I really wanted to like this hotel, but just couldn't. My room (I know I booked the cheapest, but I've stayed in better for less) was dark and dreary, and I had to go past the restaurant toilets and laundry department to access it. You have to get out of bed to turn the bedside light off, not important but...

The Female Receptionist informed me that there were no rooms available. I stepped aside, booked two (2) on Agoda and promptly returned to her. She was quick to say that i would soon receive an email advising the rooms were not available. Not so. we were given a shoddy room after 40 mins and then waited a further 35 minutes...

The receptionist Christy kept on arguing that the booking was only done for 2 people for 2 rooms (single occupancy). While I understand its not her fault what she...

With the caveat that I stayed in the depths of low season in early June, I felt a little mis-sold about this "heritage boutique" hotel. Firstly the front courtyard where the closed restaurant is was untidy and needed sweeping, and not a good first impression. My room wasn't very "heritage" and was a bit small and poky, and the AC...

Hotel De Pondicherry is located right at the end of the promenade. It's at a walking distance (if you don't mind walking 1-2kms) from most of the popular eateries and bars. The hotel itself hosts Le Club, one of the best restaurants in Pondicherry. The rooms are rustic and comfortable, with high ceilings and old wooden beds. The bathroom has...

After starting from home in Bengaluru in the morning, I reached the property around ~2PM for check in. The first problem I encountered was lack of car parking. After...
