An excellently run property, well trained and very helpful and polite staff. Rooms are well-appointed and modern.
A caveat : Suitable only for those visiting the Infopark in Kochi, as its a bit out of the town. Its location was specifically actually chosen to serve visitors to the Infopark.
Food was excellent Kerala cuisine, and the chefs managed to get the authentic flavours into their various curries.

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.

Very pleasant hotel with large rooms, friendly staff and good facilities. We were upgraded to the hotel suite which was a large, well-appointed very comfortable room. The hotel is very well located near to the historic area of the Chinese fish nets and walking distance to restaurants, bars, craft and art shops etc. Staff were helpful and friendly. Indian style breakfast on the top floor was very good.

"Very comfortable hotel in great central location"
We stayed at the Tea Bungalow for three nights in Oct 13. The hotel is located in a great location for visiting the main attractions of Fort Cochin, the spice markets and Jew Town.
Tea Bungalow is a small, beautifully presented hotel, the staff were friendly and polite and the room was very pleasant with, importantly, an efficient air conditioning system.
We stayed on a Bed & Breakfast basis so I can only comment on the food from a breakfast perspective... a good choice of Western and Indian food on offer, well cooked and presented with courteous and friendly service.

Second time I have stayed here. This time I brought my family. Charming because it is basic. Not 5 star. Doesn't try to be. But old world charm definitely present. A very pleasant room downstairs to read books in. Staff lovely and very accommodating. Best to get the upstairs rooms if you can. They are quieter. Don't put your luggage under the aircon unit as it can drop water on your stuff. Not a major issue. Just beware. Love this place. Will be back if ever I stay in Cochin again. The rooms can be kept nicely cool in the hot environment. Location perfect. Near the nets and the shops and restaurants.
