Hotel Arches is conveniently located in the center of the tourist restaurants & stores. It's also walking distance from the jetty to catch the ferry to Ernakulum. The hotel is nice & quiet, staff is helpful, & the rooms are very clean. I mostly noticed guesthouses around the area as alternatives if you're looking for a cheaper selection. The main... More

Our tour group of 16 people stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It is conveniently located very close to shops (selling all manner of Indian handicrafts) and to numerous restaurants. It's a 3 minute walk to the waterfront where you can see fishermen using chinese fishing nets and then selling their catch. Also within easy walking distance are theaters that... More

This small hotel of 12 rooms is established in an old historic building, artistically decorated, and located on Rose Street just behind St Francis Church and close to many sites. The rooms are comfortable and equipped with good air-conditioning, a must for Cochin, coffee maker, television etc. Staff are very friendly. Roof-top breakfast is quite adequate.

We stayed here for the first three nights on our first trip to India. Ideal location. Within blocks of the Chinese nets, and lots shops and alternative eateries. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff very responsive to requests and eager to please. We splurged and had the suite, which was very spacious and hugely comfortable. Great AC and Hot... More

Staff were extremely helpful and kind. Since we'd paid for breakfast at the hotel but were leaving in the morning for the airport, the staff kindly offered to pack our breakfast for us to eat on the road!!! We were very well looked after at this hotel!

Worst Hotel EVER, Sheets were dirty and slept in. There were hundreds of mosquitoes some living in the sheets. Avoid! Do not stay there, it is dirty and old and and what out ant redeeming qualities. My friend also had a separate room with the same experience!!!

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
