Loved the Dutch architecture of the building itself and the huge rooms, corridors, verandas and most of all the furniture, takes us back to the colonial times, which is uncommon nowadays only seen in movies. Amazing beds, armchairs, center tables, dressers and everything in it. Hotel is located in the heart of town, easily accessible to all the tourist spots. Nice restaurants around and close to the Jetty to get into Ernakulum. I recommend this highly for all tourists traveling with children. Extremely friendly staff, thanks to John and the other two guys at the reception.

Room Tip: Choose rooms that are not facing the road

It's a very nice heritage and quiet place for a pleasant family stay. Only thing thats lacking is the restaurant but they are still renovating it I believe. Good budget hotel and recommend for families

This Dutch-colonial-style heritage hotel is one of the best hotels in Fort Cochin: We, I and my 5 Italian friends stayed here for 4 nights. Good location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean and well serviced rooms. Location is very convenient for the beach, new and old city , restaurants, shopping areas and sightseeing and just a 2-minute walk from the main bus stand. The rooms are very comfortable and very well decorated, nice and clean, the personnel is very pleasant. The food served in the restaurant (Kerala, continental and Indo-Portuguese) is delicious, with an emphasis on seafood. The staff especially the hotel manager is very keen to attend your needs and he even arranged for us an Ayurvedic treatment. Overall is the better that you can get in Fort Cochin.

I felt very comfortable at Ballard Bungalow. The Staff is very kind.The high rooms are equipped with antique tasteful furnishings. In the high canopy bed with good mattress I slept like heaven. I will stay here again when I return to Cochin in a few months.

Wonderful colonial architecture at an affordable price. This place has a perfect location, opposite the wildly more expensive Brunton Boatyard, and close to the Chinese fishing nets. Despite the name this is not a bungalow. The building is grand and spacious with high ceilings, teak floors and a refined ‘manor house’ atmosphere. I don’t usually write reviews but the charm of this hotel really stood out compared to other places on our 3-week holiday. The rooms are massive with en-suite bathrooms, a/c and free wifi. Our room had a private balcony overlooking mango trees in the courtyard. The enormous bed was a beautiful antique four-poster with a comfortable modern mattress, quality bed linen and big fluffy towels. We stayed 3 nights and were very well looked after by the welcoming and friendly staff who went the extra mile to make sure we had all we needed. I would certainly stay again and happily recommend.
