Centrally located a 3 minute walk from the Chinese fishing nets in Fort Cochin on one of the "main streets" (re: little road lined with tourist amenities: Internet cafes, travel agencies, cafes, gift shops, etc.) it had a...

The other reviewers have said it all and it is true. We should have stayed 4 days and only managed 2 in the end-the loss was ours. The room was the cleanest we have stayed in in India-absolutely spotless including thebathroom and well furnished to suit the style of the building. All rooms have an area with chairs to sit...

We stayed at Walton's for 2 nights. It was very nice! The homestay is settled in the middle of Fort-Cochin. Within a few steps you are in the middle of the old centre of Fort-Cochin, which is very nice and authentic. Christopher (the owner of Walton's homestay) gave us a good welcome. He gave us a lot of information about...
