            Solo Vacation to Pondicherry”

            Choosing to stay here was one of the best decisions of my solo Pondicherry trip. The place has a traditional Tamil charm, yet amenities are all modern to see to your comfort. The staff is so warm and welcoming ️ They took my homemade chai requests without any extra cost. The food at the restaurant is good too. I was psyched about the free cycles they provide that you can take any time to roam around the town!! Mr. Sam John, who is heading the team at Maison has really good suggestions to explore Pondicherry. Thank you Maison_Perumal for the lovely stay

            The property is truly heritage with beautiful spaces and exceedingly polite staff.”

            If you harbour expectations of over-the-top hotel infrastructure like pools and gyms etc., look the other way. This place is for those who wish to soak in the tamil-french eclectic vibe. Beautiful open terrace, tainted glasses in rooms, book shelves with classic literature, swings to spend you hours, charming stairways and a cozy dining area with a fine breakfast. Staff is truly hospitable and makes you feel more like your own farmhouse than a hotel.

            A really lovely heritage hotel with exceptional staff. Rooms were spacious, simply furnished and spotlessly clean. Slightly out of the way of the main heritage area ( a few minutes by Tuk Tuk) but in all other respects a perfect place to stay.

            The hotel street has less crowd compared to other near-by major streets. Food is good and not over priced. Staff is very humble, friendly and helpful. This is a traditional house converted into hotel, so you will have a homely feel here. I feel the rates are much higher for the non-sea view hotel and facilities provided. Room size was also small than what I expected as per rates.

            Its located in heart of the city. A cycle ride away from promenade. As soon as I entered it was as though I got disconnected from the worries of the outside world. The staff is very good. The food is excellent though limited. We had initially booked a studio which was very small for us and our infant,upon request within no time they got us upgraded to a bigger room with a minimal charge. Room service is prompt. They have small activities planned for the day. A small pool would have done wonders but not to worry as upon request we can use the pool at their sister property , we did not ise it but were informed. Overall an excellent stay.

            This is not for those who want a big hotel feel - a La Hilton, etc. this is a small, local character felt place with a soul, as are the staff. A $2 tuk tuk ride to the French White Town area. I had 3 nights and would have stayed longer if I could. Embrace the Culture.
