“A fabulous hotel in this chilled city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

What a perfect place to stay. The location is ideal.The hotel is colonial in style, quite small with lovely rooms. The grounds are small but the pool and garden are lovely. A restaurant with outside dining offers a wide range of beautifully cooked food. The pool feels magical. Rooms have names not Numbers. The staff make you feel so welcome. Faultless

Room Tip: 'Napier' was a lovely room

We decided after three weeks on an Ayurvedic health retreat that Kochi would mark our re-entry into the world, and in theOld Harbour we could not have chosen better. This hotel is full of character and it oozes charm, helped by its prime location in lovely Fort Cochin.
The rooms are well-appointed, the beds comfortable, and the staff attentive to all questions and queries - a big thank you to Pablo, Vineethar and Sukesh.
Not only is the hotel lovely, the food served on the delightful garden is excellent, the kitchen produces and very successful fusion of Indian and European cooking.
This is the sort of hotel you don't really want to leave.

Great location, amazing pool, lovely staff and excellent food. Our room "Tower" was spacious and comfortable with a lovely garden facing balcony. The spa was also excellent, a massage after a long transfer is a must.

We have just spent 3 nights at the Old Harbour hotel. It is in a great location - walking distance or tuk-tuk ride from all the main sites. Food in the restaurant was wonderful. Staff friendly. Spotlessly clean.

I recently returned for my third visit to this hotel, and I thought it was about time I set out a review. The staff are very accommodating and the service is excellent, the surroundings are simply stunning - the detail which has gone into creating a clean yet colonial ambience to the rooms is lovely. The garden is the highlight - it is simply beautiful and the pool is a decent size and very refreshing. The restaurant at the hotel itself is also exceptionally good and our dinner at the hotel was definitely the best dinner we had in Kochin. The hotel also runs an excellent coffee shop close by for those wanting a proper morning coffee hit. The hotel breakfast is varied and filling. I love the open bathrooms and the sense of space in each of the rooms. I have stayed in both the garden room, the garden cottages and a room inside the hotel and have been happy with them all. My preference is to be close to the garden. Free yoga is offered each morning on the rooftop, at a more sociable hour of 8am (our previous experience in Kerala was 7am starts)! all in all a wonderful hotel and I hope to return soon.

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.
