Modern and classy hotel with plenty to offer. Location is ideal to visit the boutique shops nearby, and the Chinese fishing nets by the harbour. Staff are very helpful and friendly, breakfast was just about perfect. A great option for anyone looking for a bit of calmness in what can be a busy place.

We used Fort Kochi as a bouncing board to explore Kerala and were a bit disappointed. The tourist attractions are a bit tired and depressing: the once beautiful Hindu murals of the Dutch Palace have been so mismanaged they’ve all but disappeared, the famous Chinese fishing nets are broken and run down, the spice market doesn’t operate any more, the...

A delightful hotel; simple, but stylish. Well located, a short walk from the sea, where local fish is sold. Also not far from cafes and shops, an ideal situation. The room, in particular the bathroom, was very good with every little “extra” one might need. The food was tasty and interesting. The staff were friendly and always ready to help...

A very nice hotel in a quiet place and not far from the main center of Fort Kochi. If you like boutique hotel with rooms (only 19 there) you really should consider to get there. Just not big fan of the restaurant but you can easily find places around (buy fishes and seafood next to the Chinese nest and they...

We visited this hotel for a short 24 hours. It is very modernly designed. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Chef is excellent! Best food we eat in this 2 weeks tour to south India. we asked for recipe for almost everything we tasted. Nice pool to cool off between tours to the very near attractions.

I can highly recommend this Hotel in Fort Kochi. Fantastic staff who instantly make you feel at home, the rooms are good sized and decorated beautifully. Make sure you try the 8 course degustation meal by Chef Matthew. Best seafood chowder I ever tasted, and overall 10 out of 10 for every single meal !
