Set in a somnolent quarter of Fort Kochi, Hotel Kimansion is only a short walk from the beach, the Chinese fishing nets and other tourist attractions. The 2500 sq.ft. building is more than a century old and it exudes grandeur of a bygone era in every nook and corner of its spacious rooms. While Kimansion is warm, cosy and definitely not impersonal, it is very much a state of the art hotel. While it is on par with many star hotels, "the tariff rates are affordable". Because of the construction and plan of the house, each guests are assured of optimum privacy. Coming up soon are two self contained, air conditioned cottage within the compound.
