Bernard Bungalow

Parade Ground Rd
Tel: 0484 2216162

This gracious place has the look of a 1940s summer cottage, housed in a fine 350-year-old house that boasts a large collection of interesting rooms. The house has polished floor boards, wooden window shutters, balconies and verandas, and is filled with lovely period furniture.

Old Harbour Hotel

Tower Rd
Tel: 0484 2218006

Set around an idyllic garden, with lily ponds and a small pool, the dignified Old Harbour is housed in a 300-year-old Dutch/ Portuguese heritage building. The elegant mix of period and modern styles and bright colour accents are luxurious without being over the top, lending the place a much more intimate feel than some of the more grandiose competition. There are 13 rooms here, some facing directly onto the garden, and some with plant-filled, open-air bathrooms.

Mother Tree

Bernard Master Rd

There are just a few miniscule rooms in this compact homestay, but the immaculate cleanliness and neat rooftop chill-out space make this place worth seeking out.

Dream Catcher

KB Jacob Rd
Tel: 0484 2217550

Thekkanatt Parayil
Tel: 0478 2522255

This gorgeous 1890s traditional Syrian-Christian home is on a 16-hectare farm surrounded by backwaters, 28km south of Kochi. A restored mansion of rosewood and glistening teak, it has several large and breezy rooms beautifully decor rated in the original period decor (only the ceiling fans are new). There are lots of shaded awnings and sitting areas, a fascinating archive with six generations of family history and the gracious owners will make you feel like a welcome friend rather than a guest.

Grand Hotel

M G Rd
Tel: 0484 2382061

This 1960s hotel on Mahatma Gandhi (MG) Rd, with its polished original art deco fittings, oozes the sort of retro cool that modern hotels would kill to re-create. The spacious rooms have gleaning parquet floors and large modern bathrooms, and the foyer has beautiful vintage furniture. Definitely fine enough to tempt a stay in Ernakulam.

John's Residency

T D Rd
Tel: 0484 2355395

With a cool, yellow foyer featuring interesting clutter such as vintage fans, this is a refreshing place to enter from the busy street. Rooms are small but decorated with flashes of colour: red curtains and bathrooms, that give then a funky feel that is a welcome surprise in this price bracket.
