Fort Inn is run by a wonderful accommodating team (Biju - you're still a superstar!). After being scammed in Kumily by a travel agent, Biju and the owner went out their way to have our train fare refunded, drove us to a new travel agent and rebooked our tickets to Goa. Biju also allowed us to keep the room until...

I stayed for 5 nights at the end of December. Anusha and Thompson, the hosts, are kind and generous people. I found the room standards high. The buiding has a northern exposure and there is very little direct sun so the rooms can seem dark. I was pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the furnishings were of good...

We enjoyed 4 night at this homestay and were very comfortable. Anusha and Thomson, the owners were very friendly and helpful. They let us use our rooms until 10pm and our departure to the airport for our night flight without any extra charge. The location was very good, near the ferries, Chinese fishing nets, shops and restaurants. By the way,...

The room was over furnished with 3 beds when there was only room for two, linen and towels were grubby and sheets not even...

Recommended by Kerala Ecotours. This B&B is not a smart hotel but is run by friendly, considerate people. We stayed there four nights, two of them in transit to other parts of Kerala & the family were extremely flexible and helpful about our arrivals and departures. There is air-conditioning as well as a fan or two in each bedroom; and...

We stayed here for about a week. The staff is professional, the rooms are clean, the area is ideal and away from hectic traffic and noise of a highway. Being a photographer I carried many valuable items, and I never locked our door once. Anusha and her family run this place very professional. They can book tours for you, as...

Great Homestay in the Centre of Cochin. Stayed there one night just before New Years in 2007/08. Rooms were clean, en-suite bath room and shower. Staff was very friendly and welcoming and all for a really good price.

Fort Inn is conveniently located close to all of the sites of Fort Cochin and is a reasonable value even during the peak tourist season. The staff are very friendly and were helpful to us during our stay. The pastry store next door makes delicious cakes!

“The best looking room is the ground floor extreme left. Stayed there twice. Pic attached. Though this makes it noisy too since its bang on the road which sees a lot of traffic. Autos horns can get on your nerves if you are not a morning person.”

“They are all of the same high standard, but the room at the back is likely quieter as its not overlooking the road. The power can be intermittent, as with everywhere in India, but they have a back up generator that they start up soon enough.”

“The double bedroom with AC doesn't have a king/queen bed. It's 2 beds joined together. . So may not be comfortable, esp. for people with bad backs. Extra bed - 500 Rs”
