    A very good place in Cochin”

    We really enjoyed our stay here. Though the facilities seem slightly dated at first, they are actually very functional and clean. The rooms are the right size and have everything that's necessary. The breakfasts are good, though you need to specify what type of food you prefer the night before. The place can organize taxis and day trips, and the owner is very helpful, kind and accommodating. The location couldn't be better, as it's in the middle of the old Fort Cochin. We are really happy we chose to stay here.

    Great instant relationship with the small staff, very nice rooms. ”

    For the money I paid for a nite, I decided to pay for a 2nd right away, since my room was the most inexpensive but so well decorated and concise in its facilities. I'd have to say I highly recommend this 200 year old building that's become a very comfortable boutique hotel at very reasonable cost.

    The room at Sonnetta Residency was big, comfortable, clean, and quiet. There was plenty space to store clothes and luggage in the closet and shelves. The staff was very attentive and made us feel welcome. The whole guesthouse was decorated for Christmas: very cute! Staying at Sonnetta Residency was like being at home away from home. As for the location, it's ideal. Princess Street has charm, and it is close to everything: restaurants, Arabian sea shore, and, in our case, close to the Biennale art installations.

    Great and homely stay”

    the owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The entire place had a very homely and confortable feel to it. Our room was spacious and we had a good nights rest. The shower was great. The only bad thing worth mentioning was the Kerala backwater tour we organised through the hotel. We did not enjoy the tour. It was a full day tour, badly organised, with long drives in an uncomfortable and squashed bus, the boat itself was very hot and uneventful. The lunch was average. There was no water available for most of the day except at lunch and the boat stuck to the big rivers and did not go through any of the actual small "backwater canals". The RoughGuide book recommends using the official tourist office to do a booking and even though we did not follow that route, we would recommend you do.

    Decent hotel, a bit overpriced for what it offers”

    Quite clean place, with all the necessary amenities. The staff was very helpful, they even gave us AC though it wasn't included into our booking price.

    Quite clean place, with all the necessary amenities. The staff was very helpful, they even gave us AC though it wasn't included into our booking price. Hotel is 5 minutes walk from the seaside with fishing nets and stalls with fresh fish, close to the seaside restaurants. However, I think it was overpriced,taking into account that didn’t include breakfast. There were better options (home stays) with the same level of comfort, included breakfast and were cheaper (as we later talked to some other tourists staying around). In Fort Cochin there are loads of options to stay, so I'd say you might as well just walk up and find a place without previous booking.

    Good location, very friendly and helpful service. Overall basic room, but it was worth the money spent.
