This is a great hotel, priced really reasonably, in a really perfect location, just outside of the main hubbub but easy walking, or tuk tuk distance to the main town. Within 5 minutes of checking in we saw dolphins swimming in the sea directly out from where the restaurant is and we continued to see them each day we were there. Food was very good and the restaurant has such a cool breeze flowing through with the views of the sea it is idyllic. Beds were very comfortable. We booked late so they only had a garden view room available on the first floor but directly outside the room there were seats with a table and large windows you could open to get a breeze while watching the dolphins...again! This was also the best place to get wifi. I really liked Fort Cochin, it is forward thinking, is the only place we visited where we saw waste paper bins in the streets and we also noticed a huge sculpture being made out of recycled plastics. Well done Fort Cochin for setting such a great example.
- 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
