Old Courtyard Hotel in Fort Cochin
Old Courtyard, which is built over 200 years ago as a private residence, incorporates the best of Colonial Portuguese architecture. It has been restored to its original grandeur, with ancient arches and alcoves around a courtyard.
The Old Courtyard Hotel has eight rooms overlooking the courtyard. Each room, with its restored wooden floors, old furniture and unique four poster beds with mirrors and tiles fitted in the wood work, transports guests to a bygone era of luxury and comfort. The larger rooms in the hotel are on par with hotels which are more expensive.
On summer evenings, it is soothing to sit around the tall old mango tree, soak up violin, flute music or clay pot drum rhythms played by local musicians. Swap stories with guests or with the well-travelled owners, Rose and Jacob Kuruvinakunnel or enjoy Continental-style cooking. Follow the grand wooden staircase to the 8 guest rooms, varying in size but all charmingly decorated.
And when you have lazed around inside the hotel, step outside to check out the Jewish spice shops, Chinese fishing nets, a Dutch palace and India’s oldest church. It’s an affordable, relaxed setting, where you can roam around in a group, but wouldn''t miss company even when alone. Its centrally located, with plenty of attractions right outside the door. You can listen to the live classical music.

How Karma Kerala Hotels Rates WorkThe price of hotel rooms changes from day to day and season to season so we check for each customer to see what the best rate will be depending on their requirement, length of stay and so on. If you want a wonderful stay, why not find our what we can do for you.
What does Cheapest MeanPeople assume that the cheapest rates apply to all rooms so they book the cheapest! But, they are missing a trick on this: hotels have great rooms and rooms on the wrong side of the tracks and so they offer out the low quality rooms to online portals who don't care about quality, just the price of the room. We, on the other hand, tend to focus on quality so we ask for specific rooms that may be more expensive but damn, they are much better too!
Never Knowingly Beaten on PriceWe know people are nervous and ask themselves: can this be true? So we make an offer to you: if you can find the room cheaper, we will match your quote. That means you have nothing to worry about and you get the best local advice.
