We traveled in Oct Nov-12 with family of 7 ppl including small kid to elders ..Our stay to Ann's was at the starting of our Kerala tour and really it was a great start ! Their rooms,bathrooms and balconies everything was very comfortable. We can relax ourselves after a long journey very nicely. My son was very happy after seeing all birds ,n fishes at the entrance. Owner Mr. Leisley was very helpful and friendly. Even though at the time of our stay they both were very busy with their newborn granddaughters and also all their servants were on leave we never felt ignored. Even his cook was not their still he himself made delicious breakfast for our family ...
Its location at the heart of Fort Cochi is very accessible to all nearby areas such as beach, restaurants, shopping etc.

An excellent B&B. Rooms are very good: spacious with big bed, big chair, balcony. Good breakfast as well. very children-friendly. Very friendly and helpful owner. Rooms out the front quite noisy if not using the A/C.

Ann's was one of the very best hotels from my month in India. I loved the old-world charm of the room - the furniture and window looking onto greenery made it such a comfortable feeling. The manager helped us out with good dinner and bar suggestions. Breakfast was great. Would be good if we could get a beer at the residency, but they don't sell alcohol there - but I understand that alcohol licences are very expensive for businesses to obtain in Cochin. Another small downer was so many mosquitos in the front courtyard/reception area - there are a lot in the whole city but I think Ann's could have less if there weren't fish ponds in the courtyard/many many more mozzie-deterrent candles etc. Ann's was also a very short walk to some great restaurants and bars, but situated in a very quiet setting.

Room Tip: My room was the least expensive, but lovely - - but some rooms had balconies, big bathtubs, TVs and...

Great location, helpful and friendly staff, Ann's Residency is a perfect option considering value for money. Good breakfast and coffee in a nice setting, surrounded by birds and other animals. The period Dutch house transports you to the era of glory of Fort Kochi.

Stayed at Anns after reading reviews on Trip advisor. Loved the soothing decor and graceful elegance .
run by a warm and friendly couple, who goes the extra limit to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast served in the open area is very large and yummy and supervised by the host. The staff at the restaurant are very obliging and smiling. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The place is very close to all the touristic areas and in a great location away from the madding crowd.there is a beautiful well kept garden with birds and fishes which add to the beauty. Would definitely visit again

Room Tip: the corner room on othe south side was very quet

This was our first visit to Kochi. Our stay at Ann’s residency was very nice. It was a home away from home, Leslie and his staff really made our stay very comfortable, arranged a very good driver to pick us up from the airport. We stayed in room no 10 and it was very clean, cozy and comfortable. The food served at the restaurant was delicious. The hotel is very quiet and at an easy walking distance to many tourist attractions and services in Fort Cochin. We will definitely come back to Ann’s Residency !!
