“Pleasant experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

The food was delicious. Staff was courteous. Ambience is good and the hotel is easy to find. The room was for ₹4500 per night, little steep compared to other places around but facilities were also 4star. Buffet dinner was for ₹650 and breakfast was complimentary. Won't mind staying here again.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

We stayed at Hotel Atithi for 2 nights as part of our Travel Indochina Secrets of the South Tour.
As the titles says we were a bit disappointed with this hotel as really had no character, it was just a slab of white concrete and the rooms were standard, large, clean hotel rooms but nothing special. They served a purpose to sleep in.

The rooftop pool area was nice and had great views out to the ocean. The terrace bar was also nice but on the first day they were not really open as they were still cleaning up from the cyclone the previous day. However on the last night we had post dinner drinks on the terrace bar and they very good and it had a nice vibe happening.

We only ate here for breakfast and that was average as was the service which wasn’t very helpful or pleasant. We ended up serving ourselves both days as they only seemed to serve the Indian Guests or large tour groups.

The location also means you either take long walk and we like to walk or need to take a Tuk Tuk to get to the promenade and restaurants around that area.

Overall Ok but if we stayed there again we would select somewhere smaller and closer to the ocean.

May2014-We took the ‘Summer Bliss’ package(3N 4D) @ Hotel Atithi, Pondicherry with complimentary morning Coffee, Breakfast, Lunch/Dinner with No additional bed for Child under age 10.
Stayed with my family in Superior room with smart card access, which was pretty neat and comfortable with LCD, Minibar etc. Food was tasty and good with nice menu items in Breakfast, Lunch as well as Dinner.
Kids enjoyed the ‘Rooftop swimming pool’ with excellent view of the blue ocean. DVD player is provided on request, if you need some entertainment.

Conveniently located on the main road which connects ECR (East Coast Road) in 5 mins. Easy to reach the hotel while coming from Chennai on ECR, as you don’t need to enter into city traffic to reach the hotel. Beach is just close by.

Inside the rooms, Small posters display water saving & conservation messages, which is a welcoming thing to note. It requests the guests to ask for change of bed linens, towels only if they really require to do so, thus saving huge amount of water in Laundry. Since mostly during the day we went out for sightseeing, the bed linens were less used and we preferred them not to be changed, thus contributing our bit to the Hotel’s water saving initiative.

All staff from security, front office, restaurant, room service were very polite. They served us well without any expectations in return.
Would like to thank Mr.Ranjith and Mr.KrishnaPrasad for booking, accommodation etc. and for being very helpful to serve all queries and requests.

There must be a host of other facilities, activities, offers & more for the guests. pl visit their website or contact them to know more.

Overall, we really enjoyed the stay @ Hotel Atithi without any hassle and will definitely recommend Hotel Atithi for my friends and will visit again in future.

Room Tip: Can choose Rooms with Sea view, if you like.

We recently stayed here with our 2 year old Toddler. The service was top notch and exemplary.
Our our requests were met with a smile. If you are travelling with kids this is the place to be in Pondicherry. Also very close to the White Town and the Tamil town

A couple of summers back, i along with my family had a chance to stay at this beautiful place for 3 nights. We had a great experience in general. Very spacious decor and highly boutique type interiors. The glass paneled stair case was a definite eye catcher just as the terrace swimming pool was. Even though the pool was small, it was enjoyable particularly for the kids. The family suite was decently spacious. it is centrally located with the promenade, beach and the temples less than a km. The only draw back I found was the inhouse restaurant and the quality of food. Particularly the breakfast buffet was not upto mark. Also periodic external functions conducted herein disturbs the hotel guests in a big way.
