Visited The Rossita Wood Castle and lunched at their restaurant The Warehouse Café. Had a scrumptious grilled fish dish, selection of drinks and the ambience was calm and restful. Great place away from the hustle and bustle of Fort Kochi.
Was there for 1 night. the property gives a very rustic feel. It gives good traditional kerala house vibes. I got the 1st floor room. floor is wooden. it has old style switches. Located close to water front. Very helpful staff. Best part is they have a restaurant/cafe which serves amazing food. we just loved the food.. all freshly prepared. Appam with chicken curry, Fish pollichathu. puttu kadala was all very yum. few downsides: there is wear and tear in the property. my room didnt have a telephone, but they gave me a mobile number where i can call for anything. I was not able to switch on the AC, it seems the AC switch is at the reception and I had to tell them to check. Hot water is an issue ...Geyser is solar..so it takes a while for hot water. night time expect insects coming in. I had insects falling from the ceiling all over the bed. had to switch off the light to keep them from entering the room. I guess these are expected as its a very old setup. My stay experience I would say was average. But the Food is awesome.…
Mr Suvesh, the hotel manager was courteous and helped with an easy check in and a paid upgrade. If you are spending a day or two, I recommend the traditional wood rooms. Yes, this hotel is falling part but for periodic band-aid repairs. The doors are quirky, and the floorboard is squeaky - but hey how often can you stay in a century-old dutch house. Best part is the cleanliness with which the hotel maintains the place. Food is very average and expensive. Avoid the orange juice - the chef blends bitter seeds into the juice. The hotel not only arranged an auto at unearthly hours before dawn for us to reach the station but ensured we got a fair fare. The Vypeen ferry whih costs just 3 bucks is walkinh distance away. Overall a wonderful experience.
We were skeptical when we had booked our stay at Rossitta Wood Castle.. However, after staying there for 2 days, we left with a lot of positivity.. A 300 year old ancestral home, maintained really well with small neat rooms to accommodate any budget traveler.. The woodwork and green serenity inside the premise just makes u feel like home.. And the staff, Ms. Laiji, Mr. Bikender Singh (Bicki) n the housekeeping staff were like icing to the cake.. They made us (specially the kids) feel so so so comfortable throughout.. This amazing lil place is located on Rose Street, just beside our megastar Mammooka's "Big B" Bilal's Vasco House and Rasoi Cafe.. I would anyday recommend this place to all budget travelers..
Rossitta is centrally located and has an old world charm. My room was spacious, the staff was helpful and the property is neatly maintained. I loved the wooden flooring and the ambience of the place. Like most buildings in Fort Kochi, it has beautiful old pieces of furniture. The beach is only a short walk away from the property. There is also a small library and a cafe inside that serves breakfast, but the breakfast options are limited. We were served toast, omelette, fruits and coffee for breakfast and it was delectable. Had a great time, thanks to the helpful staff an. Would love to visit again in monsoon.
This is a heritage building in the heart of the Old Town and a minute walk from the Chinese fishing nets and waterfront. Lovely big room with a central verandah with tables and chairs to relax in. We had a deluxe room. Good staff. Near bars and restaurants. Good value.
This hotel is gorgeous -a beautiful heritage building, and the rooms are equally gorgeous and very comfortable. The location is perfect - really close to the shore and on a street with many great restaurants and cafes and a bike hire place. The staff are extremely helpful and are great at organising trips, taxis etc.
Stopped here due to being let down at other premises. What a wonderful find. Big bedroom bathroom with a shower over a bath tub, and a small dressing room leading on to a balcony. Toiletries provided, massive squashy bed. Breakfast served in the courtyard. Staff are so helpful and friendly. The mexican restaurant in the courtyard is fantastic. Great nachos and fajitas. Again very friendly staff. We were told this was mosquito city , so made sure we had plenty of spray. We would definitely recommend this hotel
This is a heritage property at the heart of Fort Kochi with walkable distance from most of the attractions. Yet this has a quaint environment. This homestay is 2 storeyed with huge rooms and bathrooms. Some has bathtub too. The wooden floored rooms are very cosy and comfortable with olden-styled beds and other antique furnitures. All the rooms have AC and modern facilities. The in-house Mexican speciality restaurant "Sutra" is an added bonanza. The food is really sumptuous with good portions. They also served fixed menu breakfast like continental or Kerala style. They also have a local touring arrangement as per your need. We chose boatride to the backwaters for half day which ended with traditional banana leaf meal. The property manager Mr. Suveesh is very cordial and helpful along with all the staff. In our case of early check-out they packed breakfast for us to carry. Fort Kochi is such a lovely place, one should not think twice to visit and stay here. …
Beautiful place, fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff, lovely court yard with award winning restaurant. Couldn’t be better! Comfortable rooms with things you usually miss at Indian hotels like hangers, nice soap and shampoo. Very clean. Beautiful wooden interiors and furniture. Good service too!
