Ranked 73 of 490 hotels in Pondicherry
Got a great deal from makemytrip and booked their AC Deluxe Room. I have earlier read that the roof rooms are good and you can get a good view of the sea but I would say better to go for 1st floor rooms bcoz 1) The roof rooms have low ceiling 2) Lacks privacy as anybody can be there and its good only if you are in group and occupy all of them 3) All the AC machines are in there so did not feel that comfortable with too much hot air blowing in. We got a 1st floor room, neat and tidy, clean bathroom and complimentary toiletries. I guess they have dorms as well. Good staff and they allowed to stay on for some more time as we had a late night bus to Bangalore. Regarding location of the hotel its on the road to Auroville. The nearest proper beach is Serenity/Banana beach which is towards Pondicherry, about 2 kms. This hotel is just after the check post where they normally stop travellers to check if anybody is carrying liquor from Pondicherry as this part is Tamil Nadu. One more good beach is further away towards Pondicherry unversity. On the whole good place to stay at this price, but too many college goers so was a bit disturbing at night.
I visited Puducherry with the intention of exploring this former French colony and taking photographs of the buildings and beaches. I was on a very tight budget as I had a wedding also to attend in Chennai and since I was traveling alone I just wanted a place with fan, bed and locker. Vedanta Wake Up is a chain of hotels that provides dorm types rooms with bunk beds for solo travelers and proper rooms for couples and families. True to the pictures, the room had a malfunctioning air conditioner, fan, cupboard, two bunk beds I. E. Four beds with sufficient space to move about. A common sink and wash basin were outside the room and thankfully they were pretty clean. Probably due to the fact that there were not many guests staying in the dorm rooms. There were only two of us. The bedsheets, pillow covers and towels were clean. The bed and pillow were pretty comfortable too. The room had enough of charging sockets too. Mohan was the on duty manager in the morning and was an extremely affable guy. He helped me out figuring out the basic essentials for my day long trip and good places to eat nearby besides guiding me with activities to be enjoyed in Pondicherry. One problem is that the property is locked down in the night for the safety of the guests. Hence, you will need to take down phone numbers of the night duty managers in case you want to leave early in the morning and want the gate unlocked. The dorm/lodge does not have any restaurant facility. However down the road on the main East Coast Road you will see this roadside dosa stall by the name Anbu. You definitely need to take a trip to that shack for its mouth watering dosas and pooris. Despite, the sweltering 40 degree temperature in Pondicherry I devoured 3 plates of pooris and dosas. For dinner you will need to walk 100 meters uphill from the lodge to this silent restaurant called Lumeria. They serve steaks and burgers and chicken dosas. Sincerely amiable and affable, you will love their delicious yet relatively cheap food there. I think I had the best time as far as staying was concerned. I would not want to do anything differently and would advise everyone to take up residence in this lodge.
I chose this hotel because I read many reviews about this hotel. However, on the recommendation of a friend I booked the room. After spending 3 nights I can say that this is really a good hotel. More importantly the quality of food was excellent. Do not miss buffet dinner. The staff is very soft spoken and prompt to your needs. I found this hotel worth.
