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...

Like several other travelers, we were recommended here by Saj and were not disappointed. This is a lovely, clean home stay, very convenient and well-equipped. The owners are very helpful and professional.

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. The...

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...

Additional value: the hotel is located in the village area of Kochi, just 10 min to walk to the touristic area, so you will get a lot of the normal life and can eat in the village restaurants around the bathroom and the rooms (we moved because of a Munnar trip) were always clean, the rooms nice simple, adequate for...

Our stay in Chack Inn was a delightful experience. The place is spotlessly clean and immaculate. The rooms are so spacious and grand, like a palace. My sister's family traveling with us needed additional beds for her kids in her room and the Chack accommodated cheerfully. Sonia, the manager, is a pleasing, helpful lady and she ensured that we weren't...
