Basic guesthouse with no frills - This is what we were told. Given the tariffs, we didnt expect anything luxurious. Rooms on 3rd floor do not have basic toilet fittings. The windows look over to a shady looking factory where creepy men peep into your rooms. The staff members are pretty old and conservative kinds. Be prepared for those ridiculous...

Also, since in the interiors is cool comparatively to the ones nearside the beach. It's proximity to cottage industries, Ashram, Ganesha temple, Anand Bhavan, autorickshaw stand and tours and travels' offices is on the positive...

Bang in the middle of the busiest road (I think) of Pondicherry, you will find The International Guest House - non-assuming, simple and no nonsense. After much questioning and checking, I was welcomed. The room was just right for a single person with an academic aim (I was visiting for a Sanskrit language course). Clean sheets, table-chair-wardrobe, working a/c and...

Positives: Absolute value for money Located on the back end of the French quarter and central to all useful places Safe and Secure Clean even though a bit aged property. Actually the Old Wing looks newer than the New Wing Negatives: Nothing of note. The furniture in new wing is quite dated. Check in of 2pm and checkout of 12pm...

We stayed at the international guest house in pondicherry. The only reason we booked it was that an AC room costed just Rs 600/-. But it was very basic room. I think the guest house is a no frills place which is just okay for the backpack travellers. Families should avoid this. This property is run by Sri aurobindo ashram...
