Fairly clean rooms and decent linen ,the aircon... More

If you are looking for something peaceful, out of the city hustle and bustle elphinstone is to look out for. In one word peaceful. Good food and they also have sheesha :). I'd definitely suggest my friends and folks coming down to cochin if they are looking at a decent budget and good homely stay.

We went there on very high expectations as per TripAdvisor reviews. Hospitality is just fine. A few rooms have leaking ceiling.. Please check before taking the room. Plus DO NOT trust the management for taxi booking. We were cheated in terms of price/English speaking driver/places to be covered.

Dear Guest, We are extremely sorry for the issues you have faced during your stay. Please find the explanation, As our hotel is almost more than 200 years old heritage property, the roof tiles needs regular maintenance, the leakage can be found out only when it rains, and the leakage will only be a few drops. And we have done... More
