Be warned, there are TWO lotus hotels, a Lotus Bay-view and a Lotus Comfort. I had booked two twin-sharing rooms at the latter for 14-16th march 2015 on my visit to Pondicherry with my family. The website claimed a 3-star hotel with restaurant in the heart of Pondicherry, at a stone's throw from the Ashram. At a slashed rate. We... More

The Lotus Comfort Hotel was clean and comfortable. Security was slightly over zealous without too much effect as there was no room safe, nor facility at reception to store precious items. The room we had on the top floor was small but clean. wifi only worked downstairs in reception which was a bit awkward. Nonetheless the staff were pleasant and... More

Very good budget hotel in Pondicherry. The property is new. I got a very good discount from cleartrip. I was charged only 900Rs/month. Hotel is close to all important places. It is half km far from beach and takes 5 minutes to reach there by walking.

This hotel is a nice hotel for stay in Pondy. It's not give the sea view like the beach ones but the location is near to city. It is near to a good number of restaurants and Ashram. Although you can roam around in Pondy with vehicles which is better, but if you are planning to roam by foot, this... More

Pathetic response from the Lotus faculty, we made a booking around 2 months back and despite of following up with them some 4-5 times, we did not receive a confirmation on our booking, though the amount was deducted, I have never seen such irresponsible staff in my life. This was Lotus Comfort Hotel in Pondicherry. God knows if they are... More

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
