We stayed with Saj and his lovely family in March of this year. Basic very clean rooms freshly cooked breakfast every day. Everything within walking distance. With Saj's help two day tour organised to Munnar and tea plantation with car and driver (Naveen) and dropping us to Alleppey thereafter. One of the highlights of our fantastic stay in Kochi. We...

My friend and I were out backpacking in India for a month in summer 2014 and of the dozen or so places we stayed at across the country, Sajhome was far and away the best accommodation, and massively exceeded our expectations. From the lovely gentleman who picked us up at the airport, to the perfect rooms, food and excellent location,... More

By far the best place we stayed in India (on a one month backpacking trip). Saj (the host) was fantastic - he helped us arrange travel within Kochi and the various excursions we undertook and always had a smile on his face. His family were always at hand if we needed any help (including a complementary singing session!). Breakfast was... More

We stayed at Sajhome for 3 nights this July, after looking up the reviews on Tripadvisor. Ideally, this place should be categorized as a B&B, not a hotel. Sajhome is a house, with Saj and his family living on the ground floor of the same house and the 5 rooms on the upper floors are for guests. What we really... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night. The guest house rooms are on the second floor while Saj and his family live downstairs. Conveniently, there is an ATM downstairs as well. For a no frills place, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The free wifi worked great, which is unusual for a guest house (we... More

We started our trip staying with Saj and his family who we found very helpful and informative. Delicious Keralan breakfasts, large and inviting rooms with balcony and in a great central location. Saj recommended places to stay in other areas of Kerala which were also perfect for us. We returned again twice on our trip and every time was greeted... More

Used Saj's as a bit of a base as we went back and forward for 2 weeks in Kerala during monsoon. Saj couldnt have been more helpful in organising things for us and giving us some great advice and pointers on what to do. The house is very well maintained, has only a small number of rooms, reasonable rates, and... More

We only had a short time in Kochi, but staying at Sajhome felt like we were staying friends/family. Immediately felt at home with Saj and his friendly family. Saj was an excellent source of local information, gave us map to orientate us (Sajhome is only a short walk from main attractions) and fixed up tourist highlights very quickly as we... More
