After a very late arrival in Cochin, spent my first 2 nights in India staying here. Lovely host family, clean rooms, and a fabulous home cooked breakfast to start the day. Location is also good, easy to explore Fort Kochi

The breakfasts are awesome! The family are really lovely, they really looked after my son and I who were suffering from indian belly! Giving me special ginger shots which really helped. It is a homestay but they have really got it right, being there when you need them but not too much. One of them used to sit with us... More

Well, I had read all these great review of Lazar so I booked 3 nites. I guess I didn't book carefully enough. Many of the reviewers said how well the A/C worked and in general were very positive. So when I booked the only room available (a triple, even though I was solo), I assumed it had A/C. I think... More

My friend and I travelled around Kochi for 3 days and we absolutely enjoyed our stay. Joy and Jaicy truly welcomed us into their home - we got to watch Jaicy work her magic in the kitchen, learn how coconuts are grounded from Joy, and play with their wonderful kids. The complimentary breakfast was DELICIOUS - our mouths are watering... More

We went back to Kochi and to Lazar Residency Homestay three years later, and we found the same wonderful people that had made our stay wonderful the very first time. We spent a wonderful ten days with them, and we were two couples - one of them the parents, and in-laws, respectively of the young couple. It was very important... More

Even if a hotel/home stay is lower in rates I personally still expect a certain level of comfort, and unfortunately I'd have to say that Lazar didn't meet that. The hosts are a very nice couple and good people, and I wish I could say the same for the home stay. We found that the beds were too small, there... More

A clean house where the guests have a separate area from the family which is convenient. Really nice freshly made food for breakfast and friendly hosts. Its in a good location, within walking distance to all the sights of Fort Kochi.

The rooms are very good value for this price. Location couldnt be better, in a small and quiet side road only a few walking minutes from the... More

My Fiance and I were in India for 2 weeks and Lazar Residency was by far the cheapest place we stayed. As we weren't exactly roughing it through India, I can't say Lazar Residency was our favorite place in India. Not helping it either is that we stayed there inbetween stays at two absolutely amazing homestays. For the price though,... More
