Les Hibiscus is Lonely Planet's top pick and with good reason. It is incredible value for $60 AUS (2900Rs) a night. Bascarane and Gladys (and Saskela who serves breakfast) as well as the night watchman and housekeepers, all take the greatest care to do everything for you to make your stay lovely. Fresh towels each day, tea and coffee making... More

Les Hibiscus really deserved #1 ranking in BnB@Pondy, the moment i arrived the mustard colour Les Hibiscus @ the French Quarter after 3.5 hours bus ride from Madras, i feel very much welcome by the staff, & waited little while for Mr Bascarane as he was having lunch outside. I stayed at the roof top room with nice view of... More

Spent three nights at the beautiful hotel in a peaceful location close to all major attractions. We had a room on the ground floor which was large and had french doors to a small private courtyard. Lovely antique bed although I found the mattress very hard and the pillows a bit flat. Bathroom was a good size with thoughtful additional... More

This is an excellent place! A wonderful guest house, with warm staff! It is located in White Town, and is walking distance from the Sea front and all the good places to eat. The owner, Mr. Bascarane, is a wonderful host and is very helpful. He will guide you on all things to do in the town and provide you... More

One of the nicest places we have stayed. Huge comfortable room and bathroom which has been perfectly restored as has the entire building. The breakfast was something really special which we looked forward to each morning. The owner is a really caring and helpful man, on the day we left he came with us to the bus station and made...

Les Hibiscus is a small hotel in the French Quarter of Pondicherry. The rooms are beautifully presented with 4 poster beds and lovely furnishings. All the staff are wonderful and helpful and the breakfast is very good. On the evening before we were due to check out I was struck down by Delhi Belly, the owner, Bascarane, directed us to... More

We stay for 2 days in leshibiscus. Rooms are too big for my 2 kids to play, interior is very unique and the way Mr. Bascarane has maintained the property is really appriciable. Breakfast was also good,i highly recommended this when you are looking something in a reasonable budget.

Me and a bunch of friends chose to stay in les hibiscus solely due to the tripadvisor reviews. We were more than surprised to see that this tiny hotel is one of the best decisions we made for our trip! The hotel is remarkably clean (trust me when I say clean coz I have an OCD!), beautifully designed and extremely... More
