It was our first visit to Pondicherry and we were looking forward to our stay in the seemingly charming La Closerie. However we were appalled by the reception we received by the owner Annie herself. Even before we stepped into the hotel she rushed out and instead of welcoming us she very rudely told us that there was no place... More

I have enjoyed everything about my stay at La Closerie in Pondichery. Its relaxing stylish atmosphere, with the pool and the sitting areas, the deco and comfort of my bedroom, the location in the heart of the "white town" close to all the trendy restos and boutiques, but also at walking distance from the more popular and typical streets of...

We came to Pondicherry so my wife could spend a month training at the Aravind Eye Hospital. Basic accommodation had been organised by the hospital, but we decided to forgo that and find our own. Easily the best decision we made. All of the staff at La Closerie were a pleasure to deal with and Anne, the owner/manager, constantly went... More

I chose La Closerie as I wanted a hotel in the French Quarter with a colonial feel and a swimming pool. I found the perfect place. Through my research I found most hotels in the French Quarter with a colonial feel had no swimming pool, or were out of my budget. I booked a deluxe double and received room 6... More

La Closerie is a lovely hotel in the heart of the French Quarter in Pondicherry. We stayed there for 4 nights as a coastal break from the inland temple towns of Tamil Nadu. The hotel is a cleverly and stylishly designed oasis around a central courtyard with a small pool. There are lots of couches under shady trees making it... More

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. The detailing that has gone into it is amazing. Its peaceful and quiet and just the ideal place if you want to curl up with a book. There are however a few drawbacks. It isnt a full service hotel. So the only meal you get is a standard breakfast which unfortunately is the same everyday.... More

We have just returned from a hol at La Closerie, it is a beautiful and restful place to stay. The bedrooms are lovely, but there are several areas to sit and relax in peace, which are well appointed and relaxing- which is unusual. The staff and Annie are excellent and look after the guests well- highly recommend it

Our stay for three days was wonderful. The property is located in a very quite place and has the beach road right close to it. Anne was very helpful. Everything was perfect and I have nothing to complain about!
