I loved staying here in this beautiful old building which was clean and spacious, we had a four poster bed with mosquito netting which was fab! The room had aircon and ceiling fan and was furnished with lovely old pieces. I felt we had a flavour of the past in staying here! The grounds are full of flowers, and breakfast...

Have stayed here before. Still a quiet and friendly place with a lovely courtyard. It was a Jewish House that was rescued from dereliction about 20 years ago and has been sympathetically restored. Good sized rooms, bathrooms could do with updating but very clean.

My husband and I had a 2 night stay in a suite. The room was huge, had wooden floors, solid antique furniture including a wonderful four-poster bed...I felt like we were staying in a museum! The bathroom was a good size. Hot water was readily available. Complimentary bottled water was provided. WiFi connection was rather slow. We enjoyed breakfast in...

We stayed in room 2 overlooking Princess street. Although the streets are busy and noisy (horns!!!) during the day at night they were peaceful and we slept well. The rooms are in keeping with the building, colonial in style. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed really comfortable. The air conditioning was very effective and welcome as we acclimatised...

Superb location, with rooms echoing colonial history. The suite was spacious and grand. Staff were particularly helpful. We ate a reasonable breakfast there once, but then preferred to have breakfasts at the tranquil David Hall about 5 mins walk awy

We stayed in a large room which was decorated in simple colonial style and there was a beautiful old four poster bed. The bathroom was large and very clean with lovely stained glass windows.

If you’re looking to save money, or if you’re into faded glory, this is probably fine. If you like a little bit of basic modern facilities, go somewhere else. The staff is nice enough, the rooms are kinda clean, and with AC, which is a relief, and the hotel is in the center of Fort Kochi (a fairly small quarter...

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. We do agree with you that if you have the money one must stay in the other luxury hotel. But to expect the same kind of service and facility for the cheaper price is not logical. Sincerely, Manager

I stayed at The Old Courtyard Hotel for two nights at the end of a three week visit to India in November with a friend. The hotel is well located for exploring all of Fort Cochin's main attractions and exuberates colonial charm.
