Great location in the middle of the touristy bit of town. Slightly dated but the warmth and genuinely helpful owner (Xavier) and his team made this a deserved review. Basic amenities provided alongside air conditioning and within five minutes walk from the coastline.

We had a miraculous stay in the Sonettas. The welcome was very kind, the rooms very clean and the Backwaters tour, which we booked at the hotel, well organised and in such a way, as we had fancied it. Our individual wishes were fulfilled flexibly and very friendly. The price-performance ratio was good and the breakfast was served very personally.... More

The hotel is centrally located, five minutes walking from the chinese nets and all other attractions. The room was clean and cosy. Wifi worked well. Staff was very friendly and helpful (they helped us organising backwater tour), and we were able to leave our luggage for a few days there.

This was a lovely immaculate little place with friendly staff - the owner has dedicated the place to his now deceased wife. We found staff helpful, with lovely clean room. The room was discounted as it wasn't the busy season - Fort Cochin is a nice place to have some time out of the business of India without honking horns... More

Uncle (the owner) is truly a sweetheart.. He gave us a warm welcome.. The cleanliness of the rooms is commendable.. Service is great. Staff were helpful and cordial. We were treated to yummy banana pancakes for breakfast in the morning.. Located right in the heart of fort Kochi.. And for the tariff they charge, this place is a steal..
