The room we had, had windows opening out into the corridor. The walls had ceramic tiles, making us think we were in a large toilet. The airconditioner and the TV worked, but the geyser did not.
You get sheets and a towel if you ask for it.
The good thing about the room was that it made us spend most of the time outside exploring Pondicherry, inspite of the hot weather. The redeeming fact was the very friendly and helpful staff.
Certainly would not go back there!
