Excellent stay, generous staff

Posted 6 Oct, 2015

I stayed in Pondicherry for my PHD interview. The hotel staff were very generous and let me check-in hours before my check-in as I arrived in Pondicherry very early in the morning and also let me check-out at the regular check-out time. I have never seen any hotel do this. The decor in the front sitting area is stunning. The whole vibe that I got from the place was like my grandmother's place. It was very homely experience. You can use the kitchen. There is a dining table so that you may have your meals and food or just view the TV with everyone. The rooms are good. The furniture is all retro. Wooden cupboards, old fashioned wooden cots, wooden cabinet. The sheets look retro too. It was a well-connected area with various places to eat at. I would have however, liked food to be served at the hotel. The travel wasn't a problem either. Overall, a very homely pleasureable stay at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Centrally located & affordable hotel

Posted 14 Mar, 2016

It's a good hotel which provides an affordable, comfortable and cosy stay. It's not a big hotel so, it provides a homely environment not like the commercial establishments. This has its perks and problems. You won't get modern amenities like LED TV, phones etc in the rooms but you get to revel in the old school way of living. It's gives you that classical vibe which makes you feel comfortable (this is maybe a deal breaker for some, to each its own). All necessary amenities are there like clean bed sheets, warm water (you have to be satisfied with old geezers), a CRT TV and toiletries. The staff were courteous and helpful and will help you to find rental vehicles and will give you good tips regarding places to see. Another plus point is that they provide you an appetising breakfast. The promenade beach is at walk-able distance where you can see the famous beach sunrise in the morning.

It was well-maintained & a good stay

Posted 13 Feb, 2016

I visited this place last January and it was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The rooms were spacious. Courteous staff and a great ambiance. We were a little early than the mentioned check in time and the reception staff were more than happy to let us check-in early without much fuss. The morning breakfast buffet was lavish as well. Ever since my stay there, I have been recommending my friends visiting Pondy to stay there.

Best service and well-maintained rooms

Posted 30 Nov, 2015

It was my first visit to Pondicherry with my family and I took a stay in a different hotel but was not happy and thought of changing it. I happened to see this Ram guest house when I came out of the church as the church was close to it. The owner of the guest was very nice and spoke to me and gave the best deal. He also offered cab services for sightseeing at the best rate. If I compare the rates the stay and the cab rates that I enquired other places were very higher and this was decent. So Ram guest house is not into profit making organisation. The place is awesome. Close to church, station and eateries. Its on the main road. Its well maintained and the rooms are clean and room service is also good. The place gave a me peace of mind and had a homely feeling.
