Oh my God! I can't even begin to describe how terrible the stay was at this hotel. This was my first booking through OYO rooms and I am just highly disappointed. Terrible Terrible service, dirty bathrooms, no amenities. Rooms are small, the bed even smaller. Please do yourself a favour and book another hotel. Girls,if you are travelling solo, avoid this place. Hotel - Shady, Unclean, Zero service, Worse than a lodge Rooms - Small - Even hostel rooms are far better Service - Terrible would be an understatement Staff - Untrained, Not ready to listen, Rude Breakfast - Please go out and have something else Recommended - Absolutely not! Location - Around 20 mins walk to rock beach (Please don't even take that as a consideration and avoid booking here)
The location of this hotel is in a narrow lane. No big facade. Its like entering into a cave and staying inside a cave. No ventilation, no windows. Room is very small. The bed is enough for a couple to snuggle up and sleep. Not enough space to move in the bed. Only one person handled everything in the hotel when we went. No room service. No breakfast. No Wi-fi, but broadband cable was provided but it was painfully slow. For the rates charged its not cost effective. If the rates are below Rs. 1000/- then it might be cost effective. On the whole, it might suit a single person on a business trip but not for couple on a holiday.
This one is a Neat and Clean Mid-Range Hotel with helpful staff. Properly Maintained with all kind of options for room size. Rooms are decent. Bed covers and quilt were in good condition. Proper ventilation in room as we took room on 1st floor. AC was working fine. Located on MG Road, Next to Perumal Temple, Pondicherry city. All tourist places are approachable from the hotel.
We stayed here for 2nights.Room's are decent but bed covers and quilt was not i n good condition and no proper ventilation.Rest of it was fine as we needed room only for resting.It was fully air conditioned.We booked a standard room .
Improper lighting.Rooms are not spacious. Every service was asked for extra payment. Not disclosed until the time of billing that checkout time is 12pm and we were charged half the cost of room to stay till 6pm.
We stayed during Nov hotel rooms are neat and clean. But service and maintenance is not good at all. There is no proper bathroom amenities for such higher rent in a suite room. There is no service boys to help. Room rates are too high in such remote locality.
All the major places in pondicherry are nearby this hotel..so without any difficulties you can visit all those. the advantage of this hotel is being reasonable in rates. you can have a pleasant trip with not much hole in your pocket. Advantages: Reasonable Rates clean rooms nice manager situated in a calm area near to all the attractions Disadvantages: No food service that's it...i didnt found much problems in this hotel..all in all its good...manager here is good, can manage to adjust anything you need....that's it...thank you.:)
I stayed in the hotel during the first week of October 2013.I found the hotel clean and neat and the staff friendly and polite.We came across this hotel after roaming for about an hour in Pondy and my taxi driver who had prior knowledge of this hotel advised me to go to this hotel.Every thing okay up till now.On entering enquiring about the tariff card I was not given one since there is no tariff card.I think the tariff is a floating one like the interest rates depending upon the customer.I was charged Rs.1500/= per night for a standard room and the receptionist (may be Abdul) was visibly hesitant to hand over the bill to me at the time of checkout and was more interested in taking the cash.I suspected a case of overpricing and he was hand in glove with my taxi driver.On returning to my place when I checked the net and visited their website I found the real price for a standard room was Rs.1250/= per night. The staff gets up early and finishes their bath in the hotel leaving no hot water for the hotel guests.They have not even employed one person for room service.…
I stayed at New Royal Inn with my family during my recent visit to Pondicherry in August. I booked the hotel beforehand via phone. Hotel staff was nice, polite and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. There is no room service but staff provides you coffee and water bottles. Its close to the market and some restaurants so you can eat there. There is no parking but staff was courteous to inform us about this beforehand. Overall its a good budget hotel with everything you can expect.
A group of 12 , we visited Pondicherry on the long weekend of 9th Aug 2013. Our prior reservations in one of the beach side hotels did not work out as promised by the hotel management and we had to look for a hotel to accommodate all 12 of us. Luckily after searching for an hour or two we were happy to find New Royal Inn ready to accommodate us at midnight. A welcoming staff , greeting everyone with a smile. When needed room service was available late at night . All the amenities provided were of best quality. Unlike the other hotels we had visited , the receptionist/the staff were very polite and were able to converse in English .The hotel and the rooms are very clean and well maintained. Room service is prompt and hotel fare was pocket friendly too. They do not have a restaurant in the hotel but did arrange for food . we ordered breakfast and dinner and the hotel staff was courteous to arrange for plates and spoons upon our request. The receptionist has a good idea of the places of interest in Pondicherry and was helpful in planning our itenary . The hotel is also close to the French colony . I am thankful to The New Royal Inn hotel for making our 3 day stay in Pondicherry pleasant and enjoyable . Highly recommended !…
