A small cafe with very helpful and friendly staff set in the very atmospheric Vasco de Gama house. Furnishings very apt. Muesli fruit curd was well overpriced at 150IRS (Only pineapple and banana for the fruit) but the fresh cafetiere of coffee for only 30IRS compensated a little. Great for breakfast though menu prices could do with rethink.

Breakfast was included and the choice between traditional and western was very good.The hosts also run a travel agency and were...

I and my husband planned and almost cancelled the trip to Fort Kochi to get a glimpse of the Biennale. After some last minute hum drum we managed a room at Vasco Homestay and reached Fort Kochi on 2nd Mar. We got the room towards the back and its a big room with 2 separate beds. The beds can accommodate...

The street sound would not let you sleep at night. Leaving this nightmare, everything is great, old property - gives you a feel of old portuguese heritage palatial house. It is said this was Vasco-De-Gama's house. All the attractions of Fort Cochi are on walking distance.

Vasco is in a perfect position. Near to Beach, the Chinese nets, the Post Office, St. Francis Church, the bookshop. It is near to everything but on the edge of the Princess Street area. George is friendly. The rooms are Portuguese heritage and I actually preferred the smaller one at the back. Both are very good value. There is a...

Thankyou to George and his wife for a wonderful stay. It's been 15 years since I stayed here last & 2 years since we last met. This is a beautiful, light, airy, clean homestay.

This is a great place to stay particularly if you are on a budget. Mr Santosh and his family are helpful and very friendly. The room was huge with a bathroom, seating area, 2 large beds, mosquito nets, fans, hot water and TV. What's more it was Vasco Da Gama's actual house when he arrived from Portugal so it is...

We stayed here for only one night, and by accident (it's a long story of public transportation fiascos and sudden changes of plan). The building is very interesting historically; there are claims of Vasco da Gama living and dying here, which, even if unsubstantiated, bring a certain mystique and romance to the place. The room was interesting but a bit...

A great location (right next to St. Francis Church). Nice big airy room. Basic but functional with old world furniture and paintings. A great way to relax in Kochi The owners are helpful. The breakfast could include more items though!
