Hotel Coramandal Heritage
Ranked #7 of 160 Pondicherry B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Hi travellers and review readers.... i along with my friend had visited the city and had 02 night stay at the Hotel. I was booked in Standard room but was upgraded on free to superior catergory which is in the top floor. The room was quite big with a kingsize bed and a single bed which can accomodate 4 pax comfortably. The bathroom was quite spacious.The rooms needs to refurnished and walls needs to coloured . There was AC failure on first day and there was water leakage from roof. Keeping it aside it was good to stay and will reccomend other to stay as its quite value for money in centre of City

Room Tip: Try for Superior rooms , 301, 302

At first, I was a bit hesitant in checking into the hotel because It was a hard to believe that a hotel such as this got great reviews even though it offered us rooms at an extremely lesser price compared to the others. When I got there, I was amazed by the ingenuity of the house-turned-hotel as well as the hospitality of the staff there. The rooms although not really big, was a cozy setting that I enjoyed a lot. A lot of the times, we just wanted to get back to the hotel, after a sweaty and hot day in Pondicherry and just relax in those oh so, comfortable bed. This is right in the heart of the city.Situated on a quiet street, its accessible to pretty much everything. I'm so glad I stayed here. Now I'll be sending my folks on their vacation to this place! Au revoir!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor and brighter than the rooms on the ground floor. You have access to the bal...

I booked this hotel after reading reviews from tripadvisor and found the same. Good value for the price, location is close to the beach. The owner is very helpful and staff is courteous.
I would recommend everyone to stay here if you want to be close to the beach and city...

We stayed two nights in August 2012 in this little hotel and we liked it very much. Good value for the price, it's often the case in Pondicherry for accomodation. It's located in a quiet little street, just behind main street in the "indian" part of the town, near the "french" part. The owner was kind, the cleanliness very good (for the indian standard), the room quiet and confortable (you should ask for a room on the back side) with TV, AC. Decoration was charming (with a common balcony), like a traditional home but maybe a little bit oldish.

Room Tip: rooms on the back side are quieter

Tis hotel s a vry ethnic and elegant one...actually an old fasioned heritage house converted into a hotel. Me and ma spouse chose it coz it was well packd away frm hustles of city and budget one. D interiors wer artfully done and d place had a rusticness abt it,like a tinted painting.v wer gvn a room in d 1st floor wit a double cot,a simple toilet,but gud furnishng.Yet,it was d gloomy interior of d room vch reallly gav a dull feel to us...nt enof sunlyt or outside air,it was lik hvng been trapped... v lft d room nxt vry mrng and headed out to anothr place to getaway frm d gloom!!!

Room Tip: Better try d rooms n third floor!!!

I came here after Makemytrip messed my booking up and sent me to some aweful buisness type hotel. i came back the next day to coramandal and the owner gave me a delux room on the balcony for the mess up. its not the ritz, but the place is very clean, the rooms are perfectly airconditioned and the staff are so very helpful. I would stay here again without question. Be careful booking online, call ahead to confirm.

The hotel has a nice charm about it. It is a traditional Tamil styled home, developed into a hotel. I loved it the first time I saw it.

The room was tidy, with clean and comfortable matresses. There was a tv in the room, and ample plug points to recharge your gadgets. The bathroom was very clean also. The room we were given was on the 2nd floor, and had a good view of the area around the hotel.

The hotel location is central. The Promenade is just a 5 min walk away. The French quarters and the Heritage part of the town are all at walkable distance from the hotel. The famous Surguru restaurant is at a stone-throw distance from the hotel. There is an Anjappar Chettinad as well for the Tamil cuisine lovers. The hotel reception had maps of the city, which helped us roam around.

There is parking by the road side, and it seemed quite safe. There was free wifi, and paid browsing facilities. A clean air-conditioned double bed with a nice balcony, and good services at the center of Pondicherry, costing INR 1100 a day is definitely value-for-money.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for a budget stay to anyone visiting Pondicherry. Don't forget to take the heritage walks when in Pondicherry.

Room Tip: The AC rooms on the upper floors are a better choice.
