“Great hotel”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

We only spent one night at Tissa's but were very happy with the service, ambience and cleanliness of the hotel. It has a very nice aesthetic, with som beautiful artworks around the space.

Our welcome was great, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The view was not great, but that happens often in India, unless you're in a resort with high walls or 15 acres.

There were a few things I thought should maybe have been included at that price point which weren't - all easy to get over considering the place was so nice. Had to ask for hair dryer and iron, which were promptly provided. No room service in this hotel, or alcohol.

Overall this is a great place to stay - I haven't given 5/5 because at this price, expectations are somewhat high, and though there was nothing lacking at all, my expectations were not exceeded. This hotel really hits the mark, and delivers the comfort expected for the price bracket it's in.

This was the first place that we stayed at on our tour of Kerala after arriving in Cochin and we were not disappointed. Our room was clean, simply but elegantly furnished and the air conditioning worked really well. The only drawback was that we were on the ground floor facing the entrance to the hotel and the busy road, with people walking around all day. This meant that we had to keep our curtains closed for privacy. As we were only staying for 2 nights, we decided not to request a room change but this may be something worth considering if you decide to book. The restaurant menu was quite basic but the food was good and the staff very friendly and helpful. There was a rooftop pool which looked very nice but we didn't use it - not enough time. Location wise, I think there are hotels better situated in Fort Kochi, closer to the harbour and the chinese fishing nets, for example, but Tissa's Inn is still only a short walk away.

Room Tip: Our ground floor room faced a busy road so we had to keep curtains closed. Ask for a first floor roo...

We stayed at Tissa's Inn located in Fort Kochi in the state of Kerala,India during March 2014. The hotel was spotless, well appointed and in a great location. The rooms were spacious and the dining area was fine. It even has a rooftop pool. Although we only ate breakfast at Tissa's, judging by our overall experience I would be confident that the food would be fine.
The highlight of Tissa's for me was the service provided by Christina and Sanitha at the front desk. Nothing was a problem for these very professional managers who arranged our transport, gave travel and dining advice, arranged ongoing activities including a rice barge and flights and a hotel in Dehli. They even resolved our IT issues.
I look forward to returning to Tissa'a again soon.

A big thank you to the staff at Tissa Inn for all their help at the end if my trip to Kerela. Centrally located to explore Fort Kochin, the hotel is great and the staff fantastic in helping with my queries and travel arrangements. Great to have access to a pool in the town and still be so central to the beautiful views of the fishing nets. The wifi access only being available in the reception area was my only frustration, but the fact that had it was great.

An excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms and centrally situated for exploring Kochi. Breakfast was comprehensive but lacked the quail we experienced at other places in Kerala. Incredibly clean throughout.

Tissa's Inn is a gem. Spotless rooms, excellent food in the restaurant, helpful and friendly staff, and a rooftop pool for a before breakfast swim. Great location for exploring Fort Cochin, too. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 4 nights in February. The staff were friendly and all facilities were very clean. Breakfasts were good but limited. Refreshments were available at other times, but no alcohol is available. It is situated on a busy road with no space around it, but is within walking distance of local attractions and restaurants. There is a small swimming pool on the roof, with reclining chairs in a covered area.
