There is a naval theme running throughout which is stylish. The bedrooms and bathrooms were first class. The restaurant is towards novelle cuisine. The pool is small but adequate. We lay in the water and watched red kites and bee-catchers.

My wife and I stayed at the Eighth Bastion for two nights. We had a lovely room overlooking the courtyard and swimming pool area. The staff are all polite and efficient. We had dinner the first night which was tasty, and breakfast was buffet style with a choice of eggs to order. The swimming pool was very clean although a...

I loved everything about this hotel. The design is a skillful contemporary nod to Fort Cochin's Dutch heritage with elegant touches of modern India. Small delights for the eye are scattered throughout including the tiny ceramic cream pots in the bathroom, the opulently tiled bathtub, and the foyer's blue and white porcelain tiles. The breakfast is a delicious spread of...

A fantastic small hotel, only recently refurbished with contemporary designed and furnished rooms and common areas. A really good restaurant and in an ideal location, just a 10 minute walk along the beach promenade into old Dutch colonial centre. One of the top 3 or 4 places to stay in Cochin.

I stayed twice at the Eighth Bastion. Nice welcoming and helpful team. Quiet area. Beautiful building. Nice swimming pool. Great breakfast and restaurant. Don't hesitate to use their soaps, really nice fragrance and soft to the skin (you always need to request extra, they are a bit stingy).

I don't think the pictures of this hotel really do it justice - hence the title of the review. We've stayed in Cochin 3 times now and always chosen old colonial hotels but none were available this year so we reluctantly agreed to go to this hotel and what a pleasant surprise. We stayed three nights and arrived in the...
