“Beautiful homestay in quiet but convenient location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

Daffodil is a beautiful homestay- clean, quiet and with great facilities including hot water, amenities and a lovely wraparound balcony. The owners are kind, honest and helpful. It is a little hard to find but the location is great- close to everything but away from the noise and smells of the main roads. Would definitely stay there again!

Dear littlemissgina,

We wish to inform you that our Daffodil's journey is about to end ... as we move to a new road…and house :) We really hope to see you again one day.
It was great for us to get to know you and share a part of our journey together!
THANKS A LOT!

I can only echo other positive reviews of this place. Spotlessly clean. Ideally located in a quiet part of the Fort area. Kumar is the perfect host - very helpful with his advice. He can arrange airport pickup for Rp 1080. It's about 40km and takes around an hour in traffic. Good breakfast each morning, and friendly staff.

This homestay is pleasant, and clean, and has efficient and friendly staff. We had a small room, with a clean bathroom (but no hot water). The balcony is very pretty.
Kumar the manager is friendly and willing to give directions, advice, and travel suggestions. The wifi signal was very weak and did not work
upstairs in our room. Overall, the Daffodil was sufficient, simple and safe!

A very clean, comfortable place to stay, with all mod cons and excellent hospitality. Kumar goes out of his way to help, and everyone there is gracious and welcoming. Would return and recommend it - great value too.
It's in an ideal spot for tipping around Kochi - which itself is a picturesque, buzzy place.

As newcomers in India, two adult female friends and two kids 9 and 12 yrs old, we were really lucky to have booked at Daffodil. I don't think I ever experienced such genuine hospitality.

Kumar welcomed us when we arrived. The sun was about to set, and we were a bit hesitant to head out on the streets in the dark. But Kumar offered to take us on a walk through Fort Cochin which made us feel totally comfortable and at ease.

The breakfast was really good and the second day they even went out of their way to make pancakes for the kids and buy the fruit juice the kids preferred.

Kumar also arranged tours and was a great source of various information about absolutely everything.And all was done with a smile. If I ever come to Fort Cochin again, I definitely know where to stay! You raised the bar and although we stayed at many nice hotels, no one could come close to Daffodil.

We could not have asked for a more perfect start of our Indian holiday :-).
A big big thank you, Kumar, for your hospitality and genuine friendliness.
Even the kids compared all other hosts with you :-)

We stayed two nights. Very comfortable and quite rooms and a wonderful terrace. From there you can walk anywhere in Cochi. The lady who runs the homestay is extremely kind and helpful. I highly reccommand Daffodil.

By far the best during our trip to Kochi. From arrival to departure, we were all smiles. Good location, within walking distance to all the sights in the area and the fishing nets.

Place was clean, quiet and everything worked.....air con, wifi etc

Only wished we could have stayed longer.

Thanks Kumar!
