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.
The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was amazing.
The restaurant attached was good. Staff very prompt serving and with queries.
The Elphinstone Residency is suitably located in the heart of Fort Kochi. There is an excellent restaurant called Oceanos on site, that offers good food at reasonable prices, you have tourists from other hotels coming to sample their food. There is another restaurant on site but we shall leave that for the what you didn't like part lol. The Beds were comfortable and the air-conditioning worked well. We slept very well. Staff are friendly and organized our car for the onward journey
The Hotel is very basic. We stayed in the so called Deluxe Double room and there was absolutely nothing deluxe about it. My Mum and sister who stayed in the standards double room had a far better room,shower and toilet. Neither of the rooms boasted of basic facilities like a kettle for tea and coffee or bottled water. Our bathroom looked grubby and the toilet roll holder kept falling off the wall ( no place to keep your shower gel and shampoo) The television didn't work and the staff although friendly didn't seem to concerned about sorting it out, not even an apology was given. The Hotel boasts two restaurants,Oceanos and a Deli. The latter is a joke and the included breakfast is a farce. They shouldn't even advertise it as a free breakfast cause its sad. At check out they wouldn't take my card and wanted cash instead. It was all very stressful and would have been nice had they just told us the previous night. The staff are friendly like all the reviews say but unfortunately that can only take you so far. Their product is very poor. The hotel does have a relaxed feel about it and the architecture of the building is in keeping with Fort Kochis old world charm but that's about it. We definitely wont be staying here again. PS. There is a simple restaurant called Fish N Chips, opposite the Basilica church. Its run by a family and they are so warm and kind and it speaks through their tasty food. Try them if you get a chance.
Good value for money accommodation. Staff are amazing really friendly, the location is perfect.
Everything was absolutely perfect. Everybody so love what they do.
Good location in Fort Cochi, and absolutely worth the price. Friendly, helpful staff. A/C worked fine.
Unreliable internet. A bit noisy from the adjacent restaurant kitchen, because my room was next to it.
Great location Great staff Lovely room
Dirty pillows and bed. No water for night showers and very little bed for two.
This was a great place. The place was spotless and tastefully decorated. The staff were all really friendly and helpful too. There are two restaurants attached to either side of the main building, one is budget eats and one is high-end, and both are good for their various markets. Town is an easy ten minute walk down mostly-quiet streets. I'd definitely stay again if I returned to Kochi.
The wifi cut off on our last morning, but worked fine for the four days previous, so not such a big deal.
The staff let us in to our room early as we arrived straight off the plane from the UK and had not slept for almost 24 hours. They were keen to help wherever possible, and the room was clean and good value for money. Good location just a 5 min stroll to the centre of Fort Kochi. Recommended
Wifi didn't work in our room, only in the reception area. Quite noisy in the mornings but hardly the fault of the hotel!
Ambiance, Location, Restaurant, Staff.
The room we stayed in was beautiful, clean and exactly like the pictures. The hotel offers a "home away from home" atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for the brilliant staff. Every member of staff we encountered was friendly and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was the best possible. Including assisting us in finding further accommodation for the remainder of our stay in Cochin and advising us of the best way of traveling to Goa. The hotel is located ideally for exploring Fort Kochi and is close to all the local amenities. The Oceanos restaurant offers up some delicious local cuisine and should not be missed. We had a fantastic stay at Elphinstone and couldn't recommend it enough. A huge thank you to the lovely staff and I'm sure we will be back on our next trip to Fort Kochi.
The only downside was that the wifi didn't work in the rooms.
Location is great, clean, friendly staff
Expensive laundry as all around india
