The Inn is a stone's throw from the historic town center and also conveniently just off center. Facing a park where residents play cricket, baseball, and football, in the morning and evening, it does not have a tourist sensibility about it at all. A coffee shop, opening around 9 a.m., is quite literally next door. The rooms are basic fare,...

We originally booked 2 nights but after a few minutes in Fort Kochi and Kapitan's Inn we extended our stay. The ladies who run the place are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the location is superb - overlooking a huge pitch where boys play football and cricket, it's close to the beach, Santa Cruz and all...

I had booked the room over phone and with all great reviews on the internet I blindly went ahead to the place to see the rooms were not to my satisfaction. It was dark, AC was noisy and two of the rooms almost share a bath (a 7 ft wall to split the bathrooms) and a comment "who is going...

This man had booked 2 AC rooms over phone, he called thrice to confirm the rooms, and made us hold the room till 7 p.m. Finally he reached and started inspecting the room before checking-in and wanted to negotiate the price for 1 night’s stay. As alleged by him, we have no shared bathrooms and each room has its own...

We find this review funny. This gentleman had very decent breakfast with toast/butter/jam, omlettes and a pot of Tea for 2 persons x 3 days. But this couple can’t remember what they had as they were heavy boozers. They are an aged couple between 60 – 70 years of age. I still have his breakfast account in my book. 3...

We came late in the evening in high season and it was hard to find a room such spontainious as we are. It was the last room we could get. The prices are fair and the owners very helpful and friendly. First we wanted to stay just for one night, but on the next day we decided to stay longer....

Our experience of staying here was that it is a clean and friendly place with helpful staff who organised pick up from the airport. It is very close to the main attractions in Fort Cochin. We stayed in a 'cottage' which is actually a small block of 6 apartments behind the main house, they are safe though slightly cramped if...

This is a nice home stay in Fort Cochin. The rooms are clean and the owners are very helpful. It's in a good location and is walking distance to the Chinese fishing nets. There are good restaurants nearby. I would happily recommend staying here.

This is a nice place that serves a good breakfast, hot water, and a comfortable bed. The rooms are well equipped, and there are tables to sit at outside. The problem is three fold. (1) The lady isn't the friendliest I have met, there are few smiles here. (2) The room was tiny and has a cupboard screwed to the...

Thanks for the positive comments about the room and the breakfast. The guest has made this review in comparison with another property where he stayed before. The room which he selected in our property is much cheaper than the one he stayed in the other property. If he had chosen our rooms of the same price he would have enjoyed...

“First we asked for a standard room but it was rather small, then we changed for another big room so we could accomodate my teenager son and it was very comfortable and clean with AC too., it had a lot of space and small living room”

“We saw just our room, but I suppose an even better choice would be one upstairs, especially if one's going to visit Fort Cochi in monsoon time, as during a violent rainfall our room was for a while totally flooded - and that's in November, too.”
