If you plan to stay at Fort Cochin you must come to this typical homestay ,the owner and her family are so nice and kind that they will make you feel like at home.The garden is wonderful,and the calm of the place contrast with the non stop activity of the town.You will enjoy the service,the place and the people for sure that was so kind,a special thanks to Ann and her daughter that was so helpful and kind.

What a warm welcome

Despite it being almost 2 years ago (could only fill in 2016, but it was February 2015) I visited Ann's Residency, I remember their welcome very vividly! We travelled for a long time and the heat and humidity weighed heavy on us. Ann and Maria, both such sweethearts!!, welcomed us in a way that made us feel at home immediately. I felt comfortable at once and could ease out and relax. The rooms of me and my father were both beautiful and spotless! Breakfast was great and every staff member was ready to help at any time. When after a couple of days we were ready to depart again, we by accident took the wrong cab. Of another quest... Hilarious of course, but also quite a problem because our driver didn't turn up at all. Luckely Ann immediately stepped up and arranged another cab, driven by a friend of hers. We were so grateful for that! I loved Kochin, merely because of this beautiful, quiet and comfortable place. If ever I go back, I'd definitely rent a room at Ann's Residency again!

Great place with quiet rooms, friendly staff and a good breakfast. Grounds of the residency are pleasing and very well kept, and it is easy to walk to many of the main sights. A welcome relaxing break!

After a long drive journey we arrived in this peaceful, well maintained homely house and we were warmly welcomed by Ann the owner. There were two deluxe room available and we choose the top floor with big balcony number 6 (not private as there is a door from outside) that faces the courtyard. A mini luxury was the Ayurvedic soap but there was no shampoo/shower gel so bring yours. The room was clean and tidy with all Indian wooden carving and decorations that made it special. Ann helped us in everything from booking a place to see Kathakali and Indian dance to supporting us in a historical moment in Indian where all 500 and 1000 notes were not accepted anymore and there were no cash to withdraw in ATMs. I'd definitely come back to Kochi and stay again at Ann's Residency as it's well located with 5 to max 15 min away from attractions.

After days on the road we wanted something comfy and Ann's residency was it. I was with 5 friends and we all took a deluxe room in pairs. The lady of the house is amazingly friendly and hospitable. The staff is always ready to help, rooms are clean and have everything you need; spacious balcony, mosquito net, comfy bed, a/c, relaxing bathtub and toilet paper on the bathrooms.

This was a place I had wanted to stay two years back and for one reason or the other could not make that much planed trip. The second I laid my eyes on Ann all my fears of staying at a new place alone with my daughter vanished in thin air. It felt like going home to meet Mom.

“Lovely peaceful retreat”

Ann and all staff were very welcoming and helpful. We were lucky to get a room with a huge balcony overlooking the wonderful garden. Large, comfortable room with AC and a well functioning mosquito net. Breakfast was great, consisting of fruit, cereal and omelettes + toast. Great location in the heart of Fort Cochin.

A real haven in the heart of Fort Cochin and excellent value for money. The residency is in a prime location close to all the historical sites and places of interest. Ann is an excellent host , she and her staff are really helpful.
