Value for money hotel, but lacking in Pondicherry flavour.”
Hotel Sri Sabthagiri is definitely a 'value for money' hotel. The rooms and attached bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The common spaces in the hotel are also clean. The 'complimentary' breakfast, though unlike in most hotels that I have stayed in, is substantial and tasty. You will get only vegetarian food, though. I wasn't too happy with the staff at the Reception Desk. They tried to mislead me by saying that Ola cab services were not available in Pondy, and quoted Rs.800/- for a drop to Pondicherry University, a distance of just 15 kms. ! Clearly, they were trying to rip me off ! I extended my stay by one day, and when I settled the bill I was not given a receipt. So be careful when dealing with staff at Reception. Having said all that, Hotel Sabthagiri lacks the French flavour which one expects when visiting an erstwhile French enclave. For that you will have to look elsewhere. There are two reasonably priced hotels on the seaside, run by the Aurobindo Ashram.

Foul smelling room!”
Location, price, attached restaurant
My wife and I booked a room here for a day. As soon as we entered the room and until the moment we left it - there was a very very bad strong stench. It smelt like a mixture of musty sheets and insect repellent. We spent most of our time in the corridor! Thank God we didn't have to stay the night - or we would have checked into another hotel.

Good except irrational behaviour from management”
Cleanliness, Well maintained, Location
The stay was comfortable since the hotel room was very similar to the pictures displayed. I was happy with the stay except for a last moment hiccup. According to the hotel policy, a House rules document available in every room the check-out time is 24 hours from check-in time. I had checked in at 3 PM. So my check-out time was 3 PM next day. However, the manager called me at 12 noon and told me to check-out. He started saying that for booking over internet check-out time is 12 noon. I told him that what he was telling was against hotel policy and explained that nowhere it was mentioned that there are different rules for booking directly on arrival at the hotel or through internet. He was speaking in adamant tone. I called Agoda customer care (UK helpline number starting with +44) and explained the situation. Agoda called the hotel, discussed with them and then called me back. Agoda confirmed that check-out time would be 24 hours. When I was checking out then again another person from management started the same argument and wanted to charge me for two days even after Agoda had spoken to them and the issue was resolved. This is completely disgusting, irrational and irresponsible attitude from the reception and management staff of the hotel. In conclusion the hotel policy for check-out time should be same and applied with uniformity. It should not vary from person to person.

Buena ubicacion”
Ubicacion, limpieza, staff
Se puede recomendar este hotel, sobre todo si se va o viene en autobus. Solo hay que cruzar una calle por un puente para llegar al hotel. Para ir al centro los autobuses salen de la misma estacion.
