Absolutely perfect.”

Clean, Affordable, Great Staff/Location

Our stay in Noah's Ark couldn't have been better. The home stay was very spacious and clean and in the middle of all the activities of Fort Kochi. All of our site seeing activities had been catered for, including backwater trip and a tour of the town. It was my birthday while I was at the home stay and Diana was good enough to pay for my tour of Kochi as a birthday present for me. Couldn't have been better!!!

What an incredible experience!”

Lovely proprietors, centrally located, fantastic accommodations

Our stay was truly memorable. We considered this to be the best accommodations we received on our travels through India and are incredibly thankful to Noah's Ark and Diana. They were extremely helpful and kind to us and did a great job of pointing us in the right direction for places. They gave us amazing restaurant recommendations and arranged massages, airport rides, and cultural activities for us. They even have made their own little booklet of things to do around Fort Cochin for the aimless wanderer! I cannot speak more highly of how enjoyable this stay was for us and would heartily recommend Noah's Ark to anyone considering a few nights in Fort Cochin. It's well worth it!

Lovely little place close to Fort Cochis main sights”

We were a family of four staying two nights. Despite arriving late, an additional mattress was provided for us to our youngest girl. The place was very clean and well attended. Noah's ark Homestay had a "European feeling" about it, clearly used to cater for western travelers. A nice breakfast was provided. All in all a lovely little place, calm and very well maintained and just a street or two away from the main attractions of Fort Cochin.

-Central location, service, clean.

Best place to stay at Fort kochi. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic. Nice rooms and brilliant atmosphere. There is also a common balcony you could use for BBQ. Location was very convenient and centralised. All that you may want to see is in walking distance. They arranged us tickets to for a local performance as well as cab to the train station. Definitely recommend to anyone who like to stay at Fort kochi.

Delightful host, comfortable stay”

I would recommend staying at Noah's Ark. Diana is a delightful host, and her smile always made me feel welcome in her home. The home-made breakfast was delicious and a nice change from the hotel buffet. Diana was responsive to fixing issues with the TV and wifi, which occasionally went down. My room was spacious and comfortable, although the bathroom could use updating.

Best & most reasonable place in Cochin to stay ”

owner couple Jerry & Diana are very fine, gentle & caring people. it is located very close to some of the best restaurants with easy access to bus, auto and ferry

I stayed with my daughter for two nights at Noah' Ark and found it a memorable experience. It being our first homestay ( that too after cancelling our bookings at hotel Trident in Willingdon)we were a little skeptical. But lovely couple Capt Jerry & Diana made us very comfortable with their very personalized and full of warmth reception. Besides, rooms are so reasonably priced that one wonders why they don't become greedy, especially when their Home stay is always in demand from the foreigners. More so, Diana refused to charge money for the breakfast she served me ! This is unheard in this super-greedy world of unscrupulous hoteliers. Stay the way you are, Diana & Jerry. Hope to stay with you again .

Lovely hosts”

Diana and Jerry are simply charming and about as warm and helpful as one could imagine hosts to be. Location is perfect. Big room has great bed.

Wonderful hosts, as I said. Kochi is so small that you don't need to be "right there", and costs are higher the closer you get to the high-demand area, which is why I didn't give it a 5 on value, but that's nitpicking. Didn't try Indian breakfasts because I got sick (do NOT eat street shawarma in Kochi -- turns out people have died from it, so I'm lucky to just get a bad gut), but I bet they're great!

Diana was very kind and let us have a late checkout which was much appreciated. She runs a very nice homestay. Getting bags up the spiral staircase to the second floor is quite hard work though! The location for all Fort Kochi's tourist attractions and transport links is excellent.

This is in the centre of Fort Cochin attractions. Foreigner restaurants are pricey but a little hunting will net you some very cheap and good Indian meals. Our host gave us all sorts of really helpful advice and arranged our taxi ride out of town for a fair price. The rooms were a little hot without the air con running and the circular staircase was a little rough with heavy bags... All in all we were satisfied and would go back.
