Everything was great for the price. The room was clean, had air conditioning, a TV, and came with a light breakfast. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help. The location is excellent, close to the beach, restaurants, etc. I would recommend this place to people staying in Fort Kochi.

Sonnetta Residence is a really sweet family run guest house in a great location. It is a little bit tired in places, but in no way leaves you lacking in any way at all. The family are really so lovely and so helpful in every way. They even managed to accommodate us though they didn't have any family rooms left....

We stayed for one night, stopping over on our way to north Kerala. Sonnetta Residency was a very good place to stay: clean, comfortable and good value. The owner was helpful and breakfast was good. The location is perfect if you want to stay right in the thick of Fort Kochi, yet it manages to be quiet. Would recommend it...

After staying in many Guest Houses in India, our expectations were low. But the rooms here are tidy and have all the things you need. Location is the best and the breakfast that is served was excellent. Overall a great stay!

Very Good place, clean, simple and austere. Led by Mr.Xavier and his friendly, courteous staff, and at that price it is a virtual steal! The small breakfast room, close to being cramped almost, provides an excellent opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Nice place, my best wishes to Mr.Xavier and his able, efficient team!
