I am your host named Xavier hailing from an ancient Christian family who was in the forefront of hospitality field. We were Boat makers and suppliers since many years.
This is a lovely hotel. So clean and fresh. Very well maintained. The rooms are lovely, with a pleasant ambiance and stylish decor. Thank you for presenting this property in such an appealing manner. Well done to the Sonnetta team. Many thanks.
I consider myself to be extremely lucky to have "discovered" this delightful place. My room is spacious, airy and spotlessly clean, the television was an extra bonus. Mr.Xavier is the perfect host and Shaiby, the desk -in-charge is even so helpful. I was not very well when i arrived and they both took care of me in advising me and suggesting appropriate medication and constant supply of flask full of hot water to irrigate my done throat. I have never been so well looked after! I shall miss this kind care and attention but hope to return next year. I shall tell all my friends where to stay when they visit kochi.
We very much enjoyed our 3 days stay in Sonnetta Residency. Specially your very clean rooms. They are the best we have seen in India until now. The staff is kind and helpful and we loved the backwater cruise yesterday, then the taxi driver went a little too fast to our opinion. Best regards.
I stayed in USA for 7 years, Europe(Germany)for 4 years. Have traveled all over the world. Here at \'Sonnetta\' I remembered our stay in one of the guest houses in Australia. This place is clean, staff is always attentive and above all Mr. Xavier-he made our stay most comfortable (from 18th to 25th September 2010). This is not a hotel or guest house. We felt every evening as if we are returning home Thank you so much Mr.Xavier. God bless you and your staff-always! We feel very lucky to visit \'God\'s own country\' and in that \'His own house\'.
I thereby confirm that i have had the extremely pleasant and peaceful stay for one whole month with these wonderful people in Sonnetta. I have felt very much at home from the very first day. I hope other people will experience the same thing and tell their friends to come and stay here.
My name is Vincento and i come from porpei Italy, where i grow up. But i live in Gal way Ireland, and i am classical guitar player. I like to say thank you for stay in this welcoming hotel and i enjoyed and i will be back again and tell all my friends to come in Fort Kochi at hotel Sonnetta, because is comfortable, clean, not too expensive, good quality, safety and the owner is a honest person with good heart. so again i am very happy to be here.
After trying many different accommodation in fort Cochin, i find Sonnetta to be the best place for peacefulness, cleanliness and a friendly environment. It is also good value for money- i do not have any doubts in recommending it.
