Budget Hotels in Kochi- Mainland Ernakulam
Biju's Tourist Home
Cannon Shed Rd Jn
The pick of the budget bunch: a friendly, efficiently run block just a 2min walk from the boat jetty, with thirty spotless, well aired and generous rooms ranged over four storeys. It has its own clean water supply and offers a cheap same-day laundry service. All in all, unbeatable value.
Cannon Shed Rd
The best of the few rock bottom options in the streets immediately east of the Main Boat Jetty, with 30 cheap, clean, non a/c rooms close to the city centre. To the rear of the main building, there are a couple of old ancestral bungalows converted into pleasant chalet-style "cottages".
The cottages are with red-tiled floors, wood ceilings and long pillared verandas. They're boxed in by the surrounding tower but offer lot more charm than anything else in this price bracket. Free Internet in the lobby.
Park View Residency
Cannon Shed Rd
The cheapest rooms in the city, and well scrubbed, with only a few marks on the walls. A bargain all the same, though the bathrooms have a stale smell.
Cannon Shed Rd
Since its refit, this tower block hotel, with 72 well-furnished rooms, has begun to rival nearby Biju's for quality and price at the upper end of the budget category.
John's Residency (Hotel)
T D Rd
With a cool, yellow foyer featuring interesting clutter such as vintage fans, this is a refreshing place to enter from the busy street. Rooms are small but decorated with flashes of colour: red curtains and bathrooms, that give a welcome surprise in this price bracket.
Budget Hotels in Kochi-Fort Cochin
Adam's Old Inn
Since its recent makeover, Adam's has established itself as the best of the budget in Fort Cochin, with well-scrubbed little en-suite rooms opening on to a central corridor-only the "deluxe" one to the rear has a terrace.
Several floors of basic, but clean and inexpensive, a/c and non ac rooms, stacked around a central gallery. It is a bit humid inside, but the rooms and landings are repainted annually, and the bathrooms are well scrubbed.
K L Bernad Rd
This little guesthouse is on the quite south side of town. Avoid rooms in the red-tiled family home, which get uncomfortably hot. Choose one in the new multistorey block across the road: these are great value, with comfy beds, little balconies, Wi-Fi, and a/c.
Pleasant, clean and friendly backpacker's hideaway, with just three cosy rooms, just down the lane from Kashi Art Cafe. Barred window look onto a little raised terrace and there's a hip little traveller's cafe on the ground floor.
Peter Celli St
Half of the rooms in this small guesthouse behind St Francis Church have windows opening onto an enclosed corridor, but the others are well ventilated-and they're all clean, neatly tiled and freshly painted throughout, with new beds.
This small guesthouse opposite The old Courtyard has to be one of the cleanest places to stay in Kerala; the surfaces are gleaming, bed linen boil-washed and bathrooms polished. It lacks character, and has no outside sitting space, but is efficiently run and provides a cheapest a/c rooms in the district.
Warm-toned wood pillars and gleaming ceramic-tiled floors line the verandas fronting this Portuguese-era house's eleven clean rooms, which open onto a painstakingly kept garden. Peaceful and good value for the area.
Mother Tree (Homestay)
Bernard Master Rd
There are just a few small rooms in this compact homestay, but its cleanliness and neat rooftop chill-out space make it a place worth seeking out.
Dream Catcher (Homestay)
K B Jacob Rd
Tucked away on a narrow laneway this old colonial house has budget rooms, an almost gothic sitting room and balconies lined with pot plants: it offers a backpacker-friendly welcome from the Portuguese-descended family.
Princess Inn (Guesthouse)
Sticking to its budget guns, the friendly Princess Inn spruces up its dull, tiny rooms with cheery bright colours. The comfy communal spaces are a treat, and the three large, front-facing rooms are good value.
Costa Gama Home Stay
Warm and comfortable little place that gets rave reviews.
With three neat and tidy rooms in a well-kept family house tucked into one of Fort Cochin's backstreets, away from the busy streets.
Royal Grace Tourist Home
This old-timer is one of the rare budget stalwarts still left in Fort Cochin. There are loads of rooms on offer in a large multistorey building, each with little more than a bed, four walls and a small bathroom.
