Wonderful clean hotel with warm friendly staff.
We were warmly welcomed by the owner Xavier and staff on our arrival. The airport pick up had been arranged efficiently prior to this. We were early to check in and so they kindly made another room available for us to rest and refresh while they prepared our room. All the rooms and hotel throughout are very clean with everything in good working order. We were able to get sound advice and arrange excursions as well very efficiently. Xavier is a well-established member of the community and as such, was able to advise and guide us well. Also the staff are willing to chat and we made friends with everyone there! Breakfast is simple and freshly prepared and delicious. We will return and thoroughly recommend Sonnetta's to anyone looking for a homely, quiet and cultured visit. Kerala Kathakali Centre is 5 mins walk and Xavier arranged the tickets for performances there too.

Cute Cochin (Kochi)
Xavier is the Christian owner, named after St. Francis, and will likely greet you. If he gives you advice you should follow it. On display is his picture with Mother Theresa. Xavier will explain all the switches and adjustment for the shower. It was first shower that had water hot enough to scorch you—be careful. You can request AC if you are overwhelmed by the heat, but the fan is the better choice. Marble floors throughout and good wi-fi. The included breakfast is either a toast and beverage style or an Indian choice. It is a mistake to not choose the Indian breakfast. The room door has a curtain, which is customary, and a formidable latch and pad lock-which I never felt necessary so I didn't even use it. Princess street is best described as the cutest street in Kochi and just off the peripheral walkway.

Homelike, sweet, close to water
The owner, staff, and other guests are very friendly. Sonnetta can help you arrange day trips and more in the area. The place is very clean: people are asked to leave shoes in a rack downstairs. Breakfast is small and cooked on-the-spot-- a good opportunity to meet other travelers, since we sit together. My room was for four people and worked well. I see that there are many equally well located places to stay in Fort Kochi, but I would stay at Sonnetta again because of the owner and people who work there.

Terrific stay in a great location.
The staff here are amazing. They are welcoming and willing to help in any way they can to make your stay memorable and help you feel at home. They organized our tour experiences and transfers at a moments notice. The facilities and room amenities are basic and a little old, but the room was incredibly clean and very comfortable. Bottled water is always provided. Great value for money. Cafes, restaurants, shopping, beach and bars are just a few minutes walk in this beautiful area. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend to all travelers and backpackers.

Very good 8.0
Good location in the main Street in Fort Cochin.
This home stay provided me with almost three weeks accommodation at an excellent room rate. I was staying longer than most since Fort Cochin is a very popular destination for backpackers and turnover at the home stay was high. It wouldn't be fair to rate this accommodation in the same way as a hotel. Nevertheless, the room was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful in every respect.
