We planned a rush trip to Pondy for 2N3D, and got a very good deal for Hotel Mass, 2000 bucks for 2N and Bkfst included. Hotel is centrally located nxt to pondy bustand. Rooms were clean and spacious....Food is not something they cn boost off...but we were always out :) Staff was courteous. In all a nice budget hotel.

Do not ever visit their bar aruvai. The food is highly priced with poor service. Any dish takes minimum half hour and its not worth the wait. The television in the bar is controlled by localities who put some waste channel. Not a place to have your relaxing beer.

The Mass is living on its past glory. The beds, tables, chairs,... have not changed since the doors opened. The room, however, was spotless as was the bath. Plenty of hot water. The breakfast buffet was quite nice. The dinners I had were also quite good. I highly recommend the strawberry milkshakes -- ask for extra ice cream instead of... More
