Upon arriving at Mothertree they seemed to have forgotten about our booking and so moved us to Good Karma. My friends were given a lovely a room on the first floor with balcony.... More

First place we stayed when we arrived in India and one of our favourite. Anoob the owner was so helpful and made our stay. The rooms were very clean and incredible value for money. The breakfast and restaurant were lovely as well. Would definitely recommend!

This is a pleasant place to stay in Fort Kochi and is well maintained. The main value is the help from the owner, who is very well informed on local and international matters. We paid slightly more than is necessary for a 4 day tour in Kerala, so don't forget to haggle if you have the energy :) The hotel... More

We had a lovely stay at GK, a quiet B&B on walking distance of Fort Kochi. The rooms are basic (optional airco) and clean. We loved to take the fresh prepared diner, in the evening, on the rooftop, sharing our day with other guests. Ekur is an excellent, friendly, cook; ask him for his Kerala thali or fresh seafood platter.... More
