Average rooms, helpful staff, good location. The lift, rooms, bathrooms deserve renovation. Did not justify the price we paid. The balconies were locked..could not open the windows. Breakfast spread was ok. We have visited Pondicherry twice before and have always wanted to stay at Promenade but this time when we actually got the booking, we were not very impressed.Would like...

The room the I stayed in was extremely large and the entire wall was a glass window overlooking the promenade. The bed was comfortable, the Air Conditioning was perfect. My bathtub had a Jacuzzi but the water pressure was so low that filling the tub was an ordeal. This is one of the most modern, large and comfortable hotel in...

We stayed in The Promenade from 25-29 March in a sea view room. The best part about this hotel is it's location. It's right on the beach with a perfect view of sunrise and the sea. This beach is rocky though. There are 2-3 restaurants in the hotel but I didn't like the food much. Menu is also a bit...

Excellent hospitality at a fantastic location - that is how I would sum up my stay at The Promenade, Pondicherry. Finding the hotel was easy, as it is located at the heart of the beautiful city of Pondicherry. Watch out for police barricades on the road leading to the entrance, if you are arriving late in the evening. The Check-in...

The redeeming thing about this hotel is its excellent location, the spectacular views from its front facing bar, poolside and coffee shop as well as its rooftop restaurant - all of which (except the pool) can be accessed without staying here.

Located on the promenade, the building has mid- century flair with subtle and classic architectural touches. The bedrooms are modern, spacious and integrally designed. The building is showing its age and that adds to the patina and genuine nature of the design. Food is well prepared and presented. The menu includes local and international dishes. Staff are friendly, professional and...
