      Confusion with check in. The hotel seemed to be unaware about our arrival. The name is too similar to homestay nearby. We actually asssumed that we booked the homestay.

      Not the place it once was”
      My last stay at Vasco da Gama will probably be my last. I stayed here regularly for years. Since Vinnie left the maintenance has become non-existent. Sad as this used to be my home in Ft. Cochin. Lights in the rooms not functioning, AC problematic. Shower curtain non-existent until I asked for it. Then I'm given one that has been there since my first visit and is full of mildew. I mean how much does a new shower curtain cost? C'mon guys? The room is stripped to bare bones. They did provide me with a small table when requested. Apu not sure what your strategy is but it is not working. Fresh paint in the rooms would be welcome. Sorry but the whole place now suffers from neglect. Too bad as it used to be a charming little oasis.

      location,a Staff,Food.
      It is not Easy to find so make sure you have the tel number. the staff are very good and so helpful .The breakfast was good cereal toast,coffee,omelette.The rooms are small with hardly any place to put your clothing.the cleaning was poor,we had to ask for the pillowcases to be changed as they looked like they had been used.We had been upgraded with a balcony and it looked like it had not been cleaned for some time so we had to request to have it cleaned.The mattress on the beds was so thin it was like sleeping on a hard floor. I am an older traveller and need more comfort a younger person will be happy to stay but I was only there for two nights.

      staff, location, porch
      It's a quaint hotel that I visited on off-season. Only one other couple stayed at the time. I felt like I could come and go as I pleased. They had filtered water at my disposal, didn't charge extra for tea. Breakfast was eggs, toast, bananas + tea/coffee. English speaking staff during day who could help direct you with activities. Otherwise a sweet old man in dhoti that could help you with smaller things and a twinkle in his eye. I stayed in the font. I had a nice little porch I could read on in the mornings. I was near all the shops and chinese fishing nets. The room was the perfect size for me with fairly clean everything and a wonderfully functional whirring fan. Water was always warm. I never used the AC, so don't know if it worked, though the folks upstairs used it and said it kept the rooms quite cold. Great place for the money! loved my experience. :)

      Located in the heart of Kochin, simple and clean hotel
      The breakfast was a bit funny, because the chef seemed so stressed, and it took quite long to get a simple omelette. But the rooms are nice and clean. A bit loud if other guests are talking in the dining area or corridors.

      Run down, overrated place”
      Good position in Fort Kochin
      The place isn't properly looked after and not very clean. The breakfast is very poor and does in no way justify the high lodging rate . There are definitely better places in Cochin. We stayed there over New Year's eve 2013. It's only the closeness to the fishernets etc. that makes it interesting. The Kochin beach however has meanwhile turned into a mere garbage dump, it's disgusting!

      location, helpful management, room with balcony
      Stayed 3 nights. The room was an adequate size with a balcony looking over a side street, pleasant furnishings, a/c, 24 hr hot water, and it was clean and quiet. The two biggest pluses about this hotel is the location- very close to the water and main strip; and the manager, who was very helpful. We were after a motorbike to take inland, and on his recommendation, we were hooked up with a well-maintained bike for a reasonable price that was ours immediately. Similarly he organised a taxi for us to the airport and offered us a reasonable price on a very late check-out (our flight was late at night). All in all he made our stay much easier.

      Good location
      We opted for a more expensive hotel for our last night in fort cochin however we were greeted with a smelly/dirty room without toiletries and a rock hard bed. We weren't expecting the Hilton but when we raised the issue of the smell the owner suggested we were making it up after the staff had agreed with us. Save your pennies for somewhere else.
