It's a good cosy place to stay in the heart of Pondicherry. A comfortable bed with neatly maintained bathroom. It is surely recommended for the people stay on budget but definitely doesn't feel like budget hotel.

This was the worst hotel. The rooms were decent. However, the service was terrible. They tried to add a bunch of hidden fees at the end and claimed there was a "language barrier." We booked online, and it doesn't mention anything about the fees. Don't stay here. Especially if you're foreign. Suggestion: Pay upfront before you actually stay.

This was a last minute change from our original bookings and hence had to book an Oyo room. I have used Oyo rooms extensively in Bangalore and know what to expect from them. As per set expectations, we made prepaid bookings and arrived early at 0645 hours. The guy at reception called Piyush was approached and asked for one room...

It was an awful experience. I must say it will fit the budget but the accommodation is mediocre. It is very small. The in-house restaurant experience was the worst. We found cockroach in the sambar. The staff could not keep track of our orders. It is located close to a drain. It stinks and it is not a good sight,...

First thing this place has no parking. We went there during new year eve. Prize was too high for the small room. Stayed in room no 2202. No view at all from this room. Not worth the money paid. Breakfast was complimentary and it was ok. Not worth the money we paid. Hotel location is good.

Laila's County is located at the heart of white town, very near to Promenade. The rooms are nice and cozy, but little bit on the smaller side in size. Items in the mini bar are very expensive. Amenities within the room can be better.
