We stayed one night with this family that welcomed us into their home. It's a lovely home with very clean and tidy rooms, in which you can relax and come to rest. Afterwards, they will tell you all must-see places in Pondicherry, with an enthusiasm to remember! To round it off, the food that is served at breakfast is a... More

If you're staying in Puducherry, the Meeranjali homestay is a lovely place for a base. The couple who run it are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home. The home-cooked Indian style breakfast is very tasty and plentiful. The house is tranquil but at the centre of the city, close to the attractions.... More

Hospitality industry rests on politeness or let us say courteousness and customer service. If you think so too - please avoid! I called Meeranjali and spoke to Chitra and asked for rooms on 1&2nd. She made a huge fuss when i said we will reach early morning. Then she said she will bill us for 31st also and, when i... More

Our hosts were welcoming, friendly and helpful with advice about their city. The home was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and an excellent breakfast (including the best porridge I have ever eaten) was provided. Wifi was perfect. The spacious room allowed for us to spread out our big cases and there was a useful night light too. Location was excellent as... More

This is a quiet, private and welcoming homestay within walking distance to the old French quarter of Pondicherry. The place appealed to me because of its impeccable cleanliness, excellent service and an almost meditative atmosphere. There is a very nice restaurant offering local vegetarian dishes two blocks away from Meeranjali. Ask the hosts for directions.

Pros: Rooms are maintained very very clean, neat and hygienic. Close to the sea (just 500 mts). Very close to the hotels and shopping area. Room price is also less compared to hotel rooms. Free WiFi which you can connect from room. Overall very much worth for money. Chitra and Pradip are very nice people. They gave all useful information... More

On entering, we were immediately restored after our all night journey by the soothing quietness and understated good taste of the reception... More
