The hotel is a lovely building nestled in the heart of Fort Kochin in walking distance to everything you want to see in Kochi. And the room is big, comfortable with a great bed. The pool is also a nice little oasis on the roof. Had a delicious meal there prepared by their Chef Jerry you'll want to try their... More

Tissa's Inn is a small, friendly hotel in a very central location in Fort Kochi. We spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms are large and comfortable, the restaurant is good, and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The pool on the roof is small, but the shaded area around it is a lovely place to sit on... More

Due to the currency situation while I was in Kerala I had to lengthen my stay at Tissa's - and I'm so glad I did! It was a really wonderful place to stay - very central - my room was large and light (with great lighting) my bathroom modern and super-clean, and the rest of the hotel beautifully furnished with...

The staff were so helpful with organising pick up from airport during taxi strike, booking train tickets and resolving cash issues with money change. We also had a cooking lesson with jerry the chef one lunch time which was great. Enjoyed the meals we had there. Pool area was not big but clean and tidy. Too hot to sit there... More

One of the finest stay in Fort Kochi. I believe that whenever we travel we want to stay in a location from where most of the tourist destinations are nearby. Tissa's Inn is perfectly located. Few churches like St. Francis church and Santa Cruz Basilica is at a walking distance. The jetty is also a walk of 15mins away from... More

Tissa's Inn was an amazing respite from the hustle and bustle of Fort Kochi. They greeted us with a smile and a great Passion Fruit soda as the staff took our bags to the room. The room was well appointed; clean and neatly furnished. The pool and rooftop provided a nice way to cool off after exploring the city. One... More

Friendly welcoming staff at the hotel. Great location within walking distance of major tourist attractions like the Chinese fishing Nets (about 1.3klm). Room clean and comfortable and included breakfast. We were in Kochi during the recent change to the Indian currency (Rs500 & Rs1000 stopped being legal tender overnight). The hotel staff were lovely and offered to walk with us... More
