An excellent hotel strategically located in historic fort area. The staff is very cordial, room service is very quick. Room are well maintained, capacious and all the amenities provided are wonderful. European BF served (included in the package) was delicious. Many tourist spots like Vascodagama Church, Mattancherry Palace, Jewish Synagogue, Chinese fishing nets, Beach etc. are within walking distance. One... More

The service I received here is the best I have ever experienced (and I include top 5 star hotels in that). When we arrived early we were checked in straight away and even offered breakfast, despite not officially starting our stay until the afternoon. A good start! The hotel then went out of their way to help us plan our... More

Everything about this hotel was excellent: it was on a quiet street but right in the middle of the historic fort area. The room was spacious and relaxing with a comfortable bed, good pressure and heat in the shower, and even a day bed/reading nook next to a big window. The staff were polite and extremely helpful. They even arranged... More

The Hotel Arches is the best hotel with best location. All the places are very close by from the hotel. Very clean, good services and good BF. The manager Mr. Goddson is very co-operative and helpful. Mr. tomy at the restaurant is very good, in the sense of taking order at the BF table and serving it in the same... More

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.
