We planned an impulsive road trip to Pondicherry when in Chennai and then decided to stay longer in the city. No hotels were available and we were lucky to find two rooms at Lotus.

The hotel actually does say side view on the rate list that they have on the counter. However both the hotel and cleartrip through which we booked need to... More

The interiors leading into the room were pretty good as well. The room was nice having all basic amenities like tv, mini-fridge, etc. Now coming to the main... More

Anyone visiting Pondy should consider the Lotus Bay View. The location is exceptional and central to quaint shops in the French Section of Pondicherry. Many Restaurants are within a short walk and the hotel is located on the Promenade. As a Faculty member from the USA, University of Iowa I travel to Pondy each year with a few dozen students....
