Hotel Arches was recommended by the airport travel desk at Kochi airport, the 40 min taxi ride to the hotel was exciting and on arrival at the hotel which is situated down a quiet back street , the manager met us with a garland for our necks and a smile.
The hotel is a lovely medium priced hotel with a roof terrace eating area overlooking st Francis church and a distant view of the big ships navigating their way into kochi harbour and docks.
Our room was clean and had plenty of space for our luggage, aircon worked fine and had a tv and tea and coffee facilities too.
It was only a short walk to the coastal strip that has the Chinese fishing nets and nic nac stalls selling locally made bangles and sun hats.
There are other hotels in the area but for the short time we stayed in kochi this hotel was fine.
