We stayed here for 2 nights and used it as a base to explore Kochi. Hotel staff spoke fantastic English and couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and mosquito free with great shower pressure. There is no safe in the room and when I asked concierge, they mentioned the room was safe. He turned out to be...

It is nice laid back hotel in Fort Kochi area within walking distance of Princess Street. They seem to have adopted environment friendly mantra and even the soap, shampoo, toothpaste etc kept in the rooms were all herbal. No TVs in rooms. The staff was nice but the breakfast option were really really limited.

We stayed here on our first night in India and were pleasantly surprised by the homely Portuguese style rooms with the little wicker chairs on the shared balcony. It's in a great location close to the famous Chinese fishing nets. The hotel restaurant is lovely, looking out onto the fort and with good food - it offers great views and...

I've just stayed here as part of a package trip, this was our first hotel - we had a warm welcome at reception and shown to our room on the ground floor. The rooms are pretty basic, but very clean and the air conditioning is a blessing! My favourite bit is the central area where all the trees are hung...

There is no doubt that the location of this hotel is superb, however the room, whilst being clean, was very utilitarian and lacking in comfort. The bedding was grey & the towels were well past their use by date. Breakfast was adequate, but for a hotel that professes to be famous for its food, we were sorely disappointed. Clearly there...

We visited Fort House a couple of weeks ago. Overall, this hotel is pretty decent and can be a good experience if you are not too fuzzy. Positives: Location, cleanliness but you will find bugs that are not related to the place being clean, wonderful food from the restaurant, view from jet, room local decorations, reception, staff at restaurant were...

We stayed here as a family of four for two nights. This property has the WOW factor .. The colonial style rooms were very large, clean, comfy beds and excellent en suite facilities. The staff were very friendly and worked hard. Breakfast was excellent especially the Indian choice. The location was great. We would thoroughly recommend this place.

Small restaurant next to the water where you can enjoy the view and the food, which is good, the only drawback is they don't serve beer although the ones next to it do. Wish they served cold coconut water atleast. The coconut ice cream is good. Worth visiting. Also has a Ayurveda resort with rooms where you can stay

Fort House is easily found and centrally located in Fort Kochi and therefore easy to find. They are located within 2 km of local attractions in the area including the ferry should you need to go elsewhere. The property is spot on the harbour and every bit of the property has a nice authentic and rustic touch, including the walkways,...
