We stayed in room no.2 in the ground floor. I'd recommend travelers to ask for rooms on the first or second floor. The room was pretty big with all the necessary amenities including a mini refrigerator. The lighting inside the room was fantastic. There was a large window as well. The rooms have been renovated with utmost care and elegance... More

Stayed here for a day during a weekend trip to Pondicherry. The place is located in the French part of town. Small boutique hotel, within 5 mins walking to the beach. Its french themed, with a band playing in the evening during dinner. This place is dated to the colonial era, where the property belonged to a french major or... More

We were on family vacation and trust me decor and ambiance was so lively that we were taken a back to colonial era. I must say they have excellent sense of space management and up keeping of hotel. We were given one penthouse suite and one deluxe room. It is a great choice for family coming together to Pondichery.

The hotel is located in the heart of the French colony. The place is very quiet and away from busy streets of Pondicherry. The room gives you a feel of an old French room with its full sized windows and doors, made of solid wood, and copper faucets and copper wash basin. Room size is sufficient for 2 people, but...

Beautifully-designed interiors in this old, remodelled building, allowing one to stay in style, and to eat out (lovely food) in a courtyard under the stars. Everything was at is should be, and the staff were very helpful, especially the receptionist/concierge. The location is also great for walking around the White Quarter of Puducherry in the evening and taking the air... More
