Fabulous 8.8 From 17 reviews

Very good 8.0
Fantastic location
The location cannot be beat. The hotel has character. Perhaps too much character. The wifi is not very good. The attached restaurant is overpriced, but there are many nearby places that compensate for that. The room was in dire need of an update. The staff tried their best to overcome the limitations of a property that needs to be upgraded.

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent design and the friendliest staff.
I spent two nights at Le Dupleix and I would certainly go back. The hotel is in a quiet street closet to the beach and is a wonderful mixture of contemporary design and antiques. The staff went out of their way to make me feel at home and immediately took care of whatever little thing I asked for. Such a lovely bunch of beautiful young people. They serve continental and Indian breakfast .The only thing that surprised me, and that you should be aware of, is that the room is all glassed in and the windows cannot be opened. The AC worked well and there are bamboo shades and curtains all around for privacy and light control, but I was looking forward to sleeping under a fan in the balmy south Indian nights. One pleasant surprise was that the same company owns another Hotel a few blocks away on the waterfront with pool and spa, and the Le Dupleix guests are invited to use their facilities as well.
