“Clean and great staff”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Wish we could have stayed for more days. Very clean with great staff. Very helpful and the driver who took us around was a gentleman.. And they even gave us a discount. Will definetly go back. And this is the only place where people dont work for tips. Keep up the great attitude.

Amazing, honest, caring staff (Hari is the man). Clean, nice spacious rooms. Great area. Great food. Great wifi. I couldn't fault it. Central to all the main shopping areas.
Thanks for making our time in Kochin :-)

Room Tip: Use these guys for booking tours/shows. They don't hike the prices and you get preferential time...

This place was a delight to stay at.Clean and friendly,and very central.We had a large room with a balcony.A nice Breakfast is on the terrace roof.The manager, Hari, was very helpful and pleasant to deal with.I would go back there any time.We paid 1000rp in peak season.But someone else had got a room for 600,so I think it is very negotiable.They do airport pickups.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor have the best view,but they all seem quite good

We met a holidaying Auto driver on a railway station in Coimbatore who recommended this place - so glad we took his advice! After some initial confusion (locals pronounce this place as in "orient" but without the "t") so we thought we were at the wrong place when we arrived. There are two guest-stays with more or less the same name but either would do fine. Ours was the one in K.L. Bernard Master Road, Njallparambu Junction, Fort Kochi (just around the corner from 'the other one'. Gee this is a nice place, effectively someone's (P.T. Varghese) home but with 4 (four) rooms available. If you are lucky you will be able to stay here - the people who run this home-stay are all lovely and very helpful. Ask them to arrange a visit to the Kerala Kathakali Centre for a performance - a highlight for me. There is quite a lot to see in Cochin & Ernakalam but it is still a relaxing spot after the general mayhem of much of India. No burnt out Hippies as in Goa either so a top spot for grown-ups!

Room Tip: There are only 4 so ant of them will be fine.

We stayed at the skywings it was very clean with good sized rooms and bathrooms including balcony at a very reasonable price. The manager was very friendly and helpful helping book trips for us at the same cost if not less than some of the other tour operators. It was close enough to the centre to be a convenient walking distance without being in the centre which could be a bit noisy and cramped. I would definately stay here again.

In a quiet street but near to everything (beach, churches, chinese fishing nets, cultural center), we had a great time in orion homestay. Extremely friendly family who kindly organise backwater trips and many other things ; clean and comfortable rooms (some with balcony), hot water (and bathtub!), cooling fan or A/C, and all this at a low price. Absolutely no negative points.

Room Tip: room with balcony is nice
