Had a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel. I and my husband enjoyed some very relaxing moments here. Beautifully located, near the St.Francis Church, the Dutch cemetery and the sea; Hotel Arches made our stay extraordinary! Courteous and warm staff, good food and service at a reasonable rate were some highlights here.

The position of this hotel is excellent - right in the middle of Fort Cochin and a short walk from the fishing nets. Room was large, well appointed and well kept. Bathroom was good although I think it needs decorating (we were near the end of the season so perhaps it is planned). Dinner on the roof was good -... More

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. They helped organise a backwater trip for us which was great and overall provided excellent service with a smile. We highly recommend this hotel except for those who can't climb stairs.

I couldn't decide whether to give the Arches 3 or 4 stars but I settled on 4 because I do think it is good for the price we paid - we booked last minute and paid around 3000rupees. I understand it may normally be double this, in which case we would have been disappointed. There are lots of positives. The... More

In the heart of Fort Kochi, this is a superbly clean and friendly hotel. Very comfortable rooms with wifi. Friendly staff. Excellent food. My room was at the back, overlooking quiet greenery. Loved it.

Hotel Arches was a great choice, the hotel is nice and in a good location. However what made our stay was how reliable and personable the staff were. Prior to arrival they helped me with some arrangements which made my life much easier. We had organised a couple of transfers with them as well, and having failed to re-confirm the... More
