A beautiful villa in the French quarter of Pondicherry. The villa is tastefully decorated with classical Tamil motifs and a collection of antiquities. Rooms are large airy and comfortable. Breakfast is a mix of traditional South Indian dishes and some really nice French style bread like croissants and puff pastries along with fruit. The owners Mr. Bascarane and his wife...

Les Hibiscus is just flawless. Definitely one of those places that makes you feel good. We had a very spacious room with a huge and extremely comfortable bad. The hotel is just stunning: cosy, light and very pretty. The owner was very amiable and considerate. Breakfast was just perfect: fresh fruit followed by croissants and toast, omelette, dosa, freshly-squizzed juice...

Its just a tranquil haven and situated just a short walk from the fantastic promenade and shopping areas. Its just awesome and the staff are...

This hotel deserves all the good reputation it already has. Big rooms and bathrooms, friendly staff, fresh-pressed welcome juice, kits for tea/coffee and bathroom kits that are just spot-on right, beautiful furniture, comfy beds, yummy breakfast, highest standard of fans and AC. All this for just under €40 per night is a bargain. The only minus I could think of...

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 for three nights. On arrival the staff were very friendly and welcoming and our room was large and clean. The hotel is located in the French quarter, close to the train station, the waterfront and lots of nice shops, and places to eat & drink. There was also a mixture of Indian as well as European food (eg...
