Had a great stay here. Staff very helpful and friendly. Within walking distance to many sights in Fort Kochi. Room comfy and good a/c. Restaurant was very good with a breakfast buffet. Thank you for a lovely quiet place after sight seeing.

This is a comfortable hotel with friendly service in the middle of Cochin, ideal for sightseeing. The food was great; breakfast buffet, served on the roof, was varied and nicely cooked. Evening meals in the downstairs restaurant were also excellent and offered very good value.

Our room was beautifully comfortable, well furnished with a high standard functional bathroom, not always the case in India! The reception area was a bit cramped and the large empty dining room was not inviting. This was not a problem as there were so many restaurants close by. However breakfast on the roof terrace was great. The staff were very...

Hotel Arches is right in the heart of Fort Kochin, minutes away from the harbour and Chinese fishing nets, art galleries, shops, and all. A brilliant location; a fairly standard hotel, with most of the rooms similar to each other; some rooms can be dark but the hotel is part of a terrace of town buildings, so windows are only...

The Arches is a lovely little hotel, close to shops, restaurants and tourist sights such s the Chinese fishing nets. The rooms are comfortable, especially the suite. Everything is kept nice and clean. The breakfast on the rooftop restaurant was lovely. The manager and staff were all friendly, kind and helpful during our stay.

We just loved the Hotel Arches. It was small, cozy, quaint and intimate, perfect for an island hotel. The room was small but sufficient enough for the two of us for one night. There was a nice bathroom and Indian style shower. There was a large shower curtain and wand to sweep the water towards the drain. Our son stayed...

My room 105 was like a dungeon--albeit clean and well appointed, and yes the staff are absolutely lovely, no complaints here at all. I had to set the alarm because I couldn't tell when it was morning. It was depressing, really dark, had no have the light on in the middle of the day. At night it was dark as...
