An Amazing place to stay in Pondicherry. Stayed there for 2 days and 2 nights and it was one of the best decisions. The location is very good and makes it easy to walk around and explore french architecture in Pondicherry. Very good service. Great view (next to the beach).

The location is the best you can get as the hotel gate opens onto the Rock Beach. The ocean view from the breakfast table was also great. The breakfast spread was good and the...
