Right on the main strip of hotels in Kochi this place was affordable, clean and comfortable. Laundry service was reasonably priced and the ladies who worked downstairs were lovely. Room was large and had 2 double beds which for the price was a nice addition. Would happily stay here again, mainly for the good value offered. Didn't try the restaurant... More

Sometimes when u go to a restaurant and the food is a bit bland and average the staff can really make the experience pleasant... this was NOT the case here. There was two possible three waiters who appeared to be moving very fast but achieving very little, it took ages to get served and menus then took ages again for... More

Sit down and order a rice meal (thali), it's one price for locals, a much higher price for tourists, which of course they like to keep secret by having the local price displayed in Malayalam on the wall. That's why, as a regular to Cochin, I'll not eat in this place again.

We booked a boat trip with Augustine and what a fabulous experience. He was so friendly and helpful. The tour was exactly what the pamphlet said and there were no unexpected charges or hidden costs. Definitely use Augustine to make trip bookings!!

Didn't stay at the hotel , but ate twice at the bakery cafe . The food is fairly standard and slightly overpriced , we tried the thali which was OK but too much chilli and wet dishes were small, basically its a lot of rice (overcooked) no breads and one papadum as well as a stale sweet , really disappointing...

Staff wonderful. Local rooms standard were good with clean facilities and safe environment. The breakfast was excellent and the added bonus of the bakery led to an overall excellent feel. The owner and also the trip advisor/ receptionist were both ultra helpful. The owner got up at 4am to see us off. The poison in Fort Cochin was great for... More

We stayed at Elite Hotel in January of this year after stumbling upon it as we had no booking after arriving in Cochin. The hotel is basic but spotlessly clean, and is home to some of the finest cakes and pastries we sampled in India. Great value for money. The staff and hotel manager, Augustine, were extremely helpful and knowledgeable,... More

Stayed here in March 2013. Very clean and very central with friendly service. About 700 rupees a night for en suite twin room. Also used the travel agent based on the ground floor, next to the restaurant, who arranged a brilliant overnight boat trip on a smart new eco-boat (as claimed!) with delicious food on board: Breeze Houseboat.
