Forte Kochi is a beautiful period boutique hotel in the heart of the area. The location is ideal, food is fantastic with a wide variety of options for all tastes. Not to mention the pool is so refreshing after a hot day of exploring. The rooms are comfortable with some good options for families with an extra bed. Highly recommend staying here

Hotel's Favourite
We had a very comfortable stay at Forte Kochi for about a week. The included breakfast was extensive and delicious with several made-to-order dishes like dosas and waffles. The pool was very refreshing in the hot sun, and the complimentary afternoon tea and snack was a nice treat. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is very beautiful and photo friendly! The staff were incredibly courteous and efficient. In particular, we really appreciated then packing a delicious breakfast for us on our last day when we had an early flight home. We highly recommend Forte Kochi for a beautiful and relaxing stay.

Excellent tour of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry with Biju. He is an excellent guide with a relaxed style but very knowledgable. He answered all our questions and gave us a real insight into the history of Fort Kochi and Kerala. We thoroughly enjoyed the four hours we spent with him.

The hotel itself was good, but overpriced and missing warmth. There was a ton of outside commotion in the room; however, a little white noise on phone made it okay to sleep. Lots of packaged group tour guests so the hotel staff seemed more focussed on a factory customer service, without any intention of delighting the customer and doing the bare minimum. Lack of personalized hospitality was definitely due to there being no repeat value for the hotel as the tour guides would keep bringing rich new guests ;) Breakfast was okay, a bit slow. The filtered water in the room smelled.

We had a lovely two day stay on our trip through Kerala - this is a great place to rest and relax after discovering the sites of the surrounding area. The room was very comfortable and the courtyard with pool was delightful . We had dinner here both nights which was really very good. I would definitely recommend this lovely hotel

Good location in the heart of the historic district. Unique grounds. Some initial service issues at the hotel with restaurant staff and with a large tour group that took over the restaurant. But staff seeing our unhappiness bent over backwards to make our stay better. Rooms are ok---not a lot of shelf space in the bathroom.
