The Old Courtyard

More than two centuries old, built by the Portuguese when Cochin was their window to the spice trade, the Old Courtyard is centred around a cobbled courtyard, the heart of this delightful little hotel. A grand old staircase takes you to the eight well appointed rooms varying in size, but charmingly decorated. Step outside and you will encounter Chinese fishing nets, India's oldest European church and spice shops amongst other attractions.
