This was a home-stay, mainly for budget tourists. It comes with breakfast, but not too many options. Rooms are clean, with free Wi-Fi. There are just about 3 rooms, but is quite spacious. The owner and the manager are friendly and do help when possible. However, there is no facility for room service or for food. They have a good... More

Fort Cochin has an old charm. And this homestay and hotel (skywings) are very close to the beach and walk-ways next to sea. I have stayed in the skywings section and loved the cleanliness and the way it is maintained apart from the wonderful behavior from their side.

A really Nice homestay with big rooms and a lovely staff. Showers with hot water and ac if u want that. The guesthouse is a budget homestay and you get what you are paying for. If you are looking for a five star hotel u should go somewhere else, but for backpackers like us, this is more than good enough.... More
