Elite Hotel: "Fort Cochin rest place" India Hotel Tip by funky_pigeon

India Hotels: 376 reviews and 459 photos

We stayed in Fort cochin and found a nice place to stay in the main central area on Princess Street.

The place as a wholeis lovely and the hotelis situated in the heart of the portugese area so you end up getting a nice meditreanean feel to the town.

They have fan rooms for 300 on the first floor which when we looked were pretty cramped, and we ended up getting a room on the next floor with a fan and TV for 350 Rs, so for 50 Rs you can have a large spacious room with clean bathroom and enough room to swing a backpack in!

They also have A/C rooms and as we didn't stay in one i can't say the price, but i'm sure they are good.

The hotel also does food and we ate there once, not really the best food we have had, and there are plenty of other places to eat at.

They also can organise onward travel, shopping assistance and laundry.

The hotel is very close to the beach in Fort Cochin to catch the sunsets and also to other sites. Other places can be reached by Bicycle which the hotel also offer
