Les Hibiscus is a beautiful property located in the white town side. It was actually an old governors bungalow and has still been maintained that way giving it a super quaint feel. There are only a few rooms, all woody and filled with antique furniture and pieces -it totally transports you to another world! The bfast in the morning is... More

I'm not at all surprised that Les Hibiscus is the top ranking B&B in Pondicherry! Location is perfect, rooms are immaculate, breakfast is fabulous and management amazing. Nothing is too much trouble for your host - Bascarone - who is happy to help with where to eat, onward travel arrangements and shopping. A wonderfully relaxing atmosphere in a traditional Pondicherry... More

It is an Old French raj time bungalow converted into a guest house. It has four double and one single room. an amazing blend of Franco- Tamil get up, it gives... More

This gets my vote for the best value rooms on our Indian adventure. Well appointed rooms with antiques everywhere. A very good breakfast. Well located - peaceful and quiet although just a short stroll from the sea front. Lovely people.

We spent Christmas 2014 in Pondicherry. Les Hibiscus was a wonderful place to call home for the holiday. High ceilings and tasteful furniture give this home stay a sophisticated feel. We stayed in the small room on the roof. The little patio was the perfect place to have a beer and enjoy the late afternoon. The staff was warm and... More

It was amazing to stay at Les Hibiscus. Its in one of the quietest lanes of White town which is a blessing if you plan to stay the weekends there. The staff absolutely sincere and helpful and even though they cannot converse in fluent hindi or english, they still try to help you out and make you as comfortable as... More

Huge room with great fans providing nice cool breeze. Strong hot shower and comfortable bed. The hotel building is a lovely old colonial style filled with plants and interesting knick knacks. Helpful staff gave us tips for the rest of our trip. Would highly recommend!

Les Hibiscus lived up to its excellent reputation. My husband and I, senior citizens, stayed here for 4 room nights from 26th November, 2015 in the twin bed room on the ground floor. Besides the excellent continental breakfast with fresh squeezed juice, choice of cut fruit, yogurt etc, there is also dosa and chutney for the Indian palate. Fabulously maintained... More

This charming Pondicherry villa located right in the heart of the French Quarter has been turned into a beautiful five-room hotel. My family and I in the two rooms on the first floor. One of the rooms overlooked the street and the other look on to the hotel back courtyard. Both rooms opened on to a beautiful, airy dining room.... More

This is our second stay in this place after a gap of 4 years. The standards were excellent then and I don't know how they managed it but it felt even better this time. We got two rooms on the ground floor - spacious, high ceiling rooms took us back to the best of the colonial era. The attention to... More
