We stayed in the Arches in September 2012 for 4 weeks. We often travel to India and stay in Kochi, but a hotel experience was new to us. The staff were amazingly helpful in many respects including booking taxis, organising trips and facilitating whatever we requested. Above all,the staff were warm and so friendly and we were hugely impressed by them.The hotel has 10 bedrooms and a a wonderful rooftop restaurant which made breakfast in particular special. All the rooms are above ground floor.The best rooms are those overlooking the street, which have balconies.Staff were available day and night and we felt very safe. The hotel is central to all the shops, restaurants,bars,travel agents and bookshops and the seashore including the Chinese nets. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Fort Cochin, both those who are new to India and seasoned travellers. As a small boutique hotel, this is unbeatable.
