This is one of the worst ever hotel, i have ever stayed. People seem like dead and no responsible for anything that happening inside the hotel. I dont recommend any one to stay in this, actually i was little skeptical at first to write this review, since for me its utter waste of time and money. Pros> Location Cons> Poor... More

This hotel must have been the most modernised and cool during its haydays a couple of years back but now all that remains is a well constructed hotel with little upkeep and lack of interest from the management. The hotel has everything necessary for a good hotel from outside but as you get to know it better, you can find... More

Stayed here for a day in their superior category room. We were charged higher rates than what the rates mentioned which apparently were outdated. The rate for triple sharing was 3100 and complimentary breakfast was communicated to us during check in quite clearly. However in the morning the hotel people straight away denied us saying they would have by mistakenly... More

I have stayed in this hotel with my family on my Pondicherry trip last week. This hotel is very near to the beach though not on the beach itself. It is also at very walk-able distance for major attractions of the city. Rooms were clean and all the facilities required were available but bed was of small size. Hotel reception... More

The second floor does not have wi fi. They say you have to use either 1st or 3rd floor wi fi, but that is not usable. Their website promises wifi b ut they do not deliver that.  The toilet flush was leaking in spite of complaint for 2 days.  At Check out time they gave me an inflated bill amount.... More

The Pondy beach is about 5 minutes drive from here. We opted for the Executive rooms. The rooms were very small but clean. There were no windows in the room. The staff were unusually stern during check-in when it was totally not needed. There is no restaurant attached to the hotel and if you request for anything from the hotel... More

We were a group of 5 visiting Pondi on the Aug 15 weekend and the whole Pondy was quite booked - I initially had issues with booking online and had to talk to a rude person in the hotel over the phone - They were quite strict about the check in time, understandable - we were given rooms right at...

We were visiting pondy during April 2012. We were booked in to Lotus Comfort hotel. On arrival there was a big chaos in room allotments. We patiently waited and after around 45 mins it was getting too much. We spoke to the manager and he "convinced" us that we can shift to Lotus Bay View. He mentioned that it is... More
