We stayed for 2 days and 1 night, hotel rooms were clean, room service was good, good budget hotel you wont feel as if u r paying some extra penny for your stay, worth staying, the only drawback is hotel doesn't have restaurant.The hotel is at moderate distance from the places but it was okay for us as we have taken some bikes on rent. One imp info do have your lunch and dinner on time, most of the restaurants wont serve lunch after 4pm and dinner after 10/10.30pmMust Visit places in pondi1) paradise beach2) rock beach in late evening (its awesome)3) wandering in French colonies (do try French cuisine der)4) auroville city5) auro beach

Very decent place to stay, would recommend! very near to the shopping places and the bus stand. Comfort stay and value for money, also have a generator so didnt feel any discomfort even when there was no current.

The rooms were very clean and the hospitality was good. The staff is very polite and excellent! If there was a facility to avail food there it could be better. But there are good places to eat nearby. It is very accessible from the bus stand, just a road crossing away. Its preferable to walk there from the bus stand instead of taking an auto rickshaw, as the auto drivers charge very much!

I stayed at Raj Residency in April first week. My stay was comfortable. As am alone I took a single A/C room. Room & Bathroom were clean. AC, TV, Wifi
everything worked fine. This hotel is at a walk-able distance from bus-stand. They don't have a Restaurant. Staff are very courteous. They helped me with directions, places to visit etc., I booked the hotel through go ibibio and my check-in time was at 12. But I wanted to check-in at 7 in the morning. Hence I called them few days before & adjusted check-in & check-out timings. I did check-in on 7th morning at 8am and checked out at 8am next day. While checking-out, I requested them that I would like to use room for an hour in the evening and they helped me with that. I left my luggage at the hotel while checking out, came back in the evening to freshen up before leaving the city. they didn't charge me anything extra for this.
Best hotel to stay if you are a solo traveller and is comfortable enough for 2-3 members. If you want spacious rooms and a luxurious style, then you may not want to opt this place. Safe for women. 3kms from Aurobindo Ashram, Rock beach & Vinayak temple. If I ever travel to pondy again, I will definitely choose this place.
Only complaint was that plug points are not working properly in the room I stayed. so I found it a bit difficult to charge my mobile. I reported this issue to the manager & hopefully they have taken care of this now.

The stay was great and comfortable. It is a decent budget hotel. Though it was 24 hour checkout, manager allowed us to checkout by 3pm as there wasn't any booking on that weekday. We booked AC Deluxe room for 4 guests. We were given a two room apartment, which also had a dining area. There was refrigerator in both rooms, TV in one room, geysers in both bathrooms and ACs in both rooms were working well. Hotel does not have a restaurant, they only prepare and serve tea/coffee. Other food items for breakfast, they were ready to buy from elsewhere and serve us. Only one issue with the hotel and the same is the case with many hotels in Pondichery. Beds and towels were clean. The drainage is open and it smells bad, just at the entrance of the hotel. But then even some other expensive hotels face the same problem in this area. Good service overall and they try hard to overcome this disadvantage. Once you are inside the rooms, you don't face any problems.

The location is very good, just opposite to the bus-stand which makes side-seeing easier and saves time. There is less disturbance and noise-free. The stay is worth the money spent. The hotel service was average.

The property is good. Rooms were small but quite okay for 2 people or a family of three. The staff was cooperative. They do not have a kitchen but there are many restaurants which would deliver the food of your choice.

We stayed at Raj Residency in Jan, a good time to visit Pondicherry. This also meant difficult to get accommodations at reasonable prices. Raj Residency is a complete budget place just opposite the bus stand, the lane which leads to the hotel is a bit off. However the staff is polite and helpful. They are very flexible with timings with a little extra charge. The Hotel look like an apartment converted into rooms but its clean & the AC works!!. Overall a place to park your baggage and roam around the whole day and come back to doze off. its 3 kilometres from the White Town but Rickshaws are easily available with an average charge of Rs 80.
