A great lace to stay in, very close to the Puducherry Beach. Rooms are well maintained, Wash Rooms were excellent, service was excellent. Breakfast and Dinner carries a variety of choice. Kal Dosas were excellent - they have an excellent Chef - who was very receptive to our queries on how the name of chicken 65 originated. He told us that it originated in India, and this was the 65th dish which was served to a nawab.
However only the bedroom linen could have been more new - they were clean, but faded out.
Rooms could have been provided with wooden flooring which would bring the hotel into a greater delightful experience level

A modern, friendly 5 star hotel with an excellent breakfast. There was good Indian and Continental food, plenty of fruit, freshly made dosa and pastries. Our room was large and very plush. We paid 7000 Rupees for one night, arriving without a reservation. The service was good and we were allowed to check-in a few hours early without any charge.

This was the first hotel we stayed in in Pondicherry, couldn't fault it in the slightest. Rooms were beautiful and very spacious, and had a stunning rooftop pool where you could order drinks up to. The breakfast buffet was very plentiful, and there was an array of food to suit everyone's tastes. The lunch buffet was also very good, we had this a couple of times and it was a reasonable price and tasted really good! We stayed for New Years Eve, and the celebrations and the buffet that the hotel put on were brilliant, couldn't fault a thing. A great way and a great place to bring in the New Year. We left this hotel after 5 days to go to another hotel in Pondicherry, but we were soon back here after 1 day, as the other hotel wasn't what we were expecting! Luckily, the hotel had 3 rooms for 2 nights, and we were more than happy to be back at this hotel for a couple of days. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful and the staff in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner were very attentive and were there if you needed anything! Couldn't fault a single thing about this hotel, it was perfect and would definitely come back!

What can one say. Our stay at the Atithi Hotel was very good. The staff whether in the restaurant, front desk, roof top bar, room service, door staff were all very pleasant and friendly for the whole time we were there. The breakfast service was excellent and the buffet nice. Rose, front of house, was a gem helping us out with some tricky requests. Thanks to all for making our holiday so special.
