This is great value! The small hotel is a few minutes walk to the ferry, bus station, great restaurants (try Thaff -ask owner where it is). The beach is quite a hike - about 3-4 k's. I walked there and caught a tuk tuk back for 50Rs. I'm not much of a swimmer but the life guard said it's the safest beach in Southern India. There aren't any tourist facilities at the beach, unlike almost anywhere else in the world, which makes it kind of special.
The internet works super fast, but perhaps because I'm directly behind the server. My room for 400Rs is plenty big enough. It's clean with really comfy beds AND pillows - what a refreshing change. There is sufficient to make yourself comfortable and a little extra, with towels provided. The bathroom is squeaky clean, has cold water, which is fine in this weather.
The hotel is family owed and they are so attentive. All my questions were answered, and they are happy to sit and chat.
All in all, a great budget hotel in a great location. I think one day in Alleppey is enough - just to get your bearings and decide on the next leg of your trip.
Oh, my tuk tuk driver found this place difficult to find. The Palmy Regency is just off Finishing Point Road, with the lane way opposite the foot bridge that leads to the ferry terminal.
