“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

There's a reason this hotel is mentioned in the Lonely Planet. It's really cosy and the owners try their best to make you feel at home! Next time I go to Kochi I will surely stay here again. I would recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Kochi

Good Karma is an absolute sanctuary in Fort Kochi!!! The house is so charming and a cozy place to drop the bags and relax for a long while. The room and attached bath was spotlessly clean, it is super quiet and peaceful, breakfast is good and plentiful, the location is a short stroll from all the action and Anoob is an awesome host. He accommodated my vegan diet, was always eager to help and give suggestions, and also fun to talk to. After travelling in India for over a month we hadn't come across such wonderful accommodation with a backpacker price; Good Karma exceeds expectations. It is truly an amazing place to call home for a few days.

I'd originally booked on the internet to stay 2 nights but ended up staying 5 as it is such a great place where I felt totally welcomed, comfortable and relaxed. Anoob was a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble for him, or any of his very helpful staff. He shared his advice and local knowledge willingly, enabling me to plan day trips and further travels to make the most of my time. The room itself was perfect, a great size with a lovely comfortable bed, TV, ensuite bathroom with complimentary toiletries, towels provided and most importantly was immaculately clean - the cleanest room I've witnessed in India! The location was great too, within walking distance of all the main attractions and good local restaurants. I will be coming back to stay again further in my travels as I definitely had the feeling that this is a home away from home experience. I highly recommend staying at Good Karma Inn for anyone coming to Fort Cochin.

Great price, friendly service and super clean and homely. Conveniently located in Fort Cochin. Close to the cultural center, which was very nice for the nightly trips to watch live Indian music. Also very close to the bus stop where you can take buses to anywhere in Kochi. Also near good restaurants and not that far from the water.

I booked the room through the internet - I chose this guest house based on the reviews it received on this site and I was not disappointed. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean. Breakfast was included and offered a choice of Western or Indian breakfast according to preference. l highly recommend this place for its location within Fort Cochin and the services provided.

Room Tip: Mattress on the bed needed an little extra thickness but otherwise everything was perfect.

Just spent seven nights and was very pleased with the room and location. Very helpful and friendly staff, room very clean and comfortable and it is within walking distance to most sights in fort Cochin. Would definitely stay at good karma again.

The area has lots to offer even in monsoon season. Good restaurants and beer serving bars which we were recommended by staff. XL shows sport and is a ten minute walk away, dosa and pancake and oceano are two restaurants we would recommend to eat at. Good food and reasonably priced and all close proximity from hotel.

My parents and I loved our stay in fort Cochin recently our reasons being
1) Anoob cancelled his other plans to leave the area for the rainy season just because we had booked
2) He is brilliant, funny, and knowledgable about the local area.. A great man to have a chat with
3) The bed, room and bathroom areas are exceptionally clean and comfortable
4) Breakfast is lovely
5) Tv and wifi work well
6) The location is quiet and convenient,

Choose this place if you are in Cochin, you won't regret it!!
