The warm welcome at reception is a perfect start to a perfect stay. While the room was relatively simple it was spacious and clean. We were on a side street so the occasional motorbike would pass. If you are sensitive to noise ask for another room or wear earplugs. I found it to. E a nice authentic addition to the...

This was out first port of call on a 3 week trip to Kerala during the last week of October. Staff and service is incredible and it was one of our favourite hotels during the entire trip. Met the owners father who was visiting at that time and he was very hospitable and welcoming lovely chatting to him as well.

This is a beautiful property with around 13 rooms only. We spent Christmas here and they organised a lovely dinner in the courtyard amongst the trees. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The internet is available but not very fast! But the hotel is right in the centre of Fort Kochi and you can walk around the waterfront...

The Old Harbour Hotel is in the perfect location in Fort Kochi. The water and Chinese fishing nets are two short blocks away. The park in front of the hotel is buzzing with locals doing everything from exercising to gossiping. The main shopping area begins just one half block from the hotel. Simply put, it's all there outside your doorstep....

Finally it came true on this weekend, Dec 9th. We stayed for two nights. The romm was awesome, hospitality and food was great,...

Thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay here. Due to flight delays, we didn't arrive until past midnight. We did have to knock on the door to be let in but someone came fairly quickly and a light supper had been prepared for us - a lovely gesture. Our room was large - although overlooking a small side street so not as...

Sometimes special is used to frequently, but not in this case, from being picked up from the airport in a fifty year old Morris Oxford and arriving at this 300 year old building lovingly restored to its rightful glory, to the warmth of the welcome, the food and the quiet professionalism of all those involved....everything was special! we stopped for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more   less
