Hi, we visited Pondicherry from 15-17 Jan 2015 during Pongal weekend. Against all our apprehensions regarding hygiene, cleanliness and safety, we found this guest house at par with any of the good rated hotels. Bed sheets, pillows, towels etc were neat and clean. Rooms were maintained very well. It is situated in one of the best locations as Beach road,... More

My partner and I stayed at Kailash guesthouse for a few days on our second visit to Pondicherry. The owner, Manu, was a very friendly and helpful man who went out of his way to ensure our stay at his guesthouse was as pleasant as possible. We paid Rs 1000 p/n for a non-ac room which was clean and comfortable,... More

This is the hospitality style I’m looking for: homely and authentic indian with clean room and facilty as the hot shower 24h running and confortable bed. The rate is really fair, here you find value for money. And, on the top of that, they are kind and helpful. Another excellent indian staying along my way, thank you.

Stayed here 2 nights on my motorbike trip around the south of india. Very friendly owner! Single fan rooms are small but clean and cosy. Free Wifi and a nice communal area with a bar, TV, books, ... Good location and value for money.

We had two rooms with a/c. They are simple and small but just what you need. Manu was great, he helped us organise a private car to drive us to our next city. The staff are very caring and helpful and don't expect tips. The guesthouse has a lovely vibe and is in a good location.

Just the thing we wanted. Snug and clean little room for a nice price. Fan rooms are really cosy, AC- rooms maybe a little dark. Nice balcony with a view and a cool breeze. Staff was super nice and friendly, the owner is a really kind man. 5 out of 5

I arrived in Pondicherry some weeks ago, and to Kailash after being ripped off by a rickshaw driver (300 rupees to be exact) - putting me in a less than inspired mood about Pondicherry as a whole, and considering this was within the first couple of days of arriving in India, I would consider this to be a bad start...
