Neat and clean. Located in French quarter of the town. Beach road is just one minute walk. Majority of star rated restaurants are within walking distance. Downtown shopping is accessible by auto rickshaw. Food quality is good. Hot and cold breakfast is okay. Highly recommended.

This is a gorgeous boutique hotel within walking distance of most of the sights in Pondicherry. Staying here felt as though we were still in the old French colony. The terrace where we were served breakfast is full of antiques and beautiful timber furniture and our room which opened onto the terrace was similar in the way it was furnished....

This place is beautiful! The service is amazing and the breakfast was gorgeous! Such a shame it was booked up and I could only stay one night. They even managed to organise a taxi at short notice from Chennai. The bed is super comfortable to. I really can't fault this place.

We stayed at Les Hibiscus for two nights in early December as part of a 3 week trip in India staying at a variety of hotels and b&b's. It was easily the loveliest place we stayed at and would be a hit anywhere in the world. It is a tiny hotel with only four guest rooms (I think) situated in...

It's been a year since I visited this place. But the memories are still profound that compelled me to write this review. It was my first solo trip & I picked this place because of the wonderful reviews on Trip advisor & I was not disappointed. It was more than I could expect. I was lucky to get a reservation...

Everything about Les Hibiscus was great. The breakfast was second to none. The room large and clean and there were plenty of common areas to sit about in. Good wifi connection. Staff were beyond helpful. Extremely good value for money. I could not recommend it highly enough.
