Not a nice play to stay.
(based on 51 reviews)
Visited Pondicherry with my family last week. We stayed at this hotel. Positives: 1. Good and Punctual Room service. 2. Breakfast (Complementary). 3. Restaurant Food and Bar. 4. Near to all famous tourist spots. Negatives: 1. Room size is too small. If a queen size bed is kept, there is no space to walk even. 2. Bathroom looks a bit old and needs to be renovated. 3. Difficult to stay for a family with kids. 4. Costlier room tariff considering the size and quality of the room. Not suggested for families. Suitable for couples and solo travelers.
I was hugely disappointed with the rooms & service of the hotel. Firstly the rooms are not properly maintained. One could see paint coming out of the walls. Rooms are pretty small, even for a couple to share the same. Washrooms are not clean & the disadvantage is that the washroom vent is shared with 2 adjoining rooms. Wifi was also not working properly. Very limited option at Breakfast also. Overall will not recommend this place as there is plenty of option to stay and explore the place in the same tariff. Also be noted that they are very rigid for check-in & check-out time. Even when we reached at 8 in the morning, we were allotted room at the scheduled time only even when there were many vacant rooms available.
The rooms are really small (might be 10*10 size), feels like you are in bedroom and the bedroom door directly connected to public walk area. The beds are OK, neat and clean, bathroom is also very small. Coming the important point the bathroom window of one bedroom is attached to the other bedroom bathroom, there is no individual ventilation. We stayed as couple and in our case the people who were staying our adjacent room were smokers and when they smoke in their bathroom all the smoke got occupied at our bathroom too. When we came back from local visit and tried to enter into bathroom it was horrible we couldn't able breath for a moment. This issue we communicated twice to Receptionist but no action taken. Really bad response. At last some how we managed with ventilation fan and covering our face as next day was our checkout. Except this issue the receptionist was helpful to provide bathrooms located at restaurant for fresh up when we came early than check in time and also helped by keeping one of our bag with them on next day after we checked out. Overall ok for bachelor but not for family I believe. On the food side we don't had opportunity to have even though we had a option of free buffet breakfast as the timing was not suitable, i.e. 8.30am to 9.30am. was the timing.
Excellent location, very close to most of the tourist spots in Pondy. A budget hotel with decent and clean rooms, suitable only for solo travellers. Elevator is stinky and rusted. Breakfast is served direct to the room at 8:30 everyday. Taste is good but is always cold. Staff are friendly. OK for solo traveller for a short stay.
Great Location. Friendly Helpful Staff. Great Room With Everything I Needed, Cleaned Regularly. Wide Variety And Good Amount For Breakfast. The Food I Tried From The Resturant Was Nice And Tasty. A Bar Downstairs For A Cold Beer On A Hot Day Or Delivered To Your Room. If You Want A Good Place To Stay In Pondicherry I Highly Recommend This Hotel
