Ramana residency is on a side street off a busy road, but just this short distance from the thoroughfare makes the stay serene. The rooms are spacious (we rented a smaller room for 2 persons as well as a family room for 2 adults and 2 kids). The rooms came with refrigerators, and the family room had a balcony. Parking is a short distance away. The front desk staff is very knowledgeable about the local attractions and helpful, as well as courteous. All staff was very friendly and courteous. Breakfast (South Indian fare - Pongal, vada, idly, filter coffee) is included, and was quite good. Just 10-15 min drive from the ashram and Gandhi beach. Will definitely recommend this hotel without any reservations.

I went to pondicherry June 2018 with family. We stayed in Ramana residency. It's located little inside but when it comes to ambience, cleanliness, it's too good. The staff members were very good and specially Vijaya, the owner she was really nice and helped us in all ways. I had a great experience and would really revisit during my next pondi trip :-)

The hotel is on a quiet street very close to the bus deport, and that was very convenient for us, as we had a very early bus to Trichi. We really liked the place, rooms were clean and comfortable, hot water in a bathroom, clean sheets and the main thing - very hospitable hosts! They made everything to make us feel at home. Will def stay again when in Pondi - price is reasonable too.

We spent 4 nights at Ramana Residency during our stay in Pondicherry. The location of the hotel is 5 minutes away from the bus depot, so connecting to any major city is right across the road. The rooms are of good dimensions, well maintained and have huge bed, which can easily sleep 3 at a time. The washrooms are clean and don't raise a stink a bit. However, the rooms do tend to get a bit stuffy at times, because the window is small and it opens only into the passage way outside, which connects all the rooms. They do have curtains for privacy, so that you can keep the windows open. The best part of the hotel is definitely its staff, who comes to your rescue immediately in case of any need. Since we were supposed to check-out at 6:30 in the morning, they made sure that we got our coffee on time and didn't charge us for the same. Parking becomes an issue over here, which I feel is the only drawback of the place. Since the hotel is located in a small lane, getting cars inside is a cumbersome task. You can easily move around with rental scooters, which can be parked inside the hotel gates (not more than 5) comfortably. It's cheap, well maintained and well looked after. Highly recommended.

It was overall a good experience in Ramana Residency. The room was clean and the people were helpful. Clean washrooms. The room was small, but as we traveled as couple, there was no problem. The only issue I found was that it was little difficult to find this place as it's inside an alley. Else, all were good. Oh yes, and this place isn't too far from the beach, so it's good. Have a good time.
