I am surprised to see any negative reviews for this place as I stayed here for a week with my wife and found the staff to be nothing but friendly and helpful. The rooms were reasonably priced and the bed was the most comfortable I have slept in during my whole stay in India. I would recommend this establishment whole... More

I visited this place last week and had a nice one day stay... The place is very well located and is very close to sea, children's play park, a choupati type eating place and has a lot of heritage sites and restaurants around to walk to. Good breeze in the evenings and you can enjoy an evening walk on the... More

Centrally located in Fort Kochi area there are only good words to say about this small place - awesome staff, spotless rooms and a very reasonable price. All the better restaurants-cafes are within a few minutes walking distance.

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

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
