Very Good8.0
Good location and clean hotel.
Location is excellent. Staff was good, helpful in general to guide on nearby tourist places, restaurants etc. Rooms are spacious at the price offered. Breakfast was not that great and staff was not all courteous , attentive during the breakfast. Half of the things were over at 10 am during the breakfast. Wi-fi details should have been given at the time of chekin but had to ask couple of times for it to get it and speed was very OK.

Perfect hotel in a perfect location
Gorgeous hotel right in the centre of the French quarter and not far from the seafront. Lovely spacious room with nice furniture and decor and probably the best we have had in India for this price range. Fantastic bathroom and would like to copy this design and tiles for our home and loved the pebble effect floor tiles. Nice selection of toiletries too, much more than the usual offering of just a bar of soap. Staff were extremely kind and helpful too and good breakfast included in our room rate. Wifi worked really well in our room too which doesn't happen very often in India. Would have stayed here longer if it wasn't for our very difficult to get train reservation already being booked.
