Hi,
I've been to Pondicherry last weekend and stayed in this hotel. The hotel is very nice and value for money. The room was clean and the bathroom was also at par of our expectation. We opted for the balcony room. The inside rooms are pretty dark, so would suggest you to ask for balcony room. The room 407 was good. The hotel is also situated near to the Aurobindo Ashram and beach.
But the complementary breakfast was only having few items.Before we booked the hotel when we contacted the hotel, they said, we can check in and check out 24hrs and only the night stayed will be counted for the bill. We checked in at 7:15 am and we had a planned to check out around 11:30 am on the third day. So the day around 8:30am, I told we'll be checking out around 11:30am, please keep our bill ready. The receptionist suddenly said, you need to pay 3 nights charge as you're checking out after 7:15 am. I was shocked and how come suddenly your policy got changed. They were saying blah blah...but finally we came to term that if we check out that moment, they will only charge me for the 2 nights.

But overall, I would recommend this hotel but clarify all your queries beforehand and have all the conditioned written by them.

Please try the rooftop Italian restaurant of the hotel. The best Italian food I've ever tested.

Also don't confused with the swimming pool of the hotel. That is totally misguiding. That is more of a big bathtub than to qualify as swimming pool.

Room Tip: 407 or 401

Had stayed here for the weekend. I still remember the place to be clean and tidy. It was situated right in the market area of Pondi, lots of shops lined up to pick up knick-knacks. Oh yes, if you prefer beach stay, then this is not the place. We compromised on staying here within our budget and visit the beaches while we were not in the hotel. Services, don't expect too much. Mini-bar in the room was out of our expectation. :)

I stayed at the Corbelli last weekend.

Its neat, clean and quite efficient. Its certainly a very good budget hotel in Pondy and located at the right spot. About 2 kms walk from the Promenade, 1km from Aurobindo Ashram and right next to the French Quarter.

The staff at Corbelli are very helpful and always at hand. Attention to little details (a switch to put off the central AC if you don't want it and an option of a fan) have been given. We were always told that although the hotel does not have stocks of certain items, they would readily procure it from a shop outside to the room.

The breakfast spread was decent and tasty. Simplicity is the key here. There was no fancy stuff, but all of it tasted good and was brought fresh and hot.

The pool was a rooftop pool and although a little small (15 ft length and 4 ft depth), it was clean and didn't have a ton of chlorine.

We went as three friends and comfortably fitted into the room with the extra bed.

The minibar was stocked with two bottles of water. We used one bottle and had to pay Rs.25 for it which is about Rs.5 higher than outside, but still reasonable (I have seen hotels that charge Rs.50/75 for the same).

Overall, I can see why the Tripadvisor recommendations are good.

The only warning is to those who come in cars. They do have parking with a rolling shutter, however, it is limited (from what the security told me). They do take care of the car when parked in front of the hotel, although I got a scratch from some passing vehicle.

Next time I revisit Pondy, this would certainly be one of the places I'd opt for staying in.

Room Tip: Select a room on the 3rd/4th floor and away from the street. If you have the need, do take one of th...

Pleasant stay. The Reception was very helpful and pleasant. Rooms very large and spacious.
Cleanliness was good. Every morning they call you up and remind you of the complimentary breakfast so that you don't miss it. Location is excellent. Very near (walkable distance) to the beach/ Aurobindo Ashram/ Major restaurants and an excellent market nearby. Please don't undermine it because of the lower price ratings (i was making the mistake initially). The restaurant along with is also good and affordable. Only fault with the hotel is that the rooms does not have a calling bell.
