We had a wonderful time at Phil's. Edward was very accommodating to our every need, and our room was very large and comfortable. Overall it was a great value for the money. The location is great too, an easy walk to the beach and many tourist and shopping attractions.

Phils' Residence is in a greatlocation ... close to the action but down a quiet residential lane. We arrived after a series of good but basic accommodation. We walked in the door and knew we would have difficulty leaving! Here's what we got for a reasonable rate: a one bedroom suite including living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom, balcony, a light filled space, immaculately cleanliness, new furnishings and environment, A+ service. The picture on the Trip Advisory website makes the hotel look a bit glitzy but not so; it has been a perfect stay.

Phils' Residency deserves five stars alone for their friendlyness and open arms for us. Our initial hotel decided not to accept us right before our arrival and the management of Phils' Residency was utmost helpful in providing us a place to sleep after a long journey.
They arranged an airport pickup on our request from the Kochi domestic terminal which brought us to the very nice hotel, which is very close to the Fort.
It is a bit of a home-stay style hotel, in which our 'room' was more of a tiny apartment. Thus we were provided not only with a comfortable bed and bathroom, but also a living area and a small kitchen-esque area, which were all perfectly clean. The bedroom is air-conditioned which was very much welcome! The overall interior is very simple and clean in style, modern as you could call it, which very much appealed to us.
The staff was utmost helpful and friendly and their breakfast may not be elaborate but was very tasty! The next morning it was alright to sleep in a bit more (as we arrived late in the evening) before heading out again.
Our stay was only one night, but if we had known the place would be so lovely earlier, we would have definitly stayed longer!
The only point of improvement was that there were no curtains in the living area. With the windows not blinded by anything else, people could just peek in, but we weren't too bothered by it in our case.
Thus, if you are looking for a good place to stay in Kochi, I would recommend this place!

The hotel is located in a side road, no view of any decent place, hence I would consider it to be over priced as no real facilities (no kettle provided, no fridge). The staff did not make any effort to make you feel welcome, several power cuts. The internet also is not very reliable.

Dear valued guest, I would like to thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am quite upset with the comments you have made about our Hotel. I can assure you that I take a very personal interest in every guest and we insulted that you think otherwise. I personally welcomed you when you reached at our hotel. The price for your room was just 2300 per day and it is a 350 square feet large studio (separate bed room, separate living area, balcony and a small kitchen) , with air conditioned, private en suite with 24 hours hot and cold shower, bath towels, toilet papers, bath soap and good quality furniture ( sofa set, dining table wardrobe ect.) 195 litter fridge and coffee maker with all stuffs and free wifi access in your room. we used our generator to give you power supply during each power cuts. Sorry to say, all your assertions are unfounded. I really do not understand your intention behind this wrong review.

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, huge living room with dinner table and chairs, sofa and 2 armchairs, wifi, aircon. There´s also a kitchen but it was locked because we opted out, saved some money and did fully concentrate on restaurants and street food without washing any dishes :)

Quiet side street about 10 minutes walk from most tourist places, but only 2-3 min. walk to food, ATM and rickshaw stand - perfect for our 9 day stay in Fort Kochi.

Sony, the manager was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bit simple (bread and omelett served to the room) but Sony offered us a discount on the room rate, for not ordering it anymore after a few days. We invested that money in lots of brilliant food in the local gastronomy.

I would recommend the place to every family. It is safe, superclean, very new, quiet, well managed, has big rooms and the vitally important AC and a huge Flatscreen TV for your culturally otherwise saturated offspring. For us with a heavy schedule it was always a good place to come back to, to charge our batteries for another exciting day in Kerala...

This hotel was a complete surprise, Compared to the low price we paid for the room, we expected a very basic accommodation. What a surprise from the moment we entered the front door, check-in was quick and everything was ready for our arrival.
The rooms are spacious with separate living and bed area, and had all the conveniences required. A comfortable bed and pillows ensured a good nights sleep.
Breakfast was included in the price and they provide it in the room . Room has in room dining facility.
I enjoyed my stay at Phils Residency. Will definitely suggest my friends to stay in Phils Residency when they come to Ernakulam.

This place is very near the center of activity in 'old' Fort Cochin, i.e. Chinese fishing nets, atmospheric restaurants, etc. (5 mins walk).
Newly built place so very clean and modern. Good air con units in rooms. Plenty of hot water in bathrooms. Lift. Secure parking area. Located in a very quiet area of Cochin, well off the main road but with local shops and ATM's nearby.
Sony, the manager spoke pretty good English, was extremely helpful, obliging, and seemed always willing to go that 'extra mile' to help.
After staying in some other rather less desirable (and more expensive) hotels in Cochin we can't recommend this place enough! Very relaxing.
