So I arrived tonight from Mahabalipuram by bus and decided to stay here following suggestion from lp. The rate is higher than what I would normally pay to stay for only one night in India (I prefer to stay in cheap dorm /hostels) but I figured cities after Chennai , south bound, have no dorm or backpackers hostels including Pondicherry...

I booked this hotel for Jan 23, 2015 weekend. And at the time of check in only I told them that I will check out on 24th at 7PM. The Staff, Managers told OK, just pay half day price (Since we booked at 1800 a room, 900 seemed to be OK, considering early check-in also). Later next day when we... More

This was great value for money. The beds were clean and comfortable. The room was well-maintained with good air-conditioning. The staff were also prompt in responding to our complaints when there was an issue with the bathroom. The hotel's location is quite convenient as it's within walking distance of the French quarter and several bakeries in the area. The only... More

Great value for money - comfy beds with proper pillows, air con, good shower & a little dressing area.  The hotel is in a great location with a supermarket & several bakeries just a couple of minutes walk away. Hardly any noise from the street which is always a bonus.  The staff are super friendly and Raj was really helpful.

On short notice, we weren't able to find room in any of the heritage inns in Pondicherry, so we chose Shathi, out of Lonely Planet, and we were happy with this budget (1500 ruppee) choice. It's in the Indian area of town, but just a block away from a croissant-and-cafe-au-lait spot. Marble floors, large clean room with nice light, room... More

This hotel is located in the Indian quarter of Pondy. Rooms and bathrooms very clean. The hot water was quite tricky to get working, so mostly cold water showers. Good laundry service. Would stay again.
