This is a medium class hotel with good facilities. Rooms fairly large but quite dark. Good comfortable beds. Very clean hotel. Lovely staff which haven't changed from last year. Close to town. Totally safe area. Lovely rooftop restaurant for breakfast

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...

We stayed in Hotel Arches for a night and we loved it! It's located on not so busy street in Fort Kochi, surrounded with small local shops, bars and cafes. The rooms are tastefully done, large, very clean and comfortable. Delicious breakfast is served on a roof top terrace (toast, jams, fresh fruit, eggs...). The service was excellent and very...

Really nice, clean, spacious rooms with excellent hospitality. It is just a few yards from the beach and bang in the middle of touristy area of Fort Kochi . Loved it. Breakfast is awesome with a wide variety. Lunch and dinner, though a little more expensive than roadside stalls, is much better in quality, quantity and taste so the extra...

A friend and I spent two nights at that hotel, located in a quiet street in Fort Kochi, near one of the main churches. The reception was very friendly. The room was comfortable and properly equipped with A/C and wifi, very clean and, since it opened in the back, noise free. Breakfast was served on a terrace on the last...

We recently stayed at this hotel and are more than satisfied.We arrived in the very early morning hours very tired after long flight and were welcomed with juice and the staff did all to get our room ready as soon as possible. Breakfast on the roof terrace is also recommend. Overall, definitely a good choice when staying in Cochin!

We stayed for a week over Christmas and were impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the hotel and our rooms on the second floor at the front were spacious and comfortable. The hotel were sensitive to all our needs and would thoroughly recommend it as a small hotel, in a quiet street, whilst right in the...

Located at a walkable distance from every major attraction at Fort Kochi this beautiful colonial bungalow made into a hotel is a blend of class, comfort and pampering at a really affordable price. The breakfast buffet is simple but sumptuous. Loved everything about the stay here. Very minor negligible glitch - some of the restaurant staff are curt to you...
