I could not be happier with this hotel! We highly recommend staying here! The staff was so kind and eager to help us with anything we needed! And the room was beautiful with a fabulous view! The beds were very comfortable! Staff kept the room and hotel clean. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!!! I hope we get the opportunity to go back! Thanks Simon and Staff!

The Lotus Hotel had a wonderful staff who truly became like family during my three week stay in India. The Hotel did everything they could to make my stay comfortable and successful! I would absolutely recommend the Lotus to anyone going to Pondicherry!

I want to spend a long weekend leave in Pondicherry. Stayed in LOTUS COMFORT HOTEL (located in S.V.Patel Raod). It was an unforgettable experience to be there in LOTUS.
Before going to Pondy, i've heard some news that we need to be careful in choosing our staying place in Pondicherry.

Once we reached the hotel and entered into room, I felt happy that, i've choosen one of the best hotels to stay in Pondy. Reception of hotel staff is very good. Service also good.
Maintenance of hotels rooms are too good.

Recommeded to stay with family and also best for couples.

Hotel is located very near to famous shopping streets, Aurobindo Ashram, White town beach, and Bharathi park.

Go for it..Stay there...and Enjoy..!!!!

on 19h July we 5 girls had a trip to Pondy. After searching for a good room for best price, we found Lotus Comfort Hotel the right choice.
The Hotel was very clean and safe for us to have a pleasant stay. It was very close and walkable to beach, shopping etc., The staffs were very helpful and we enjoyed the free WiFi access provided to us in the room.
We like to plan a trip in September again to Pondy and we like to stay in the same place.

Small hotel but very clean. Great rooms, I stayed here with my family members and had a very good stay. We all liked the hotel a lot. Food is one thing they can improve upon but otherwise everything else was great. They have rooms with one 2 beds and 3 beds as well so all of us (about 6 of us) had no problem at all staying in one room. Right next to the main beach of pondicherry.

This hotel was conveniently located. Not very far from the aurbindo Ashram. The hotel though small has well maintained rooms and nice ambiance. The people running the place need to be little more polished and communicative. The rates that we got for a family of three (3 roms was very good). The food wasnt very good here and service needs a majot boost.

The hotel is very close to the central area of Pondicherry...Its a walking distance from the Rocky Beach and close to all the other attractions like Aurobindo ashram,though Auroville is a little far.Rooms are clean and the staffs are helpful..

We stayed at The Confort Hotel and the stay was very pleasent. We were 3 families and booked 3 deluxe rooms @ 2250 per room. The Hotel is very nicely located and has a very good ambience. The service there was also good. The rooms were excellent. The food was a little where they could have done better. Their breakfast ran out on the first day and we had to do with what they could arrange later. The second day too the breakfast was not so good. We never had lunch or dinner and rather banked on the restaurants outside.
We did not book in advance rather negotiated with the people at the reception. they were accomodating and provided the rooms as reasonable rates.

After staying at fullmoon guesthouse which is very far away from pondicherry, my wife and me came to this hotel.
While arriving itself, we said to each other that : "this is what we need !!"
We were nicely receive by Mr. Shankar, the manager and were given the best services. He negociated for us the rickshaws cost everytime . And not only that, he took care of us like jewels.
The rooms are very clean and well-maintained and you have everything you want.
I recommand every one to come here if u come in Pondy because it has a beautiful terrace with swimming pool and view on the sea.

Hotel Lotus comfort seemed to be quite true to it's name - giving a decent comfort level to its guests!
Although we landed up in this hotel accidentally due to a travel plan mess up by a travel Portal (Y!@#$) we found this hotel to be a boon in disguise.
Situated not quite far from the pondicherry beach and right at the heart of the the market place, its a decent bet. Luxurious and well equipped rooms, well maintained, good and clean bathrooms, free internet - these are some of the things not found even in the pretty expensive hotel. But Hotel Lotus comfort seemed to be offer you every penny that you had paid for.

One negative - the restaurant is not well - however, the location itself gives one significant options to choose from.

The family trip that was saved from going bad all thanks to the hotel. I had initially booked a guest house for my family of four 3 days before to trip to Pondi as a family get away.

On arriving on the friday night we had a few mixed opinions about the guest house by mom and sis and by next day morning they were convinced that we need to move. I had a carried my laptop just in case and a internet connection from my phone, thank god I did.

With a little hope I googled for a hotel that might have an availability on a weekend. I landed on tripadvisor.comand located this hotel. For the first time I had to rely entirely on reviews posted and took a chance to book two rooms in the Lotus Comfort. They had the availability and we checked-in the next day by noon.

