Score from 91 reviews Very good
The place was fine . Easy reach of other stuff. Friendly staff . . Young people having fun in life working hard
Wi fi was good but up and down. . Could be improved
Beach access virtually across the road, great price, also has a really good café at the front which wasn't mentioned in description. No one tried to rip me off for anything, was a nice change.
water didn't seem to be switched on in the early morning (before 6am). some other minor things but for the price, who cares.
Only positive point is adjacent seafood restaurant Oceanos, very good and affordable.
Rooms too dark, no light outside. No hot water, sometimes no water at all. No room cleaning. No information on breakfast. At night this property managed by young guys is like a bar (without alcool as per Kerala statenew regulations) with loudly music.
Lovely building in a good location in Fort Cochin
Disorganised staff. They are lovely but really don't know how to manage a guest house.
the way the the homestay is its fantastic....staff and people over there is very friendly and approachable,....I never felt that i m away from home.....rooms are good and clean.the service is good.. The very importatmt thing is the beds r very comfortable and soft ..:had a very nicely sleep.
over priced and poor service, they tried to over charge us even when we were paying a premium price (booked on the net ) had a 1 hour argument with staff? till they rang owner. no one seemed to be in charge..no one to provide/cook breakfast..the other 3 hotels we stayed in while in India, third the price great service and lovely people
Location Only stayed 6 hours!
If you want a toilet that doesn't work, insufficient toilet paper for a 6 hour stay. No top sheet on the bed and paper thin towels. Wires hanging out of the wall and no staff as such to deal with. Then book a double budget room!
Loved the place. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Value for money. Staff is very friendly. The food at Buzz cafe is very nice. The owner, Mr Zennel is a very interesting and charming person and ensures quality care and service delivered to his guests. If I ever go back to Kochi, I am definitely staying here.
A great location close to all the sights of Fort Cochin, and friendly staff made our stay at Elphinstone Residency very enjoyable. The room (an outside bungalow) was comfortable and clean.
The bathroom was quite basic.
The establishment is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood, just 5 minutes away from the beach. I was particular impressed with the quality of the room - it has surpassed some places where I've paid double ir even triple the amount for the night.
Absolutely no complaints
Lovely helpful staff. Beautiful comfortable rooms. Quiet ideal location
Room lacked basic amenities such as kettle. Aircon constantly broke. Very loud at night & early in the morning. Troubles with wifi due to storm. No credit card machine
Located very close to the main activity areas of fort. Plenty of options available for eating in a 1 km walking area, plus in house restaurant superb, serves authentic Malayali food, sea food and great cafe Quaint little house, rooms are clean and courteous staff I only booked last minute, but was a good deal, location, price and experience wise
TV gets too many Mallu channels
Ultra professional warm european Hospitality. Excellent breakfat included in package. Very hep coffee shop. Ultimate location. Young and vibrant management. The best hotel ive stayed in and received the best treatment ever
I liked my stay at this homestay.
Ambience, simple clean atmosphere, good food great staff, neat rooms,awesome cafeteria
A/C dint work,so we had to change rooms.no parking facility. Clean but smelly toilet.
It was a good location for seeing Fort Kochi. It is on a quiet street but close to the places you are likely to want to visit. Breakfast was available and a good restaurant was just across the street.
The room was basic but ok however it smelt damp and had damp on the walls. Not everyone would be happy with that.
Quite and cute place in Fort Cochi. Fresh design and polite stuff. Good choice to stay.
Don't go with breakfast.
Good for people on vacation, a calm and quiet corner away from buzzing city. A nice restaurant nearby, it's a cozy small lodge.
Dirty towels and linen. No good break fast available
What I loved about this place was it's location, the architecture, the ambiance, the service and the kind of peace and tranquility this place can offer. Excellent is the word. Had an amazing time there.
Location was ideal, with close proximity to beach. Its a good value for money stay, with a nice restaurant attached to the hotel. Hotel upgraded us to a better room as they didn't had many guests, without us asking for it.
You cant expect 5 star facilities for the money you pay. AC in our room had an issue but was fixed later.
Clean, Friendly Place.
Location was good and the staff we're generally helpful. We took the budget room so the accommodation was fair
One staff member was too pushy in trying to get us to take him on as our driver for the week
Nice neighborhood and walking distance from the beach and fort kochi. Place looks visually appealing. The fact that they have a cafe and a restaurant is a plus.
I didn't find the staff interested in running the place. They didn't offer any information about the neighborhood and didn't even have a map. The wifi didn't work but I guess they don't have control over the service provider. The mattress was uncomfortable. The towels didn't feel hygienic so carry your own. The AC didn't cool properly so I also had to use the fan, which worked only on number 5, the fastest speed, and the room was small so it was like trying to sleep in a tornado. While it some may say its value for money I didn't get good rest so I'd suggest you pay a bit more and stay in a nicer place.
Elphinestone Residency was perfect for my boyfriend and I who wanted a base close to the central hub of Fort Cochin. Everything was in easy walking distance from the hotel! The hotel also arranged a taxi pickup from the airport and Mr. Niyas was absolutely essential in making our visit to Kerala a success! Mr. Niyas was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Excellent!
This place is best choice if you are in a group and looking for an affordable stay. The best part is the in house Buzz cafe and the restaurant 'Oceanos' which serves amazing sea-food. The staff is very friendly.
