Having recently stayed at Tissa's Inn, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The hotel itself is beautifully and uniquely decorated with a relaxing, tranquil but not boring atmosphere. The standard room was very comfortable and spacious with a classy, comfortable double bed. There is also a roof terrace with a lounge deck and a pool, accessible at guests convenience. Here...

I had returned to the notorious 'Tissa Inn', merely a week after leaving her for our trek to Madras, one does not realise the beauty and pragmatic approach the staff take until you can compare-which we so easily did. Above all, it is the friendliness of the staff that makes Tissa a relaxing recluse to return to after a hot...

Clean, comfortable, well-appointed and well-lit room. Really nicely decorated and spacious, nicer than other more expensive rooms we stayed in during our trip around India. Very clean bathroom, though everything got wet when we showered. Warm, very friendly service. Manager has been in Cochin working at hotels/restaurants for years, and knows all the good places. His recommendations for where to...

This is a beautiful little hotel with very warm, caring staff. I really felt pampered while I stayed here. The rooftop pool is tiny but thankfully very private - women travellers can swim here in peace.

Tissa's Inn is a very well presented 'boutique' style hotel that is conveniently located in the middle of Fort Kochi and within walking distance of all attractions. Mr Francis and his team of staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Each time we went to breakfast or walked through reception we were greeted and asked how our day was. Mr Francis...

Myself and my amigo, on arrival to the grand Tissa Inn, were warmly greeted and welcomed by Francis (extremely charming and always ready to help) and his hospitable staff. We stayed for two weeks in a beautiful room- minimal fittings with choice traditional antiquities. This ensuite room was serviced daily, cleaned flawlessly of the souvenirs, nature so kindly presents whilst...

We stayed 2 nights here. We were amazed by the interior decos here. Its tastefully done. This is a boutique hotel with few rooms. The staff are always ready to serve and very helpful.

A nice place with a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and roomy, and the food in the restaurant was tasty. The hotel is nicely decorated with local antiquities, and on the roof there is a nice and cool swimming pool.

Tissa's Inn is a lovely place to stay. I really can't find anything negative to say about it. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean rooms, nice breakfast. The location is great, five minutes' walk from the Chinese fishing nets. The staff are all helpful and friendly and there's even a pool.

We have been traveling between Chennai to Cochin by car and stayed in 7 different hotels, all parallel in cost to the Tissa's Inn. Tissa's Inn was clearly the best out of all! Huge and comfortable rooms, facinating atmosphere with roof pool and antiques statue and pictures. Excellant breakfast and most important - smiling faced from all staff. Aighly recommended!!!
