Tranquil dining room, lovely staff and a superb vegetarian lunch. Chef whipped up dishes with light complex spices, the dishes worked so well together. The only problem we had is we couldn't finish it all! Highly recommend.

Fort Kochi is a place meant for endless walks. And Tissa's is a perfect point to launch yourself into the lanes around the hotel. The rooms are decent, and surrounded by local residences. The breakfast ample, though gets repetitive. And the staff is just wonderful. Edward, Christina and Sanitha were helpful and friendly. Manoj, the driver that the hotel arranged... More

This must be one of the best hotels in Kochin! Comfortable rooms that are cleaned in an impeccable manner, very friendly and helpful staff, a nice pool on the roof. The restaurant is very good! We stayed during the off season. We were at one point the only guests in the hotel and received a lot of attention from all... More

Stayed at Tissa's inn for 3 nights last weekend, couldn't have been more satisfied. Rooms were great and the service was excellent. Breakfast in the morning was really good and the fact that it's a small hotel meant the staff were always around to help. Front desk was very accommodating and the fish dishes on the menu were great.

Positives: - Very attentive and helpful staff! - Good restaurant, worth enjoying a seafood dinner there - Fort Kochi location is good and the rooms very nice - Can probably find a cheaper 3star hotel in the area, but the hotel is really worth the extra bit per night Negatives: - Acutally only the WiFi signal, which was very weak...

Tissa's Inn offers large rooms with tasteful decor, efficient air conditioning, comfortable beds, and a convenient, visible location. But what most stands out are the people. They are warm and positive, and unlike so many hotel staffs in India, they don't allow their helpfulness to become intrusive. Edward, the manager, is professional, down-to-earth, and personable. For example, when I decided... More

While most hotels would have been welcome after 10 days 'in the wilds' in the Western Ghats, Tissa's was exceptional. The hotel itself is beautifully designed with delightful decor and engaging pieces of art and sculpture throughout. Tissa's is very well positioned for easy access to Fort Kochi and Mattancherry. Our room (number 7) was superb and all meals were... More

Fort Kochi was our final stop before returning home and we were pleasantly surprised with beautiful Tissa's Inn. We were given a free upgrade to a superior double room which was very clean, cool and comfortable.
