Illam is one of the Best & Excellent Home stay in Cochin. It is a calm area in the center of Cochin city. Marine drive, Cochin Market, Fort Kochi, Airport, Mattanchery, North and South Railway stations are near by the illam.
Mr.Munaff & Seema will provide an excellent hospitality for you.......
You must eat Umma's (Seema's mother) special tasty foods, especially the Appam & Stew, Biriyani & Chappathy and Chicken curry.
You can feel as you stay with your family.

although the price is a little steep this is a good choice if you have one or 2 nights in Kochi. It's conveniently located between the train and bus station and the boat jetty, and being tucked off the road just enough to have some quiet.
The room was clean and big, although no hot water or wifi. The hotel is well-decorated and the staff very friendly and helpful. Worth checking out.
