This property is bang in the middle of Pondycherry, walking distance from the beach and all good eating places. You cant ask for a better location! However, The hotel I feel is over rated. There are too many staircases! Anyone with disabilities or knee pain or older people will find it very difficult to get to their rooms! In fact... More

Room was cozy, small and functional. It is located in the heart of the French quarters and is very central. The physical infrastructure was fairly impressive. It was a very quiet place. We were delighted by the warmth of the staff but were disappointed about their lack of training on basics (management issue not staff) - front desk did not... More

The Hotel de L'Orient reminded me of a small hotel in New Orleans. It was charming, well appointed, and understated. My cozy, quiet room was named the "Gingy", under the eaves, and reached by a ladder-like wooden stair. The room had rich wood floors and furniture, coffee and tea (with a scissors provided to open the packets), and a bathroom... More

Located in the prime locality of White Town or the French Quarter, Hotel de Órient offers an unique experience in a new blend of resorted 18th century heritage mansion. The courtyard Carte Blanche is amazing to lounge away the afternoons and the rooms with high-raftered ceilings and royal interiors coupled with the most courteous staff make the sojourn a heavenly...

We stayed at the comfortable Seringapattinam in the Annexe. Good service. Wonderful breakfast. The suite in itself was well set up. Air-conditioning - essential in the afternoons. The decor was charming and it was in true Neemrana style - boutique, functional.

We stayed at the Hotel L'Orient in Pondicherry and it was easily one of the best travel experiences we had. The hotel is a renovated old Franco-Tamil colonial style bungalow in the erstwhile French quarter. It remains true to the features of the 18th century architecture and finish, while having modern conveniences. We arrived at the hotel five hours before... More

We stayed at this Neemrana Heritage property in mid-April and loved the experience. The bungalow is built in the old French style and is full of old artifacts and photographs from the 18th and 19th centuries. We especially liked the well-preserved actual picture post cards that are framed all over the place. It completes the old-world ambience of the place.... More

A quick getaway from the maddening work-week was what we needed. This nicely furnished boutique hotel was everything I wanted. So much character in each of the pieces in the rooms. The colonial furniture and the greenery around was a good distraction from the urban landscape we live in. We stayed in Karaikal, which opened into a not-so-small private terraced... More
