A home away from home place. From the exterior to the interior, it was a comfortable place. Very good breakfast made by Varghese. Very well situated for the tourist attractions. The Chinese fishing nets, restaurants, shopping etc etc.

This place in Fort Kochi is a beautiful palace with clean rooms and very friendly staff! Walking distance to shopping, cafes, restaurants and the fishing nets. We stayed here only for one night, but could easily have stayed longer. Friendly staff very willing to help you if you need it. Breakfast is ok, continental with omelette, toast, coffee and tea....

Unable to get a room at Saj, we were referred to the Chack Inn (as it's affectionately called). I'm glad we were! This place is beautiful but in an ironic way. The house and garden are built in faux High Baroque style. Big white columns, Palladian windows, and a giant goose/swan fountain dominating the entryway. All this centrally located in...

This homestay has 8 rooms on two floors in a large building in central Fort Kochi. There is an attractive garden in front. Our room was on the first floor, with a bath attached. The room had an airconditioner which worked when there was power. There is free wifi but you may need to go to a central place to...

We didn't get a place in Sajhome next door, but Saj recommended this place to us. We don't regret it, it was great. Sonia was very helpful and organized trips for us to Munnar and the backwaters in Alleppey. The room was very clean and the house looks great from the outside. We felt like home and would definitely come...

We booked in here when saj home was full. We didn't really know what to expect but saj recommended it and we decided to trust him. Sonia was very helpful with all bookings for tours and taxis and directing us where to go. The place is walking distance to everywhere including jewtown. The rooms are sparse and quite workable.

We stayed here when we couldn't get in to Sajhome next door. The hotel is nice enough. The outside is amazing and the verandah upstairs is a nice place to have breakfast in the morning. Rooms are fairly basic but spacious. Good shower. Beds are very hard but that's the norm in India. Location is very good. Not right in...

We initially had some language barriers while trying to book a room but the place came highly recommended so we made an effort to book through a friend from Kochin. We later received a call from Sonia, the manager who spoke English. When booking a room, its best to call during office hours for an English speaker. Room rates vary...
