Princess Inn has an excellent location on the main tourist drag and almost near everything in Kochi.It is an old colonial dutch house which makes it very charming.My room was right on the balcony and quite spacious.It was basic and rather dark but perfect for the price.The only problem was that during a heavy night rain the ceiling dripped and...

We stayed there in March 2014 with our familyand were delighted. We had a huge family room - hard to come by in India. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Free wifi. Excellent price for the area.

A great budget option for those staying in Kochi. It's right in the middle of town, with great street food options just around the corner. Rooms are comfortable and a large common area was a great place to meet and drink with fellow travelers. We also loved the service from the staff, particularly Freddy, who was great to us while...

Stayed here for a night and I could not get past the musty smell, its very prominent. The bed feels a bit itchy to sleep on and it's not really very clean. The owners are really nice but it was just too smelly. I'm fine with staying in budget places but there are better ones nearby. To be fair the... More

As an experienced traveler who likes a bargain, I've stayed in some pretty 'rustic' places but Princess Inn was the worst. And even the great price (Rs 500 in July) didn't make up for the cramped room, foul smells, unprofessional staff and broken plumbing. When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely man who took our info and passports... More

I visited the princess inn in march 2012 and I really liked it. We had the big room facing the street and although the weather was very hot (and no aircon!) we liked it. The staff is very friendly and not as strict as they pretend to be. They told us to be home at 11 pm otherwise the door... More

For fort Cochin this place is very reasonably priced in a great location near all the main restaurants and shops. The rooms are basic but clean and very spacious. There is a nice communal seating area outside the back rooms which is good for the evenings ( although you might get scoffed by mozzies). The owners were very friendly, helpful... More

The rooms are Princess Inn are simple and clean. The reception area is always staffed, and they are helpful. It has got a great location near many internet cafes, restaurants, and the Chinese nets.Freddy, the manager, speaks excellent English and is really a super guy. If he has a few minutes he is happy to chat with you about India,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid December. Fort Kochi itself is a wonderful place to just kick back and recharge the batteries. Princess Inn is basic, but it is clean. The staff were fairly helpful although they don't actually offer much of the things they advertise - for example laundry or booking train tickets etc - but they... More
