We had a great time at Judy's. She always has time for a chat. She organised our overnight trip to the Backwaters(really worth doing) and even took the trouble to ring us on the boat to know if everything was ok. Sheldon, her son, is also very nice and helpful.
The hotel is small and totally feels like home. This homely feeling is totally due to the way Judy runs her hotel. She constantly goes out of her way to help.
Although located right in the heart of Fort Kochi, it is very quiet at night.
We would definitely stay there again.
Our family, (2 adults and 3 teenage children), traveled to Cochin in July 2014 from Canada. We booked 2 rooms for 3 nights...had considered booking a fancy hotel for our remaining 5 days in Cochin. We loved our stay and ended up staying for one week at Honolulu Home. Mr. Aboo and his family were very hospitable...made us feel at home...The rooms were clean... had fans and air conditioners which made our stay very comfortable. Internet service was very useful as it helped us stay in touch with family back home. Daily breakfast was either South Indian (Idli, Vada, and Sambher) or North India (Puris with curried potatoes), and excellent masala chai. One night, they cooked us dinner which was delicious. Aboo was very helpful as he booked our trips to Munar and Alleppey backwater boating as well as tickets for Kathakali dance and classical Indian Music which was great. Aboo and his family were excellent hosts who looked after us and served as very resourceful guides about local sites and area. Aboo's family also arranged to have our laundry done and a car/driver for our trip to the Airport. It is walking distance to nearby restaurants and shops in Fort Kochi. We would highly recommend Honolulu Home and would stay there again.
A good hotel. Clean and comfortably. Great customer service.
Good restaurant and breakfast. Plenty of room at breakfast to enjoy reading a newspaper over several cups of tea. Restaurant staff are great.
The hotel is near Fort Kochi (10 min tuk tuk - 40-50 Rupees) but not in the heart of things which can be good. There are lot of hotels near princess st which can be a little cheaper but I thought Hotel Abas was worth the little bit more. The room was relatively clean and it did the basics well. I found it interesting that it was cheaper to book it on Expedia than to book at the hotel. I wanted to extend my stay and therefore, had to rebook using expdia.
