These are some of the best hotels in Pondicherry. The city is also known for its variety of options in terms of food. On your trip there, it would be fun to explore some of the best places to eat in Pondicherry. Do share your experiences here.
Two wrong items of information. 1. CLUB MAHINDRA or Zest Big Beach is Not close to the Railway station. The resort is fantastic, but is 18 kms from the city, and in the middle of nowhere. Once you reach there, you are completely isolated. 2. The Accord Is also not close to the Commercial centre of Puducherry. It is located at a very busy and noisy intersection. Bang on the Highway.
I love Pondicherry, I think it is one of the most beautiful places in our country and makes for a refreshing take on scenic India! I disagree to the fact that these hotels are faraway from the railway station or the city centre as I have stayed in almost all of them. Believe it or not, I was here for a one month internship. I think these pretty properties are as close to both these points as much as they can be. I am in college and we were 5 friends travelling and it is not wrong to conclude that these places are moderately close to or far away from the prime areas of the city. So I agree that they are relatively close by. I love the old French colony area the most and Le Cafe is a great place to eat out. I keep coming back here with a bunch of my close friends. Pretty pics. cheers :) :) :)
