A family hotel; no food facility

Posted 17 Aug, 2015

The hotel is good, located opposite to sea shore. Only families are allowed to stay here so it is safe and comfortable for families. Moreover room rent is also very reasonable. The only disadvantage is no availability of food at hotel. We have to go in search for hotels near by.

Tranquil place and pleasant staff

Posted 22 Jul, 2015

Afsanah is the best in convenience that Auroville brings to the table to an explorer. Assembled around the Japanese living idea. The stones, water bodies, 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 atmosphere 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 pleasant! Mr. Baskar is exceptionally kind coordinator and greatly supportive. Furthermore, we adored Afsanah 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 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.

Easily located ; good & spacious rooms

Posted 12 Dec, 2014

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 staff. I didn't face any issue during check-in and check-out. 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 staff 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.

Good hotel but unsatisfactory services

Posted 26 May, 2013

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.
