This very pretty and quiet hotel in the old French quarter was a delight to stay in.We especailly enjoyed the tastefully appointed room and the decor of the corridors.On our arrival we were give complimentary fruit and nuts and every day received free water and cookies/chocolates.The room was spotless,let down only by the bathroom ,which,although not a problem for us,was beginnning to show signs of wear.Staff are couteous and helpful,without being intrusive.
Le Dupleix is well-located for all the sights and you are also able to enjoy the swimming pool of their sister hotel ,which we did,very much!
The courtyard dining room is very lovely in the evenings-twinkling lights and the sounds of running water.The food was delicious-very tasty indeed,When the waitress got my partner's order wrong ,this was swifly corrected with abject apologies.Breakfasts were also good-fabulous coffee although the croissants were a little dry.
The hotel also supplies you with the daily newspaper and you can make appointments for massage if you wish. Although there is building work going on in the neighbouring compound ,it did not disturb us at all.

Room Tip: We had an upgrade to Room 7,which is a suite towards the front of the hotel.It was very elegant wthin and extremely comfortable.

This boutique hotel is located centrally in the old french town of Pondicherry and it used to be the house of the Mayor. The hotel has a typical French architecture with large, spacious rooms and a beautiful open central courtyard. My stay with my wife was very pleasant and comfortable. The hotel staffs were very efficient and caring. We had our breakfast in the hotel restaurant and the food was really tasty.
I would strongly recommend this hotel to all !!!!!

We chose Le Dupleix for a change as we used to stay in Promenade earlier. The change was rewarding and a good experience.

The hotel is centrally located and all important places like Aurobindo Ashram, Manakula Vinayagar temple, The beach and all good food joints are within walkable distance.

The front desk people and hotel staff are very caring and cordial and always ready to help. The food choice for an indian vegetarian is limited but the food is good. The breakfast was excellent and the choices good, both indian and continental.

Even though i booked a delux room, i was upgraded to a penthouse and the stay was very nice. The room was tastefully done up and the wood work in the room was palatial. The balcony and the carved chairs outside was a great place to relax.

Take care to ask for less noisy rooms as the masonary work in the next compound can be a pain for the odd room. the hotel staff oblige if they have rooms available to help out. Better to request for this while booking itself.

Overall, it was a nice experience and a value for money proposition. The Manager of the Hotel, who has come from Delhi takes personal care to meet with the guests and is always willing to help. She is also keen to take suggestions if any.

If you are looking out for enjoying that part of the french history of pondicherry, you will not miss out. Also take a walk through the by-lanes near the hotel and you will enjoy seeing the buildings with french architecture on both sides, taking you back to the colonial past.

Great stay and worth the money.
