I was in Cochin and due to some problem I have to change my hotel, I ask my driver that if he can suggest some hotel to me so he take me to this hotel. The price was little bit high as I was looking for some budget class hotel and certainly this is not a budget hotel. Anyways it...

We started our stay at the hotel with some misunderstanding about which room had been booked, but that turned out to be due to our travel agency and not due to the hotel. The hotel managed and solved this very satisfactorily, so we ended up having a great stay in this beautiful hotel even though it was in a different...

India is without doubt a unique experience. It takes some adjusting to for most European travelers and there is no doubt that the Old Harbour Hotel helps with the adjustment. Behind the walls lies an oasis of tranquility, a very good restaurant, a lovely garden and a superb swimming pool. The bedrooms are adequate and the beds uncomfortably low and...

My recent stay at the Old Harbour Hotel was like heaven. My friend and I had been traveling all over India, in many homes, hotels and different situations. It was like arriving to an oasis. It is peaceful, quiet, done in impeccable taste and style. At night, upon returning to our room, there were jasmine flowers on our bed with...

An absolute gem of a place and a wonderful finish to an extended tour of India. The Old Harbour has managed the perfect blend of small-scale intimacy with the kind of attentive yet never intrusive service normally only seen in top-end luxury mega hotels. Perfectly placed by the Chinese fishing nets just a step outside the front door, but insulated...

My husband and I spent last weekend in Fort Cochin and stayed at the Old Harbour Hotel--- we LOVED our experience. The location is perfect: it is a couple of minutes walk from the fishing nets and Fort Cochin in itself is charming with small streets and shops. It is walking (a slightly long walk) from the synagogue and palace....

The positive reviews are correct. This is a wonderful hotel. The staff are helpful and caring. The hotel is beautiful-a wonderful conversion/renovation. The rooms are well appointed. Many of the ground floor rooms look onto a courtyard, so do keep this in mind. If you can, book one of the suites on the second floor. They are truly spectacular, and...

The Old Harbour Hotel in Cochin, Kerala, is a wonderful place, home away from home, to spend a couple of days. You sleep like a baby in wonderful surroundings (we had the Palace Suite). Pool is surrounded by lovely tropical plants and flowers. Restaurant is excellent and Chef's fresh fruit juices and especially his chocolate ice cream were fantastic! Service...

We stayed here for 1 night at the start of our tour of Kerala. The hotel is gorgeous, set in an old colonial building. The rooms are simply but beautifully decorated and have high ceilings and large windows. We ate in the restaurant at a gerden table and the food was delicious, especially the fish and prawns. The next morning...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more   less
