“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

The guest house is warm, in good location and the owner will make sure you are having a great time! Highly recommended, nice clean rooms in a good price and very good service. On the same street you'll find restorants, Internet and book stores.

A great value guesthouse right in the centre of Fort Cochin. The single room I stayed in was small and basic but immaculately clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. I went on the full day Backwaters cruise that they offer and found it to be very enjoyable and well run. The chill out area is a nice touch and a pleasant place to relax and meet fellow travelers.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights and we loved it. The manager, Freddy, is a great guy and all the staff were very friendly. We had a basic room in the upstairs lounge area and it cost 600 or 700 rupees....can't remember exactly. It's in a superb location where you can walk to nearly all the main tourist spots.I would definitely stay here if I was going back to Cochin.

Room Tip: Try and book a room with a roadside view.

The rooms are basic but very fairly priced. Location is great, close to all sights and attractions, they can arrange day trips from reception for you and overall we really enjoyed our stay.

We came upon Princess Inn whilst wandering down Princess St. It was the best place we saw in our price range so we decided to stay.

The first night we had a room at the back (600R) with window facing a kind of lounge area where there were tables & chairs and books you could swap. The room was basic but acceptable.

For the second night we moved to a room at the front (700R) with a big window facing the street. This was a little cooler with more air circulation (not that the first night was that bad.)

The staff were great. Friendly, chatty and helpful. One in particular gave us lots of info about a local festival that was happening at the time.

The location is very good, right in the heart of the action (not that this is a party town so street noise shouldn't be much of a problem.)

I would recommend eating at The Teapot. They did an excellent fish curry and one of the best western style breakfasts (eggs, good bread, baked beans, fruit, coffee etc) I've had in India. Also check out the shop down the road (I forget the name) with lots of Indian themed designer souvenirs. Very cool.

Stayed a couple of nights and really felt at home there. Loved the common area. Freddy the manager is helpful and friendly. My train out of Kochi didn't leave until evening and Freddy offered the day use of a smaller room, with bathroom at a great rate. It was very helpful, as I was able to shower before getting on the overnight train . I paid 600 rps/night and 200 rps for the day use.

We think the staff (Freddy) of the Princess Inn, is one of the most friendly and helpful we experienced in India, without being pushy to do things or go places you really don't like! All his tips about Fort Cochin were helpful and good and we really enjoyed staying there!
