Your experience here will depend on the room you get. One room has an entrance that opens onto the street and is not really part of the main hotel. We booked " an old world room" and were given an really small attic room with a steep flight of stairs to enter the room, and another bunch of steps to...

What a pleasure it was to stay in this hotel located in the heart of French Quarter. Beautifully appointed rooms with old colonial furniture, excellent service, helpful staff all of that at a reasonable price. .

- living in an eighteenth century building. So close to the beach! Rustic internal structure and ambiance. From the staircase to the furnitures, everything has this old charm! Staffs are courteous! Food from the restaurant could be a bit tastier

Stayed for 2 days with wife and 2 years old kid, took the room with balcony, felt like home as it was comfortable stay and service was very good. Mr Shakti ensured nice hospitality and the location of hotel is at the heart of puducherry so all the tourist attractions are quite nearby.

In the French quarters, the hotel is quaint and comfortable. rooms aren't lavish but are clean and provide you with most of the things you needs. Pocket-friendly hotel in the heart of the city. Walking distance to some great restaurants and the sea side. The restaurant at the hotel has limited options but the food is great.

This is a third time I've stopped in a Neemrana Resort and they have a formula that has appeal to some. All the rooms have their own charm, all are quite different, all have their advantages and, in my experience, their drawbacks. There were a large group of us and we were pretty travel exhausted. My room was on the...

We had visited this hotel with our couple friends. They have got rooms with different themes. The arrangements inside and outside the rooms with antique furnitures are simply awesome. I bet you will love it, if you like to be part of history. The location of this hotel is just perfect. Just walkable distance to beach. They provide complimentary breakfast...

If you want a smart modern hotel that looks like so many others then go find one, but if you want lots of character and interesting old furniture and a feeling of grandure (although a slightly shabby) then stay at the Hotel del'Orient and you will love it. Once inside it feels like a cool haven away from the heat...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Only a French flirtation with India’s bewildering diversity could have produced the refined and elusive magic of ‘Pondicherry’ which contains the magic of the whole Orient in one name. Now, this French 18th century coastal lifestyle in India is brought alive again in a home which is a virtual art gallery with etchings and hand written postcards all over its walls. Recreated in high-raftered ceilings with savonnerie rugs and easy chairs to lounge away the afternoons. Four poster beds – (one accessed by three stairs ! ) – to help you recreate your past with dreams. Savour a French mansion full of Indian warmth. Enjoy fine Creole eating where Tamil spices mix with subtle French under-statement to titillate the palates of gourmets. ... more   less
