One of the best hotel in Pondi for the money they charged

Posted 9 Jul, 2016

You are all right with not having a hotel on the sea shore in pondi then this could one of the best hotel with the money they charge. It's in the center of city, most of the city attractions are very close from the hotel. We got some discounts from Goibibo and it really cost us 1000 bugs which was so less for this kind of hotel. We were bit circumspect about the hotel as it was not that costly but when we arrived to hotel everything was good about it. Rooms were very spacious, they were super good including toilets and best thing about the hotel was the food. They got terrace dining which was really fantastic. Staff was really helpful and it was really worth more than what we paid for the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are not looking for sea shore hotels.
