Elphinstone Residency
Ranked #82 of 479 Kochi (Cochin) B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Elphinstone Residency is well located. I appreciated it being in a quiet side street but also only a short walk to shops, restaurants etc etc.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

The attached restaurant Oceanos serves delicious food and is worth a visit for those staying elsewhere.

The decoration is contemporary and of a high standard and the place is spotlessly clean. I booked online and got a very competitive rate for the place, especially for the standard of accommodation.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled solo

I quite enjoyed my stay here and would almost give it five stars. The rooms are very comfortable with good beds. The a/c was quiet and efficient. Decor in the room I was in was a bit dark, but otherwise it was nicely decorated. The staff are exceptional—really helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: I would say room #8 is the best choice if you really care about peace and quiet. It's on the gar...

Large, clean well decorated rooms. Hot powerful shower. Good wifi. Nice quiet location but less than 5min walk to centre of town/Chinese nets/beach.
Delicious breakfast, lovely fresh juice, fruit, toast, omelette and coffee.
Such helpful friendly staff!!!
Organised an overnight boat trip with them and it was one of the best experiences of our 8months travelling! Worth every penny.
Oceanus restaurant next door was great!

Elphinstone residency is situated in the Fort Kochi area and very close to the Fort Kochi beach and all other tourist attractions. The property itself and the rooms are comfortable, clean and offer good value for money. The staff is very helpful and were able to help us with directions and our day trip to the backwaters and also rent a bike, which made our life very easy :)
The only improvement I would like to see is the timing of the breakfast. It is usually available only by 8:30 (appears this is the case in all of Kerala).

We have stayed only one.night but it was enough to notice that the guys running the hotel are really nice and helpful. They upgraded us to a better room with no extra charge. Breakfast was delicious! Location is also great since you are at walking distance of the main places. I really recommend this residency.

Service was incredible for a homestay. Made us feel truly welcome & at home. Room rate offered was even cheaper than listed at booking.com. Restaurant & Breakfast both were fast, anticipating & delicious. For Europeans: Try the Mango salad!
