if u r tight on your budget and going to pondi with 5-6 people in a group, you can go for this hotel. though the lane where the hotel stands, is kind of uncomfortable, but it doesnt matter. just 5 minutes walk from the bus stand. overall, a comfortable stay for college students. :)

The stay was great and comfortable. It is a decent budget hotel. Though it was 24 hour checkout, manager allowed us to checkout by 3pm as there wasn't any booking on that weekday. We booked AC Deluxe room for 4 guests. We were given a two room apartment, which also had a dining area. There was refrigerator in both rooms,... More

Located a little in the smaller streets of Pondicherry. Parking for your own vehicle may be a small issue but the service it very good. Helpful, humble staff. If you are in this city for just a stay and not depending on the hotel's food/restaurant it's a very good place. A great budget hotel.

Arriving by train at five thirty in the morning in the pouring rain, we stayed at the Raj Residency, based on the recommendation of a rickshaw driver. The place was very clean with good beds and pillows, cable tv, and a fridge. But the next day, the manager really blew it when he decided to wake us up at 8... More

I visited Pondy on 15/10/13. Before that I checked the reviews and hotel was looking fine but its worthless to stay there. A/C was not working. Room are full of mosquitoes. Not good service. Location was not good. Most of you can afford but no value for money. Truly WORTHLESS.
