Beautifully located tiny place with cute staircases, rooms and terraces. There is absolutely nothing to do inside French Villa except retiring late in the night and sleeping. Service is non existant. You don't even realize people own this place until someone produces the bill and you pay the amount. There is some tiny restaurant in the ground floor, but we...

Pink Walls under shades of pretty pink bougainvilleas, it's a budget stay in the French part of the town. Quiet and cool with lots of green on its terrace and balcony, it provides for a peaceful stay. The rooms are air-conditioned, clean and nice albeit nothing extravagant. Their kitchen wasn't functional during my stay. Very close to the sea, located...

The location is excellent, on a pretty and quiet street very close to a number of cafés and bars as well as the sea front. The room was rustic but clean with a small balcony and TV (with BBC world service). It was nicely furnished and a nice place to come home to after a day exploring the local area....

The hotel is average, but our experience was made terrible by the extremely unpolite behaviour of the manager. We were proposed a price by the empolyee who received us at night and, at the moment of leaving, the manager by phone denied that tariff, raising it by 300 rupees, saying he was not responsible of what his own (HIS OWN!!)...

I wish Trip Advisor had another rating option of 'good' that is somewhere between 'average' and 'very good', because that is what i would wish to rate this place as. I had stayed for one night at this place with my husband and my mother in October, 2008 - the location is simply excellent with everything (restaurants, boutiques, antique shops)...

It was a comfortable room with a clean bathroom. Had air-conditioning and water heater. A little difficult to find at first, but was a good stay. Walking distance to the promenade and restaurants nearby. Worth 1500 rupees per night. Would definitely go back for a stay :)
