We stayed for one night, stopping over on our way to north Kerala. Sonnetta Residency was a very good place to stay: clean, comfortable and good value. The owner was helpful and breakfast was good. The location is perfect if you want to stay right in the thick of Fort Kochi, yet it manages to be quiet. Would recommend it...

After staying in many Guest Houses in India, our expectations were low. But the rooms here are tidy and have all the things you need. Location is the best and the breakfast that is served was excellent. Overall a great stay!

Very Good place, clean, simple and austere. Led by Mr.Xavier and his friendly, courteous staff, and at that price it is a virtual steal! The small breakfast room, close to being cramped almost, provides an excellent opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Nice place, my best wishes to Mr.Xavier and his able, efficient team!

This home stay locates on Princess street which is in the heart of Fort Cochin, the old town of Kochi. The owner, Mr. Xavier, is a very nice and faithful uncle. The room we had was clean and reasonable price. Don't expect something luxury. Highly recommend!!!!

I stayed at Sonetta Residency for one week in November 2016. It is a small and very charming hotel, with only five rooms, right in the middle of Fort Cochi, on the main tourist street. The staff is very friendly, starting by the owner, Mr Xavier, a former army engineer, who will go out of his way to make sure...
