“A budgeted comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

First I would like to mention that I am a resident of Pondicherry and my house is right behind this hotel. So one day I strolled in and requested them to show me the rooms for writing a review. Immediately they accepted my request and took me for a tour around the hotel. And I am writing here my opinions after visiting it. First of all Bringing your children for a vacation and staying here is a big mistake. This is situated right in the heart of the city. So when you come on a formal or business visit then booking a room here is an ideal choice. The restauant provides hygienic palatable food. The rooms are clean and decent with a nominal rent. The hospitality is also appreciable. So dont expect too much; But for the price they give you, you will be given more. " VALUE STAY".

Room Tip: Choose the rooms that are on the interior sides. The traffic noise will disturb your stay.

We had booked 3 rooms in advance at this hotel. They gave us 3 rooms in the 3rd floor but one of the room was reeking of cigarette smoke. We put our foot down and the manager offered us 3 rooms in the 1st floor.2 rooms were ok but the third had a lot of pesticide smell(choice was cigarette or pesticide).No towels or soap in the room. Very strict about check out. Overall a very average hotel.

Simple rooms, ac was working fine, good location near the market, about 1 km from the beach. The rooms at the third floor had a foul smell, probably due to the kitchen and hall on the same floor. Overall, based on the price, the hotel was ok.

Comfortable, clean, spacious hotel , ideal for family . Difficult to communicate with room service staff, because they hardly know english, leave hindi.

The food was ok, i mean you would like if you enjoy south indian meals.

The checkin/checkout time is very strictly adhered too. and they wouldnt allow extension of even half an hour.

The hotel is inside the city and good distance from the sea shore and french colony. The furniture is a bit old and he bathroom fittings are also a bit rusty. The water in the bathroom is very salty and not suitable for washing hair.

We managed to seek in one of our friends to stay with us for the night . So we were 4 of us staying in a double room, with a single extra bed. No one askied us anything.

Average accomodation, good for someone on a budget trip.

+ves:
Clean, Spacious Rooms (a double room is enough for 4 people to stay!!), Clean Bathrooms, Not pricey at all and pretty choice for Breakfast. Staff was quite polite but for some reason they did not give us the room when we went there first. After checking the availability online we approached them and then they gave us the rooms. Not a big things but did feel weird!! A lot of space to park your hired bike/car!! Not to far from Asian House which happens to be the only EDM club in Pondicherry

-ves.
Not close to the attractions/beaches but then again you could rent out a bike or car.
The hotel's restaurant is pure veg.

On the whole, not a bad place to stay if you don't want to spend too much on hotel.

This has been my second stay in 5 years. Nothing has changed much. The rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. Dont miss their South Indian lunch which offers great taste and pure value for money. It is my one shop stop when it comes to staying in Pondicherry.

We stayed in Hotel jayaram in March 2013 for a couple of nights. Room was quite clean, spacious, with ample ventilation and sunlight, and with cleaner bathrooms (as evident from my earlier reviews, I am very particular about that). We chose this hotel after looking at 3 other options and found this to be economical and good in terms of location. Hotel has ample 2/4 wheeler parking space. Staff is quite polite and helpful.

Its situated on the main road and well built when you look at it from outside. (we actually thought of it as an expensive hotel from its exterior look, but to our amaze, it turned out to be reasonable).
Very close to main market (Nehru Street), rocky beach and Aurobindo Aashram, are hardly 2km from hotel. Its own hotel at the ground floor serves very nice food in quite reasonable prices (its evident from the fact that on weekends, there's a waiting queue of people coming there to eat).

Just so you know, if you wish to eat at a Heritage hotel, visit Hotel Du Parc, next to Raj Nivas, on Nehru Street. Its a Governer House-turned-Hotel dates back to 1800s.

Overall, its a good option for budget stay with good food option.
