The hotel was selected based on Trip advisor reviews. The room was a bit small though it's facility was matching that of 3 star's. I was bit surprised to find that the property didn't have parking. But I discovered later that most of heritage property around was similar with no parking. Location wise it was very ideal with all attractions... More

Located in the centre of Cochin, near St.Francis Church, Chinese nets and Princess Street. Nice colonial style hotel, comfortable rooms and very kind staff. The rooftop terrace is fantastic at breakfast time. The area is safe and very quiet.

I was traveling to Fort Kochi with a friend for a short stay enroute to a wedding. Hotel Arches is a beautiful, quaint, and well-maintained hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by warm and friendly staff with a welcome drink. Our room was clean, and bathroom spotless. The AC and fan worked, though the power generator occasionally went off for...

I booked this hotel because of its very high reviews. So I expected a lot. Well, the location is great. Bang in Fort Kochi, there is so much to do around and so many good places to eat to choose from. The rooms are clean and service is Ok. But the dinner buffet wasn't good. Breakfast was passable. The hotel... More

Stayed here for 2nights in the pleasant Fort Kochi. The rooms were very comfortable and the managers were very friendly and helpful with information. Was a lovely place to come back to after a day exploring! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend!

We were to stay here for the last 2 nights of our Indian adventure. What a disappointment. The hotel was dark and the rooms were dark and uninviting. We had a balcony with an awful view of a backstreet. We arrived quite late and food was being served in the restaurant by reception which was more like a cafeteria. We... More

A nice conversion of a very old colonial house on four floors with a beautiful wooden central staircase (and no lift - if you're not as nimble as you used to be). In a quiet area of Fort Cochin it's literally just minutes from shops, attractions, and restaurants. Our room was comfortable with a nice bathroom, and air conditioning -... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and found the rooms and facilities to be of a high standard. Staff were helpful and friendly especially when we wanted food when the restaurant was closing. They were happy to oblige. The breakfast is served in a roof top restaurant but is very basic and choice is limited. The stairs could be problematic... More

We had a comfortable stay here for one night. The hotel is excellently situated in Fort Kochi near restaurants, the beach, shops, the Chinese fishing nets. The rooms are nice. The roof terrace for breakfast is a pleasant setting. The restaurant wasn't great but maybe they had an off day, and the roof terrace wasn't open for dinner for some... More
