A friend of mine with her mother would be traveling to Kumarakkom or Allepey in the month of April. Could someone suggest a safe home stay or a reasonably priced and clean hotel accommodation?
There are couple of luxurious hotels mid budget that also give you a chance to save up a bit on stay.. They are luxurious and yet very cheap. The only thing absent in such hotels would be that they won’t have their in house boat service, which they would arrange for nonetheless..

However if you are looking for cheaper deals, stay at Kottayam which is about an hour’s drive from Kumarakom.
For further queries you can explore ixigo they have a great list of hotels of various places specially Alleypey and Kumarakkom
Please use tripadvisor.in and search for alappuzha ( New name for Allepey ) hotels.You will be able to find some excellent choices in the budget classification.Ashtamudi Homestay seems like a good place.
While in Kumarakom there is no better place to stay than at Tharavadu Heritage Homestay. The family that runs it are lovely people, the rooms are well appointed and the food is authentic Kerala cuisine. Stayed there on a number of occasions...... feels really like a home away from home.

We just arrived in Cochin yesterday. We are visiting India for 2 months. Kerala is like an entirely different country from Rajastan and northern India. I feel like we landed on a tropical island in the Caribbean. It is so clean, although you don't lose the flavor of India. We were fortunate enough to find a room in Kochi at a place called The Bungalow. For us it's a perfect location. Approximately 1 block away is access to the ferry system that takes you to various places around Cochin, which is perfect because Cochen is really made up of 5 islands and ferries are the best way to go.

Since this is our first trip to India we had a lot of concern about safety, tourists traps, etc. It's a good idea to get as much info as possible prior to getting there because it can truly get hectic once you land.
