“Homely Stay @ Kochi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I traveled in Oct'12 with my family., very good & pleasant place to relax..!

Rooms are comfortable & cozy., out of 3 rooms where we stayed, one of the room (# 9) has AC water dripping on bed, as we stayed for single nite, we felt not to bother Mr.Leslie & family..!, so we switched off the AC :)

Only the hitch is besides good breakfast they don't provide any food., we need to depend on nearby restaurants., oceanos on beach side else there are good & small restaurants at queens street ., watching restaurants & stores for a moment I felt like I'm in goa..all are at walkable distance..which is a definitely a plus staying here..!

Mr.Leslie thanks a lot for wonderful breakfast., we all enjoyed it..! also I recommend please help ALL your guests with cab service..!

We had a pleasant stay in this hostel.
Ok, the windows and the terrasses should be cleaned more often, but we stay in India and such complaints would be a little over-criticized.
What counts are the clean rooms, spacious bathrooms, the warmly well come of Leslie and his family. He organized the pick-up at the airport as well and all his hints were useful.
The homestay is a 5 minutes walk away from the center, near Oceanous restaurant were we got good meals a well.
Happy greetings to Leslie, who is since two months grandfather of two lovely girls.

Stopped here during our cycle trip to tropical India and Kerala, I immediately felt 'at home', the hosts are warm and welcoming and the gardens serene and peaceful, the rooms clean and comfortable. Also the breakfast really was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel to any travelers to Fort Cochin.

Room Tip: From what I can gather all rooms are good

The charming and very kind owners Ann and Leslie work very hard to ensure that you receive a warm welcome and enjoy your stay in their lovely boutique hotel. Pleasantly located within easy walking distance of many of Fort Cochi's popular attractions and some good restaurants and useful shopping. Our room on the first floor had a large balcony overlooking a well kept and interesting small garden. The room was clean and comfortable with A/C and free wi-fi. A few minor creature comforts such as a shelf in the bathroom for toiletries and more accessible bedside lights would make the room even better. Hot water is supplied to the bath/shower.
The included breakfast served in the garden dining area was excellent , with especially good caffetiere coffee.
Overall a very good choice for a pleasant stay in Cochi with family atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We were travelling to Kochi only for 2 days but those days were divided in between the itenary to visit other places. Leslie was helpfull enough to offer us to keep our bag there while we travel to other places. Thats good customer service. Ann's is a very cozy and comfortable bed and breakfast located in Fort Kochi around the Market (Just 10 mins Walk) and at a very peaceful neighbourhood. The Beds were comfortable and breakfast was good as well. Allthough the bathrooms could get a little makeover as the tiles are taking a tolll and the fixtures can be replaced with new ones. Please remember to carry some mosquito repelent as well. Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Room with the Balcony facing the Garden area

Me and my newly wedded Husband have been planning to go to India for some time now.
So we decided to go to Fort Cochin for our honeymoon as we had heard some amazing and wonderful stories about the area.

It was a very long and tiresome flight, all we wanted to do was find a hotel and get a good nights sleep. A friend of ours had stayed at Ann's on a business trip in Cochin a few months prior and told us about it. So we finally made our way to Ann's. Upon arrival there's a lovely lush green garden which is very warming to see. We were greeted by Mr Leslie, the manager of Ann's. They took our suitcases for us and arranged them to be taken to our rooms and got us checked in as quick as possible.

The room was breath taking, very clean and comfortable. especially the bed which is just what we needed after a long journey. The bathroom was exquisite with a lovely sized bath tub where I could just relax.

The breakfasts were delicious and cooked to a 5 star expectancy. We also got to sneak a couple of seconds from the Chef; ;)

The best part about staying at Ann's was the helpful and useful advise that the staff had to offer us. We wanted to go out for a meal to celebrate our first day as a married couple, and they suggested so many places we were spoiled for choice.

We will definitely come back to Ann's in the near future. Cochin is a charming area with lots to offer.

Thank you so much Mr Leslie and all the staff members at Ann's for a never to be forgotten experience.
