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

Quiet little gem in the middle of Fort Kochi, convenient to all the places we wanted to see. Our room, although quite cosy, was very good, clean and an excellent bathroom, perfectly adequate for our needs. The rooftop terrace restaurant was a delight for bird-watching. We only ate breakfast and a great lemon cake; lack of alcohol not a problem... More

The hotel provides me a good quality budget stay that ensures a clean hotel with light airy rooms with modern facilities and brought along by the friendliest and helpful staff. Hot water that works and regular change of crisp and clean sheets was just perfect and all that I could wish for a good stay experience. I stayed there for... More

We stayed for 1 night in the suite and were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is clean, well maintained and has character. The air conditioning worked well. The suite is lovely and guarantees a front facing room with balcony. It was a very pleasant stay and excellent value.
