“my family hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

We booked the hotel with out knowing that it's a beautiful, clean and the staff is amazing! We got not only information but also help with traveling and fluffing our needs. We got in very late and they opened the kitchen for us. They arranged a driver for us and told him where to take us. We didn't want to leave the hotel after traveling in many places in India.

Tissa's Inn is a very nice place: Cool, stylish, friendly. The perfect place to stay in a hot, dusty town. Rarely have we felt so much at home. A fantastic place to stay with a child, who is welcomed, and who can enjoy the nice pool on the roof. Highly recommended!

Tucked into a cute little bylane of Fort Kochi, Tissa's Inn provides a fantastic, cosy and classy stay. Its location is superb - in the heart of Fort Kochi, all tourist attractions like Santa Cruz, Chinese fishing nest, fort kochi beach, mattancherry, kathakali centre etc. are all within walking distance from Tissa's.
The staff is extremely polite and friendly, the highlight of our stay being the warmth and helpfulness of their Manager Mr. Francis - truly a gem of a person. They treated us just like family!! Helped us with all that was requested.
The rooms are awesome, extremly well decorated, ethnic in style. V well maintained property, with a lovely pool of the top floor!!
Food was excellent, and breakfast is lavish. Highly recommended :)) Im certainly going back to Tissa's on my next trip to Kochi.

P.S: Must try their Ginger Punch, its by far the best iv ever had!!!

Room Tip: Request for a room overlooking the street rather than one of the rooms facing back!

Tissa’s Inn was the first place we stayed upon arriving in India. It was a wonderful introduction. Mr. Francis and the staff made us feel cared for and comfortable. Their attention was personal, although not intrusive.

The rooms are large and clean. Air conditioning, television, and bathroom all worked well. Breakfasts (included) were delicious, offering either western (eggs prepared as requested) or Indian fare, accompanied by fresh fruit, juice, and coffee or tea. We also ate dinner at the restaurant (a la carte menu) and enjoyed that too.

The Inn is well-located, across the street from an ATM. At the corner are neighborhood stores where one can buy everything from fresh fruit, to a SIM card. Chinese fishing nets are a 10-minute walking distance. Jew Town and the Dutch Palace are a 10-minute tuk-tuk drive away.

Mr. Francis helped us to arrange some of our subsequent travel arrangements and followed up to make sure that things were going smoothly. Everything went flawlessly.

We highly recommend Tissa’s Inn.

This boutique hotel conveyed a personal friendly atmosphere. Some of this was the nature of the decor - no cookie-cutter approach to furnishings here. Highly individual pieces of functional and decorative furniture give a sense of being invited into someone's home. Once there (even when we arrived around midnight!) we were made to feel welcomed guests at every interaction whether from the waiter in the restaurant at breakfast (included) and dinner, the reception staff, or the manager. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The attention to housekeeping detail was excellent yet unobtrusive.

If I should chance this way again I would choose to stay at Tissa's Inn.
