Old harbour hotel, the erstwhile home of the employees of the tea broking firms is the first hotel in Fort Kochi. Originally built over three centuries back, it boats a strong Dutch and Portuguese architectural style in its white washed facade. Tastefully refurbished without blotching the original flair and flavour of the colonial architectural style, it is one of the most favored hotels in Fort Kochi. Located near some of the most famous sights of Fort Kochi including the Chinese nets along the sea coast and the tree lined streets of this heritage city, Old harbour is indeed a choice well made!

The hunky owner of this hotel Edgar Pinto has ensured strokes of vivacity and flamboyance in its new look even while retaining the original heritage hotel concept.
