Contrary to other reviews, the owner was rude and difficult to work with. He made an error on booking a tour for us and tried to blame us, and later wouldn't honor the fact that the rate on booking.com including taxes. Generally he was challenging to work with and made our stay less enjoyable. The ancillary staff, by contrast, were... More

I stayed for 4 nights at Sonnetta, my first stop of a 2 week trip around India. Sonnetta was by far my favourite place on all of India. The owner was so friendly and helpful, even after we arrived a day late as we had put the wrong date on the email that we would arrive. We had a driver... More

It was an awesome experience staying here. All the facilities are too good. The owner of the residency and other staff's behaviour is also appreciable. The expense will be worthy. They were ready all the time to help u in any sort of situation.

I booked this home stay after reading previous TripAdvisor reviews. It turned out to be just as good for us. The staff were on hand to welcome us, though we had arrived on a late flight from Goa. Room was clean, bed comfortable, with a fridge, ceiling fan and air-con. The owner and staff have been very helpful, arranging taxis,... More

I cannot recommend this homestay enough. All of the staff were amazingly helpful, booking us tickets for a local Kathakali, allowing us to print plane tickets in the reception, changing our room bookings to allow us to stay away for last minutes plans to visit Munnar and to stay on a Houseboat: nothing was ever too much trouble.The rooms were...

My wife and I stayed at the Sonnetta Residency for three nights. Everyone was very helpful booking us backwater tours at short notice and arranging breakfasts to suit. The room (205) was air conditioned and had a hot shower as well as the usual bucket. Breakfasts were very nice starting off with toast but wesoon changed to the Keralan breakfasts.... More

I spent a couple of days in this place, with a friend of mine: the location is awesome, exactly in the middle of Fort Kochi. The staff was really helpful, the rooms really clean! And for the price is really a good deal! I recommend
