We stayed 2 nights here. We were amazed by the interior decos here. Its tastefully done. This is a boutique hotel with few rooms. The staff are always ready to serve and very helpful. I love my room which is in ground floor. Its very clean. Jackfruit, the restaurant which is inside the building itself. Please do try the foods...

A nice place with a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and roomy, and the food in the restaurant was tasty. The hotel is nicely decorated with local antiquities, and on the roof there is a nice and cool swimming pool.

Tissa's Inn is a lovely place to stay. I really can't find anything negative to say about it. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean rooms, nice breakfast. The location is great, five minutes' walk from the Chinese fishing nets. The staff are all helpful and friendly and there's even a pool.

We have been traveling between Chennai to Cochin by car and stayed in 7 different hotels, all parallel in cost to the Tissa's Inn. Tissa's Inn was clearly the best out of all! Huge and comfortable rooms, facinating atmosphere with roof pool and antiques statue and pictures. Excellant breakfast and most important - smiling faced from all staff. Aighly recommended!!!

We visited Cochin about 2 years ago to visit friends over Christmas break--we only had a few nights in Fort Cochin, and were referred to Tissa's Inn by a local travel agent. It was fairly new at the time and so there was little information/reviews on the web. We met KP Francis who was super nice and even gave us...

Tissa's Inn was my first stop on a trip to India with my partner and family and what a wonderful way to be introduced to the country!
