Considering the attractive price (35 USD), prime location in Fort Kochi (walking-distant from all fun places of Fort Kochi), and excellent service, I definitely rank this hotel a 4. It is good value for money. The rooms are simple but modern, very neat and clean, surprisingly there is in-room A/C and ceiling fan, very nice to have after a sticky day out! Bathroom was modern and clean too, towels changed every day without fail. No in-room WIFI, however free WIFI is available in the breakfast area, and there is a free-access desktop for those traveling without computers / smartphones. Rate also includes a simple but satisfactory breakfast: fresh fruits, eggs to your liking, toasts, tea or coffee. Conveniently located in front of the ferry terminal for Vypin island, all cool shops and restaurants of Fort Cochin are within 5-8 mn walking distance from the hotel. Last, the standpoint of Abad Pepper is the staff: the service was awesome. Especially a young skilful man called Nittish and his assistant (sorry I forgot the name): very helpful, courteous and friendly, but also surprisingly polyvalent! (as nicely said before by a British reviewer!): one evening I come back after midnight to the hotel, Nittish is there at the reception. I wake up at 8 AM the next day, Nittish is already busy preparing the breakfasts. Always eager to help with any needs. Another personal anecdote: one evening unfortunately a local crazy man started to follow me and bother me in the small street leading to the hotel (I am a solo-woman traveler). I tried to ignore him, but he insisted. I was so grateful to see Nittish's silhouette in the dark, as he was luckily taking a short break in front of the hotel. He immediately understood the situation, and had a protective attitude towards me: he asked me if I was OK, what happened. The next day, I learnt that the man didn't give up on me, and asked Nittish if I was alone. Thankfully, Nittish talked him away, telling that I was traveling with a group of friends, and to leave me in peace. Thank you so much for that, Nittish!
And on top of that, this young man is still studying! I hope Abad hotel realises the value of his staff, and remunerate them appropriately!
