Padikkal Residency
Ranked #302 of 459 Kochi (Cochin) B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 May 2014

A very average place to stay. Untidy rooms and toilets are run down. Stayed with Family. I could see the waste bin already filled with broken hairs. Pillow covers have lot of stains and they are torn. A/c wasn't cooling enough.

Location is an advantage. Closer to most places in Fort Kochi.
I wouldn't recommend it to my friends.

Stayed there for 1 night with family. Room wasn't clean enough. Toilets were run down. We had coffee in room and it wasn't cleared till night and next morning could see that on the parapet walls it was lying there till next day. When you order coffee, they run collect those cups, clean if half and serve you again.

Advantage: They have restaurant down stairs and very close to attractions at Fort Kochi.

Homestay was not like as mentioned in the description. Rooms were small and suffocating not well maintained. Service was poor. Though sight seeing places are nearby to hotel the stay was not that comfortable.

We loved our stay so much at Fort Cochin & at this guesthouse. Stayed here in December 2013 with my boyfriend. So..we ended up in Fort Cochin by mistake...from Goa we had caught the wrong train (initially we had planned to end up in Hampi). We arrived late at night, dead tired, hungry, without bookings, etc....all this after a 15 hour train trip. Thanks God we found these people. Luckily someone was fixing something in their road at night and this guy suggested that we stay at the guesthouse. Agish (the main guy in charge) gave us food in the middle of night. He was sleeping when we arrived, but when I asked for food because we were dying ..he gladly went to the kitchen himself and prepared it. Thank you Agish :) We thought to stay 1 night & take it from there the next day but ended up staying there for 6 nights..we loved it so much. The people over here are so amazing, friendly and very helpful. Agish already mentioned and Sudha ...a lovely woman, now a friend :) who is always ready and willing to help. They helped us with booking flights, trips and also helped us with our travelling plans for our remaining time in India, not only in Fort Cochin. Also planned for us a day trip to Munnar....which was great. We didn't have the time to spend days in Munnar so we decided to go for a day trip. We left very early so we then can enjoy a full day there. Our taxi driver who stayed with us all day was 'Ram'. Very nice decent man. They also organised a day trip to the backwaters tour and we enjoyed it a lot as well. The room was very comfortable and clean. Hot water was available all the time. They have options of non a/c and a/c rooms - the non a/c rooms have fans. However, I suggest to choose an a/c room - it's worth the extra cost because it can get really hot and funnily enough mostly at night. Wi-fi is available all the time as well at no extra cost and also there is an internet cafe' just opposite (very convenient). We almost ate every day at the guesthouse. Food is homely cooked by Agish himself. It was always amazing. Only minutes by walk there is the 'Kerala Kathajali Centre' - not to to miss the Martial Arts Show , the Kathakali Show and I also went to the Morning Ragas session. Tickets can always be arranged at the guesthouse. The only sad part of this visit was.....when we had to leave ... :) we didn't want to leave ...but it was time to move on !! miss the place and people so much. Would definitely be back if we get the chance.

We booked it through cleartrip but the caretaker didn't received any info about our stay. Sujatha, the owner worked herself to clean couple of rooms in 15 min and make it available to us. A very kind and modest lady. Room was fine and spacious. Best part was that it was right in the heart of Fort Kochi. We just walked in and checked out easily early morning without much issues of checking out. I booked for 3 people and i was given an extra room for fourth person without any extra charges. I guess, no one really shows so much care as we got while we were there. Thanks Sujhata and her staff.
