The hotel is really well located near the famous Spanish Fish Nets in Fort Cochi. It is also walking distance from really nice restaurang and other interesting venues for tourists. The rooms were basic but clean with a functionin AC. The staff in the hotel were really friendly. Breakfast on the roof top restaurang was nice and good atmosphere. Would stay again.

We were hoping to stay at Leelu homestay but as they were fully booked, we were taken to the host's cousin's place, Hotel White Rose. We were in Fort Cochin for 3 nights but only stayed in this hotel for the first, as we didn't really feel at home there. Here's what you need to know if you are thinking about staying at this hotel:-

Hotel White Rose is a 5 minute walk away from the main shopping area and also the Chinese fishing nets so you can see most things without having to tackle the rickshaws (and thus avoid being taken to the tourist shops en route).

The rooms. They are okay but nothing special. The marble floors are nice, but the white walls could do with a touch up as they were quite drab. We had an AC room on the first floor and although it was functional (the only place that we stayed min that had a fridge), it lacked soul/personality and was very boxey. The bathroom door wouldn't lock and the sink leaked.

This is an odd place to review. There wasn't really anything “wrong” with it, but it wasn't a nice place to stay and it didn't really represent value for money. The staff were there, but didn't really interact with us except when they asked us to sign in/out. It was all a bit underwhelming…

This nice little hotel was a little off the beaten track (5 minutes) But was well presented, clean, had exceptional service and was great value for money. The only negatives were no hot shower (there is a hot tap though), we had to request clean towels and sheets and someone shouting quite loudly (it's on a residential street, so I assume a neighbour performing some ritual?) at 7.30am each morning. Overwise we really enjoyed the experience!

We have stayed at the white rose after a disappointing expierence with an accommodation advised in Lonely Planet. In december 2010 the hotel had just opened and cost was 1200rupies per night (20€) which is an indian middle rate price, for this hotel a good price though: friendly and helpful staff (we have been very ill and they helped us a lot) with good service (cheap clothes washing e.g.), good food, absolutely clean.
Thank you for everything, we would always come back!

Rooms clean and staff friendly and helpful. Room cleaning and fresh towels provided but have to be requested. However, now no restaurant facilities other than limited breakfast. Biggest downside is that bathrooms do not have hot water showers which is tolerable in the afternoon but bracing in the morning!

Room Tip: A couple of rooms have baths with a hand held hot mixer tap.

a lovely and welcoming place, we stayed twice ! A quiet location,yet in the heart of town. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would recomend the place to families and single travelers happily. We could also keep our room well in to the afternoon at no extra charge ! All in all a place I will be happy to come back to again and again!
