“Disgustingly dirty”
Reviewed 10 November 2011

The room was very poorly maintained with plug sockets hanging off exposing wires. The cleanliness was horrible. There was even urine on the toilet seat. The first thing that I did was clean the room and bathroom. Yes it is cheap but even the lowest cost places should be clean. The AC didn't work, which they informed us of AFTER we had unpacked and I had cleaned. They offered to move us to another room but when I went to view the alternative room, it was just as dirty, and I didn't want to clean 2 rooms during my stay. When I explained all of this to the unfriendly and unwelcoming Reception person he didn't even apologise. We checked out the following day and found somewhere else.

I was expecting good trip to Chennai but this was not. Actually my travel agent booked my hotel without proper things taken into account. Any ways i did my business at Pondycherry very well but accommodation experience wasn't so good as always. next time I'll take care for such.

Reviewed 8 March 2010

I stayed in this hotel since, as per my net search, it was the one in the closest proximity of a "Wedding hall" where I had to attend ceremonies on 2 consecutive days.

It is a budget hotel, so you can expect only budget standard.
As someone else wrote, the place is quite secure. The TV was not working, which they quickly carried away and replaced with another. Soap and other toiletries are NOT provided. Bath towel is provided.
The tiled floor could have been kept in a better condition. (Fortunately I was carrying by bathroom slipper)

A/C was working well - but not sure if the whole deal was worth @Rs 1000/- + tax.

  • Liked — proximity to my visit location
  • Disliked — cleanliness

Dolphin park is a budget hotel with a very good room rate. This hotel is inexpensive and has a very good security system. The food served is of decent quality and is worth the rate. A neat stopover.
