We arrived at the hotel a bit earlier but they told they will not allow till 12 and gave an excuse that the room is getting cleaned. There was no hot water and water heater was provided to use hot water. If you are planning late night then this hotel is not your choice as they close the gate by 11:30. The AC in the room is not working. 2 wheeler parking is available.

Me and my wife had visited Pondicherry in the month of oct'17. We had a decent comfortable stay at Vellvett Villa. It is recommended for travellers looking for a budget stay in Pondicherry. It's centrally located so parking might be a challenge, however one can park.a small car infront of the entrance. Communicating with the staffs might become difficult since few of them would understand English, otherwise the staffs are cordial and helpful.

This is a 2 story old residential building of which 1st and 2nd floor is converted into a hotel. It has basic facilities don't expect much, rooms are tiny and the walls need a coat of paint. I had a complementary breakfast which was good (as they cook in their home kitchen at ground floor). Staff is helpful. I didn't had lunch or dinner there. It is centrally located one can cover most of the spot in Pondicherry from here, which should be in a radius of 2 km.

Centrally located and decent place to stay .. we could walk to mostly everywhere from here. Its Near the bus stand also. Rooms are small but adequate. Its not a really french experience. If you're looking for a villa kinda nice place then this isnt really your first choice but if you'd rather experience pondicherry by foot and on a budget then this is ok. Dont expect too much . its so so and pocket happy place.

We stayed three nights at this hotel and we love it. The staff is very friendly, room and badroom are very clean and there is a large rooftop terrace. Simple but o.k. breakfast. Location is not far from the French Quarter and boulevard. It is easy to see all the attractions by foot.

I was bit worried about the quality of the stay, when I booked as it was a long weekend and there were no other hotels available. But it was great and the staff were also helpful. The location is also good as its 10-15 mins walk to the Rock beach. We had to park the car on the Road though, as there was no dedicated parking place.

We stayed at this hotel during our last trip to Pondicherry. It’s a heritage house converted into a hotel. The location of hotel is good; French colony, promenade, baker street are within 15-20 minutes. Rooms are small but clean. They have decorated the rooms with nice bright colors which give a fresh look. Hotel also has a terrace where you can relax. It serves free breaksfast but we didn’t have breaksfast in hotel since we had already planned to go to Baker Street. About staff- I would like to share an incident. One of my friends forgot his umbrella in hotel. He realized it after check out so we went back to hotel. Since none of us could speak Tamil, it was difficult to communicate with the staff as to where he had kept it. Hotel staff checked but they couldn’t find umbrella. So we left hotel and reached bus stand to catch our bus. While we were waiting for the bus to come, hotel staff reached bus stand with the umbrella. We were truly stunned! We offered him money but he refused to take. We were simply amzed by the honesty and hospitality shown by the staff! Kudos to you guys!!
