We had a very comfortable stay at the Orient. The hotel is easy to find and located in a clean neighbourhood. It was like stepping back in time when you enter the hotel. We were looking for a clean place to stay while in Pondy and the historic feel was a bonus. The staff was friendly throughout and their restaurant... More

Hotel de l'Orient, beautifully restored old building leaving behind all the charm and very few changes were done only to suit today's requirements. Comfortable place to stay with very helpful staff. The courtyard in the center really opens up the space which helps in a way for your kids to get that extra open space to run around and play.

I visited the carte blance restaurant here. The food is delicious. The place has definitely got a feel of history to it. The rooms and surrounding are beautiful. Wish I had stayed here for a night. Maybe on my next visit.

We stayed there for two nights with another family. The first impression was that of a nice heritage building with an old world charm but modern facilities. We had made the reservation through Booking.com and were not aware of the names of the rooms. We were offered Gingy and Arcot rooms which seemed too small for us. We were two... More

This is a very sweet, old colonial hotel oozing with charm. I stayed in two different rooms and both looked like movie sets, furnished with wicker loungers, colonial four-poster beds, old French armoires and mahogany desks. There are wonderful vintage prints and photos on walls both in the rooms and throughout the airy, historic hallways. From a design perspective, it... More

4 stars for good and friendly staff. memories of good service goes a long way. I did like the rooms but in my mind the breakfast buffet could be displayed more aesthetically. The back of the restaurant is dark and congested. Loved the large poster canopy bed and the room size was decent.The receptionists were super helpful and the housekeeper... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The magic of the whole Orient in one name: Pondicherry, where the French set up a new coastal lifestyle. Only a French flirtation with India’s bewildering diversity could have produced the refined and elusive magic of Pondicherry. Now, this French 18th century in India is brought alive again in a virtual art gallery with etchings and hand written postcards.Recreated in high-raftered ceilings with savonnerie rugs and easy chairs to lounge away the afternoons. Four poster beds – one accessed by three stairs! To help you recreate your past with dreams. Savour a French mansion full of Indian warmth.Enjoy fine Creole eating where Tamil spices mix with subtle French under-statement to titillate the palates of gourmets. ... more   less
