We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the attractive clean homestay which had a large room with effective air conditioning and fan.Good sized bathroom.Friendly staff and breakfast was served on the first floor adjacent to the bedroom.Handily placed for restaurants and 3 minutes walk to the water front.

Nice , friendly people. Wooden floors and furniture. Heavy doors to the room, closed with heavy lock. At the room small separate place with the window and armchair - perfect for reading. Very quiet. We stayed there only one night but I think when staying longer in Fort Kochi – it’s a good choice. Only negative aspect were mosquitos in the bathroom. Positive aspects: located at very quiet little street, near good restaurants, not far from the touristic attractions and shopping street. Nice people served us the breakfast near our room (I think once it was a kind of parlour, see the picture). It was nice to eat in such stylish place.

I was referred this AM to this Heritage B&B and all I can say after staying at a nuimber of dreary, poor service hotels in south India, this has got to be one of the nicest places I have stayed at during my 6 weeks here . The rooms are nicely laid out, a good size and well furnished. The bathroom is also up to snuff and I had my first hot shower in about a week even though I am staying in mid-price places. It also is in a very quiet but central location in Fort Cochin, and as all India travelers know, it is almost impossible to get away from traffic and religious facility noise here. It is also spotlessly clean. If the coffee is good in the AM, this place is perfect.

Room Tip: I saw 3 rooms, and I have a feeling all the rooms are nice. I selectedthe one with the enclosed por...

Chiramel is a beautiful heritage home that has been in the family for generations. The rooms isn the main house are the originals with more rooms in the back of he building. We stayed in a smaller budget non/AC room in the main house but it was really comfortable, clean and great value over the busy holiday season. Asha the owner really took care of us and made us feel at home. It's a great location for exploring Fort Cochin and is on one of the quiter streets near the parade ground.

Room Tip: Try and book the rooms in the main house

This is excellent accommodation at an excellent price. This is a well-renovated classic home in dark, polished teak. We took the 'Heritage' option, with its large rooms and adjacent 'study', four-poster bed etc. situated on the same floor as the main heritage lounge and dining-room. All very nice. Bathroom provided hot water and showers, though I preferred the old bucket and scoop method - so satisfying pouring hot water over ones shoulders.....Courteous, on-time service. Helpful advice. Free wifi! This is a classy package. Ask for what you need.

Room Tip: Choose the Heritage option, for richness without the cost.

Lived here as a boy in school when it was just a private house my father rented. Had a well and cow shed in the back yard. Now the place has been renovated and restored to its former glory and upgraded with running water, fans, A/C and polished teak wood floors. Rooms are comfortable and the friendly owners Sunny and Asha personally take care of you.
A free breakfast is included in the price and WiFi (also free) is fast and signal is strong.
The receptionist Ben is a pleasant and helpful person always ready to help with tour reservations or any problems you may have.
It was wonderful to be back in the old neighborhood and I cannot wait to go back again.

Room Tip: Rooms are all quiet as the street is a quiet one.
