          When I arrived the manager wasn't expecting me. He tried to give me a single room with no A/C. I booked a double room with A/C! The room wasn't ready: no toiletries,no towels,no water...The room had some humidity stains and the pain was missing above the window. Holes In the curtain and no lock on the window. The concept of "Boutique Hotel" is different in India...Nice and helpful staff.

          superfriendly and helpful staff, great location, clean rooms

          We absolutely loved our stay at Fort Castle. The hotel is run by a family and the manager is a lovely man, always with a smile on his face and often a child on his arm, who would always make an effort to help us out if we needed it. We had some problems getting in contact with our travel agency when we arrived and the manager came up with ideas of how to find them when the phone number we were given didn't work and went through a lot of effort to track down the people - at the same time as he was helping other guests that had lost their luggage or had other problems! The rooms were clean and the AC worked well (though no hot showers but it was ok as it is very warm in Kochi anyway and the water was not freezing cold), and there is free wifi in the reception, which also reaches some of the rooms. The location is great, on a quiet street but still in the heart of Fort Kochi, so only 50 m to restaurants, shopping and sights! For a mid-range hotel I think it is great, and I would recommend it anytime and if I ever go back to Kochi, this is where I would stay again!

          Good place to visit Fort Cochin”

          Location, prices

          We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. It's very close of "Chinese fishnet" and connection to other island are very practical. We got the room First floor "with a view". Staff is very gentle and helpful. Nota: The nice picture of the swimming pool is from the hotel next door, not in Fort Castle :)

          Bien mais un peu cher quand même....

          Pas mal, je pense qu'il y a mieux en rapport qualité prix, mais c'est correct.

          Rien de bien

          L'hotel est certes à proximité de la plage mais beaucoup d'autres sont situés dans ce meme quartier de Fort kochin. Hotel très décevant pour le prix. Je n'ai pas aimé la chambre et ses colonies de fourmis à la tête de lit ni la salle de bains . Lavabo vraiment pas top et en plus plein de fourmis également.

          部屋が清潔できれい、スタッフがタクシーやツアーの手配をしてくれる、お湯が出る

          場所はちょっと分かりにくい所にありますが、フォートコーチンの中心地にあり、チャイニーズフィッシングネットにも近いのでとても便利です。部屋は清潔ですが、タオルが少し汚かったです。でも、熱いお湯がちゃんと出ます。 オーナーが観光の相談にものってくれて、カタカリダンスのチケットの手配や翌日のタクシーとバックウォーターの手配もしてくれました。朝食は簡単なものですが、パンにフルーツ、卵を自分の好みに調理して出してくれます。(目玉焼き、オムレツ、スクランブルエッグ、ゆで卵など)コーヒーか紅茶、マンゴージュースも付いてます。 個人でやっている小さなホテルですが、スタッフもみんな親切で、オーナーのSHINE(シャイン)もとても親切で良い人でした。
