We were staying around the corner in a very nice but bland hotel. we saw this place through the narrow doorway into it's courtyard. We then moved hotel to stay there. we went away to the backwaters but then came back again. The large Portuguese style house was owned by a Jewish family. Indeed there is a whole area in Fort Cochin called 'Jewtown'. The house is very characterful and has historical charm. The staff are very friendly. Rooms are lovely and like time travel. The free breakfast was fine. We just enjoyed hanging out in the peaceful inner courtyard and old rooms. A beautiful and relaxing place in the middle of the popular part of Fort Cochin. Fort cochin itself is amazing and lovely. Mina the travel agent who works from the entrance area is awesome.

The located is located in Fort Kochi just near to the Chinese Fishing Nets. The room size is good but it is a small budget hotel. Their restaurant is managed by someone else as it is outsourced. The building requires renovation.

Dear Sheesharam, Thank you for your feedback. When you book a Budget room, described as the small standard room, then it will be smaller. If you had booked a Superior or Deluxe or Suite Room, then it will be accordingly sized. For the amount paid for the budget room, it is commensurate. The building is renovated once a year while other on going maintenance is done as is required. We wait for the North East Monsoon to get over before the whole place is repainted. Otherwise, it will be wasted. The restaurant is a very reputable company in Cochin with about 8 branches all over. And their food is rated very well, if you check their profile. And their prices are very reasonable. Nevertheless, the location of the hotel is such that you have a varied choice of restaurants to go to. Sincerely, Manager

Blue Sea Lemonade (The lemonade was perfectly made with the blue lime syrup, soda, ice crushers and mint leaves. The drink to cool out body. The ambiance was stylish with old texture of chairs and courtyards and decos. The service was quite okay. Just loved the place to relax and talk our chitchats and sit for the whole day.) . .

The hotel is very centrally located in Fort Cochin. It is within walking distance of the Chinese fishing nets, the church and the Kathakali show. We had a huge room with antique furniture and the whole building had a ancient feel about it. The staff were helpful but we often had to wait for someone to turn up. The breakfast was slow coming but quite nice. Overall quite a nice stay.
