Wh have just spent a week at Coramandal and enjoyed our stay. It is within walking distance from most sights and a 10 minute walk to the French quarter. Very friendly. Simple and inexpensive breakfast (lovely cup of tea)! Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful location; clean rooms; spacious enough; warm hospitality. I may choose the same hotel in my future Pondicherry trips. There is a terrace where you can enjoy the dinner peacefully. The free WiFi is fast enough!

This hotel is a very friendly place with pleasant rooms in a nice and safe neighbourhood away from all the noise of a town. Almost all places of tourist interest and all of the shops and main streets are within walking distance. The manager and his staff rendered an excellent service .The breakfast is realy nice and the servive is very flexible and we ernjoyed our stay very much. The sea front is very attractive and still very colonial. Do not hesitate to visit this place for several days..

Lovely old building run by very helpful people. The best laundry service we have had in India. Good location with everything in walking distance. Highly recommend a stay here for ease of exploring Pondicherry.

The Coramandal, variously spelt substituting the 'a' for an 'o' could quite possibly be the best address for attacking the town of Puducherry in SE India. You'll want to be
one of the 95% non-Indian who stick to their plans having reserved a room at this 10-unit well-kept property a few steps from Rue des Missions, a main thoroughfare running parallel to Pondy's MGR or Mahmatma Ghandi Road. You'll have great neighbours in the cathedral just around the corner and it is certainly useful having the Nilgiri Supermarket around the corner too !
Raja and Jaya are the hands-on staff keeping a tight ship and attending to the minute needs visitors to Pondy have. There's a staircase to negotiate but you'll be rewarded in two outdoor areas with furniture for when you fancy a bit of heat and fresh air. Roomside is certainly comfortable with combinations of A/C and ceiling fan and reliably hot hot water with great pressure. For longer stays the room will be made up every two days and this might require a bit of attention in the replenishment of bits and pieces but nothing is a problem for management. You'll want to quiz Jaya on water downstairs. You have three Wifi signals to help yourself to should one or two fail and there's a small library in the lobby area for the analog among us.
Think of it is a retreat from the cacophony and challenges of town. Plenty of leafy foliage around matches the height of the building meaning up top you've got a pretty good view. That 'golden time' between 0545 and 0800 until the tooting and hooting start up is para-religious.
Sorties will reveal useful supplies at the well-stocked fruitery, a watch repair hole-in-the wall namely K.M Watch Repairing and the many bookstores (yes bookstores!) The venerable vegetarian chain Suruguru is about 2 minutes away and may well become a permanent fixture. The inexpensive buffet breakfasts at the charming heritage hotels in the French quarter may tempt but if the walk deters, Coromandel management can put on a continental treat to match the savories you'll be taking in during the day. There are not a few pizza joints within a block and if you really must have a coffee, then Baker Street and Bon Bake are perhaps 10 minute's walk.
While there are more than a handful of tempting properties, few with more than a dozen rooms and some good ones in the quieter French quarter, the Coromandel might just have the formula right when it comes to marrying the Tamil town to the French town. The human touch that Raja and Jaya provide set it all off however and you'll find yourself returning should you get down to Pondy again.
Consider it by all means.

We booked the basic room and it was very basic. No ventilation and very little space to move around. Had booked for four nights but checked out after one night. Only stay here in one of the more expensive rooms

The best place about the hotel is that it is in the center of the town with lots of shops and restaurants, on a street that cuts MG Road.This place is actually an old home that has been converted to a heritage hotel. Hence do not expect a super fresh, spanky and great looking room or bathroom. Both are decently kept to retain the original home fittings (remember the old black electric switches)..If you wish to stay close to the Ashram or French colony, and do not spend much time in the room, then good place to go to. However if you expect a good looking hotel and excellently kept room/bath, then you may want to choose another hotel (saw one great looking hotel on the beach road facing the beach).Pricing: expensive for the room..
