This place seems to be run by a mean Indian lady who does not believe in treating her guests well. I was warned by a friend who told me about the place that the lady there can really spoil a person's stay with her erratic mood swings and rudeness. And that could not have been any more true. When I... More

The decor of the room was of utmost standards and it had an attic too, which I observed just before checkout. The bathroom was amazing, and the concept of having just a netted curtain was quite hip. The lightings were perfect and soothing to the eyes. The swimming pool was so well decorated and the overall environment was very calming... More

La Closerie is a very tastefully made place. Annie is a very warm host and very helpful lady too. She & her friend a lawyer from France helped us a lot with the local information regarding where to go and where not go.... They were a good company too.... Yes she is very strict and disciplined which is very essential... More

My sisters and I went here in November. The place is very aesthetically pleasing, though a trifle impractical. It is owned by an artist. She has very pleasing artwork all over the place, but the stay was extremely disappointing. One of our rooms had no door to the bathroom and the other had a bathroom door that was see through....

We saw the place while bar & restaurant hopping in the area, excellent location, very close to the promenade and all the good bars & restaurants, very beautiful property and very creative & tasteful decor, rooms were clean, cozy & comfortable. The owner is a bit quirky with certain rules like no food in the rooms & no children as... More

A group of five sisters we decided to visit Pondicherry and chose La Closerie based on its star ratings. What a big let down. On the face of it its a beautifully decorated strewn with objets d'art kind of place; lots of greenery and a minuscule pool. We were greeted by the owner who said she had lived in Paris... More

We travelled to this place in April 2015. The property is owned by an Indo French lady, who is an artist and has explicitly displayed her beautiful paintings in the place. Her artistic insight and keen taste is reflected largely in every nook and corner of this place. Very beautifully decorated exterior and interiors, with hand picked items, a fusion... More

It's one best place in pondicherry with beach,Sun and french food. I stayed here for 2 days and completely loved the hospitality and warm gesture of staff.Manager is also very kind and humble. Rooms are very cozy and comfortable with attached balcony to chill out with good book and beautiful evening. Very near to rock beach.
