Its a great place to stay if you are planning to visit. 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. Only 1 tip is avoid ground floor rooms, it gets loud during dining times and smoking area is located just outside the rooms.... More

It's a quaint little boutique hotel tucked in the White Town and we stayed here for 3 nights. Great decor and ambience with a fine dining restaurant serving arguably the best food in Pondicherry, although it's not easy on the pocket. The breakfasts are sumptuous and hearty with fresh juices, fruits and freshly made delicious Indian and continental options. The... More

I have read great review of this place on Tripadvisor and hence decided to try it out. This place is located in the heart of the French quarters and hence enjoys maximum visibility. I came back unimpressed and disappointed. Reasons are plenty. The service was not only slow but really really slow. I remember asking for water more than 10... More

We went there for dinner. After reading the reviews, and how crowded it is, I was surprised that I was able to get a reservation. They did however indicate that our reservation will be held only till 7:30, so we made it by 7:25 and was taken to our table without any hassle. We started the dinner with the Betel... More

This is by far the most peaceful restaurant I've been to. It exudes warmth and comfort with its serene settings. The food gets yummier with every bite. Great service and reasonable prices, no wonder it's so highly recommended.

Villa Shanti is in the heart of the French quarter, which has most of the places to visit within walking distance. The hotel itself is newly refurbished, or it seems to be, and is great place to stay. Staff are very friendly, and always there to help.
