We spent two nights there. We got the place recomened, and It was one of the worst hotel I have ever been to. The place was quite expensive for what it was; the bathroom is all and dirty and the beds were not confortable. The sheets are way too dirty. One night we found cockroaches at our room, and the...

I was there for a couple of nights staying in one of the rooms out the back in the courtyard which was peaceful. the room was basic but clean and quite large. The staff were great and helped me to arrange my trip to Munnar. When... More

I received a genuine warm welcome upon arrival. The 360 year old, renovated Portuguese building is proudly kept by resident staff who have dutifully maintained this Fort Kochi home stay for many years. Spencer Home invites you to share a clean, quiet, safe and calming environment. The large traditional type rooms offer either A/C or ceiling fan to cool the... More

Through meeting the staff at Spencer Home, Madhu and Anil, they helped to make my time in Fort Kochi a magical experience. Madhu regularly makes singing meditations for guests and anyone who is interested to join. His character and feeling are of a passionate and loving person - you can feel this through his music. Sometimes you may hear a... More

I felt welcomed, at home, and particulary enjoyed the Raga-Meditation which one of the staff members, Madhu, offers daily. He also offers raga-singing lessons, which I enjoyed, and tabla-sessions. A bit pricy, regarding the fact that breakfast is only tea/coffee, toast and jam. W-lan also only available in lobby-area. But overall a pleasant stay!

The place is really clean, and quiet (something you don't find in many hotels in India). The rooms are nice and have everything you need, including a big mosquito net. The keeper of... More
