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.

There were so many positive reviews about this place that I was confident with my choice. However, must say I was a bit dissapointed with the quality of the room. The room was very small, hardly any room to put your bag. The sheet was to small for the matress, so that does not seem to bery very hygienic. The... More

We chose to respond to this review mainly because the traveler has made this review for the pleasure of making a negative review. How can she expect a larger room when she booked a budget room for single occupancy ?. If she was looking for a bigger room she could have spent more in the month of January. We change... More
