Bang in the middle of the busiest road (I think) of Pondicherry, you will find The International Guest House - non-assuming, simple and no nonsense. After much questioning and checking, I was welcomed. The room was just right for a single person with an academic aim (I was visiting for a Sanskrit language course). Clean sheets, table-chair-wardrobe, working a/c and... More

I booked this hotel online and found out to be very value for money. Loved the nearby areas and the location of the hotel is very good. Very easy accesible to main areas and very easy to locate. Nice breakfast and restuarnts nearby are also very good. Decent wait staff and clean rooms at budget cost.

Positives: Absolute value for money Located on the back end of the French quarter and central to all useful places Safe and Secure Clean even though a bit aged property. Actually the Old Wing looks newer than the New Wing Negatives: Nothing of note. The furniture in new wing is quite dated. Check in of 2pm and checkout of 12pm... More

We stayed at the international guest house in pondicherry. The only reason we booked it was that an AC room costed just Rs 600/-. But it was very basic room. I think the guest house is a no frills place which is just okay for the backpack travellers. Families should avoid this. This property is run by Sri aurobindo ashram... More
