    Great little guesthouse with friendly staff”
    Rooms are clean and spacious, location is right in the middle of the French area and near the beach. The staff and owners are really helpful. Breakfast is an additional charge but worth it. I'd stay here again.

    below average stay”
    i had booked this hotel before 1 month of my stay and had requested to give me upper floor room with blue interiors. owner had replied me that he will do that for me. i was eccited to stay at l'escale aftr reading the reviews but was very disappointed when i reached there because i didnt get the room which i requested. the staff on reception was rude and gave us ground floor room which was like a cave. only good thing was view from terrace. at this price anyone can opt for neighbouring hotels which are far more better

    Hello Abhinav First of all sorry you did not enjoy your stay at l escale At l escale we note requests from Agoda clients and do all we can for the request to be carried out . The requests sometimes can not be carried out and i do understand this can be frustrating Booking directly with us is a very good option and just picking up the phone and talking to someone can help for a misunderstanding being resolved before your arrival Booking direct you will find breakfast is included. I will look into the staff not being polite at reception as this feed back is important to me Please if you come again to Pondicherry come and see us again.i would love to meet you Nicholas

    Beautiful property, excellent location and very helpful staff. ”
    I was travelling with a 10 month old and needed access to the kitchen and the staff was very helpful. They would insist on helping with the baby and getting the room cleaned so that the baby could play on the floor. Also the location was excellent, at the heart of Pondicherry. Everything you need is a stone's throw away, and promenade is just behind.

    Love, Love, Love this Cute Guest House!”
    Pros: 1) Location - can't beat that! It's close to the seafront and all the restaurants in Pondicherry. 2) Hospitality - Nick, the host, was super friendly and very helpful. 3) Cleanliness - super clean! 4) Facilities - I had all I needed (well, almost...Wifi is a bit spotty which I was warned ahead of time by Nick) - AC, attached bathroom with hot shower, balcony (ask for top floor!), closet with hangers, etc. Cons: 1) No breakfast when I booked via Agoda - which was not a big deal for me at least. Overall: Highly recommended!

    Had an excellent stay at L'escale”
    I would like to thank L'escale and its team for providing us with such an awesome stay. The place is calm and beautiful with an ocean view. The rooms are pretty neat. It was exciting to notice that there was only minimum use of plastic products within the premises.

    Cozy stay in the French Quarter”
    Nicely done up guesthouse/hotel with 6-7 rooms. We stayed at the Romaine Rolland room. Decently maintained building and room, but the sheets could be cleaner, not sure if they had been changed! Bear in mind that this room had a curtain instead of a door for the bathroom, but it was a couple of steps higher and went through a passage so was not uncomfortable. There is also a lounge area just outside the room with a mini fridge and collection of books. Located towards the end of the French quarter on a street parallel to the promenade, everything is walkable! The rooftop serves breakfast, but didn't try it. Overall nice place with tasteful decor and pleasant vibes, very good value for money, would definitely stay again!

    Good value”
    The character of a facility is demonstrated by how well and quickly it responds to unforseen situations. I am happy to report that despite malfunctions in cooling equipment the management acted speedily by 1) Cheerfully crediting one nights room charges 2) shifting us to a better room as soon as available 3) following up continuously to ensure that the rest of our stay was seamless and comfortable. The hotel is very well situated one block away from the boardwalk with a phenomenal sea view from the rooftop breakfast bar. Convenient to transport, dining, heritage buildings and very quiet. I look fwd to being a repeat customer and have no hesitation in recommending the property.

    it is located in french town zone, so it is not too crowded, it is very calm zone, it is near the beach also. It's a good place for the person who needs the peace and the relax time. The roof top is a nice place for chilling or chitchatting. But one thing is wifi is not strong for the ground floor, i have to move the chair next to the door to get signal.
