The host, Donata, really knows how to treat her guests well. I arrived much earlier than expected; luckily, she wasn't too hung up on checkin times. She was also very helpful with regards to the how and where of things in Auroville and Pondy. The guesthouse itself is easy to miss as it's behind a row of slums. Don't let that deter you, as the property is beautiful and quite close to the sea. I stayed in one of the cottages, and the view was breathtaking! As for food, the guesthouse provides breakfast; at other times, you can order food from the couple of restaurants whose menus are provided. The breakfast, while simple, can feel repetitive if you stay for more than 2 days. The day I arrived, I placed my bag on the bed and decided to sit outside for a bit (it can get stuffy inside the room - I travelled in July) I came back inside and noticed a trail of ants climbing all over my bag (there were no eatables in my bag). I tried to get rid of as many as I could, but learnt that if I wanted to order food during my stay, leftovers would be a huge issue, and I could not store some for later (the portions in the restaurants are fairly large and I was travelling alone). There were several power cuts throughout the day and night, which added to the heat and humidity. I had a hard time falling asleep and when I finally did, I was woken up by a painful sting in my neck - at 2ish am, imagine waking up to find lines of red ants all over your pillow. It's as scary as it sounds! Like I mentioned, the property faces the sea; there seemed to be a lot of activity going on in the night, but there seemed to be almost no security around. The cottage itself had a frail looking door, which was mostly glass with a thin wooden frame covered by an almost transparent sheet. Gotta say, I was more than a little uncomfortable with that setup. To visit Auroville and other places around Pondy, the best option would be to rent a bike, as rickshaws almost rip you off - 250 to Auroville, 300 to Pondy, both at distances that do not justify these rates. All in all, this place has lots of scope for improvement and if the rooms are better maintained, this would be one of the best, most peaceful places for a holiday. PS: For pet lovers, there are many friendly cats and dogs on the property.
The variety in food was provided in the hotel. The location of the hotel was very good. The appearance of the hotel was very good. The destination of the hotel was good. There was no activity arranged by the hotel.
Dear HolidayIQ, Thanks for calling me time and again. My experience at Samarpan was very good. We had rented a 3 bedded room for 3 adults and 2 kids. The air-conditioned room cost us Rs 800 and it had all the facilities. With attached bath facility and room service, the staff made us feel at home. Still the areas like service at reception needs development. At the time of checking out, I found extra sum was added to the bill. It was corrected only after my complaint. Overall, it was a great experience. Regards Srikant Mohanty Bhubaneswar
IT IS AN GUEST HOUSE NOT HOTEL . I LIKE THIS GUEST HOUSE BECAUSE IT IS LOCATE NEAR SEA SHORE ,CHILDREN PARK, AROBINDO ASHAM AND MANY MORE. FIRST OF ALL THIS GUEST HOUSE IS VERY FAMILIER TO EVERY BODY. YOU CAN HAVE YOUR DAILY MEALS COUPON FROM HERE. AND CAN TAKE BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER FROM ASHRAM DINNING HALL , WHICH IS VERY NEAR TO THIS PLACE
If you are going with your family and looking for a guest some what near to beach & ashram it is an ideal place to stay. Well maintained rooms with cleanliness and you can take a good walk to beach, ashram, park etc (not very close but ok). The only worrying thing is the front office will be closed by night and if you are coming late night the premises will be locked.
It is not a hotel but a guest house which is in the french quarters of Pondicherry and is very close to the Aurobindo Ashram and the beach for which people come here. The front office people were good and there were no problem in check in and check out. It is a good place to stay for the budget travelers.
Excellent place to stay. It is associated with sri Aurobindo Ashram. All places very nearby.Sea beach is very near. Good food is being provided by a Gujarati Couple at a very moderate rate. Samarpan Yatri Bhavan has its own Meditation Room.
