Friends had recommended this charming, old-style but well-equipped hotel to us, and they weren't wrong. We arrived very tired from the airport to find there really is a lovely courtyard where you can enjoy a very good breakfast, the rooms are large, clean and have a/c, the staff are friendly and helpful and it's close to lots of restaurants, the...

I had a firm booking. They asked for an advance and then did not respond to my query. Evidently they wanted to charge more. Unprofessional

Really kind and thoughtful staff here at this hotel. Stayed for three nights with my young family. Had room no.1 which was a great size. The bed was big and comfortable. It has mozzie nets which could do with a bit of work. It's a little tired and could do with a lick of paint but that is outweighed by... More

We stayed at the Old Courtyard for one night. The staff were very friendly and the room was sizeable, but the whole place was very run-down. The walls need a paint job and the linen and towels need replacing. The beds were comfortable and the place really does have an "old-world" charm. It is in Princess street right by some... More

Arrived early and staff couldn't be more helpful. Charming little rooms up the spiral staircase. Foods okay. We needed a taxi from here down to Kovallam and asked the owner to get us a price. She came back with 9,500 rupees. We met a lovely couple of ladies from England and they gave us a card for the taxi driver... More

A peaceful restaurant to have a meal away from the busyness of this area. We tried the Kerala fish curry and the seafood pasta. Both dishes were flavourful. The service was good, but this month is off-season so I am not sure if it will be the same with a full house.

In our recent trip to India we visited the Meenachil Restaurant in the Old Courtyard hotel twice (and we were only in Cochin two nights). We had the vegetarian dishes and they were really tasty. In fact, they were amongst the best food we had during our 5 week trip to India. They were exceptional value with most of the... More

The restaurant is within the Old Courtyard Hotel on Princess St Fort Cochin. The food was some of the best we had on our trip to India. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and they obliged with our requests to make the food spicy! The Fish cooked in Banana leaf is especially recommended. At the front of the... More

I am the manager of a star hotel and travel a lot. My weakness is good food, which I try at every turn of my travel. And I have travelled far and tasted almost all specialty foods. I dropped into this small restaurant “The Old Courtyard Hotel & Restaurant” in princess street, to pass my time, waiting for my wife.... More
