This was my 2nd stay in a Neemrana hotel and I am happy that I chose them again. Neemrana's Hotel De L'Orient has an old world charm and offered the exact colonial experience that I expected in Pondicherry. As soon as you enter the hotel, you will be transported back in time to the colonial era - feeling that you...

Neemrana's staff has been great and very communicative when we booked our holiday in Dec 2015 and had to cancel and re-book for February 2016 due to the floods that happened in the south that year. This was our wedding anniversary weekend gateway. We arrived at the property late at night after a cab ride from Chennai. It was nice...

We had a very comfortable stay at the Orient. The hotel is easy to find and located in a clean neighbourhood. It was like stepping back in time when you enter the hotel. We were looking for a clean place to stay while in Pondy and the historic feel was a bonus. The staff was friendly throughout and their restaurant...

Hotel de l'Orient, beautifully restored old building leaving behind all the charm and very few changes were done only to suit today's requirements. Comfortable place to stay with very helpful staff. The courtyard in the center really opens up the space which helps in a way for your kids to get that extra open space to run around and play.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The magic of the whole Orient in one name: Pondicherry, where the French set up a new coastal lifestyle. Only a French flirtation with India’s bewildering diversity could have produced the refined and elusive magic of Pondicherry. Now, this French 18th century in India is brought alive again in a virtual art gallery with etchings and hand written postcards.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
