I booked a three night stay at Tissa's Inn based on trip advisor reviews and my expectations based on the reviews led to some disappointments. It's got a great location and a lovely staff with one exception. At breakfast I felt very pressured by the chef to make a commitment for dinner which I finally resisted for my final night....

This is an intimate hotel with just eight rooms and a good restaurant. It also has a pool on the roof. It is in the Fort Kochi area and is about ten minutes walk from the famous Chinese fishing nets and the walking area along the bank. We went for the Kochi biennale and it could not have been better...

Tissa's Inn is well located in Cochin and only minutes walk away from the shops, restaurants and Chinese Fishing Nets. The people at Tissa's Inn were extremely helpful and the two receptionists were absolutely charming. The restaurant had a wide choice and the chef was open to all suggestions if you gave him sufficient notice. He organised our evening family...

Tissa's is a top hotel in a fabulous Kerala city. Try booking via a local Indian travel agent as the Web booking is designed for "foreigners" and is not indicative of the best prices. The chef will buy your fish and prawns after you order at breakfast. Great service and boy can that man cook. A bit Pricey compared to...

Stayed here for three nights. The room was big and very clean. The staff were extremely helpful, meeting every request immediately - which I hope is reflected in their pay. They did however give us space as well. The roof top pool is a real oasis in a very busy town - It's quiet, not overlooked and the staff are...

A lovely old building with just nine rooms. We stayed two nights at the beginning and end of a week's tour. The hotel was in a good location, central without being noisy. We could easily walk to all local attractions. The pool and chill out area on the roof were great for escaping the heat of the day. We had...

The room was perfect with air con, a lovely rain shower and a comfortable bed, our breakfast...

A well presented small hotel with helpful staff located within a short walk of the harbour and the main Kochi attractions. Clean room with comfortable bed and decent shower room. Nice roof terrace with a small pool and plenty of shade. We found it just the place for our last two nights.

I recently spent 2 nights at Tissa's Inn, which one might classify as a small boutique hotel. The location couldn't be better, enabling me to explore Fort Cochin on foot in all directions. The property is maintained at an exceptional standard of cleanliness, my room was spotless. The room was very comfortable and well-appointed, although not luxurious. A surprise benefit...
