Reviewed 9 April 2016

Great old architecture gives you feeling of Portuguese era. Hotel is located centrally and can be easily approachable . An 8-minute walk from Sri Manakula Vinayagar Temple, this elegant hotel in a converted 18th-century residence – which once housed the Mayor of Pondicherry – is 5 minutes from Promenade Beach

Firstly, this property has a great location: right in the heart of the French Quarters with its cafes and boutiques, and a stone's throw from the Promenade and the Park. Secondly, the management has made a good effort in converting this old bungalow into a comfortable boutique hotel, much like many others in the vicinity. The room allotted to us...

After reading how great this restaurant was I eagerly looked forward to a fine dinner but this was not to be. The food was adequate but the service and experience was terrible. No candle was put on my table and perhaps that was to hide the dirt smears in the center of the table. No one checked on me at...
