“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend this home stay to absolutely anyone wanting to stay in fort kochi.
Saj himself and his daughter are the most welcome and knowledgeable people. They made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. They suggested several things for us to do and places for us to eat at whilst we stayed there.
We stayed there for two nights ( I wish it was longer) and the breakfast we enjoyed with them on those two mornings was the best we had experienced during our stay in India (3 and a half weeks in total). The lassis in particular were delicious!
The room was spotless and very comfortable. My friend and I stayed in an air conditioned double room with a wee balcony which we used to dry off some of our soaking clothes!
I would like to thank saj home for our wonderful time there and also recommend this highly to anyone going to fort kochi!

I was in Kochi for 2 days. Stayed over at Sajhome for one night before having to catch my flight at night on the next day. Lovely, neat rooms, and Saj was really friendly. He recommended my travel companions and I explore Fort Kochi by foot instead of getting conned by the taxi or auto drivers. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, as we had a taste of authentic Keralan cuisine with a huge platter of fruits and home-made mango juice. Saj also allowed us the use of an extra room on the second day, after we checked out, to store our luggage before we headed off for the airport at night. All in all, a lovely stay with lovely people. Location is good too, as most attractions are within walking distance.

A very clean place to stay in Cochin . Choice of local or continental breakfast. Fruit juices are very good. Saj will organise airport transportation and also give you ideas and tips for your trip. Be prepared to be flexible if travelling in the monsoon due to floods and land slides. Saj will also organise a driver for you to go to places or book the train. Trains are a great way to travel but not easy to board as the destination of the train is at the end of the train. The carriage numbers also do not match the carriage numbers on the platform. A/C tend to be in the middle or the end. I would recommend friends to stay here if looking for budget accommodation.
Note did not get best exchange rate at place below home stay plenty of other places to change currency.

I really enjoyed my stay at Sajhome. Saj was happy to give a great deal of recommendations and to answer all of our questions. His wife made a couple incredible breakfasts for us and his daughter helped out too. We went during the rainy season and the WIFI was briefly down. When we alerted Saj he immediately addressed the issue and it was back up the next day. He offered to let us use his computer while the WIFI was not available and that was very helpful. The accommodation itself was clean and comfortable. It was evident that the family wanted to ensure that all of their guests had a great stay in Fort Kochi and from what I see on Tripadvisor and from my own experience there, they are quite successful. The location was great as well- there was plenty to do close by and it was about 7 minutes walking from the ferry terminal that left to the main land. It was also conveniently situated above an ATM. I highly recommend Sajhome.

Sajhome is a lovely place to stay in Kochi. Mr. Saj is very helpful and accommodating and he will give you excellent advice on where to go and what to see. His place is centrally located and it is very easy to see Fort Kochi from there. There's an ATM right downstairs so that was convenient too. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and clean and had a lovely little private balcony. The breakfast was also great and I loved the fresh Mango juice in the morning. Mr. Saj was also kind enough to store a suitcase for us while we traveled and sent it to the last hotel we stayed in through a reliable auto driver. Overall we had a great time and highly recommend Sajhome.

All I can say is read through the fantastic reviews below this! Our stay was equally as good. We were provided with excellent guidance and advice as to where to visit in Fort Cochin, to the point where we left and a driver was arranged to take us to Alleppey.
