    Fairly priced, good short stop”

    Great location, large rooms, generally clean

    The Bright Heritage was a short stop in Cochin as part of a larger tour of India, and for a few nights it was a good choice. Our room was basic but very large and was kept clean; there was an in-room safe box which was free to use. We found that the beds were particularly uncomfortable, even for India, although I was able to sleep well. This is partly due to location. The hotel is very central, but tucked in a side street that gets less traffic, so remains quiet. Apart from the beds, our only other issue was that the power frequently went off, even whilst other hotels clearly had no problem, and this also seemed to affect hot water. The staff were superb, and so polite it was almost embarassing. Overall I'd recommend this hotel as a good value short stay, but not for those seeking luxury.

    we took a risk on this new hotel since there were no agoda reviews available, but it worked out great. the rooms are clean, everything worked, the included breakfast was served with a smile. we had a small problem with the lock on our door, but the staff immediately came and fixed it. even the smallest rooms are quite spacious yet make a comfy impression. excellent value for money. ps. the information on agoda doesn't mention it, but the hotel is fully a/c. one drawback: as far as i could see, the hotel does not have an elevator. this makes is less suitable for the physically handicapped.

The only real negatives would be the beds were very hard and hot water only seemed to work at certain times. The sheets and pillows were nice and the room was clean and large. For breakfast it was an omelette and toast. Overall a very good value and a great location.

    Superb Property

    very nice hotel, location in fort kochi is fantastic. manned by young men, who are quite courteous.however concept of service is missing amongst the staff.for example there is total mis-coordination amongst the staff on what breakfast is to be served. most of the times the tea and coffee is cold and when you ask for coffee, they serve tea without much ado. and they don't even realize their mistake, unless you point it out to them. seemingly lack of training or a motivation issue here! as their kitchen is not functional, you have to go out for food however there are many eating good joints nearby which offsets this problem.

    top floor suite, top floor breakfast, close to Fort Cochin activities and sights

    It was ok for the money. The staff were reasonably helpful, but certainly didn't make any attempt to anticipate our needs. Wifi was only available in the lobby, which was a huge inconvenience since the lobby was hot and humid. The antique dealer next door was unncessessarily aggressive and annoying, and we had to turn him away every time we arrived or departed the hotel. The room lock was incredibly complicated and in fact when we first arrivved I couldn't exit my room with out help from the front desk. That's what I mean about not anticipating our needs. Nooone explained this complicated contraption. We figured it out after that though, and made other minor adjustments to make our stay at the Bright enjoyable.

    Location

    This is India, so all expectations must be tempered with the understanding that the country is still a long way below international standards in virtually every respect, so you go with a sense of humour and expect exactly whaat you get....which is very average quality hotel accomodation. Small, uninteresting, not very comfortable, Bright Heritage Hotel only has one thing going for it, and that is its excellent location in the tourist heart of Fort Cochin. The rooms are very average, as are the batherooms, the beds small and uncomfortable, the in-room tv tiny and the hotel food very ordinary. So, sense of humour packed and expectations left at home, you can at least enjoy what Fort Cochin has to offer, which is lovely scenery, great colonial architecture and warm, friendly, smiley people

    What a 'great find'. This place is a must to keep on your list of must stays. It has it all - excellent value for money, small and personable, well appointed rooms and spacious. The staff can't do enough for you and the best thing is that they all have such a happy disposition. I travel often and all around the world for business and leisure, and I have not been as happy with the 'Jewel' for all the above reasons. sure it's not 5 star but it is a good 4 star at a great price, so I will be back. I booked in for 1 night and I'm still here a week later. One downfall is the restaurant - not the best but there are plenty within walking distance from the hotel.

    Along a major road, close to cultural village and other interesting places to visit in Cochin

    The hotel didnt have a lift, but the bellboy carried up the luggage for us. I was a bit taken aback about not having a lift but the hotel was only 3 floors and the staircase was wide and well lit. The room and bathroom were quite modern, clean spacious. The staff gave us pointers on how to spend our time visiting Cochin. Thanks to their advice, we saw how Kathakali dancers have their face painted, and we watched a very interesting cultural show at the cultural village near the hotel. Overall, a good stay.
