The place is comfortable and ideal for a family as well on a visit to Pondicherry. There is a personal touch of Kalifa, the owner and his family who is always ready to extend his help on any matter. There is a small kitchen also where you can cook your own food and store your food items in the refrigerators placed. Please note, there is no arrangement for meals here but there are some good restaurants just nearby.

The hotel is well placed for exploring the town and a short walk from the white town, which has some fab restaurants and cafes. The hotel is the cleanest that we stayed in during our 4 week trip with comfortable, thick mattresses, clean bedlinen and a top sheet supplied without asking. The roof top chill out area makes all the difference as there is an alternative place to sit in the shade during hot afternoons. You can also bring food back to make your own lunch or dinner. However the main selling point of Villa Kalifie is the family that owns it - they are so welcoming and friendly and will help with anything. This is a real Homestay that the family takes great pride in and we changed our 5 day booking to 9 days as we loved it there so much.

We can only say that we enjoyed fully our stay at villa Kalifie. The owner is very friendly. You can rent bikes with him and the house is located in a quiet area not far away from white town and the promenade. Not to forget the cleanliness of the room we really appreciated.

Very good accommodation at a walkable distance less than half a kilometer from the railway station. Location was really good with some of the prime sight seeing spots being close by at a distance of less than 5 kilometers. A calm and relaxed place to stay with all necessary basic amenities available and well maintained room. The owner or host is also a nice guy willing to help with any information or details on how to go around and visit places. Two wheeler arrangement also done by the host at reasonable rates in case you want to go around and visit some of the other places which are a little far. Overall, A certainly recommendable place for a comfortable stay.

I am very happy about the two nights I spent at Villa Kalifie with a friend. The room was a bit small, but who cares: it was perfectly clean, which is the most important thing, and quiet. The bathroom looked newly renovated. The location is very convenient, just a few minutes walk from Pondicherry's centre and close to restaurants and shops. Additionally, the host is very nice and welcoming.
