A very pleasant stay in this hotel! The rooms were very clean, tv worked great, bathroom was great, absolutely no complaints! Breakfast was free and very very good in the morning. It was a buffet style. I would recommend this to everyone!

The friendliest hotel out of the 25+ we've stayed in our month in India. Price was reasonable, room was nice, the staff were very helpful, food was amazing, wifi could have been better but good wifi is tough to find in India! Walking distance to an array of bars, restaurants, a traditional Chinese fishing strip and a number of other... More

We ate lunch at the restaurant on July 17, 2015, while wandering around Fort Kochi with a friend from the U.S. The food was ok, given that we were hungry. The waiter was poorly trained and brought us things as and when he remembered them. The restaurant was empty when we came in and they couldn't bring all three of... More

Recently I visited Kochi with my mademoiselle and stayed at Hotel Arches in Fort Kochi. I am running short of metaphors of beauty to describe the awe of my short stay there. Food, people, back water, weather in middle of monsoon were abundant, plenty and extremely good. Hotel Arches was specially excellent in its decor, staff behaviour and rationality of... More

Hotel Arches is a beautiful hotel. Very nicely situated and has good amenities for the price you pay. It is definitely more than value for money. Breakfast is good and ample. Staff is prompt. The only probably drawback is the absence of 24hrs roomeservice
