Relaxing and quiet location with many shops and restaurants nearby. Walking distance to many tourist locations. Friendly staff and nice rooftop restaurant.

A really nice little hotel in Kochi. Room was a decent size and the staff were very good. Location was excellent - just a block to the chinese fishing nets and all the shops. There was no bar fridge in the room but this would be my only complaint.

It was a pleasure to stay in this hotel. It has a rooftop restaurant with a good view. Service is the best selling point of this hotel. It is in a good location.

    Beautiful and quaint hotel”
    I was traveling to Fort Kochi with a friend for a short stay enroute to a wedding. Hotel Arches is a beautiful, quaint, and well-maintained hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by warm and friendly staff with a welcome drink. Our room was clean, and bathroom spotless. The AC and fan worked, though the power generator occasionally went off for a minute or two (but this was the norm in a lot of other buildings I was in in that area. Nonetheless, I gave Facilities only 4 stars for this but it's only a slight annoyance that subsequently became endearing). On our last day in Fort Kochi, we had a late night flight. The hotel staff let us check-out way past our check-out time and allowed us the use of the restaurant bathroom, and hotel lounge. They tried in every way to make us comfortable. They also helped arrange our taxis to and from the hotel. Everything ran smoothly. The location of Hotel Arches is AWESOME. It's only steps away from streets after streets of hipster cafes, craft stores, and the beach. The hotel restaurant has excellent food, I think better than many of the restaurants in the area. I tried the breakfast masala and plain dosas (not listed on menu but available), Kerala chicken curry, Kerala fish curry, and the special Kerala fish grill wrapped in banana leave. All of them were delicious, and made with very high quality ingredients (chicken breast meat and chunky thick fish fillets were used). Although the weather was crappy when I was in Fort Kochi, the hospitality of the staff of Hotel Arches and the charm of the architecture made our stay an extremely pleasant one.

    Average hotel but expensive and overrated. WIFI not set up properly so kept dropping with intermittent service. We moved rooms twice- 1st AC didn't work, 2nd had no natural light window faced brick wall v noisy as next to kitchens. Have had better in Homestays for 3rd of the price!

    The manager was very helpful giving us complimentary breakfast even though we had not paid for it. he also organised our early morning taxi to the airport. The hotel is lovely - lots of dark reddish wood - tea in room, air conditioning, comfortable bed. Lots of restaurants nearby.

    Clean. Great location. Awesome staff!
    Our stay at Hotel Arches was awesome. Check in was fast and easy. Breakfast on the room top patio was very peaceful and relaxing. The pineapple dosa was good! We had to go to the airport in the morning before the free breakfast was available and they packed us a breakfast to go. Free waters and a great location. Close to the action that we walked everywhere, yet far enough away to be quiet.

    Helpful staff, great location, comfortable room
    Peaceful, pleasant hotel with friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Excellent location, only a few minutes walk to the shore and the Chinese fishing nets, as well as many restaurants. Staff were helpful and supplied a packed breakfast as well as booking a taxi to the airport when I was checking out at 5am. Breakfast was fine, nothing spectacular, but served on the very pleasant covered roof terrace. They don't have a license due to being so close to the church, but they are OK with you bringing in drinks from outside if you want. (At the time of writing the alcohol licensing situation in Kerala is all in flux anyway.)

    Comfortable hotel, good value, close to historical sights in Fort Cochin. The hotel is a stone throws away from the major tourism spots like St Francis Church, Chinese fishing nets, Princess street and shopping area. Rooms are comfortable and good size. Has wifi connectivity. Bfast is limited, not a buffet, but good.
