“Very Friendly and Cooperative. Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Travelled to Alleppy in the 15th August 2014 long weekend.
The location is its most advantageous point. Its very close from the YMCA junction.
The Bamboo rooms were comfortable enough, a memorable experience, though may not be advisable during peak heat season.The first floor has a huge lounging area where you can unwind and relax. Our room was neat, clean bed spreads, clean toilets with all electrical fittings in perfect working condition

We were allowed a early check-in, instantly provided the free wi-fi credentials, were offered bountiful tips about the city, for shopping.. for eating... which were very helpful.

Absolutely recommend it! Traveled as singles.

Stayed at the home stay during our visit to Allepey for the Nehru boat race in Aug 2014. The bamboo room in the first floor were comfortable & nice. We couldn't spend much time at the room as we were busy enjoying the boat race all day..The best part is the location..it is located in the heart of the city, hence it was very convenient to walk up to the finishing point of the boat race. Recommend it!! :)

Room Tip: The Non-Ac room work fine during the monsoon months, but might not be possible to bear the heat duri...

Alleppey will be memorable because of the stay in Ashamudi Homestay. The spacious lounging area on the first floor is the perfect space to relax. The rooms are nice and clean. A little mystery guest took away the soap and left footprints to give away! :)

Uma is a perfect host and her tips about the city, the eating places and most importantly, the boat race viewing was all so precious! Thank you Uma.

Rooms are ok but bathroom is not good at all. No water coming from toilet tap and no hanger in bathroom. Rooms and balcony are very nice and decorated. Bugs were falling from ceiling and bed is not comfortable for sleep

The charm of this hotel lies in the wonderful interior and the warmth of Subhash and his wife. The upstairs is a massive chill-spot with bamboo walls and big wooden doors with vintage locks on it. The service is the best I ever had in a hotel/stay. Subhash and his wife are two sincerely warm people who are always ready to help you out. They arranged a canoeing-trip through the backwaters of Allepey for us that was one of the most beautiful moments of our journey through India.
The downsides of this place are the mosquitoes, but nobody can do a thing about that. Besides, it was monsoon. There are mosquito-nets in the rooms and Subhash tries to kill all of them in the day, so this they do everything in their power.

Location is very good.

Overall: wonderful stay in an exceptional place with a great staff, keep it up!

We had zeroed in on Allepy for our anniversary and wanted a short and sweet, no frills holiday for 3 days. TA again came to our rescue in selecting this place. The reviews were good so booked a month in advance. Was exited about the bamboo rooms but didnt take a chance with the heat so booked the ground floor AC room ( I think there are only 2 or 3 of them). The lady in charge was very prompt and courteous and confirmed our online hotel booking over the phone and agreed to give us an early check in. (Some 3/5 star hotels act as if u are speaking french when you call them about online bookings and then you keep going in circles).

The location was perfect, all the major restaurants and the houseboat jetty within walking distance. The beach was also very near. The maids, the caretaker and the neighbors, everything gave us a sneak peek into the local life of Allepy! They quickly guided us to the best restaurants nearby instead of asking us to use the in-house kitchen, also arranged for a surprise Anniversary cake on my wife's request.

We booked a Shikara through them since we didnt have much time to spent on a houseboat. Also a Shikara trip offered more customization and access to the narrow backwater canals. The shikara ride was excellent and offered the same experience as that of a houseboat at 1/8th of the price. We kept the houseboat for our next trip!

The next day they also arranged a bike on rent for us from one of their neighbor and we covered the whole city on it. We got a chance to visit the legendary India Coffee House, the not to be missed Revi Karunakaran museum, the 150 year old lighthouse, and satisfied our crave for seafood which was long pending from Goa.

All in all it was a very memorable stay! Thanks to the owners! The three day stay felt like a week long holiday since we were able to pack in so much! Like I said this was a no frills stay so its better you pack your towels and toiletries!

Room Tip: You can use bamboo rooms if you are travelling in winter else you better book the ac rooms!
