Only stayed one night and would have stayed longer but they were fully booked. Nice clean room, 2 twin beds and what felt like the best shower ever, Our previous home stay had a horrible bathroom! Great location, right in the middle of everything. Nice roof terrace for breakfast, which was pretty basic. Cereal, toast, bananas and omelettes.

We have been staying at the Arches (infrequently) since it first opened and it has never let us down. They have maintained their standards of cleanliness, the staff are keen to help and the location is ideal. The rooms are generous- our friends were upgraded to a large suite, but our room was quite adequate, quiet, well-equipped and spotless. The... More

To qualify our heading, this 3 star rated hotel can certainly squeeze into the 4 star bracket. After a very long and weary journey, we arrived and the manager greeted us with a garland flower necklace each as a welcome. And as we sat down in Reception a fresh coconut each with a straw for us to refresh our palates.... More

I have stayed in Hotel Arches many times. I love its smallness, old world charm, personal service and excellent location. You can walk everywhere. They have an excellent rooftop for restaurants and there are many other places to choose within walking distance. Good wi fi and service makes for a perfect little hotel.

we stayed here for three nights before our tour started. This was our first time to India and we found this hotel and area very safe and welcoming. Staff were very helpful. Lots of restaurants , sights and shops in walking distance. Nice roof top breakfasts.

The staff here are so friendly and helpful, no request is too much! We brought watermelon from street vendors, and one kitchen staff member cut it all for us and brought it to our room. Breakfast was on rooftop, simple but tasty, toast, omelette (choose masala it's really good), coffee&tea. For lunch, the restaurant of the hotel was jam packed... More

A small scale hotel in a quiet street close to everything in Fort Kochi. Breakfast was a bit basic - best to have the Indian breakfast options as the Western breakfasts could have been improved. The rooftop restaurant/breakfast bar was a very pleasant space to sit awhile. We like the dominance of polished wood around the hotel as this added... More

This hotel is excellently situated -in the old town just a few minutes stroll to see the Chinese fishing nets. Our room was spacious and clean. Really enjoyed the breakfast served on the roof top. What sets this hotel apart is the service. This was our first hotel in a trip round Southern India. My wife wasn't that well on... More

Charming small hotel, perfect location in the old town. Well furnished, clean, friendly staff. Simple breakfast served on rooftop. Would definitely recommend. We didn't have room with balcony but it was spacious with lovely bathroom.
