We had a very enjoyable stay in this charming hotel right at the heart of Fort Kochi. The hotel is a beautifully renovated building situated in a quaint old street, just a stone's throw away from all the major attractions in Fort Kochi. There are boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, old churches nearby which could be visited by just taking a... More

We booked Arches online & had some problems in paying it. So we called them, the minute they answered the phone they were so helpful. They advised not to worry about the payment & offered to collect us from the airport! What service & we hadn't even checked in! Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm smile & our... More

Used this hotel to eat at as the hotel we stayed at didn't provide an evening meal, tour operator, citrus holidays paid for the evening meal. Lots of choice, very well cooked, staff very attentive. Citrus holidays paid for four courses plus drinks and tea/coffee but staff were more than happy for you to swap and change as you liked.

The location of this hotel was great.. The hotel is close to the water and a large park, as well as multiple cultural programs that are within walking distance. My room was clean, large and comfortable. The hotel is well run, and the hosts were readily available to help obtain tickets to cultural programs, assist with directions, etc. The weather... More

This small hotel is ideally situated for access to the tourist areas of Fort Cochin, as described by other reviewers. We arrived off an early morning flight to a warm reception, a lovely spacious clean room and refreshing shower. A perfect start to our holiday. The property has an old colonial feel, with dark wooden floors and panels, and rooms... More

There is a home-away-from-home feel to this beautiful, warm, friendly little hotel. Outstanding location in the heart of old Fort Cochin, amid must-see attractions, restaurants and shops. Highly recommended.

I booked online direct with the hotel and because I was arriving late at night organised with them for a transfer. Everything went perfectly. When I arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning I got a warm welcome and refreshing drink. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the roof was good, and I... More

Exactly as the pictures! In an old colonial style building. The bedrooms had a warm home feel to it along with the staff. On arrival we extended our stay by one day and without a worry the staff changed our room so that we didn't have to change rooms the following day. Perfect location, close to the ferrys, restaurant, princess... More
