We arrived in Cochi late evening, exhausted and weary after a long journey and were greeted warmly by the host, and shown to our immaculate suite and bathroom. After we checked in, we were sent up tea and coffee (even though there is no restaurant, but breakfast is available), leaving us feeling refreshed. The location is great, it is on... More

In this place you feel like in a prison. The rooms are very small the doors will be locked at a certain time, that you can´t go out and can´t come in. The owner is not friendly and showed aggressive tendencies when my male friend wanted to come in to help me to carry my luggage. I can not recommend... More

The lady guest who booked with us in January 2014 changed her booking dates almost 4 times and she finally checked in during mid Jan. While she was staying with us it was her habit to return home very late with different male friends with which we cannot compromise. Being a family run guest house, we have set policies. We... More

We arrived at the Kapithan Inn after the manager of the Casa Linda had double booked us. I was initially uneasy as I had researched all our accomodation on our trip to Kerala and this was not planned. However the owners were really friendly and after being shown our room I felt at ease. The room was clean and well... More

A wonderful peaceful stay in a lovely family guesthouse. Very clean and comfortable bed. As an older traveler, I appreciated the quiet and well- kept accommodation. Very centrally located and walkable and quiet. I highly recommend!

Located within walking distance of major attractions, Only a few doors down from the Kathikalli performance. Many restaurants within short walking distance. Owners were very friendly & helpful - treated us like family. They made all arrangements for backwater tours, Kathikalli, airport transportation; made recommendations for sights to see, restaurants to try (and to avoid), and gave very good advice... More

We had a lovely time staying at the Kapithan Inn over New Year. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the owner was incredibly helpful with anything we needed. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the building is in a nice quiet position opposite the recreation ground. We opted to return for an extra night and would certainly stay... More

Had a very nice stay here. I moved here because I was feeling ill and needed air conditioning. The owner was very helpful in answering my questions and helped me to find a doctor. Felt like I could rely on them to figure out what to do or how much a tuk tuk should cost. Room was nice and cozy.... More

They charge twice as much as any other much nicer homestays nearby. On the top of it, our room was small and dark with an expensive laundry service. The owners are very money focused and not particularly nice. They have a slave boy whom they treat in a quite rude manner. Avoid it!

First of all we thank this customer for making this review in such a bad taste so that he gave us a chance to explain the facts. He has not given any details for his complaints. Here it goes, two men and a girl came to our guest house (not home stay) at 2:45 a.m. and wanted to check in.... More

The owners of this small homestay are really nice and can help you with other travel arrangements or trips to the backwaters. All the major sights and the ATM in Kochi are in walking distance. Breakfast is available.
