The rooms are so cute and the best maintained rooms I have seen in Pondicherry. I stayed in Room 2 and I loved it. It was perfect where room 2 did not get mobile reception. It was peaceful and I had a very relaxed stay. Annie the owner was very helpful and cheerful. The staff was very accommodating as well.

I stayed at La Closerie last weekend and it was one of my worst hotel stay experience. Firstly the hotel is far from being a heritage hotel as they claim and they use this tag to claim a high price and deliver less. Our room was not clean, we were not provided with a blanket and were provided with another... More

La Closerie is one of the best properties which has been uniquely designed to stay in Pondicherry. The architecture, the vintage wooden doors, a beautiful garden and a swimming pool is something that's very appealing about the property. It takes only 1 min from La Closerie to the beach. The staff is very professional, disciplined and friendly which you will... More

My husband and I went to Pondicherry just reading reviews on Tripadviser and through a local friend who owns a restaurant- Rendezvous.. So my friend suggested a few places out of which I chose La Closerie because of reviews, the ratings and the pictures of the rooms and public spaces that I saw online. The moment we walked in, we...
