Our first homestay and we were more than happy. Food facilities could be better, but the location and the warm staff more than made it up. At the heart of the lovely village like town, was great to walk around in the morning.

Elim homestay is a perfect homestay in fort Cochin and I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a pleasant stay in Cochin with calm, quietness and homely treatment. The treatment I and my friend Elena received from Mr George (owner), his wife and his staff is the same as what we receive from our own families. They were... More

I think the Elim Homestay at Fort Kochi for us was a choice made keeping in view our multiple priorities. We wanted a place that was not too crowded, had sufficient privacy, was spacious, clean, not too expensive, not too far from the beach, etc. We did not plan to stay indoors for too long, but we wanted a comfortable...

We had stayed at this hotel for a night. The buildind is good, location is also not bad. But the only thing they lack is professionalism. The owner George is not so familiar with the tourist destinations where we can visit. He is also not a good English speaker whcih makes a lot of confusion for a person like me... More

Staff is very kind and helpful. Rooms are super. Breakfast is tasty. The location is perfect. Fort Kochin can be reached on foot : fish market, kathakali center, Saint Francis church, .. There is nothing more to expect. I strongly recommend this homestay.

Located in Fort Kochi very close to the historic heart, this is a brand new place that is very well done up and kept clean and trim. The service is excellent and the family very friendly – overall, it’s a B&B that I’d recommend without reservations. Pros: (1) Service – Beyond expectations. The manager Mr. John noticed me wiping off... More

Elim is a very clean and modern new building which is a 10 minute walk from the main areas of Fort Cochin. The owner George and his family, and especially his assistant John are so helpful, warm and hospitable and brilliant communicators. There is a great breakfast and WiFi in the lobby, and A/C in the rooms, so it is... More

This new homestay is family owned and is like a luxury hotel compared to other offerings in its price range. There is Wi Fi, water, a shared communal kitchen (where the mother will happily make you chapati or chai) fans and multiple power outlets as well as a spacious rooftop from where you can get a good view of the...
