Conveniently located in the heart of Fort Cochin, Hotel Arches is a clean and simple property that offers good value for money. It’s also a mere 10 minute walk from St Francis Church. With only 11 rooms, the hotel feels intimate and has all the comforts expected in a 3* hotel. The Deluxe Rooms are fairly small but adequate with red tiled floors, traditional furniture and modern bathrooms. The Suites are larger with a separate living area and a bathtub. Expect to find attentive and hospitable staff and rooms without too many frills. The roof top international restaurant offers something rare in Cochin and the location means guests can simply explore Fort Cochin on foot, without the need for a driver in the evenings. We feel that Hotel Arches is a good and affordable hotel in the heart of Fort Cochin. It is ideal for those who can live without the stylish interiors of nearby boutique hotels, which tend to be more expensive.
