It's a very nice heritage and quiet place for a pleasant family stay. Only thing thats lacking is the restaurant but they are still renovating it I believe. Good budget hotel and recommend for families 😃

This Dutch-colonial-style heritage hotel is one of the best hotels in Fort Cochin: We, I and my 5 Italian friends stayed here for 4 nights. Good location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean and well serviced rooms. Location is very convenient for the beach, new and old city , restaurants, shopping areas and sightseeing and just a 2-minute walk from...

I felt very comfortable at Ballard Bungalow. The Staff is very kind.The high rooms are equipped with antique tasteful furnishings. In the high canopy bed with good mattress I slept like heaven. I will stay here again when I return to Cochin in a few months.

Wonderful colonial architecture at an affordable price. This place has a perfect location, opposite the wildly more expensive Brunton Boatyard, and close to the Chinese fishing nets. Despite the name this is not a bungalow. The building is grand and spacious with high ceilings, teak floors and a refined ‘manor house’ atmosphere. I don’t usually write reviews but the charm...

We arrived early and they let us check in no problem, the place is really clean and quiet, the rooms are huge! It's an old heritage building right in the centre of the main tourist strip, it's close to all of the main attractions, but when you're inside it feels like you e stepped into the past. This place is...

I spent 3 days in The Ballard Bungalow with friends in one of their 6 spacious rooms. The historic-like boutique hotel is beautiful and situated just in front of the boat jetty and fishing nets area. The staff is friendly and rooms are really clean. I will definitely book again if I visit Kochi in a future. Good value for...

Beautiful old hotel in the heart of Fort Cochin. It has enormous rooms in Indian style A$40. If you love authentic you'll love this, verandas and 200 yr old teak floors. Super clean and super cool. The rooms are really large and generous.

Ballard Bungalow is a quaint, boutique style hotel well located in Bellar Rd in the Fort area. (Note: It was incorrectly located in Burgar St on Google Maps, but I've since added it in the correct location. I found a number of Indian hotels, restaurants, etc have been mis-located on Google Maps). Staff are friendly, gardens are nice and it's...

This was my first night in India in 10 years and I could not have asked for a better place to spend it. The Bungalow itself has a historic charm that speaks centuries more than it actually is. I am not sure if I am just lucky or Rathish did this for me because there were not that many guests...
