I stayed at the guest house on a solo pondi trip. The rooms were clean and the caretaker was kind enough to allow me to check-in at 7:30 in the morning. It is not within walking distance from the white town but is in a quite neighborhood. I would recommend it to other solo travellers.

I know the title will raise a few eyebrows but that is what I felt and many will agree by the time they finish reading my review. First and foremost, if you serve someone plain white rice, it will remain plain white rice and not Biryani simply since you have labeled it as Biryani and charge according to a Biryani....

This is a paradise for a backpacker. On a walk able distance from railway station. Property is decorated in 'Indian' style but its nice. Although the owner dont talk to much with guest as a back packer may expect, she is a perfectionist in providing services. She also arranged doorstep two wheeler rent service for us on request and it...

We had a wonderful stay at Aadhar, I'd rate everything there 10/10, but I think it was too overpriced owing to the fact that it's a guest house. We paid 1,700 for an A/C room during April. Since we were on a budget, the common pantry was a savior and must say, well equipped (with amenities, not food, obviously) They...

We stayed in Pondicherry just two days on our way from Chennai to Varkala, but we wished we could have stayed longer.

Booked Aadhar guest house because it was #5 in Pondicherry. Reached Pondicherry by 5pm and it is a challenge to locate this place. Without GPS, forget it. The rooms are really well maintained and clean. Kudos to cuckoo, who does a great job except for the fact that she gives you a huge list of dos and donts. You will...
