I stayed at Raj Residency in April first week. My stay was comfortable. As am alone I took a single A/C room. Room & Bathroom were clean. AC, TV, Wifi everything worked fine. This hotel is at a walk-able distance from bus-stand. They don't have a Restaurant. Staff are very courteous. They helped me with directions, places to visit etc.,... More

The property is good. Rooms were small but quite okay for 2 people or a family of three. The staff was cooperative. They do not have a kitchen but there are many restaurants which would deliver the food of your choice.

We stayed at Raj Residency in Jan, a good time to visit Pondicherry. This also meant difficult to get accommodations at reasonable prices. Raj Residency is a complete budget place just opposite the bus stand, the lane which leads to the hotel is a bit off. However the staff is polite and helpful. They are very flexible with timings with... More

A good hotel very close to bus stand. Rooms are quite well. We were in a non a/c standard room, though it was also clean and beautiful with LCD tv. Bathroom is also very good. Service is also very helpful. Though there is no restaurant, but there are so many restaurants beside the hotel.

I generally have an idea that hotels near bus stand are not good, but this hotel changed my perception. Firstly the hotel is good with very well coordinating staff and well hospitality. I checked in at 6:00am though their check-in time is 12:00pm, they gave me 1 double bed room as per my booking immediately, and later gave another one... More

The hotel is under construction and very pathetic. No space for kids. I have booked a suite month back and when reached hotel on 26 Dec I was shocked to see how it is commanding a good rating in tripadvisor. I cancelled by booking and moved to a better hotel, not to mention at a higher price.

While the pictures on the website point at a slightly low budget stay, the experience was completely the opposite. The staff at the front desk were marvellous. I received a call on the day of my arrival, to confirm my booking and timings. On arrival, soaps and towels were provided. The rooms were extremely clean, drinking water was provided for... More

Full payment was taken at the time of check in. The a/c was dysfunctional. When police came for verification the hotel staff did not provide the proofs given at the time of check in.We were asked to show proofs. Seemed to look like the hotel just wanted money with no guarantee of safety of its guests. Conversations in one room... More

I selected the hotel based on the reviews and because it was close to the bus stand. I needed a room for very early in the morning and hence had called and booked in advance. True to promise the room was ready in the morning when we arrived. The staff are courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean and neatly... More
