This is my second visit to Lazar Homestay and again it was extremely impressive. My room had a lounge and dinner table. The shower was hot and the bed extremely comfortable. The hosts are wonderful and supplied me with a delicious breakfast. It is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Fort Kochi. If I return to Fort Kochi... More

I was in lazar residency one month while I was working in fort cochin. They are a wonderful family and I felt like home. Nice place, and nice room with a/c and living with kitchen. I can recommend this home-stay 100%. See you soon Joy, Jeissy, David and Anju!!

They helped with my arrival and departure from the airport and provided whatever local informatIon I required. The meticulously prepared Keralan breakfasts were outstanding, the best I had during my three plus weeks in... More

It is a really homely place run by most helpful Indian couple. It is situated in a little street so we had a problem to find it but apart from that its location was ideal for us: calm but very central, within short walking distance to main Fort Kochi attractions: Saint Francis (or Vasco da Gama) church, Chinese Fishing Nets,...

For the second time we stayed in Lazar Residency. Joy and Jaicy and their kids made our stay most comfortable, we again felt very welcoming and it was just great. They offer nice and clean rooms, guests have also a kitchen which they can use. Breakfast which they offered was the best we had in all our time in India.... More

Joy was helpful from the very beginning when I booked my room. He replied instantly to messages and booked my airport pick up, which was a reasonable price and went smoothly. The home stay is in a lovely, quiet location but within walking distance (5-10 minutes) to the Chinese Fishing nets and Fort Cochin town centre. I felt very comfortable... More

Joy and Jaycee are the perfect hosts, and are always available to help with local info/tips. Their place is very clean, and is in an ideal location, just a few minutes walk from all the main sights and attractions. The local Kathakali is a must see, and they can also recommend a brilliant boat tour through the backwaters. We loved... More
