We stayed herein February 2012 and wanted to write the reiew earlier but have been travelling since. This was a nice clean place with all necessary comforts (mosquito net etc) in a good location in Kochi. We enjoyed our stay here and Firoz was very informative and helpful, he arranged further stays in Munnar for us at a lovely homestay and backwater boat ride in Alleppey.
