“Clean and great hospitality”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We didn't get a place in Sajhome next door, but Saj recommended this place to us. We don't regret it, it was great. Sonia was very helpful and organized trips for us to Munnar and the backwaters in Alleppey. The room was very clean and the house looks great from the outside. We felt like home and would definitely come back here.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2 different rooms and they were all similar.

We booked in here when saj home was full. We didn't really know what to expect but saj recommended it and we decided to trust him. Sonia was very helpful with all bookings for tours and taxis and directing us where to go. The place is walking distance to everywhere including jewtown. The rooms are sparse and quite workable. The a/c was freezing cold (great for us). The bathrooms were clean and it was a quiet environment. The wifi was dodgy at times but usually pulled through. We would recommend this place to all our friends.

We stayed here when we couldn't get in to Sajhome next door. The hotel is nice enough. The outside is amazing and the verandah upstairs is a nice place to have breakfast in the morning.

Rooms are fairly basic but spacious. Good shower. Beds are very hard but that's the norm in India.

Location is very good. Not right in the middle of it but a short walk to the main tourist area.

The staff speak English enough to answer questions and while they were friendly, they didn't seem interested in having a conversation. On the first day we asked if we could have dosa for breakfast so they organised it for the next two days for us.

We were happy with our stay but the place just didn't seem to have a "touristy" feel.

We initially had some language barriers while trying to book a room but the place came highly recommended so we made an effort to book through a friend from Kochin. We later received a call from Sonia, the manager who spoke English. When booking a room, its best to call during office hours for an English speaker. Room rates vary according to the season, and it peaks towards mid December to January. For breakfast, we were served tea/ coffee, toast, jam, butter, an egg and pineapple juice, which was sufficient. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. The property is very well maintained. Our request for additional beds were easily accommodated. The tourist attractions are within walking distance and there are many nice restaurants and coffee shops nearby. There were many European guests while we were there. They have special accommodation free of charge for drivers, which is very thoughtful. The rooms are equipped with mosquito repellent and is safe from mosquitoes if you keep the door closed at all times. The hallways are also protected with mosquito netting doors. If you intend to spend much time in the balcony, you may want to consider taking some mosquito repellent along. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

Booked in advance as I was arriving 2am with kids.

Good: nice , spacious and comfortable .

Bad: overpriced , was told its peak season but I didn't see anybody rise apart from another couple . Sonia the manager is super helpful . Breakfast is basic and not many customers . WIFI IS HOPELESS even I inquired before coming.

Planned 4 nights but leaving after 2.

Never book online there are plenty of home stays which you can book on spot after inspecting rooms and bargaining .

Not much to see or do in Kochi. Beaches are dirty , see food stalls on beach side are 100% dodgy . Hard to find good restaurants.

Best thing was to hire a Auto risk haw for Rs100/hr and go around the town saving you walking in hot and humid climate.
John to Munnar and hoping for a better experience.

Additional value: the hotel is located in the village area of Kochi, just 10 min to walk to the touristic area, so you will get a lot of the normal life and can eat in the village restaurants around
the bathroom and the rooms (we moved because of a Munnar trip) were always clean, the rooms nice simple, adequate for a one week stay. Warm water was there every time, the breakfast was really good and fresh and always served from the really friendly staff, they also gave good tips for eating in the surrounding area.
The Munnar trip we had was with a really good and reliable driver from destination holidays (Simon A.). The Hotel in Munnar, booked through the Chackupurakal could not keep up the standard of the Chackupurakal - unfortunately, so that the night there was not the best...
the taxi driver at the end of our stay back to Ernakulam was a bit expensive for the drivers ability, and if this driver we had, an very old man, wants to stop, please take care of your wrist - he will take it and tell you: "no diabetis, no cancer, no liver problems..." - in one way a story funny to tell, on the other hand an infringement of limits between man and woman.
Palladio would cry because of the proportions of the villa - but alltogether it is a really nice complex with a superb garden and far away from the street to have good nights. The matresses are really good to sleep.

Room Tip: try to get a room in the upper floor

Our stay in Chack Inn was a delightful experience. The place is spotlessly clean and immaculate. The rooms are so spacious and grand, like a palace. My sister's family traveling with us needed additional beds for her kids in her room and the Chack accommodated cheerfully. Sonia, the manager, is a pleasing, helpful lady and she ensured that we weren't lacking anything - restaurant recommendations, sightseeing tips, etc. The breakfast included freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee / tea, egg omelets, and toast. The dining area is grand and spacious like the rest of the house.

My sister was able to park her car in their spacious lot for free and Sonia gave us tips for the car-ferry to go to Cherai Beach in Vipin Island.

For the small cost (Rs. 2400 a night), the Chack is an unbeatable deal. We have pleasant memories of the place and Cochin and we can't wait to go back there!
