I had a lovely four-night stay at Kailash Guest House. The rooms are basic but very clean. There is hot water. The wifi worked in my room. The lobby lounge is great to hang out and meet other guests or have a cold drink. The location on Mission Street is perfect---steps from shopping and the excellent central market or a... More

Stayed here for three nights, great location with really friendly staff. There is a large common are with tons of comfy seating an coffee tables with a good wifi connection. Wifi is not available in the rooms, if you reached your device off the balcony sometimes a signal would connect. The road is noisy, but when the windows are shut,... More

I booked single room for 2 nights, in the moment I've arrived (9.30 AM) room wasn't ready, but just in one hour it was done. Official check in is much later, so staff did everything to help me to get the room earlier. Stylish reception, good music, quite nice wi-Fi signal. Room is simple, but clean, with hot water. Good...

Good points: The place was clean Location was okay Good wifi signal (once it was located, you have to type in the name it doesn't automatically come up) Bad points: I think it's over priced. I paid r.1250 for an AC room for one person - which for the basic room you get in the guest house is based in... More

My and my partner ended up hear when first making it to Pondicherry. We had dealt with a terrible driver which the owner of the hotel helped us sort out. They were accommodating, sharing and knowledgable about the area. In the words of the owner "you are my guest" was the sentiment conveyed in both his words and his actions.... More

As Mano was quick to respond we asked them to confirm the booking by email and i asked if they need any more details i.e passport... More

We had such a lovely time at this guest house- the owner is really sweet and so helpful. The service really makes this guesthouse special. There is a nice communal area with a computer- however the only thing I would say is there could be wifi. But apart from that is was great!

Pleasant, self contained rooms, at reasonable rates. Friendly staff, and a nice common area. Decent enough, and free, internet. My room did not have AC, which was a bit tough during the hot summer I was here. The beds are a bit narrow.

Our stay was simply unpleasant. First of all the manager/owner was the most rude, un friendly person in India. We endded up there for a lonely planet recommendetion, at the moment we arrived this man suddenly changed the price and now was more expensive than the book by double( which has been very accurate) as soon as we get into...

Very nice rooms, very clean. Including the linnen en towels. The staff is very helpful if you have any questions or want fresh towels. They also offer to clean the room every day. We slept perfectly. Only downside were the rock hard and to big cushions. On our laundry day there was a strike so we had no other option... More
