A very charming place this is indeed. Very pretty frome the outside to look at. It has a nice little pool, with two or three sunbeds and tables. Staff are very good and polite. There are a few downsides to the sort and location of your room. We had the room called Goa, very big, but you open your bedroom door right into reception? we did ask if this room is noisy and was told no. Well that was rubbish. with wooden floors above the noise was horrendous.People only stay a day or two because of travelling and that is a big problem if you are in the main block (room Goa) we were woken at 4 in the morning with the sound of a radio and thump thump thump of every footstep as the people upstairs check out at 5am yes 5am. they then come down to reception and natter right outside our beroom door, again not good, We had this the two days we were there, so very little sleep indeed, also at this point our bathroom was poolside and people were having breakfast right out side our bathroom one metre away, we could hear every word that was said and they had to listen to us using the toilet a metre away with a open window with just a little insect screen covering it. This really needs addressing. all in all a very noisy room, and not thought out, what with putting people above you that have to get up at 4am and make a load of noise.

Room Tip: not above the kitchen or next to reception

The Tea Bungalow is a lovely small boutique hotel. It is well situated for the main sights in Kochi. The staff were very kind and helpful. The reception area doubles up as the lounge and restaurant which is slightly odd as it does feel very public when eating. Food is pleasant. There is no alcohol available here. We stayed on two occasions in the block in the front courtyard. The upstairs room did not have any hot water, and even downstairs you need to turn the tap on 10 minutes before your shower if you want it hot. The kettle did not work in the upstairs room. We were not bothered by traffic noise, contrary to some reviews, even though our room was adjacent to the street. The aircon was quite noisy, however. There is no wifi in the room but it works well in reception. There is a delightful secluded pool and courtyard area at the back which is lovely place to relax. This is also a nice place to sit for breakfast, although the breakfast choice was very limited and unimaginative. We spent 4 very happy nights here and would certainly return although some minor changes could make a huge difference to the overall experience. It is useful to know that there is a cashpoint just across the road from the hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid upstairs in the front courtyard block if you like hot water

We only stayed 2 nights but they were very comfortable. We had a large room on the 1st floor which was very quiet.
All the staff were most helpful and the food perfectly acceptable.
The pool area is rather small but very clean and well maintained.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a very well located comfortable base in Kochi.

A tastefully done boutique bungalow at a walking distance from almost every interesting places of fort Kochi. A very well managed 10 room property has a friendly staff and serves fine food. A heritage looking bungalow has spacious rooms and modern bathrooms. The owner Vivek is extremely friendly and cooperative.

Quite comfortable and luxurious stay at not a very high cost. Definitely recommended for a stay while in Kochi.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with family

The Tea Bungalow is a small hotel in a property built for tea merchants originally and forms part of Fort Cochin's trading history. Nice pool, average breakfasts. Did not dine there as no alcohol allowed in public dining area. Rooms in the main building are larger than those outside and ours was only 2 meters from a busy road. Avoid this one

Room Tip: check location and size of room. some are quite small and ours was extremely noisy from traffic
