“Flooded room, no compensation as promised. Terrible experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We thought this would be a nice fairly reasonably priced hotel near the water. We weren't looking for luxury. We arrived to find our room flooded, the AC leaking water all over the floor. We wanted a different room but they cleaned it up and promised it would not be a problem again. They assured us that if it did, we would be compensated. In the morning at 5:30 we woke up to discover the floor was completely flooded again...by slipping in the water on the way to the bathroom. The extra mattresses we were using to sleep on on the floor were completely soaked. We went downstairs to complain and all they would offer was to switch rooms for the next night. We were not staying for the next night! After over an hour of trying to talk to the hotel staff, we finally got ahold of the manager. He refused anything beyond not charging us for the mattress on the floor. Completely unacceptable. We would not recommend this hotel under any circumstances. Go elsewhere.

We were a family of 5 so we had taken the top most room with 2 king size cots. This room is almost on the terrace and you get a beautiful view of the sea. Rooms are good, spacious and clean. Service is also good. Economically priced. Its on the Promenade sea shore. Staff is cordial.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 404. it has 2 King size cots. Beautiful sea view. It also has a sit out area.

I stayed at the room at ground floor. The room is fairly sized but has got no external views. Bed, AC & bath were good but not lavish as its more of a budget accommodation. Biggest positive is that it's located next to the sea, so the evenings get happening around the hotel.

We were happy to get rooms here at very short notice. The biggest advantage of this place is the proximity to the sea and the restaurants and sea view from the hotel room. Rooms were decent & staff were nice & friendly.

We went pondy on Feb 1st 2014 from Bangalore. Reached there by 2PM. tried to get rooms at some homestay. But all were full. So tried some hotels and they were also full. At last we found this place and they told they have 2 rooms on 2nd floor. We were 4 adults and 3 kids. So we took those 2 rooms. Rs. 1800 INR per night for one double room.

Pros: Room was clean. Bathroom was big and clean. Had TV . AC was good. Bed was good.
Cons: AC is set to 20, we cant increase or decrease it. Parking was the main problem for us. We were on 2 cars and they dont have parking area. We struggled to park our car.

If you going to roam around the city and using the room just to sleep then this is good. If you are planing to spend more time in the room you planing to book, then stay away from this place.

Thanks

Room Tip: I think some room have small balconies. we took one in 2nd floor. room number was 433. It had a balc...

This hotel was our solution to being turned away by its neighbor. The hotel has very little to its merit except its proximity to the promenade. The room was decent though the lock was a bit wobbly. Bathrooms were OK.
We were on the ground floor so can't comment on the sea view rooms above. Though I am not very sure you should call a widow you would have to crank your neck out a sea view.


Ac was a problem at first but it went on to make our room really cold. Overall it is a decent option but you can probably find better accommodation for cheaper price in Pondicherry.
