Sehr zu empfehlendes Homestay in guter, ruhiger Lage in Fort Kochi. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber und gepflegt, mit gut funktionierender Klimaanlage. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Freundlichkeit und große Hilfsbereitschaft der Besitzer, die uns u.a. bei der Bestellung von Eintrittskarten für das Heimspiel der Kerala Blasters (Fussball) und beim Streik der Taxifahrer an unserem Abreisetag zum Flughafen sehr geholfen haben....

It is a really homely place run by most helpful Indian couple. It is situated in a little street so we had a problem to find it but apart from that its location was ideal for us: calm but very central, within short walking distance to main Fort Kochi attractions: Saint Francis (or Vasco da Gama) church, Chinese Fishing Nets,...

Joy was helpful from the very beginning when I booked my room. He replied instantly to messages and booked my airport pick up, which was a reasonable price and went smoothly.
