This 8 room boutique hotel was built in 1506, but is completely modernized. The location in historic Fort Kochin can't be beat. One block from the Arabian Sea and walking distance from all the historic sites. The rooms are large and three have balconies (get one). The food is excellent and the staff is fantastic. Visit Kerala and stay here for a magical experience.

Arrived at the Le Colonial and was greeted with cold drinks and wet towels. We where given a room on the ground floor facing the main road. the room was very clean and we where so tired we decided to get our heads down for a long needed rest. We found this practically impossible, there was a constant sound of horns blasting from the main road. As much as we tried this seemed to be a major problem. We asked the staff if they could move us to a room with a lot less noise and they where very helpful and moved us upstairs to a room at the front of the building. Throughout our 3 night stay, the staff where very attentive and could not do enough for us, there is lots of old army memorabilia and pictures for you to spend a good few hours mulling over, The wife booked herself a few Massages and this was done in our room, very comfortable stay and constant supply of clean towels and breakfast was lovely. We spent our days visiting the old port and the chinese fishing nets still used today, also the Dutch Palace, Synagogues, St Francis Church, Santa Cruz Basilica and the Greenex Theater for a fantastic Culture Show and famous dance forms of Kerala. We also went on a Cookery Course with Nimmy and Paul booked in advance as she is well known in Kerala for her cooking skills. The 3 nights spent in Cochin was lovely and more then enough time to get round the area to visit all the places mentioned. The hotel was found to be very comfortable, staff where lovely and rooms where clean and tidy, breakfast was also lovely and I would certainly stay there again.

we stayed here over new years eve and wanted a relaxed, chilled out place. This is a small property with just 8-10 rooms; each room is different and has its own character. The property is an old house (apparently the oldest house in India) built in 1508 and renovated beautifully keeping the old character and giving it the new luxury fittings and comforts. The service is outstanding. The entire staff go out of their way to please you and bend over backwards to fulfill your every wish. The resident manager - Smita is very charming and talks to all the guests quite a bit and makes them feel at home. The breakfast is great. They have a small pool as well. Its a bit pricey during high season; but worth every rupee. Will definitely go back!

Stayed at Le Colonial as part of our India tour. Fantastic room with sumptuous bathroom. Confortable beds, A/C - all mod cons. Staff lovely and helpful. Food good although only had breakfast which was great. Very centrally located within walking distance of sea and local shopping. Hotel beautifully converted from old colonial house. Very homely feel to it. Would definitely come again.

This is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the Fort area in a wonderful colonial building. The size of the property makes it feel like a home rather than a hotel and as this is the end of their season we were the only guests. I can't thank the staff and wonderful manageress enough for everything they did to make this a wonderful start to our Keralan holiday. Having stayed previously in the Malabar House many years ago, I much preferred the atmosphere of the Le Colonial, as it is not like a hotel.

We had the Jan Van Spall room and as I was travelling with my mother this was perfect. The room is huge with two antique but very comfortable double beds. The decor has a wonderful mix of antiques and a lovely large bathroom. The small terrace with a lovely view across the swimming pool was sadly not really put to good use by us, but would be nice to use if the weather was cooler. It was 41 degrees the day we arrived. The air conditioning in the room was very efficient. They also offered us the choice of dinner outside or the air conditioned dining room and we used both during our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea on the terrace and soft drinks around the pool. The pool is not huge and there are deck chairs for sitting in, which was fine for us.

The dinners we had were both excellent. We left the choice up to the chef and were provided with a range of curries and they also accommodated my mother's love of prawns by doing another separate additional dish of grilled prawns. Desserts were fabulous and the chocolate mousse was better than any I have eaten anywhere. The dining room was comfortable and has some wonderful old photos including a splendid Cartier-Bresson photo of Nehru.

The position of the hotel next to St Francis cathedral puts you in an excellent position for wandering around Cochin and for sight seeing. We were very sad to leave when are two night stay was over.
