The Old Courtyard Hotel was known as Lily Koder’s house. The house was built for Lily Koder’s brother, but unfortunately he did not live long to occupy the house. And since Lily Koder was unmarried, she lived in that house with some nephews. When the nephews migrated to Israel, she lived there alone. Her brother lived in the Koder House which was connected to her house by the shop next door and by a bridge over the road. She used to spend time and eat at her brother’s house. Old Courtyard, Fort Kochi
Lily Koder was well known among her colleagues and in the society and the young girls used to go to her to learn bridge and French. She died in the early 90’s and the house was left abandoned until it was bought over in 1999. Jacob and Rose Kuruvinakunnel found Lily Koder’s house the perfect setting to start their own hotel. Being a graduate of Ecole Les Roches, Cran Montana, Switzerland, it was their dream to find a place they could transform to a small and intimate hotel.
This hotel is centered around a charming cobbled courtyard framed with elegant arches and a stately old mango tree in its center. During the season, in the evenings, you can sit around the tree and enjoy the enchanting music played by local artists using the violin, flute and clay pot drum rhythms. With Jacob’s love for antique furniture, he searched all over to find the kind of furniture he envisioned to fill the place. Thus, he created rooms in the colonial style of four poster beds, intricate cupboards, tables, lion face, 5 headed elephant and other unusual pieces. His love of art enabled him to collect original art work and paintings which are show cased in the Old Courtyard Restaurant and rooms.
Traipse up the grand wooden staircase to the hotel’s 8 rooms. They are set in an intimate milieu and are charmingly furnished with quaint Colonial furniture. The rooms vary in size and are correspondingly priced.

Among the ambrosial array of desserts, “Rose’s cheesecake” is justly famous!
