Good Location, Awesome to stay

Posted 23 Nov, 2015

Visited Pondicherry for holidays with my Friends in the Pongal holidays. The trip was mesmerising and refreshed us from our busy lives. The overall Experience with the hotel was awesome. We didn't eat anything there as we preferred to eat new things in Pondicherry. So, don't know anything about the food there. The rooms of the hotel were quite nice and the beds were quite comfortable. We had a sound sleep there. Even the parking lot is quite good. So, no parking issues at all. The staff there is helpful and the service is also very fast. The Hotel doesn't have anything for re creative purposes like swimming pool or snooker etc. The wash room are also clean and properly disinfected. The wash room contains to wels, soaps, shampoos and toothpaste. We booked the hotel on goibibo and when we reached there, the receptionist told us that all the rooms were booked and they didn't get any message from goibibo and even the receptionist was rude at that time. That we talked to the manager and gave us our room and then the behaviour of the receptionist changed. This only the issue we faced otherwise the experience was good. I'll also advice the travellers to go for this hotel. On the whole the experience in the hotel was quite nice and a awesome city to visit.

Tasty food; near to shopping mall

Posted 21 Aug, 2014

I stayed in this hotel for 2 days with friends on a relaxing trip during the month of January. The hotel is easy to locate as it is near to the main bazaar. The shopping mall is a walkable distance from this hotel. The games and gym facility is not available. The travel desk facility was available. The tasty food was served and the Rasam served was very tasty. Both veg and non-veg food was available. The rooms are spacious, well maintained but windows are not there in the rooms. The pricing is worth for the service offered. It is recommendable for family stay. Pondicherry place is good and price of liquor is very cheap.
