“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2010

I would recommend the readers not to visit this place at any point of time. Absolute misguidance in the net. The room ended where it degan. The Hotel staff were very rude and non responding. The rooms are not maintained, like irregular water supply. There was no reataurent. For these Amenities, the cost was too high.

The hotel claimed to be located in 5 mins walking distance from the beach. Actually, it is located 15-20 mins walking distance. The hotel is unclean, bedsheets are dirty, bathrooms are also not cleaned after the previous occupants left. I went w/ my family and parents in that hotel since no other hotel was available.

Not recommended for anyone.

this is small but nice hotel in the beautiful locality of lal bahadur shastri street in pondicherry.
this hotel is very near to the beach just 500 meters walk to beach & bazaar. The room i stayed in was the standar A/C room. A small LCD was installed in the room.
The room was small but cosy. It is a good value for money.though we were given a VIEW room but to our surprise only things visible from the window were old house roofs & a brandy shop.
...LOL...

Only drawback is that the hotel's restaturant is shut for renovation so you have to go to nearby places to have your meals.

I choose this hotel for its location. It is near to bus stand & railway station(hardly 5 mins) and also the beach is on walkable distance (5 mins).
Room was clean, service was ok. Only veg food available. Checkin/Checkout time was 12 pm noon. Staff was cooperative
Able to book this hotel from online & was having 15% discount coupon. So was able to stay in pondecherry below Rs 900/ day with some nice shopping experience. So its best value for money
