We reached from Chennai by 8 in the evening and were pretty apprehensive about staying in a new place ..unknown hotel... as we were 4 girls but Sri Sabthagiri was affordable, safe, clean and also very courteous staff. Anytime they had a smile and very ready to help us with anything. While checking in I by mistake left my phone on the counter and the housekeeping staff returned it. Very honest people. They even arranged the bikes for hire. and right next door was a restaurant for breakfast,lunch and dinner. The bus stand is just opposite the road and the promenade is 2km away. Good hotel overall. Do go for it.

I stayed in this hotel for two days (6-8.02). Room was clean and cozy, service very good. Location was also good, opposite the main bus stand, 30 min walk to White Town. Special thanks to young man who worked in reception - he was exceptionally kind and helpful, in certain unselfish way I haven't seen in India before.

Me and my wife visite Pondicherry on 20-Feb-2015. We stayed in Sri Sabthagiri Hotel which is just opposite to the Bus stand. It was a great stay there and we enjoyed a lot in Pondy. I got the reference of this hotel from one of my friend. I will revisit Puducherry and will once again stay in the same hotel.

Had no issues whatsoever with the service, spacious room and easily accessible. Would recommend it to anyone who are looking for a weekend stay over at Pondicherry. The staff are reasonably well mannered.

The best part of the hotel is location. Bang opposite to the Pondicherry Main Bus Stand. What else can you ask for. Road lined with food stalls, ATM, shops and
proximity to the Railway Station. Beach is 1.5-2 kms away but that is we can live with that. Bus service is regular, also you get shared auto's....and believe me they cost you only 5/- per head.Even if you want to have some privacy and dont want to share, they would hardly charge 30/-.
There is a restaurant just below the hotel and they provide room service and charge you just 10/- extra. But its Veg....had a dinner, very clean, hygienic and cooked in good oil. Really good mix of South and North food.
My room had a LG window A/C which did its job pretty well to keep me cool. The room and bathroom were big enough and there a few things like hair dryer, iron and board , etc can be requested to room service and they are provided free of cost.
Room service is a bit lethargic at times but we are Indians at the end of the day and is expected.
Overall a good experience and a pleasant stay I must say. Would return to this property for my next visit.

The hotel is situated right opposite the bus stand, about 50 mts from there. The hotel staff was quite helpful, though they have a strict check-in time for cleartrip bookings, they were ok with me keeping my luggage with them for extended time. My room was facing the main road where traffic used to start early in the morning, one thing you may want to avoid if you are planning to sleep for extended hours. My room was a deluxe AC room. I did find their service a little slow. One thing I want to especially mention is that due to heavy rains on the day of my departure my plan got a little messed up and I was about to miss my train, but one of the guards was very helpful and helped me in getting my luggage in place, although I hadnt given any tip, which was a very humane gesture. I just caught the train by 10 secs which wouldnt have been possible without his help.

I stayed here for 1 night, This hotel is very near to the Bus Stand and well maintained. Food is also good.. I was happy staying here, but the rooms for Non -Ac are not that big. only 2 persons can stay.

the hotel room was good , but the staff was not that good or helpful. We asked for a cup of tea and after half an hour they told that tea can not be served. No washroom for guests who have checked out.

We had made an advance booking for a double room but when I called the day before we reached Pondicherry to confirm, the person at the reception said no booking
was registered. They made a room available for us anyway.
The hotel is conveniently located close to the bus stand and is walking distance from the beach. The room was clean and spacious. However, the hotel insisted on having the housekeeping staff access our room for cleaning when we were not in, although we had clearly instructed not to do so. Our personal belongings were displaced. When we asked the manager on duty as to why our room continued to be accessed despite our standing instruction, his reply was a dismissive "i forgot to inform housekeeping."
On the second night of our stay there was an extremely noisy party going on in one of the adjoining rooms. Loud voices and clanking glasses were a nuisance for half the night.
The hotel has a 24-hour check in-check out facility so confirming exact timings for check out is useful when planning one's stay.

On my trip to Pondicherry, we had to book this hotel for our chauffeurs. As the last day of the trip being Sunday, we couldn't extent our stay at Hotel Jayaram due to unavailability. So my chauffeurs had to move to Hotel Sri Sabthagiri. The room was not well kept and had no ventilation and was seriously hot. Their check in time was 12pm, but since they had reservation at Jayaram till late night, they checked in at 10pm. One of my local friend reached the hotel by 2am in the morning to provide home food as the dinner wasn't good. He stayed there till 4am and then came back with breakfast at 6am. When about to checkout at 7am the manager demanded Rs.300/- as extra guest charges. They had to pay...Its located near the bus stand and is congested. This hotel follows 12pm checkout. No good car parking facility too. Next time even if they provide free accommodation my chauffeurs wouldn't stay there. They are better at the comfort of the cars.
