Reviewed 7 April 2012

A good place to stay, the breakfast included was never mentioned! but at the price I negociated then perhaps it would have been pushing it, initially stayed for about 4 nights then travelled by motorcycle for the next 2 weeks and the guesthouse kindly looked after my holdall whilst away, would definately recommend this place and stayed another 4 nights before the end of my trip. and they don't mind what time you arrive or leave!
make sure you have a decent a/c unit.

We arrived without a booking, but luckily there was room for us. The room was clean and quite with a clean bathroom, with a wonderful hot shower. Breakfast is up on the roof terrance and is freshly cooked and delicious with a good selection.
The staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful. Always cheerful and help, even when we arrived back late or set off very early in the morning. The tour to Munar we wanted to do was fully booked, so they arranged a private tour for us and they helped us with booking train tickets we needed for the next stage of our trip. Ajish walked me through Kochi to show me where the theater was and recomended a cooking course (at the Paradise cafe, with George and Maria, which I thoroughly recomend too).
I would go back there in a heartbeat!

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and were extremely impressed. The room was immaculate and the bathroom was the best of all the guesthouses we stayed at in South India. The rooftop dining area is a really nice bonus, it was a great place to go and relax after a day of sightseeing. The staff, specially Ajish, was amazing. He really went above and beyond to cater to our every whim.

Location is very convenient. You are in easy walking distance to all the sites in Fort Kochi ( or a very cheap rickshaw ride). My favorite part of the location was that we were a few blocks away from Princess St which was a little too touristy for my liking. I would definitely stay here again if i go back to this area.

Room Tip: The day trip to the backwaters organised through the front desk was amazing. Definitely one of the...

Very clean rooms and bathroom, helpful staff (booked taxis for us and let us check in at 4 am), and great location. And nice, easy place to stay in Cochin, you can't ask for much more!

The staff who run this homestay are so so helpful with helping you plan your stay both in Kochi, and your trip beyond. The rooms are clean, spacious, light and it's excellent to have free wifi throughout. The breakfasts, included in the room price, are delicious and eaten in a lovely cool roof-top patio. And the manager is ready to accomodate pretty much any need you have. Such a lovely friendly place.
