We stayed here 3 nights in february 2012.
In line with the other reviews of this guesthouse, it has it's good and bad points. I would neither recommend nor put off any one from going there.
good points: quiet yet central location / spacious rooms / relative cleanliness / good restaurant "Oceanos" next door / decent price
bad point: we had a bit of a problem with the man who runs the place (by himself, which speaks poorly of the managers), first off though we had email confirmation he was surprised to see us and wanted to give us the said room for 500 rupees over the agreed rate. Later he was overly eager to "arrange" everything for us (from taxis to kathakali tickets) but was not very subtle about his commission, and was disgruntled when we turned down his pricey offers...
Overall, I think you can find a better deal in Kochi which is filled with homestays and guesthouses, and it's unfortunate for Kimansion which with a little investment could be a real gem.
