It's a budget value hotel i stayed in puducherry and little far from beach. Those who don't want to stay inside the city crown can stay here with friends, Get together, Marriage functions, couples, Family too. Very neat room and i will refer my friends to stay back. If you are planning by car or bike so you can reach to hotel directly or if planned to come by Bus or Train you have to take auto or Cab to reach this hotel & Friendly staff. Vivek sir guided me near by swimming pool do i spent some time over there.

The hotel is located 7 kilometers from the Pondicherry main bus stand. The rooms are clean and air-conditioned. The hotel also has a restaurant. The staff are co-operative. It can get difficult to communicate. The hotel is in the outskirts and one has to go at least a kilometer to buy anything. This place is best suited for people who travel with their own vehicle or hire a vehicle during their stay. The hotel accommodates late check-out and early check-in based on the availability. The place is relatively close to Paradise beach.

the hotel is far away from the city . there is only one person who serves food , takes your phone at the reception and comes with you for explaining anything . He has willingness to help but not a hotel to stay at . Moving in the city is too expensive as it is too too far from the places to visit . please skip this hotel whenever u r planning any visit to pondichery.

Okay, so I was all alone on my solo trip in Pondicherry and randomly booked this hotel. It was a surprise how warmly I was welcomed by the staff here. Not only they made my stay comfortable here but assisting in anything I need, they also helped me plan an itinerary by listing all the best places around. For some, the location might be a problem since its a little away from the main beaches and attractions, but you can rent a bike for the day which is not only cheap but a great way to explore the city. The breakfast was free and delicious and the hotel is decked with all the amenities you would need. It is clean and as a solo female traveller, I was touched by the helpfulness of the staff. In all, my stay was very comfortable and nice here. The only con will be the location but if you can overlook that, Hotel Arunachala is definitely a place to stay at! Much Re
