Loved this hotel from the moment we arrived in the late evening. It is a small boutique hotel that is very inviting. Our room was large with a king size bed, and we received a welcome coconut drink on our arrival. Loved the fact they still use a very large key to open the door to your room. The phone...

What a beautiful haven - it's a special place! Contemporary art and some lovely out of the ordinary antics, space and clean scent of lemon grass. Nothing is a hassle for the super friendly and accommodating staff. The food was delicious too. Very fond memories.

Lovely old style hotel with delightful staff. Glorious gardens and within a stone's throw of the seafront. Great place to spend a few quiet days enjoying both luxury and being in amongst the local community.

We have a wonderful stay in Old Harbour. The room (Princess Suite) was really big and beautiful and the staff is very very very kindly. Also, the restaurant is incredible. The best place to be in Kochi. We would love to come back in Old Harbour very soon. Julie and Magali

Perfectly located in the water front, Old Harbour Hotel is one of the best and most atmospheric colonial architectures in Kochi, a sophisticated timeless hotel. Charming Kochi-born owner Edgar manages a superb smiling team who couldn't be nicer. The South Indian food is top notch, with an especially good breakfast and the indoor/outdoor garden restaurant under a great tree is...

This was our first time in Kerala and this was the first hotel on our trip. What an amazing start to our holiday! The rooms are amazing-we were in the Tower room which would easily be an amazing honeymoon suite! And apart from the fact it had very interesting paintings on the wall we overlooked the gardens and pool from...

We stayed at this hotel in March. We had a beautiful Garden View room, with access to the gardens and a small patio. The food was delicious. The pool area is very welcome for a cool dip after sightseeing, with sunloungers and towels. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

We stayed 2 nights in the Burgher room and one night in the Bastion Suite. Strengths: Very spacious rooms, decorated with a lot of taste, clean and beautiful view on the garden. Very well located at the tip of Fort Cochin peninsula. Next to small streets, bordered with Portuguese mansions. Very good restaurant (dinner and lunch). If you like sweets...

We spent 3 nights at Old Harbour Hotel : our sublime suite has been decorated with the right taste, respecting the past history of Fort Cochin. The restaurant of the hotel is situated in a charming garden with a swimming pull, so relaxing and refreshing after busy days of discovering Fort Cochin! The Chef of the restaurant has surprised us...

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
