Great location on Princess Street. The staff were super friendly, attentive and helpful. Breakfast was simple (toast, butter, jam, banana and masala tea or coffee) but nice all the same. Very helpful at advising us on trips and arranging transportation. Would definitely recommend.

We hadn't pre-booked, but wandered through the door & we're greeted by the very friendly Lakshmi, who let us view the room before we committed. We stayed a week & they were very helpful when we had money issues, letting us call the UK & receive calls on their phone. Some mornings we tried the tradition breakfasts which were very... More

You can't get a more central location in Kochi. The place is immaculately clean. The proprietor, Mr Xavier is constantly on the job providing information and making his guests comfortable. His staff are likewise very friendly. There are only six rooms. People looking for a bit of companionship can always find it in the entrance lobby.

We were all here for the Rickshaw Rally which saw us coming and going every day as we organised many things. There patience with us was incredible. Highly recommend Sonnetta as the... More

This place was recommended to me by a trusted friend,whom I greatly admire. I'm so pleased to say that Sonnetta Residency did not disappoint. The owner is a true gentleman and supremely helpful to his guests and has also chosen a wonderful team who assist him well in running this excellent establishment. The central location of Sonnetta makes most things... More

Sonnetta Residency has many qualities. It's relatively cheap, very close to the Bus Stand, spotless clean, very well equipped and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is included, which adds a nice touch. If you're leaving in the afternoon or the evening and don't keep the room, you're invited to use the top-floor shower (bring your own towel) to refresh... More

This guest house is run by a lovely father figure, Mr Xavier, who is a delightful chap. Staff are very friendly. My room was very pink in colour, but had all the things you need, including some decorative touches such as lamps, TV, vases of flowers (not real) to make it more pleasant. Included breakfast was simple, toast, jam, tea,... More
