A very nice place, clean, central location (touristic area). The owner would help and answer all of your question at any time... A humble breakfast and a bit expensive, but overall we were very happy.

My wife and I traveled to India from the US to visit her family and tour Kerala. We stayed at Sonnetta while in Cochin for 2 nights. It was a wonderful stay. The inn is ideally located on a quiet street within blocks of most main attractions. We were greeted by a friendly and inviting staff that was constantly catering... More

One of the best places we've stayed in whilst travelling around India, that good we made two visits within a month! Staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Location is perfect everything is very close. Rooms very homely and comfortable. Free wifi available which is always a bonus :)

We switched to this hotel due to our desire for a comfy and homey stay and we found the owner to be true to his sign:"This home is yours, feel free. Home away from your home". Free use of internet computers, complimentary breakfast, convenient location, cozy rooms, advise and help with anything and personal care make this a great choice.

We have stayed in Fort Cochin six times over the years. We have enjoyed staying at a range of r hotels / guesthouses (the Fort House, Raintree Lodge and Saj Homestay) but for our money Sonnetta is the one to book. The location is unbeatable, the owner and staff are friendly, very charming and professional and speak good English. The... More

Split a very clean and comfortable family room with two others for a total of 1500 Rs including a continental breakfast and free wifi. The hosts were very kind and helpful for helping with arranging bussing and taxis as needed

I really enjoyed my days/nights at Sonnetta Residency. The staff was super friendly and helpful, for instance when my friend got sick they gave her something that made her feel better. I felt safe and well-taken cared of. First when I arrived to Fort Cochin I had booked a room for three nights. I stayed all together for six nights,... More

We stayed three nights at this centrally located hotel in Fort Kochin. It is great location, short stroll to waterfront and lots of restaurants nearby. Room was small, but clean with free WIFI in rooms, hot shower and all the necessary commodities to the room. On a negative note the staff (especially the manager) was unfriendly, lazy and non-cooperative as... More
