no need to write more about this place, very well located, with a very nice owner (she makes your breakfast on demand) and with comfortable rooms. Diana was so very helpful to organise our trip to the backwater!
We arrived late but she was there to welcome us.
The house is surrounded by some very nice restaurants
I highly recommend this place

I booked a room for 4 nights.

The room was clean and the breakfast delicious. If, like me, you like to sip your cup of tea while having breakfast, you must remind her of your tea/coffee as soon as you sit sown at the table as Diana brings a teapot half-filled with warm (not hot!!) water after the rest of breakfast is served and eaten which is something that I have never experienced before.

Nevertheless, the room and the house were clean but they could invest in new towels as well as providing a bath towel.

Finally, Diana and Jerry are very helpful in recommending sites and activities.

We had booked room for 2 nights, Noah's ark was a pleasant Home-stay. the house & the rooms are very very clean and very nice. everything was there in the room all kind of things and information. the rooms are very big.
it was our first trip to Cochin and it was the best home-stay. we really enjoyed our stay.
The locations were very near the home stay everything was walking distance, from restaurants to ATM & shopping.
Diana and Jerry are such humble & kind hearted people that i have ever met in Cochin they were very helpful & very kind.
The breakfast was just outstanding. there are variety of breakfast dishes. we had south Indian breakfast it was just yummy & tasty!
This was our first trip to Cochin and the hospitality offered by Diana & Jerry has encouraged us to come back soon.
It was a unforgettable trip, we had a really good time! I recommended to everyone Go for Noah's Ark!

We stayed here for seven nights. The rooms were exceptionally clean and quiet with clean towels daily and plenty of hot water.
Diana and Jerry were very welcoming. The breakfast and laundry service were very good.
All in all – highly recommended.

Noah's Ark was a pleasant homestay in a great location in Fort Cochin. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Our breakfasts were very tasty and their dinner suggestions were also very good. They also recommended a houseboat company for us in Alleppey which was a disaster and so they lose points for this, otherwise a great spot!

Dear Guest,


We are sorry that you had a bad experience with your houseboat. We have stopped sending guests to this company now and the new company we deal with has had no issues as of yet. I have taken over managing the activities at Noah's Ark Homestay. We assist in houseboats but they don't belong to us. We recommend them based on their reputation and guest experiences. Whenever we have heard a bad review we stop sending people there and find a better alternative.We do our best to assist the guests with all their activities,I have even gone personally to most of them to see how they are like but since the activities are not done by us directly I can't guarantee their service.But I assure you whenever we hear a genuine bad review about a place after investigating it we stop sending guests there.

Joel
