On landing in Kochi (after a very long flight) found charm, character, delight and wonderful friendly service in this "colonial" hotel that harks back to a era of character, style and serenity. A calm oasis in the midst of busy and populated Fort Kochi, the staff here is attentive, super-friendly and helpful. The rooms have kept a traditional feel with...

This was our oasis in a the fort area. The room was excellent, staff great and food very good quality. We returned to the hotel a couple of times each day to get away from the madness outside! The renovations have been done well and the decor perfect for the building.

The whole hotel had a wonderful ambience, the staff were fantastic, the...

The hotel is very nice, the location is just perfect and the guys in the hotel are the nicest persons in town, the service is great.

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.

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
