Travelled to Alleppy in the 15th August 2014 long weekend. The location is its most advantageous point. Its very close from the YMCA junction. The Bamboo rooms were comfortable enough, a memorable experience, though may not be advisable during peak heat season.The first floor has a huge lounging area where you can unwind and relax. Our room was neat, clean... More

Alleppey will be memorable because of the stay in Ashamudi Homestay. The spacious lounging area on the first floor is the perfect space to relax. The rooms are nice and clean. A little mystery guest took away the soap and left footprints to give away! :) Uma is a perfect host and her tips about the city, the eating places... More

Rooms are ok but bathroom is not good at all. No water coming from toilet tap and no hanger in bathroom. Rooms and balcony are very nice and decorated. Bugs were falling from ceiling and bed is not comfortable for sleep

The charm of this hotel lies in the wonderful interior and the warmth of Subhash and his wife. The upstairs is a massive chill-spot with bamboo walls and big wooden doors with vintage locks on it. The service is the best I ever had in a hotel/stay. Subhash and his wife are two sincerely warm people who are always ready... More

The room itself is very basic, AC in ground floor was comfortable. Bathrooms were not great, dusty, water was very slow in tap. The boat house experience was awesome. Decent boathouse, courteous staff, good food.

Firstly, this place looked amazing. It is the one hotel room I remember the most vividly from my travels- unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. The staff are wonderful, and very accommodating. we asked about boat trips and were very reasonably priced compared to others along the backwaters. It seems it is very difficult to keep a bamboo room clean... More
