The Hotel is in opposite to Indra Gandhi statue in the ECR. Simple Buffet Breakfast. Food is average. Room is average. Good wifi. Nice Rooftop Restaurant Cum Bar with large screen. Linens are not so good. Car Parking in rear street, but under CCTV cover, hence safe.

This is a pretty descent hotel located right on the main road. The rooms are spacious and has good room service. The best thing I liked about this place is the roof top restaurant. Its pretty classy while you enjoy the breeze.

Sorry for the delayed review about the hotel. This hotel is best in its class. The service, room, restaurant everything is awesome. Actually stayed for the new year celebration at the city. The location is central and near to bus stand even.

This is a decent & usual hotel and might be good for a business visit if you want to stay within the city. This isn't a place where you'll get a taste of the real Pondicherry as this is just an everyday hotel. Breakfast is fine although it's the same menu every day.

As per my sons the food is not spicy, but very yummy taste. The chettinadu style of gravies good with tiffen items.they liked stuffed parattaa and fried rice. They have lodging also, they can consider adding more items in their menu.
