Its a great place to stay if you are planning to visit pondicherry. The location is very central and is within walking distance to quiet a few places. The rooms are cozy and have a mix of colors.It's a gorgeously restored heritage house,full of character and culture. Located not far from the Promenade, Vatika easily blends the old world with...

We had booked our stay at Vatika guest house 2 months prior. Its very reasonable. We were looking at budget stay and this was apt right at the end of Promenade. Just a week prior to our trip we received a call from the owner saying that she has cancelled our booking as the place needed a huge plumbing job...

I stayed here with with family (including 3 children). We enjoyed our visit very much. Our rooms were elegantly decorated with good a/c. The guest home is peaceful and in a very convenient location. The tariff is very reasonable. If you are looking for somewhere quiet to relax during your stay in Pondicherry, I'd recommend this place. Datta, the owner,...

First the pros: location is very close to the promenade and rooms are spacious, aesthetically decorated, and clean. Cons: This place functions like a airbnb without access to the kitchen. When we arrived after a long drive, we were told that the cook is on leave for the whole day. This was certainly not informed to us beforehand. We were...

We stayed at Vatika for 2 nights in January 2014. They accommodated our early check-in willingly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The room was very clean and had a small balcony. They served basic breakfast of bread and butter, so you have to make arrangements for your own meals. If you walk up to...

Located close to the Promenade and the French quarter, Vatika is a beautiful home. Rooms are big and neat and every little thing in this place is with an artistic touch. You cannot expect a hotel-like service here, but this is just like a guest house. Perfect place for families, singles or girls. We just stayed for one night and...

An amazing guest house , 5 minutes walk from the promenade. Amazing host, clean and beautiful rooms with custom decor. Very very peaceful. That essentially means that the host expects the guests also to maintain a dignified behavior while there, in terms of noise and all. All in all a place which will not disappoint you. The place commands a...

Great place for families to stay. They do not allow alcohol in the premises. Very close proximity to the promenade and the French part of Pondy. Very warm and clean place. Breakfast is very minimal, nothing lavish. If you inform them, they serve lunch and dinner as well, but only vegetarian. The staff is very hospitable and helpful. And great...

Homely place to stay,very near to Sea and Ashram.Perfect Home Stay.Rooms are clean and nicely maintained. Home like environment with Mom and GrandMaa's love. Didi here maintains a small handicraft shop with clothes and other hand made items. Didi is doing nice social service by providing employment to needy and selling stuff made by them.
