The hotel is very well run and is definitely at the top in it's class. It's a cool and calm place to stay and the staff are attentive, helpful and friendly.

From the friendly, eager-to-accommodate staff to the wonderfully-furnished and comfortable rooms, we have nothing but praise for Tissa's Inn. We love the location, which is close to the places we wanted to see, yet quiet and peaceful. The kitchen offerings were enjoyable, and the tasteful decor a feast for the eyes as well. We look forward to the next opportunity...

This elegant hotel makes your dreams come true. With all its amenities you feel like being in an other world. We've pased the last days of our trip to South India at Tissa's Inn and together with the arresting ambiance of Fort Cochin it was one of our highlights.
