I quite enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was very generously sized, with a separate sitting room and the decor was tasteful (as long as you like the old-English aesthetic.. my husband didn't like the dark timbers and antiquated feel of it so much). Service was fine. We arrived late at night and someone was there to let... More

Its in a very good location, close to the fishing nets. Everything is nearby in Fort Kochi. Rooms were good size, well appointed and well kept. Bathroom seems to be renovated recently and were fantastic and clean. We stayed in the large 'Nidra' room. What floored us here was the service. Rajneesh and Godson are very warm and helpful people.... More

I have stayed here for a day and the hotel is centrally located in Fort Cochin. It's a 5 min walk to the beach and 3 mins to the famous Kashi cafe. You can just walk to Chinese fishing nets and spice market. The staff at front desk are very helpful and gave us the local map. We had an... More

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.
