The rooms were fantastic, clean and airy and very comfortable. The staff is really helpful and even made us food which is not on the menu, because we were exhausted and just wanted comfort food. All in all I would go back and stay here again, every time. The location is also fantastic, It's two minutes away from the beach and right in the centre of White Town with all the popular restaurants and hang out spots right around it.

My mum and I visited this Heritage hotel right in the centre of white town . This is the only hotel in the area which has large rooms. No parking issues either. Staff was very welcoming and facilities were impeccable. What i absolutely loved about the stay was that it was so close to everything. We walked and explored pondi :). I'd love to go back .

Its a very simple place with simple delicious food and good service. If you are not looking for too many activities and just want to relax and rest in Pondicherry, this is the place for you. The rooms are comfortable with all facilities and the dining may not have a variety of a 5-star resort but what you get is extremely good. We ordered the "Carrot and Orange soup" all the days we stayed as it was so delicious.The staff is courteous and helpful.Pool looks clean but we didnt use it. The place is at walkable distance to most things in White Town and has lot of eating places near in case you are bored of eating at the hotel. I have only one regret, the coffee really sucks so we were drinking tea which was good all through our stay.

Wonderful experience from start to finish during our 3 weeks stay here. My partner & I loved staying here at Grand Hotel D’Europe. Clean & beautiful hotel with charming ambience. Lovely courteous & accommodating staff. Location is great, central, lovely area, safe, close to the park and the beach. Good quality breakfast. They were willing & able to cater to our dietary requirements. I appreciate them making me quinoa and sprout salad upon my request. We enjoyed the freshly made watermelon juice at the start of breakfast & the freshly cut papaya was nice & ripe & tasty. Look forward to staying here again. Big thank you to everyone working there for helping to create a super special time for us. Big smile :D

We stayed at the Grande Hotel D’Europe in Pondicherry in March 2022. It was a very pleasant experience for us. The rooms are huge with furnishings that speak grandeur.. I specially loved the double panelled doors and the windows (don’t know how else to put it :)). It is very conveniently located within a walkable distance from the rocky beach. The dining experience on the roof top under the canopy was a lovely experience. Thank you Murad and his staff for making our stay memorable :)

We had such a lovely experience at Grand Hotel D'Europe. It had the vibe of an old French building mixed with Chettinad style. The food and restaurant's abience was terrific. The roof-top view for dining is a +1 for sure! And with the excellent staff and service, we had an over wonderful experience. Do try it out!

Spent my birthday weekend in Pondi and this hotel was fantastic! The property is located few mins walk from the beach, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They make sure your stay is comfortable and are very hospitable. I would highly recommend booking your vacation at this hotel next time you are in Pondicherry. The breakfast buffet was really delicious as well, and the swimming pool was very clean and nice.
