This place was the cleanest place we had in all India but they will not show you the room before you pay because this is an ashram place. It is situated on the calm place. Maybe the only drawback is that you have to leave the key at the reception. Speaking about the town Pondicherry there is just nothing interesting... More

We have stayed at the new guest house on more than 4 occasions now. Very clean and well maintained property. Rooms are modest with only bed, a small cupboard to keep your things, a chair and a mirror. The bathrooms are clean and hygienic. It has a decent shower and a wash basin as well. You can have simple vegetarian... More

The negatives first. You have to get back before 10.30 PM and maintain an acceptable level of silence after 9 PM. Hot water has to be fetched in buckets, no impromptu lunch or dinner order in the canteen, they have to be booked in advance. The canteen is slow. But then, these are all declared upfront and it is your... More

Strongly advise against this guesthouse. Staff were, as others have said, so uniformly rude that it almost seemed a joke. Insisted that I paid before securing my booking and then 10 minutes after taking my cash and passport told us about the 10pm curfew. While this may be 'common knowledge' it was not written anywhere nor mentioned by staff before... More

But the staff is impatient n rude.. Food in the canteen is nice homely, tasty n clean... But it also have timing..

Located in the historic French Quarters, this hotel is very clean, and quiet. We got a room on the 2nd floor. Room is very basic, but spotlessly clean. Food is very good too. Rates are reasonable. No TV and hot water. Main door closes at 10 pm. Beach is 2 minutes walk, and there are restaurants everywhere.

The room was clean and tidy. The rooms are very basic. Only one plug point is available in the room. so you have to wait for your turn to charge your mobile if it is a double occupancy. You have a balcony in all rooms (I hope balcony is not available in ground floor rooms). You have decent room with... More
