What a lovely little gem this place is! Eric is a wonderful kind and friendly host, the rooms are clean and comfortable and very good price. Eric has lots of useful information and helped us book a trek and a tour and arranged buses and taxis. Great location, only 30 rupees to the main town centre. Highly recommend.

What a gem for the price. We moved to jj cottage after a horrible 1st night in Munnar at a place called noah's ark Inn. We were lucky to get a room here and it was lovely. The owner is very nice and helpful, he organised a fantastic soft trek for us and the room although basic was spotlessly clean... More

The place was really great and we enjoyed the warm welcome of the owners. The rooms are basic, yet comfortable. The owner was really helpful and organized a one-day trek for us. The trek was great and the guide was super nice. He took us through the hills and the tea plantations. We had an amazing breakfast on the hills,... More

Clean, friendly and convenient place to stay in Munnar. Also helped me organise a trek and a day sight seeing. The trek was the best thing I've done in Kerala - ask for Velu, he's the man. Only minor quibble was the place they recommended me when I went on to Kumily (Jungle paradiso) which is dirty and out of... More

I was recommended to stay here by a friend and am glad I took the advice. My room is spacious and clean, with a huge, comfortable bed and a private bathroom. There's only a small seating area to meet people and to get out of your room - that is my only issue, that there isn't a real "communal area".... More

This is an excellent place to stay in Munnar. I had a small double room (I was travelling alone), which was spotlessly clean, had a comfortable bed, hot water, TV with foreign channels and a delicious breakfast (though I can't remember if it was included or not). The rate is incredibly reasonable. What made the place even better was staff... More

Tucked away just off the Munnar-Kochi Road, the hotel is in a quiet corner of the old town. With views across the Munnar Stadium to the tea slopes beyond, the Hotel is 2 minutes walk from the KSRTC bus depot, easy access if traveling to or from the coast by bus.

Location: Good location, it's very close to Munnar centre  (a rickshaw takes you there for 30 rs), also very close to the beautiful Munnar mountains and lastly, close to a bus station with busses to Kochin.

I scheduled 3 nights in Munnar and finally I stayed totally a week here. Apart from the beauty of Munnar, a good accomodation is a big plus. JJ Cottage is located at old Munnar near KSRTC bus stop, this area is much better than Munnar town, much more quiet and not so chaotic. The room is just so good, with... More
