A historic building centrally located in downtown Alleppey. It's easy to hop on a Tuk Tuk and be at the beach for a nice sunset walk or shopping. However, in our experience, management is a bit cryptic. Although It was not busy during our stay, somehow we felt rushed to make snap decisions with inconsistent information. We asked to have cloths washed and were charged 10x the rate of other homestays - leading us to question other prices quoted. We asked for direction and logistical help to visit near by attractions recommended by Karela Tourism and told "no, just go to the beach." Also, Ashtamudi is not a place to just hang out. It's hot, loud and the upstairs lounge is not comfortable.
We rated 3 stars because of the houseboat experience arranged by Ashtamudi management. The food, staff and all around houseboat experience arranged by Ashtamudi was positive.
