There's no doubt. Having traveled the world and stayed at almost all types of hotel accommodations, I say without a doubt that Sonnetta Residency is five stars on all counts. Rooms are well appointed and laid out with all possible amenities and fixtures you will ever need. Mr Xavier has gone out of his way to make rooms very senior... More

We hadn't pre-booked and needed two rooms but only one was available on our first night but this was not a problem as the proprietor arranged for extra beds to be provided. Nothing was too much trouble. All staff were very friendly and helpful and arranged many of our excursions for us. The location was great, close to lots of... More

I booked this hotel for my parents and his friends. They gave me a super satisfactory review about thier stay here and appreciated Mr.Xavier (owner) for the way he kept the place clean and neat with all necessary things in the room and toilet. This is not a hotel with grand decorations and huge infrastructures. But this is a place... More

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.

I made a booking for a group of 14 which was a stretch for any place. These guys were fantastic and made sure all of us were comfortable. 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

You will feel home when you will come at Sonnetta's residency. Very close to the center of Fort Kochi, the delightful staff will help you to have a great stay here. In-room Wi-Fi access, nice breakfast. The room has everything you would need for a stay in Fort Kochi: a fridge, shower, etc. They were very helpful to organize our... 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
