Staff were all very helpful. Food was great whether it was Indian or European style. Breakfast a little limited but as the hotel only has 14 rooms you wouldn’t expect a big spread. Great location to get to most places with a short walk or tuk tuk ride. Interesting places to go especially if you have an interest in the history and background to the area.

A beautiful old restored bungalow in a great location for the busy, tourist part of Fort Kochi, a lot of character and charm with enormous, comfortable rooms—bigger than my first studio apartment ! Friendly helpful staff. Not as luxe as some of the nearby hotels but we liked the vibe better.

The place was quite run down, had the potential to be beautiful but needed work. They don’t serve alcohol, and they don’t provide conditioner or tissues, I asked for tissues and was given a pile of serviettes from the restaurant and a toilet roll. The staff on the whole were very nice and friendly

We visited this hotel and stayed for 3 nights. It is a lovely old building in a quiet and pretty part of the old town in Kochi. However the hotel itself is quite run down and appears to have had little maintenance for a long time. It is badly in need of painting and renovation. The breakfast selection was the most limited of any hotels we stayed at in India.

Lovely heritage hotel in a quiet location but close to the major attractions of Fort Kochi. We had a very large bedroom which was spotlessly clean and still had loads of space after adding a third bed for our child. Room came with a small separate sitting room with a sofa & fridge plus an outdoor balcony seating area overlooking the swimming pool. We ate four times in the restaurant where the food was good, safe to eat and the menu offered both Indian and western food. A meal for three with side dishes, a huge chocolate milkshake and two large bottles of water cost us around £15 in total. Waiters and reception staff were all friendly and helpful. Chefs are quite slow to cook your meals and your group tend to each receive their meals at different times, but all the food is freshly cooked to order.

It was a very bad idea that I've purchased their one year membership because out of 6 properties I've stayed during this year 2 of them treated us as free stayers and this staff at dutch bungalow being the worst.. for breakfast my children went first to the restaurant and when I went to the restaurant after an hour I saw my children still waiting for food.. when asked the manager,he gave me an absolute unprofessional reply that there's only one more guest staying at the hotel they went to the restaurant first so we have to wait till they finish..the reason is they have only one chef and he's busy with the other guest.. then I asked him then y did they take our booking and his rude reply was that I must ask the one who took the booking..and he's helpless.... Abad has some good properties but they must hire some polite staff to cater and for the maintenance of the property

Decided to go to Dutch Bungalow, as it was previously owned by my ancestor Rao Sahib Mangat Kurien Varughese. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Wonderful staff. Took us around the place. Elegant rooms with teakwood panelling.

Unobtrusive, understated and an absolute gem. Booked a weekend stay at the Abad Dutch Bungalow property as a birthday treat & can't thank myself enough for choosing this property:) Beautiful hotel, the interiors are absolutely lovely- this is a heritage property and the care taken to maintain this property is obvious in how well maintained and clean it is, not to mention gorgeous interiors full of antique teakwood furniture; it really strikes the right balance between old world style and contemporary customer service. Jomy who managed the property was very considerate about attending to every query and request i had, and as a woman traveling alone, it meant a lot to have the staff take so much care of me as a customer. A big thank you to Jomy, and all the kitchen staff who were attentive and really lovely. Definitely my new favourite hotel in Fort Kochi for future trips, please don't miss this gem. And the swimming pool inside the property is just an added bonus.
