We booked the hotel pretty late in the night on our night long stay in pondicherry. The room was spacious and clean with a pseudo sea facing balcony, where you can see the sea only after some twisted neck and body alignments.

I went with my friends and it was a last minute plan to Pondy. We got rooms in this hotel for a better deal. Staffs were good. Rooms were kept clean. Best part is that it is very close to the beach. If you are planing to roam around and only to crash on bed,this is a best deal. Nothing... More

This hotel was not my first choice but i had a lovely room with a small balcony. The hotel is clean but average, okay for a short stay and comes at a decent price. The room rates excludes breakfast. It is a small hotel with only a few rooms that has a balcony. The balcony however is great, especially during... More

I found this hotel to have a good size room and decent bathroom. There was a balcony which was very small and surrounded by walls, but if you stretched your neck you could just see the sea. Not somewhere to sit out but to dry some clothes perhaps. Price was good and it's pon a street that's used often in... More

Was in this hotel for a day and a night. The price was reasonable, might cost you between 1,500 & 3,000. The staff were not very courteous. Dont ever ask the room service staff to get to food, they over charge you and never give you an bill for the food purchased, even if you request for one. The ac... More

Luck wasn't on our side as we stayed in this place on a long weekend. The front desk folks were rude and unpleasant. This includes the manager. They work with a 'we don't care attitude' probably because Pondicherry is always in Businesss, or probably it's a Tamilian thing. The rooms are simple and neat. The TVs were old. Good points:...

We stayed there for 2 nights and 3 days. The staff was arrogant, refused to see logic and were generally very unfriendly. The phone in the room was not working, flush in the toilet was dysfunctional. There was a time when the staff refused to give us fresh towels coz they had given us towels the previous day. It almost... More

The front office staff is truly horrible over here. I don't think they have heard of the term customer service. I told one that I'm keeping my bags at the reception and that i will be back in ten minutes and he tells me "Come fast. I'm going to sleep"! They act like they are doing you a favour by... More

We thought this would be a nice fairly reasonably priced hotel near the water. We weren't looking for luxury. We arrived to find our room flooded, the AC leaking water all over the floor. We wanted a different room but they cleaned it up and promised it would not be a problem again. They assured us that if it did,... More
