Lots of beautiful spaces to choose from. Each suite has its own intimate day bed & lounge areas & large comfortable bedrooms with air conditioning and ceiling fans. Breakfast is served fresh under the rooftop verandah after you have had a wonderful sleep breathing in fresh Sea breezes. During festival times select front rooms, with a balcony. It was delightful to be able to see what is happening in the street below! Especially during the New Year festival period. A local family run business, with very caring, polite & helpful staff on hand to be of assistance. Wonderful location, with local hospitality!

This place is ideal for exploring Fort Kochi. It is centrally placed without being too noisy. The rooms were large and clean although the outlook is on to a wall which has very helpfully had a mural painted on it to brighten it up. The staff were super helpful and pleasant. We didn’t have breakfast as had to leave early the next day for a plane so cannot comment on that but they made us a packed breakfast. The restaurant attached is very popular and quite expensive for what it is but the food is very good. It is worth booking a table here as big groups seem to use it and you cannot assume you will get a seat.

In hotel Arches I found a nice accomodation with good location and infrastructure and especially very helpful and openminded people. I was very happy to stay there. I wish I could have stayed longer. The restaurant Rasoi nearby is another gem.

Located at the heart f the fort Kochi, Hotel Arches is one of the most accessible and beautiful properties I came across to stay with my family. Most importantly, the front desk gentlemen Mr. Neeraj, and Mr. Sali are gems of the person that I met. The two of them were very kind and cooperative throughout my trip; from arranging food at midnight to arranging a taxi for Munnar's trip these guys helped a lot. I highly recommend this hotel for someone traveling to Kochi with family or friends.

Fabulous location in the quiet streets walking distance to the fishing nets, shops and cafes of the area.

Had a really good stay at The Arches - good room, hot water, working TV, really lovely reception staff who went out of their way to help us in any way. And very friendly.

Breakfast was standard (eggs, fruit, toast, cereal plus spicy options) but plentiful.

Two things to note: we were initially given a room at the back which had the noise of the kitchen fan and generator from very early until late night. But we were moved after the first night with no problem to a street facing room - much quieter.

Also we believed (as per the hotel website) that there was a roof terrace restaurant. This was a deciding factor in choosing the hotel - but in fact this is a desolate storage area and not somewhere to sit and relax.

So despite the good points and great staff, when we return to Fort Cochin in a few weeks we have booked a different hotel. If you aren’t concerned about outdoor space, then highly recommend The Arches.

The Hotel excellently located. Room was clean & neat and very comfortable. The manager Neeraj was extremely helpful as was the staff. The hotel is in the area steeped in history; (Vasco House -of Vasco Da Gama is literally next door & Bastion House is a few minutes walk away). The Hotel building too was well maintained with a feel and ambience in tune with the surrounding historic legacy. Furnishing and bed were comfortable. What really was the icing on the cake was that every request was responded to positively and promptly.

I had booked a room in this hotel in mid July after reading some great reviews and it did not disappoint. The rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and all necessary amenities are provided. The staff is very responsive and helpful. The location of the place is also great. You have everything at walking distance. In conclusion, really happy with my experience there.

The accommodations, food, service, location are all Top Tier!! We also got extra help with a lost item from previous stay. The hotel staff went out of their way to help with phone calls, post information and constant care to keep us reassured. Fort Cochin itself is a wonderful historic and scenic, must-see destination for all travelers to India

Ambience and experience was excellent. Perfect location and kind staff. The interiors made us feel welcome; the furniture especially was thoughtfully chosen and placed. Hygienic rooms with soft clean beds, several books in the hallways to enjoy during the stay. Indoor plants abound.Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.

The location of the hotel is very good. The hotel could use some upgrade. There is no Elevator (Lift) so request a room in the first floor so you have to climb only one floor. The TV did not work and the shower controls were difficult to manage. The Rasoi restaurant food was very good. It was Okay for a one night stay. They arranged a Taxi to take us to the airport in the morning. They also gave a packaged breakfast since we left before the breakfast buffet opened.
