“Grant Hotel at a reasonable price”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stayed 1 night while transiting from Velankanni to Bangalore. Good clean hotel in the main road. A grant hotel for the reasonable rent you pay.Located in the main kamaraj salai and near to beach road. Food is also very good.

Stayed 1 night while transiting from Trichy to Chennai. Good clean and comfy hotel, friendly staff. Place is near the Indian area, where you have to get a taxi/auto to the French area. They had WIFI (paid) but didn't work most of the time. Didn't try their food as there are few nearby eateries, situated opposite a big movie theater, good place to stay for short visit.

Room Tip: view rooms before paying

Prologue: Two of us families travelled to Pondicherry for the weekend and bunked at Hotel Jayaram for 2 nights. Thought of staying at resort but with 3 children below 5, decided to stick to a proper hotel.
Location: Convenient for the traveler journeying in a car. Quite close to the tourist landmarks - promenade, museum, Bharthi park, ashram, some temples, etc.
Surroundings: Opposite to a movie theatre and adjacent to medical shop and a liquor store.
Room: A simple clean room + bathroom. Couldn't adjust the A/c but it maintained a regulated cool temperature. Looked reasonable for the price - although a renovation may be required in 2-3 years.
Food: Hotel food is vegetarian and quite good. Room service is prompt and didn't mess anything up. Couple of restaurants opposite to the hotel serve excellent Indian chicken-based dishes. All you have to do is spend 15 minutes to order than and get your choice of poison for a good time!
Cons: 1- Too much noise in the morning at 7 - couldn't force myself to sleep after that. 2- Not a single English channel on TV (not even news!) and 3- every hotel-employee wanted a tip (actually asked for 100INR per person) while leaving which dampened the experience.
Epilogue: Will I stay here again? I most likely will.

This Hotel located in a busy part of the city. Hotel entrance & Lobby noisy due to restaurant customers. Hotel has a good ambeince, rooms are comfortable,spacious,room furnishings were simple but very attractive even room services are excellent. Charges are reasonable for the type of accommodation offered. Hotel restaurant offers South & North Indian Vegetarian foods, specialized in south indian food. Even parking space for vehicles also spacious.

Room Tip: "avoid Rooms on the front side of main road"

This is not a premium hotel and it never tries to be. But at the price which they are charging its worth staying if its just a short visit to pondicherry. The room is very basic but roomy and it could use some renovation soon. the USP of this hotel is its high quality vegetarian restaurant and it delivers to a large extent. Its perfect for a short visit or if you are traveling alone on a business trip.

Room Tip: Not ideal for a luxury trip but good enough for a short visit and yummy veg food

This is a very good hotel right in the middle of the city..a perfect budget hotel.
Nice spacious n clean rooms
Clean bathrooms (much needed hot water available 24*7)
Wi-Fi facility available
Good ambience.
Food is good for vegetarians, others need to look for options outside...room service is prompt.
The cable connection needs to be fixed by them, poor reception.
Otherwise with a good room layout, spacious cupboards, an iron safe, big parking space.....overall very good budget hotel, definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Make sure you order plenty of water well in advance, takes some time to get room delivered.
