourists. The chief attraction is the great location--700 metres from the boat jetty and right in the heart of the city, yet very quiet.
The food is terrific in the restaurant and the coffee shop. Hygiene has improved considerably over the years. The staff are efficient, although I would like to see them smile once in a while. Some of the new waiters in the restaurant need training. They stand right near your table at one place, looking out through the window at the road. Very annoying. I've stayed in this hotel several times in the past ten years.More
