This is a brilliant homestay. We stayed one night then headed off on their boat trip over night. While everyone at the pier was trying to rip us off, this family offered fair and honest prices and we had a fantastic time. While the boat itself isn't the most stunning on the water, we discovered its not about what the... More

We arrived at the homestay late in the evening. But the reception was prompt & we were straight away shown our room. Tourists do frequent this place, as the auto-drivers are well aware of this location. We got all possible help & information from the owners. Would recommend this for people who want to stay for 1 - 2 days.... More

A historic building centrally located in downtown Alleppey. It's easy to hop on a Tuk Tuk and be at the beach for a nice sunset walk or shopping. However, in our experience, management is a bit cryptic. Although It was not busy during our stay, somehow we felt rushed to make snap decisions with inconsistent information. We asked to have...

We booked 2 nights with aircon beginning of March. We did put up a mosquito net, so had no problems sleeping. Bed was comfertable. The owners were helpful, and very pleasant. The email communication was excellent. The balcony upstairs was a nice place to sit and read. There was Mosquitos in the evenings, but this is to be expected in... More

We stayed one night and it was our worst night in India. The house is in a crowded ally by the canal, a severely mosquito infested area. The Bamboo room was hot, and did not have any way to let air circulate in, without opening the screen-less windows to also let the bugs in. The bugs could all get in... More

We would normally let our taxi driver recommend a place to stay but as he was unavailable I turned to Trip Advisor, our first enquiries to listed hotels could not accommodate us, not unusual as we only needed a one night stay. On contacting Ashtamudi Homestay the communications were excellent vie e-mail and phone and guided by the excellent reviews... More

I stayed in this homestay for 1 night in Feb 2014. The place is located in a narrow lane after YMCA in Allepey town. The place is very narrow and hardly enough to fit a taxi. During check-in our taxi driver somehow managed to get into the lane as we had luggage, but later in the evening, he dropped us... More

I and my wife stayed at Ashtamudi homestay in February. It is a very well maintained homestay by Uma and Subash. The couple is very hardworking and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. Bamboo rooms are indeed novel, we liked them too. Breakfast cooked by Uma was very delicious. Her management is excellent. Also, we had gone for overnight houseboat... More

I came to Alappuzha after my Ernakukula, Munnar & Thekkaddy visit.The season was hot and I was cool down by A Bottle of Chilled water. I felt as if I have came to some one who is Kith and keen to us.

A nice house at a good location, but the best Uma and Subash! It was a real pleasure to meet them. From Uma we received all the tourist help we needed, from checking prices for rickshaw, hiring a boat, buying train tickets and even preparing for us a farewell Indian tea at 6:00 in the morning before our departure!
