Folks, the Title says it all...No other place in Pondy gives you access to such views in this Budget Range...Staff is courteous, Food is decent and the Room Clean..But the Balcony, What can I say about it ? You can sit there with for eternity and you wish the view never ends ...Truly amazing :)

The hotel is a budget hotel with minimal amenities. The only advantage of this hotel is its location. It has a decent balcony from where you will be able to see the sea and even from bed also you can enjoy a view of the sea which is great. If you are looking for comfort and luxury this is not...

We checked in this hotel since it was kind of the last available option. We didn't plan for this trip and had to search for quite sometime to settle down for the night. First of all, the room wasn't cleaned properly.We had to ask them to change the bed spreads twice and clean the latrine the same amount of times... More

Amazing seascape views! Balance that against high tariff, dirty rooms, uncovered electrical wires near the shower rose, furniture being moved at midnight, dirty doors, holes in the wall, the worst restaurant ever, one one occasion there was no water, and the concierge(if I can call him that) did not give any change back from the money I handed over for...

I haven't stayed here but had dinner. The hotel is run down with a tiring look from inside. However the positive the excellent location i.e. Goubert Avenue. There is a narrow balcony next to the restaurant in Level 1 which is simply superb to have a drink and dinner. Don't expect fancy decor and services but just the location lovely.... More

Its not worth the money and sea view that you may get. If you get a clear sea view, then its fine. If you are fine with sub-standard food and cleanliness, they it might be fine with you. Staff is fine, but at times it might communicating with them might become an issue. Local language constrains. To cut the long... More

We stayed in a sea facing room with small balcony and breakfast included, for one night. View from the balcony and the roof top restaurant is very nice. Room is small, but enough for a night. Bathroom extremely basic and not very clean. The breakfast was very poor: basic white toast bread, butter, jam, coffee.. very average/below average. The cantine... More

On my check-in date, I made a confirmation call in the morning (i was supposed to reach by late evening) and i was provided with the same status. On arrival, I was told... More
