We stayed here for on an overnight trip to Pondicherry. The hotel has bit of an early 90s ambience to it. The rooms were 'ok', toilet was clean, bed was average, nothing exceptional. I personally felt like the rooms are a little overpriced. The hotel is walkable distance beach and a nearby temple.

I stayed here with family in last dec 2013 just after Christmas. So the price was too high. But it is an average hotel with low cost. It's been 1 km from the pondycherry beach. Clean and situated near road.

Pros - cheap - we paid 600 rs per night; just on the outside of the interesting part of Pondi so it makes a good base to wander; it has its own bar that serves hot and cold food and snacks, a good place to meet the locals; quiet location; staff were helpful when I explained my hot water was...

We stayed at the Aruna Hotel for two nights, since we were travelling at low budget and simply needed a cheap room. The staff is extremely unfriendly and was not even willing to help when we had a medical emergency, although they proclaimed to have a doctor available on request. The non a/c double room was 600 rupees w/o breakfast,... More
