“Beautiful place, Excellent restaurant!”
Reviewed 4 January 2013 via mobile

We had a really pleasant staying at this hotel, thanks to the nice hotel staffs and the excellent (great quality/price ratio!) restaurant inside the restaurant. Unfortunately they don't serve beer. On the roof of the building there's also a small swimming pool to relax.

We stayed 2 nights at Tissa's Inn with New Year, and truly enjoyed our stay.
Rooms are spotless and simply but nicely decorated. The hotel itself looks great with all the 'antique' items around, and the small rooftop pool is very welcome after a walk in sweaty (even in the middle of winter !) Kochi. Location is excellent as all the sightseeing in Fort Cochin is at walking distance. Wifi is free and was working well.

Above all the staff is very friendly and helpful. We had several meals in the restaurant as well, and the food was always delicious (both local specialties as western sandwiches).

We had a minor issue when booking a house boat on the Backwaters through Tissa's Inn, but to be fair, this is not really their main business (and the issue was solved in the end).

All in all, Tissa's Inn is this kind of place with character that makes travelling so much more enjoyable.
Warmly recommended !

I had the pleasure of staying in a small hotel in Kochi for 3 nights. The room was spotless and also very quiet. Staff were excellent and bent over backwards to be helpful. There was a lovely pool on the roof with lounges which was a nice respite from the heat after being out.
I would definitely recommend this fine place to anyone wanting a small oasis in the heart of Kochi. It was also very nice decorated with various objetsd'arte around the place. Free wifi is also available as is a computer in the lobby for guests. A nice experience.

We stayed about a week at Tissa's inn during the Kochi-Muziris Biennale and really enjoyed our days there, feeling nearly at home with the highly apreciatable service attention given by the staff.
Tissa's inn is a really charming place decorated with lots of taste. One can admire the collection of antic furniture and objects there. Food is absolutely excellent, above all the kerala breakfast !
No doubt, we look forward to visit Tissa again !
Location is also very convenient.

It is a really gem in the centre of Fort Kochi. Situated a few steps from the historical centre of Kochi this family-run hotel is a real "must" for visitors of Kochi. I arrived at 5 a.m. in the morning after a long train ride from Madurai and the welcome was very warm and personal. The room was impeccable clean as was the bathroom. Although the hotel is situated on a main road there was no noise in the room to be heard. The house itself is tastefully decorated with antiques. The breakfast was delicious - one could choose between continental or Kerala bf. I always chose the traditional one. Very good, spicy and served by an super friendly waiter. The owner of the hotel Mr. Francis took the time to talk with every guest. One of the plus was the swimmingpool on the roof top - a nice relaxing spot after a day of sight-seeing and shopping. All in all really the best hotel on my trip trough Southern India and highly recommendable!

We had two days in Cochin at the end of our holiday in Kerala. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful - even to the extent of booking us in online for our flight back to the UK. It was situated in a good location but the bedrooms were quiet.
