5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very good one They can fix the smell from the room

Stayed 2 nights in Jan 2020


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

The worst stay for the money I paid and expected.

Driver was not provided a common bath room for drivers. They were asked to use the security rest rooms. In the rooms there is a persisting stinking smell throughout. In spite of changing the rooms also the stink was everywhere. People planning to visit Auroville only come there and they do not want to raise a complaint about it. Please do not encourage booking in this Hotel to your guests. You will lose your reputation

Stayed 1 night in Mar 2018
