Lovely room with a small balcony. Communal areas also really nice including rooftop area where breakfast was served. Very welcoming, especially on arrival when we were given fresh coconut juice. We booked our outward taxi through them which was very reasonable and reliable

This hotel was a great starting point for us. The room was large with a lovely balcony, it had all the amenities that you should need. We had lunch in their restaurant which was one of the best meals that we ate whilst in India. Great service in a great location. It is in the perfect location to get to... More

It was a great pleasure to find the comfort of Hotel Arches after an arduous journey and Mr. Rajneesh and Mr Godson were both the model of courtesy and helpfulness. My husband and I stayed there for several days and were able to see the old St Francis church from our balcony. The simple breakfast on the rooftop felt just... More

As we'd visited Cochin before, we knew we wanted to be close to the action instead of staying in a daggy homestay away from the water's edge. The Arches is neat and tidy and the staff is very obliging. We were a little incredulous that many of the hotels are 'dry', as was this one - we'd been on the... More

The rooms are comfortable if unremarkable in the Arches. It's clean, the staff are friendly and it's in a good location near the sights and restaurants without being on top of them. Breakfast is adequate for a small hotel and it's pleasant to eat it in the rooftop restaurant. Dinner was less good and there were lots of mosquitoes around.

We only stayed here briefly for one night on our way from Delhi to Munnar, but the room (and especially the bathroom) was immaculate and comfortable. The staff were very on-point and attentive. Short walk from Chinese fishing nets and other experiences around Fort Kochin, great location for this area. Really beautiful building, rooms. The breakfast was pretty good, nothing... More

This is a great choice in Fort Cochin. People of the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Room was big and comfortable. Do notg expect 5 star facility though. This is more a family run hotel that is showing wear down in some places. Breakfast is basic. Air-co in the room is noisy However, these are small things and the... More

The location of this hotel is great. Just a short walk to Vasco da Gama Square and the Chinese Fishing Nets. The price was right for the comfort afforded. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The buffet breakfast would benefit from a bit more variety, but the quality was fine and they prepared fresh omelettes upon request. Overall, we... More

We spent a few days here after recommendation from the owner who also owns Fort Abode in Fort Kochi. The location really makes this hotel a great place to stay in a quiet historic heritage side street, which is very atmospheric in the the mornings with the sellers calling their wares for sale. Peace & Quiet at night though. The... More

Initially, we didn't aware how convenient this hotel's location was, finally we figured out, but it was too late, we had to leave, wish to stay in this hotel again next time! First good impression was the friendly and hospitably of crew in this hotel, they greeted us with fragrance jasmine flowers garland, and sweet coconut juice, you immediately feel... More
