This is a lovely, old hotel. The rooms are large with high ceilings and wooden floors. we were greeted with a delicious lime juice. For breakfast they were very accommodating and willing to make us anything we fancied, Western or Indian. Wifi is available in the common area, but it's a bit spotty. Wonderful and relatively quiet location near the seashore where you can walk along a promenade and buy fresh seafood and have it cooked right there. It's an easy Auto ride to see the sites in the old area called "Jewtown." Note that the Dutch museum is closed on Fridays.
This was a great place for a weekend stay in Fort Kochi area. It is located in the middle of shops and restaurants. The room is very clean and the beds are comfortable. AC and fans in all rooms worked so well! Very accommodating staff. Loved our stay here.
I would suggest everyone who is traveling to Cochin must have beer in this place and then have food in one of those Street side open restaurants in fort Kochi. This place is nice in the evening. The ambience is awesome. I haven't had food but had only beer since I wanted to save my stomach for the seafood cooked in those fast food like restaurants. It's a lovely place!
I have stopped in the hotel for one night and I was amazed by the level of service. We were waiting for hours (literally) to get some tea in our room. Finally we got something different. The hotel itself is a very strange place because there are tons of people who are trying to open your room door. I spend an hour negotiating an average widow in my room, normally there is a wifi in public places but not in a room. There is a very nice guy Wiki - hotel director who is the only one in the hotel who you can rely on. Thanks Wiki!
Although my family has a lot of ties to Cochin city, this was the first time in more than a few years that we decided to go back and check out the fort cochin scene. My family has personally known the Koder family which used to occupy the red bricked mansion. Koder and his sister (of Jewish ancestry) moved to mattancherry-fort cochin during the holocaust (if am not wrong) and the family established itself as a successful business house with ties to other local traders and merchants. My aunt suggested we go and check the place just to rekindle memories. The staff at the front desk were extremely courteous and showed us the suites since we were window shopping for a planned event in march 2017. The property has been impressively maintained and still has the very home kinda feel to it. We did get a beer afterwards at the lounge/ garden area. I was told there are 6 suites available and the one we saw was pretty large and impressive. We were assured that some of the original decor left by Koder 'saayip' was left intact in the upper floor too. I suggest anyone who visits Fort Cochin to go check this gem out. This mansion is part of the Jewish history of Cochin city which houses the oldest synagogue outside Israel. So keep it on your list.
