We stayed in Old Harbour Hotel on September 2012 for 4 nights. As we booked in advance, we were happy to discover the Hotel looks even better than in the online pictures. It's a great boutique hotel, also by western standards, which is perfectly located in the heart of Fort Cochin. The hotel has a colonial style decoration, with a...

We spent three nights here. The hotel is decorated in a "spare" style with antiques and flowers. It has a lovely swimming pool set in a really beautiful garden in which meals can be taken. In the evening it is lit and Indian music is played. The staff were incredibly helpful and courteous. Breakfast was great - try the masala...

Our arrival in Kochi was disappointing as we were met by a really surly, grumpy driver from The Old Harbour Hotel. This did not set us off with a great impression from the start. The car was awful, dirty towels on the seats, no cold water, not great. On arrival at the hotel, the boot of the car was opened...

We appreciate the feed back and have worked with our transporter , We do have a man at the entrance who carries the bags, perhaps at that moment he was attending natures call but im sure the bags to the rooms were taken by our staff. It is unfortunate that the guest did not like our city .

We have just come back from 11days in the Old Harbour Hotel. Wonderful place to stay set in an old Colonial Building. From the start we were met by Sukesh who greeted us with warm & friendliness, throughout our stay nothing was a bother to him. The breakfast was amazing every morning Rahim cooked us something different and even when...

We stayed here for two nights near the beginning of our time in Kerala and had the most magical time. A truly stunning hotel - the lantern-lit garden, seated courtyard area and pool are so beautiful we could have stayed there all day if it weren't for the pull of Cochin and all the exciting things to see. Our room...

We had a delightful stay here shortly after we arrive in India. Sadly we could only get a room for 1 night as they were fully booked but we would have loved to have stayed longer. Our room had beautiful antique furniture and was cool and airy with a lovely smell of lemongrass. The bed was huge and very comfortable....

My mum and I stayed in the Old Harbour hotel for about a week at the end of a fantastic, but very long two month trip in India - we decided to treat ourselves and this hotel was the place to do it. An amazing ending to our trip. This hotel was literally and metaphorically an oasis, paradise. A colonial...

We stayed in the newly refurbished, Dreamz House (part of the Old Harbour Hotel) which was absolutely wonderful. This colonial house is so perfect for a couple (we stayed during our honeymoon) who are after tasteful luxury and privacy. The house is so sensitively done, similar to the magical Old Harbour Hotel and also offers another level of privacy. It...

This was a great oasis of beauty and tranquility at the end of our month long India. I could not have asked for a better ending.

A colonial hotel close to the main attractions in Cochin. Excellent, friendly service. Our room was clean and spacious including a fridge and tea & coffee. Breakfast included both Indian and English selections. The dinner options (served in the attractive garden with musicians by the pool) are mixed. We found the fish selections the better choice, the chicken not so...

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
