Silverweed Homestay
Ranked #62 of 451 Kochi (Cochin) B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 28, 2012

A truly beautiful homestay with the perfect host and his lovely family. The room was well-lite, and the bathroom is just amazingly big and clean. The homestay has a beautiful veranda, surrounded by lovely plants, a truly relaxing place to hang out. Food is the best I have had in Cochin, all homemade and tailored to my needs of no spicy food. Will definitely come back and stay in Silverweed again.

My wife and I stayed in Silverweed for 5 nights and would highly recommend a stay at this property. The room was VERY clean, the bed large and very comfortable with clean linens, and the bathroom is one of the largest and cleanest bathrooms you'll ever find in India. The AC was very cool, a ceiling fan, and even provided a mosquito net to avoid any annoyances in the night. But aside from the room being perfect it all pales in comparison to the host's mother's cooking. Waking up to her breakfast was a treat like nothing else. Her food was by far the best we've had in all India. You can get lunch or dinner prepared if you wish for a bit extra, which I highly recommend you do. Oh and the location is very good, just right around the corner from the main tourist parts, but off the road slightly so you don't hear honking all night. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Only con is the WIFI is a bit iffy, but I think that's more of a Kochi issue than a silverweed issue.

Oh and the host was extremely knowledgeable of the area and helped us get around and even arranged an amazing backwater tour for us. Many of the tours are jammed, but the one he booked for us had less people and was much more leisurely.

Room Tip: Only two rooms and as far as I can tell they are both excellent and basically the same.

The calm surrounding, green environment ,soothing atmosphere ,offered the right place I was looking for a calm and peaceful stay.The cleanest rooms are spacious and wonderfully done up offering best hotel facilities. The balcony garden is too beautiful offering the best sight one can get as you step out of the room.The Kerala food we had in "Silverweed" tasted the best ever we had.The homely atmosphere is provided by the hosts in all their behaviour and one never feels away from home. The rates too are very friendly and down to earth compared to the quality and services provided.Well done Mr Krishnakumar .Very strongly recommended for everyone.

It was a very pleasant and homely stay at the Silver weeds. Food was Indian, was delicious and not very spicy, suiting to the western palate. Rooms were comfortable and very relaxing....The balcony was endowed with lovely plants.... Added with their warm hospitality that made our stay altogether a very comfortable and homely.....!! Keep it up....wish to see you next time...!!

Hotel quality in a home stay! Attention to detail is evident, fluffy hand towels, mini soaps, night lights, mozzie nets over the bed & cable TV. Large size rooms & a bathroom better than home. AC was not required as rooms were breezy or you can relax on the balcony. Krishnakumar is knowledgeable, friendly & his past hotel experience is evident. His mother cooks a different restaurant quality traditional dish every morning & invite you to join them for tea. He could charge more for such a quality stay but wants Silverweed to remain as a relaxed friendly stay. I would make Kochin a stop over when travelling again, just so that I can stay here. Wifi connection is a bit unpredictable at times. Short 10 min walk into the hustle a bustle means you can view how the locals live on your walk. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.!!

Room Tip: Only two rooms, get in fast or you will miss out!

We felt so lucky to begin our trip to Kerala at SilverweedHomestay. The welcome was warm & friendly and the rooms were neat & clean. I felt comfortable from day one. The delicious Indian food was ideal for the average western taste but they are happy to adjust it to individual taste. I would warmly recommend this homestay to all.

Room Tip: the two twin rooms were pretty much the same so either would be fine
