The location of Nila Home Stay is very Good. It is located in French Colony and very near to Promenade Seaside, Vinayagar Temple and French Institute. We stayed in 2nd floor and enjoying full time sea breeze. We missed an attendant in Nila Home Stay and also high rise stair gives some problem but in all it is Very Good.

Lovely decor. Large rooms. Fully furnished. Tasteful interior and exterior. Full access to the roof as an extension to the room. An awesome restaurant bang opposite. Right in the heart of White Town, 2 mins away from the beach. Only a bit heavy on the wallet.

Not only was the room worth the amount but Mr Eugene and Mr Gilbert were very accommodating. Plus, it's also just five minutes from the beach and there are lots of good restaurants nearby and a chapel.

Perfectly located in white town Pondicherry. Spacious rooms. Only some rooms have toilet and bathroom. In the room I stayed there is only bathroom not toilet. If this is concern you need to check that before booking. No television. Rooms are in first and second floor. No escalator.
