“Must stay if in fort Cochin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Amazing accommodation! Great location, very central to everything and rickshaws are very easy to use from there. What makes this accommodation is the staff! Anoo is absolutely amazing so helpful with anything and everything and nothing is too much trouble. He booked all shows, daytrips and drivers for us at very short notice, and was very happy to do so. For what you pay facilities are excellent. Very nice and clean.

Wonderful stay at Good Karma - started our holiday here and came back to finish our last few days too. Decent sized rooms, clean and comfortable. Very central location but quiet safe area. Anu and brother did everything to make us welcome, were very helpful in arranging trips, car, further accommodation, in fact everything to make our time in Kerala very special. Thank you guys and may see you next year!

Where do I start!?! Anu, Jaleel and Shyam made me feel like family from the moment I arrived. They are so friendly and took care of me to make sure I had a truly "local" experience.
I was so lucky, as the first night I arrived was the final night of the elephant festival - the swirls of colours, music, food and excitement were awe inspiring! Jaleel even took me shopping in his tuktuk to buy fabric and then took me to his home where his lovely wife gave me a cooking lesson (she is an AMAZING chef!) and is sewing my new outfits! His adorable daughter gave me beautiful henna designs and his son is very cute too. And their pet goats and cats are lots of fun too. The guys are popular in town and are happy to recommend restaurants and massage locations where you are greeted as friends.

The inn itself has nice, clean facilities and I felt very safe. With their open hearts, generosity and warm smiles, Anu, Jaleel and Shyam have made my first trip to India one I will never forget. I hope I can come back again another day to visit my new friends.

Our first taste of Kerala at Fort Kochin was at the Good Karma, a home away from home. Simple, clean rooms each with bright accent wall, rooftop, homey dining room and most helpful staff to assist any time of day or evening with travel details or local knowledge. Good breakfast and excellent tea, even served outside of regular hours, (for those who attend morning yoga). Convenient neighbourhood, but on a quiet street. Good wifi in communal areas. Thank you for the hospitality and good humour.

Room Tip: Green room at from on second floor at front of Good Karma had good sound quality, and small balcony...

Good Karma is a perfect spot to stay in Kochi - All the important spots are within a few minutes walking distance. The accommodation itself is quiet, clean and offers all the amenities you expect in this price range. The owner of the accommodation is very kind and is offering a lot of help and recommendations for trips and can even organize some for you.

Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for the guy who runs this place! Helped us organise side trips, train tickets, everything. Lovely clean rooms, sheets & towels changed every other day and a choice of Indian breakfast or toast and eggs. My only complaints would be that the drains where a little slow and that extra lighting in the rooms would be helpful. Other than that, wonderful.
