Afsanah is the best in convenience that auroville brings to the table to an explorer. Assembled around the Japanese living idea. The stones, waterbodies, plants and trees, wooden floors, screens, moderate yet tasteful. Tranquil, shading facilitated, quiet and unwinding. Nature in all structures encompasses you while you are there.Consider Afsanah, on the off chance that you are satisfied with making a trip to far away eateries for your suppers and adjacent bistros for tea/espresso. The bungalows and the rooms are unadulterated and very much sorted out. The nature around is astonishing and the athmosphere is exceptionally smooth and unwinding. You can appreciate this spot and experience the Beauty and unique Magic of Auroville. The nourishment at the primary house is basically heavenly ( so clean, delectable and solid!) and all the staff is exceptionally useful and pleasent! Mr. Baskar is exceptionally kind coordinator and greatly supportive. Furthermore, we adored Afsanah's friendliness: she had been an extraordinary host for us! The area is super helpful: near to the Matrimandir and the Visitor Center, ... We truly propose to consider this G. House in Auroville, in the event that you like high caliber Useful for scholars, essayists and those needing to detox and have quality time with themselves.

I stayed in this hotel for a sightseeing purpose with my friends. I booked this hotel by online. There was a delay while checking in but check out was done on time. It was convenient to locate the hotel. Surrounding of hotel was good. Appearance of the hotel was good. The room allotted to me was spacious. All required amenities were provided in good condition. Coffee maker was provided. Free Wi-Fi facility was available. Breakfast was provided, it was tasty.

The location of the hotel was convenient and I reached there very easily. It took around 2.5 kilometres from the bus stand and 1.5 kilometres from the railway station. The hotel was just opposite to the beach. Food facility was not there in the hotel. I liked the service provided by the staffs. I didn?t face any issue during check in and checkout. The interior as well exterior of the hotel was nice. The room was spacious, clean and very well maintained. All the basic amenities like TV, geyser, TV, etc. was provided in the room and all were working fine. I could see a nice beach view from the balcony. The housekeeping staffs were daily cleaning the room. Swimming pool and gym was not there in the hotel. Proper parking space was not there so I had to park on the road. It was an official trip. My suggestions are that they should provide food facility and parking facility. It was a good place for relaxation.

Hotel location was average. Sera facing room was missing from the room?s window. Staff was good in behavior and helpful. Outside look of the hotel was average it was not well maintained but interior look was very fine. Room was well furnished and spacious. All basic amenities were working properly. Check in and check out procedure was easy. They did not arrange any type activity. It was my religious holiday with my friends in September month.

over all experience........very good...the rooms(japanese cottage were beautiful...the bathrooms were spic and span.... the surrounding was apt for relaxation. The idea of leaving shoes outside the dinning room and personal rooms is really appreciated...However..Mr Bhaskar.....the Manager was very dissapointing...Mr Bhaskar.....(Manager).....not at all willing to help.....didnt bother to receive calls.... very rude......If the front desk is so poor, guests would nt really have a positive opinion about the the palce where they have come for a holiday....I think someone more effiicient, a plesaing personality and willing to work should be hired for the guests to reach out for any help. We were infact helped by the security guards...who initially were unwillining to help(I believe as per Mr Bhaskars instruction)..however whatever lilttle help we received we got it from them....
