“Totally ok but run-down”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Really kind and helpfull stuff - good people. The hotel itself is a little run-down but ok. The room was a little naked, like most indian tourists seem to prefer. There were a lot of mosquitoes in the (non-AC) room, so we had to hang our own mosquito-net above the bed. The shower has sprinkled the whole bathroom but only few on the person who wanted to shower.

We stayed here for one night with another couple. Good layout and nicely decorated, with two communal areas. Bedroom and bathroom are OK and have that backpacker vibe.
The residency is located on the main road about a 5 minute stroll to the fishing nets and restaurants.
Room gets very hot.
We organised a backwater stay through the manager and were very pleased with what we got for our money.

I stayed here at Paddikal for two nights, cause where I was staying was booked for the nights to come. I was surprised to find that as night at Padikkal cost me twice as less than where I stayed previously.
Sushil is an amazing manager,got me tickets for a backwater tour and traditional dance,and the staff here are very friendly. The room was pretty neat considering I was staying alone. Highly reccommend to all budget travelers going to Ft Kochi.
thanks Sushil for the pleasant stay.

We recently stayed here 8 nights and it was perfect! Love the staff, who were always so friendly and incredibly helpful. Every morning Ajish, who was running the hotel while we were there would ask us our plans for the day, and offering suggestions, advice, etc.. He is one of the coolest guesthouse managers we've met. Nothing was ever a problem!! The guesthouse, located in Fort Cochin has an instant warm, relaxing and homely feel to it as soon as you walk in through the large front entrance. The location is ideal, within short walking distance to everything, but also extremely well priced. The restaurant is great, and although we like to try different places to eat, we always had breakfast at Padikkal, and often came back for evening meals also. Loved it - and would highly recommend as an awesome place to stay.

Happy, helpful staff went the extra mile to of service with all sorts of advice for our trip. They made bookings on our behalf, acting only on our approval, and took a lot of the hassle out of getting around and experiencing the Kochi area, which can be quite bewildering for a first-timer. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing was too expensive for our budget. Don't get your hopes up about the cleanliness of the area as a whole, it is quite grotty, but the rooms and the food at Padikkal Residency were perfectly fine. It comes highly recommended.

This home stay in the middle of Fort Cochin is fantastic. Location is excellent - Chinese fishing nets are a 5-10 minute walk away and there are plenty of nice looking restaurants right on the doorstep but we never ate at them because the food at Padikkal is so good & well priced we couldn't resist eating there every night. We were supposed to stay 2 days but stayed 4 and if we didn't have travelling to do we could have stayed much longer. The owner, Sushil organised a trip on the backwaters and really helped us with our onward travel plans, even booking a train for us that we needed a few days after we left. The rooms are clean & spacious, we had non AC but the fan was more than sufficient even on hot days. Sushil is a really cool guy & we could talk to him for hours, he even gave us a lift to a bar we wanted to go to. I can't recommend this place enough, there is no reason not to stay here.
