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...

Had two nights here - fairly average hotel, nothing really bad , but nothing really great either. Breakfast was served on the roof, not the best choice but the masala dosas were nice. The room was clean but we slept near to the iron staircase to the restaurant - so a bit noisy in the mornings! Could do better.

We stayed here with a large group of people on the back end of a yoga retreat. The hotel was chosen by the organisers and they chose well. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the aircon and ceiling fans worked well. When you get to your room just turn the fans on to check that they run silently....

We stayed here after completing a tour of Kerala, finishing in Kochi. The hotel is quite ornate and has a yesteryear feeling to it. It is quite close to the Chinese Fishing Nets and other attractions like the Indo-Portuguese museum and basilica. The room was quite comfortable. The restaurant on the roof was a great spot to view the kochi...

We stayed at the Arches for one night. They accommodated us with almost no warning, the night before New Year's Eve, for which we were very grateful. They were efficient to deal with and our room was at the back away from the busy street, large, clean and quiet. Breakfast was on the roof terrace and good. The hotel staff...

The breakfast was good and plentiful however it is open air which is lovely except when the neighbours are burning rubbish and you get smoked out at breakfast. The location...
