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.
We made last minute accommodation switch to the Koder House due to some booking issues. We were so happy with the upgrade . The location is great. Walking distance to many shops and sites. The staff was friendly and helpful. The place is beautiful. We stayed with 2 other families. The twin beds were small but they happily accommodated us with an extra bed for the kids.
Koder house is an old hotel which I believe should be atleast a century old. Ms Praveena who owns this building runs it as a hotel. We went to have dinner and we had sea food. The food and service was very good.
The staff at the Koder House was the sweetest we have ever encountered. No request was too big or too small for them to try to accomplish. Every time we walked in the door we were happily greeted as if by family. The property is old- over 200 years old- so expect some quirks, but our bathroom was totally modern and the room was huge. The property is conveniently located across from a park and just down the street from the wharf and Chinese fishing nets. When we left for our next destination, some of the staff came out to wish us a safe journey and wave good-bye to us! What a nice memory to have.
