Chiramel Residency
Ranked #65 of 477 Kochi (Cochin) B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is excellent accommodation at an excellent price. This is a well-renovated classic home in dark, polished teak. We took the 'Heritage' option, with its large rooms and adjacent 'study', four-poster bed etc. situated on the same floor as the main heritage lounge and dining-room. All very nice. Bathroom provided hot water and showers, though I preferred the old bucket and scoop method - so satisfying pouring hot water over ones shoulders.....Courteous, on-time service. Helpful advice. Free wifi! This is a classy package. Ask for what you need.

Room Tip: Choose the Heritage option, for richness without the cost.

Lived here as a boy in school when it was just a private house my father rented. Had a well and cow shed in the back yard. Now the place has been renovated and restored to its former glory and upgraded with running water, fans, A/C and polished teak wood floors. Rooms are comfortable and the friendly owners Sunny and Asha personally take care of you.
A free breakfast is included in the price and WiFi (also free) is fast and signal is strong.
The receptionist Ben is a pleasant and helpful person always ready to help with tour reservations or any problems you may have.
It was wonderful to be back in the old neighborhood and I cannot wait to go back again.

Room Tip: Rooms are all quiet as the street is a quiet one.

Chiramel is positioned in a perfect spot, away from the noise of the restaurant streets, but next door to Dal Roti for delicious food, Fabindia and Anokhi for beautiful fabrics (these are the top two clothing stores in India, if you like colourful, high-quality, handcrafted items), and just round the corner from Oceanos, the best restaurant we visited in Kochi. The owner is quite reserved, but very charming and helpful. Our room was clean and cool. Strongly recommended.

Very interesting, 300 year old building. Lovely hardwood floors. Rooms vary in size. Excellent location - everything was within walking distance. Basic breakfast. Clean. Helpful with respect to making phone calls.

Room Tip: Asking to see rooms first might be a good idea.

We had a nice stay in the Residency. The building is truely beautiful and the owners nice and helpful. It is settled in wakling distance to the centre. The rooms are clean, but you have to order the daily cleaning and the breakfast for th next day.

Nice place to stay

Despite working in the service industry, the staff here refused to help my friend with a simple request that they could have easily accommodated at no cost to the hotel. My good friend needed internet access for only a few minutes in order to let folks back in the States know that he was alive and well. Even though we offered to pay, the staff refused to let my friend use the WiFi or their computer, and they were unwilling or unable to tell us where we might be able to find such a service.

Working in the service industry means helping tourists - unfortunately, this staff was unwilling to do so with us. Hopefully others in the future might have a better experience.