The stay was very comfortable for the entire family. The rooms are very well maintained. The Hotel Management is very professional, courteous and understanding. I would definitely recommend for a family stay. It is close to the ashram and Vinayaka temple.

The only Bad I noticed was there was prolonged wait for food to arrive to the room and there is very congested and uncomfortable parking accommodations but no fear of security of the car.

I owe this post for all others who are looking for a review and thanks to everyone above to be precise in your comments about the accomodation. Thank you once again.

Rooms are very clean and staff very friendly. It is centrally located . Places like beach and ashram are at walkable distance. Parking is a problem as they have a small parking lot.
Resturent in this hotel is not clean. They won't change table mats and they are soiled. Over all a good place to stay if you are taking food from outside

We were on a leisure trip to Pondicherry from Sat noon till Monday A/N. We searched several hotels on internet and came across this hotel - Lotus Comfort Hotel. After a few other hotels whom we contacted were sold out, we chose to book a room at Lotus.
It is a small hotel with @15 rooms on three floors; rooms and interiors are reasonably well maintained and clean.
Our requirement was to have a clean room, good staff and proximity to the main attractions. We hardly stayed inside the hotel and mostly roamed in and around the city. The reader is requested to read the review from this perspective.
Service - The service was good and the staff was very courteous. They helped us getting to know the area and also made good recommendations about 'what-to-do' in Pondicherry. Upon our request the staff arranged a two wheeler which proved to be a great travel companion.
Room - They have three categories based on the size of a room and we were offered a middle category room. The room was spacious with one small wardrobe, a round table and two chairs. The bathroom however was very small which proved to be disappointing factor about the room. The breakfast is included in the tariff however it was an average offering. We went out to nearby hotel (Surguru) to have a sumptuous south indian snacks.
Location - The hotel is located on a main street with proximity to the north end of the beach and french quarter -both @10 minutes by walk.
Overall we liked the cleanliness and helping nature of the staff. As mentioned earlier, the bathroom size and amenities inside were biggest let-down. We paid about Rs2600 per night; I felt it was slightly on a higher side but wont mind it so much. Ultimately it was the charming city of Pondicherry which made the trip very memorable.
Suggestions - It is a charming experience to stay in french quarter; those could be slightly expensive but the experience is worthy of the higher price. Secondly it is good to have your own mobility; having a rented two wheeler added to a lots of fun.

Firstly, I reached the hotel at 5 30 AM in the morning, the hotel was shut off...the staff didn’t treat us well on our approach. We were just allowed to leave our luggage and spend 6 hrs outside, having no idea on the place or where to go, ones we were back at the said check-in time we were kept waiting till 1.00 PM. The room condition was good, but too small nothing as shown in the website, which was quite disappointing. There is no retro for the Bay view hotel.
The hotel staff had no idea about the places of attractions, we were misguided twice. getting a two-wheeler was another major issue. I suggest you can spend a little more on your pockets and get a better hotel.
The only advantage of this hotel its located close to the promenade, and few pubs and neat restro’s. The offer they show about the breakfast is absolutely a big waste at the Bay View, the breakfast provided is from Ananda Bhavan, and the quantity is hardly anything, and the continental breakfast is entirely a goof up. I suggest you can consider this hotel as the last option.

We stayed in Lotus for 2 days. We would have chosen a different hotel all together but all the good ones in pondi were completley booked. So had to settle on this one. Room was good enough. Had a huge window with a far sea view. AC was not working and kept resetting back to 28 deg. We had to ask for a table fan and spent the night though we paid for AC suite!

Do not expect the hotel staff to be co-operative. They just said oh!sorry whilst we checked out. Never make the mistake of eating lunch or dinner in this hotel as they do not cook any food in the hotel and they get it from street vendors! Complimentary breakfast was just eggs, cereal and coffee!

Definately not the place worth for the money spent.

Hotel room is nice and well decorated. Breakfast facility is nice. Parking is big issue as they have less space to park. Location is perfect, very near to Aurobindo Ashram and beach. Liked it a lot.

L'HOTEL LOTUS sauve les apparences dès la réception. Certes, la chambre 101 est spacieuse et confortable mais les serviettes de bain ont déjà été utilisées, tapis des pieds sale, oreillers sales, ne parlons pas des draps (gris, bof ! en Inde ce n'est pas surprenant mais sales difficilement supportable. Nous avons dormi sur nos serviettes de toilette......
