Kochi is a very beautiful place to visit, and Fort Garden Residency a great option to sleep. It's a very nice homestay, located in a quiet street just 5 minutes walk to the most important places to visit in Kochi. Nice and pleasant family, they helped us a lot during our stay, giving a lot of tips to move around and the best places to visit.
We needed buy some tickets for continue our trip and they helped how to get it. The room is comfortable, not too big but with AC, hot water, wifi and a quiet share terrace with the family for rest and work.
Good choice with no doubt!

We were kindly received by Mr. Thomas in his beautiful home at a quiet place. It's walkable distance from most of the attractions in Fort Cochin. Master art Cafe is very near and a great place to have a good breakfast.

Room tip: Rooms and bathrooms are small but clean and comfortable.

Mr Thomas was exceptionality helpful throughout our stay, from when we contacted him on our way to Kochi and he offered great advice on how to reach his homestay, on our arrival when he detailed a comprehensive itinerary for us to follow in order to take in all the sights and on our final day when he happily let us leave our luggage with him for the day before our evening train (topped off with a plate of fresh pineapple before we left!)
Our room was basic, but for the best rate we were able to find and more than made up for with our hosts attitude and friendliness.

Amidst the picture perfect small homes around the town, this is place is one of the few properties that will win your heart. The Owner, Mr. Thomas is a very friendly and helpful person, always there for you with a smile. We stayed here for one night and he made sure how to make the best of it at Fort Cochin. The rooms where we stayed was on the ground floor. It was very basic but OK to fit in for a day. The only thing that I was not comfortable with was the small bathroom. It was too small to take a shower properly. And the basin was also very tiny. But in a place like Fort Cochin, if you are staying for a short duration, I am sure any hotel or home stay will be the one place where you will only come back to sleep. The town has a lot to offer to the tourists. Nonetheless, I found a lot of families staying in this properties with their children. So this is probably a kid friendly place for families traveling with their toddlers.

We didn't have any meal here so can't really tell about the arrangements. But there are lot of good restaurants around the corners of the property. Besides, if Fort Cochin is your first destination in Kerala, Mr. Thomas can offer you a range of tour plans to explore God's Own Country thoroughly.

This place is so well located that you can walk to any place of fort Kochin from here. A nice, calm and clean homestay run by wonderful host Thomas. Always smiling and always helpful. This is one stop for everything you want to know and do in Fort Kochi.
