On arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly.The rooms are about average with the electric sockets looking somewhat dangerous. In our room the plaster was flaking off the walls by the bed which was not pleasant to look at. The chef is really friendly the food is good. The hotel is only a short walk to the market and Chinese fishing nets.One of the highlights was a visit to the laundry.

Dear John, Thank you for y our feedback. We are happy that the staff looked after you well. Since we have limestone walls, they have to be maintained yearly. And now with the off season coming in, the renovation will start. We have taken into consideration all your points. Best, Manager

Very Conveniently located near the waterfront with the Chinese Fishing nets. The rooms are clean and basic - ideal if you are out most of the time and need the room only for rest and freshening up. Being a restoration of an old building, there are no lifts. The food is good and the service is great. Shops and other restaurants nearby.

The Old Courtyard Hotel is a nice old house in the Main Shopping Street of Old Chocin. Nice courtyard, big rooms with antique furnitures. But very noisy and badly soundproofed. You can hear every little noise from the other rooms. There is no breakfast and very poor service from a not very competend staff. It is more like a Youth Hostel and therefore too expensive.

I would call this hotel average at best. It was disappointing, though it has the basic charm that could make it much better than average if managed properly. Our room was large and opened to a balcony overlooking the courtyard. But, we couldn't use the wardrobe to store our clothes because it was quite dusty. Our bathroom tile had mildew/mold on the grout and the faucet in the sink was rusty. We had to unplug a lamp to find a place to charge a phone, and the wi-fi was spotty at best. If you have physical challenges, be aware that the rooms are accessible only with one or two long, steep staircases. On the bright side, the air conditioning worked very well.

Dear Dave, Thank you for your feedback. We will definitely look into the points you have brought up. It is indeed disconcerting that previous reviews have also covered your points but positively, It was perhaps a wrong choice of hotel for you as it did not meet your expectations. Sincerely, Manager

During our tour of India we stayed at 9 different hotels. 8 were wonderful. The Old Courtyard should not have been on the itinerary. A local person should have checked it out in person rather than relying on the charming pictures and older reviews. The staff was not particularly helpful – on the first day at breakfast I waited an hour for coffee that never came. The rooms were in poor condition with jerry-rigged wiring and stained curtains. One of our rooms had a mold in the bathroom, and the closets in all were dusty and dirty. The staff, particularly the first day was not ready to serve us. A charming old historic building is fine if it is in good condition. This was not. Given the quality of every other place we stayed, this was a big disappointment. I cannot

Dear Floyd, Thank you for your feedback. We have noted your interaction with the staff. Unfortunately, we are not a 5 star hotel and perhaps your stay in other hotels were of that category. Indeed it is a quaint place not suited to everyone who require modern and up to date facilities. You were right that perhaps your agent should have done more research on your requirements. It is obvious that this was not your cup of tea. Sincerely, Manager
