We are a family of 2 adults and a 4 yr old. Visited pondy last week - independence day weekend and spent 4 nights at hotel Atithi ..... chose the hotel primarily because nothing else was available and considering what we were expecting, the hotel was good .
Location - in the middle of all action, get a bike for easier mobility
Food - yummy food , we ate there pretty much everyday
Staff- smiling and welcoming
Hotel layout - open layout, glass exterior with a lot of sunlight
Rooms need significant refurbishment - they were generally worn out
Bathrooms - water leaking from the shower cubicle, slow flow in the sink and flush etc
Pool - the infinity pool is great but its open air, difficult to use in the scorching sun of pondy , I suggest they cover it up....
Very slow wifi
While the staff is warm - I felt they should be more flexibile to cater to the needs of the guests.
There isnt too much to see or do in pondy, I will recommend staying in the out of the city resorts for more fun.More
