Stayed in Tissa's Inn for two nights. The hotel is an oasis of cleanliness in dusty and dirty Kochi. The location is good - close to the ferries and whatever there may be to see in Kochi, which is not much. If you take a cab to the airport, use the hotel to book - it will cost you extra... More

I stayed at Tissa's inn for one night and would definitely recommend staying here. The rooms are very clean and well maintained, the food in the restaurant is amazing, the rooftop pool is very clean and there is a nice area to laze around on lounge beds. On top of this the staff will go out of there way to... More

Tissa's inn has a very nice ambience and service level which gives the warmth of a home stay and the comforts of the hotel. The rooms were clean, toilets neat and dining place hygienic too. The owner has done tasteful decoration of the whole place with some touch to get furniture. The staff were extremely helpful in fulfilling our requests.... More

Tissa's Inn is a very nice hotel, tastefully decorated. Rooms are huge, with a pretty efficient and silent AC (important in Kochi), a large bed, nice complimentary gifts (dental kits, shaving kits and a comb) and a safe. The swimming pool is quite convenient and nice with deck chairs and towels. The restaurant is also quite nice even if the... More

I booked Tissa's Inn for some holiday with friends and family a couple of weeks ago. The hotel is great, but the staff was even better! We go welcome drinks upon our arrival - nice touch before being shown to our spacious, well arranged & clean rooms. The attached bathrooms were equally clean, and there was a glass panel to... More

A beautiful property with a lot of history situated close to everything in Fort Cochin. A short walk and one of the regular ferries takes you to Ernakulam on the mainland. Auto rick-shaws are abundant in the area. Great friendly team. Welcoming, kind and helpful. My room was upgraded from the standard and was a delight to stay in, clean... More

Excellent small hotel in Cochin, with a very warm ( in April) roof top pool. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff, organised a packed breakfast for my 23 year old daughter for her early morning flight home

We chose this hotel as we wanted somewhere quiet and comfortable and we were not disappointed. The rooms were immaculate and spotlessly clean. The staff were fantastic and could not do enough for us. In particular the staff in the restaurant. Chef went out of his way to provide local cuisine for us on the evenings we dined at the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's quite pricey as drivers were astounding at how much we were paying per night and thought we were loaded, we only chose it because it had a pool and as we stayed at Saj Homestay (next door – which was two thirds less in price), we thought it would be a treat. So... More

I selected this hotel as a base for when I arrived in India and also at the end of my trip. In both instances I was very happy with my decision. In particular the warm welcome, the beautifully appointed rooms and the convenient location for exploring Fort Kochi. I would like to make special mention to two staff members, Christina... More
