Loved the rooms and the people. On the northern end of the city, so getting to the good restaurants (which are more on the south) is difficult but there are plenty of local restaurants nearby. Only small gripe, I had been promised on the phone that I wouldn't be charged for my son for the bed (and I wouldn't take... More

I would definitely recommend this little and warm heritage in Pondicherry: rooms are big, clean, elegant and silent even if the hotel is very central. Good breakfast and pleasant yard. Good people and good vibe! Massimo

We initially booked a standard room for about 2000, but upgraded to a deluxe when we saw that the room had a beautiful pond and temple view. The whole time we were there, the place was mostly quiet enough to hear fish swimming in the pond.... More
