Sonnetta is a great place to stay. It's clean,comfortable,approachable and pocket friendly. Mr Xavier and the staff made us feel at home. Had a great experience, enjoyed every second over there. Will definitely come back and highly recommend it to others.

I just spent 2 nights at Sonneta and I met the most lovely family in India. They not only helped me plan and organise the few days I had in Fort Kochi but also made me feel part of the family. I will definitely be back to visit when I next go to Kochi. If it's a family, cosy atmosphere... More

Beautiful rooms, and lovely people with a huge heart that take care of you and give you everything you ask for. They always want you to feel at home and comfortable. I met amaizing people, and I had a wonderful time in Sonnetta. With no doubt it's the best place you can stay in.

We stayed here for 4 nights and nothing was too much trouble. The room was nice (it even had a fridge!!!!) and was great value. The best part was Roland, he was very kind, helpful and no request was too much. Would definitely stay here again. L&J

We arrived after a long flight and a bus ride from the airport to a very warm welcome from Lakshmi, Roland and Xavier. The only room available was a triple above the reception area, but it was very clean and cool and noise wasn't an issue. It was a great base for a couple of days to get our bearings.... More

This is a budget hotel/home stay. I feel it would be hard to beat it for the price, everything considered. The place is spotlessly clean. The location is great if you want to be close to where all the 'action' is. Walking distance to most tourist sites. Very close to the water front and the Chinese fishing nets. The beds... More
