Hotel Corbelli
Ranked #51 of 82 Hotels in Pondicherry
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Corbelli is a modest, neat and decent place. The staff is very cooperative, and the rooms are nice and clean. The best part is that its in the middle of the main market, and one can easily walk to the market or to the beach. It has a general store nearyby and accessibility to cabs and autos. The staff is quick to respond to requests for support on queries with respect to local areas, and support additional needs like arranging cabs etc. Downside, is the food. The restaurant at the ground floor is dark and without any ventilation. Personally, I don't like my food in the dark. It also does not have much variety. One can step across the road to reach a quick and awesome thali. The Italian restaurant on the top floor is a beauty. I met the owner and chef who turns up wonders on a plate in a snap of fingers.

Room Tip: The rooms are a little small, so if traveling with kids make sure you get to see and pick the right...

I had been here in September for three days along with my wife. I also stayed here before along with my friends. This is a good place to stay with in budget. During my last visit one of the room i got was not really nice but when i asked them to change, they gave me new room. Balcony rooms are really nice. You also have italian restaurant on rooftop.

I would say not bad at all.

Pros:
Hotel Corbelli is situated in a very good location in Pondicherry - on Mission Street, close to the Market area, the Aurobindo Ashram and the Promenade.
The rooms are spacious enough with Central AC
Toilets are clean and has 24 hours hot & cold water supply
Complementary Wi-Fi is available in the rooms
24 hours check-in / check-out (though their web site mentions it differently)

Cons:
Most of the rooms don't have any external light and opens into a shaft. Same applies to the toilets.
They have 2 restaurants - none of which is up to the mark. The ground floor one which is multi-cuisine was stinking and we had to dine in the Italian restaurant, Don Giovanni, at the roof top which is owned by an Italian chef. The food there was good but not anything more - though I liked the Sangria (a wine cocktail they prepare). Also they didn't have a lot of items in the menu like fish items or risotto . Found then place slightly amateurish and casual.
The hotel web site talks of a roof-top bar but it was non existent.

Room Tip: Choose rooms at the extreme end of the passage as they have some external lighting

when group of friends comprising both guys and girls enter a south india hotel, it raises lot of eyebrow, similar thing happens with couples, if they sense they are not married.But, nothing happens here. plus, it is good when it comes to service, food is good and so is the staff..An Italian restaurant at the roof top is equally good...It is best for the people who are visiting pondy for first time as it in middle of the city and everything is very close by..Drinking is allowed inside, you also get a mini refrigerator...All in All, a good, place to spend time in Pondy with friends and your partner....

Room Tip: Don't go for their balcony room, it is actually small...other room is good

Stayed in Feb 2013 for 3 days.. The hotel is right in the market area so easy to roam around... I would recommend to not eat at their restaurant as there are better options around and also cheap.. No breakfast is provided...We used to go to Ananda bhavan for our breakfasts and thoroughly enjoyed food there... Rooms are decent , no issues with the rooms...

It is a nice place to stay for quickie...If you are in Pondy for a 1-2 days trip..then it can be a good choice for budgeted traveller.

Well part of the hotel is under renovation. So facility they claim available in hotel are not so. Like they claim swimming pool facility but it is an attempt by hotel to make it...but it is not more than a big water tank on terrace...Well during my visit some renovation work was going on there, so can't say more about it...

The room provided to us was simple & normal but was neat & clean.

There is also small cafeteria like restaurant on top floor of the hotel, so for tea-coffee can be a good choice to see the nearby location from top while having a sip of tea/coffee but no idea about food....

Well best part of my small one day stay was that they provided Wi-fi facility & signal strength in room was excellent.... Infact single user id password was for all devices. So all my mobiles, laptop were working perfectly well during web browsing...

Another important factor to consider this small hotel property is that it is located in heart of main market area... So for any shopper it is the best choice to stay....Infact local bike rent shop is few meter away from this hotel. Further the Gandhi beach main place to roam around in Pondy is also 5-min drive away from this location....

So in nutshell it is a good choice for any mid budget traveller who seek all basic amenities in any hotel for planning their stay....

Room Tip: Good place to stay, it offer all basic facility require by any visitor in budgeted hotel.....

hello folks! I went on a quick weekend trip to pondicherry and stayed in this hotel. Its very good. Giovanna who own this hotel welcomed us with her beautiful smile. That itself was relaxing after 350KMS drive. This hotel is walkable to the beach, muséum, french colony, French chruch, Sunday market and for shopoholics, you find Hidesign showroom and factory outlet in the same lane ;) They have two restaurants in the same hotel. On the top floor they have an Italian restaurant and at the undergroung an Indian restaurant. Over all I had a great experience. Sure to visit you again Corbelli :)
