The overall experience was very good and enjoyed it. Initially there was a problem with check-in time but later I had a good stay there. The staff and service were good there. The location was very good for people to explore the city. The hotel was not good for a family stay as it was ideally located. The stay was value for the money. The hotel was in the heart of the city and well connected. The appearance was good and the interior was well maintained. The room was well maintained with all amenities functioning. Hot and cold water was provided. There was a multi cuisine restaurant with varieties in food. There was a swimming pool. I did not ask for sightseeing as we knew the city. The food was reasonable in price. I had good time there and a good relaxation trip with friends. I would request them to be bit flexible with check in time. It was a recommendable hotel.
I'd like to start off by saying how convenient the booking was. A simple conversation with the lady at the front desk, and no down payment required. This, after days of trying to talk to other hotels with no reliable response; Corbelli's location was what made our decision to stay there so easy. We'd walk for ten minutes through the French colony to the coast everyday when were there. On the morning when we checked into the Hotel, after being shown to our rooms almost immediately, we were looking for some decent South Indian breakfast which was surprisingly not available at Corbelli. However, a small restaurant and sweet shop right across the street served as the perfect economic breakfast place when we'd had enough of the Bread and Egg served at Corbelli. The roof-top Italian restaurant at Corbelli was quite expensive and, as students, we just could not afford to eat there. We'd just get some pizza from the Domino's Pizza two buildings away using our discount coupons and we were happy. When you're at Corbelli, you HAVE TO try out Cafe Xtasy down the road for some classic wood burned pizza. It's like any other city around Corbelli; an ATM, a chai shop, Nilgiris, a bar. You name it. The rooms at Corbelli were decent. I wouldn't expect any more when we were weren't really paying that much for them. There is a serious lack of natural ventilation in the rooms but it isn't uncomfortable. The rooms are fully equipped with an air conditioning system, a mini-refrigerator, a water heater and a TV. (However, we just weren't able to adjust the temperature on the AC. Guess the knob in this particular room was broken). Like I said, they give you what you pay for. I'm not complaining. The staff were absolutely warm and courteous, slightly confused at times, but sweet nonetheless. The swimming pool, Oh! The pools, if you can even call it that. It's a large tub of water on the Terrace. It's fine if you want to just splash around in some water, but we'd have liked to do a few laps; it's alright though, since there really is no other way of accommodating a swimming pool in such a commercial zone. At the end of the day, it was a wonderful trip and Corbelli was the right choice for us when we wanted to holiday on a budget. Will definitely go back there.
Hotel Corbelli is located at a walking distance from the beach road and most of the attractions including Aurbindo Ashram. The rooms are clean, and have all the amenities which one would like to have including a small refrigerator. Bathrooms are clean, and the staff is very nice Though the hotel has two restaurants, but the Indian one is not very good, but this is well compensated by a number of good restaurants close by. Satguru is at a walking distance, one of the good veg restaurants which are relatively inexpensive
The Decision: Me & My wife, being tired of our busy scheduled in our work & life, we planned for taking a short vacation. So, after doing some research (from friends, FB groups, Google Search) we finalized to visit Pondicherry district in the Indian union of Puducherry About Pondicherry & Sight Seeing: We think, This place is ideal for anyone who willing to take a break for 3-5 days even for 2days too !! This is also might be a popular weekend destination. It is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in South India. The city has so many beautiful colonial buildings, churches, temples, and statues. It is a blend of spiritual aura, French colonial heritage, Tamil culture, virgin beaches and the cosmopolitan flair of many nationalities in a small but varied city About Our Hotel Stay: We both planned to stay a Guest House which is one of the Ashram Property !! But, again and again we are so much disappointed with the rude behaviour of the Ashram. Staff over the phone & by visiting that place. Before our trip to Pondicherry we have also contacted with Corbelli, after that harassment, we don't have any second thought of about any other hotel except Corbelli [As we have talked earlier with the front office person]. Hotel is nearest to the main Beach, City Market & all other places too are very closed to this hotel About Amenities, Services & Advice: Everything was their which we needed for our relaxed moment in that hotel. We would like to add with this A/C, TV, Bathtub, Chairs-Tables, Hotel's Restaurant, Another restaurant in the top floor, & also pool in the top floor. Staff are also well behaved, courteous and helpful. We stayed there for 4Night-5days. Enjoyed our every moments there. Want to add one tips to the future traveller: Choose the room from Front side of this hotel. If we are visiting this same place again later some years after we will not forgot you "Corbelli", definitely we will again visit you too Only one suggestion we would like to give, please arrange some D2H facility with TV to replace Local Cable Service Provider. By this every customer can enjoy more !!.
Well I was planning to go to Pondicherry with my parents, when I heard about this hotel from my close friend. She highly recommended this hotel as she was really satisfied with the service here. I am very thankful to her to guide me to hotel corbelli. First of all I was coming from Cochin after a rigorous 10 hours bus journey and landed up in Pondicherry at 4 AM in the morning which was way before the actual check in time. To my surprise they got us a room without any hustle and even gave me a rough idea about the favorable timings and tips of the sight seeings so that we can plan everything accordingly. They booked the cab and the driver was also remarkably very helpful guiding us through the whole tour. Although after asking for an extra pillow, it never came though, which was adjustable, but I informed them that day to get a vehicle for us to the railway station at 4 AM in the morning the following day. The dinner in the rooftop hotel, temperature controlled room after full day hot climate Pondicherry sight seeing, the refreshments from the mini fridge with cold water and some fruit juices(bought by us, of course) and the cozy bed made us all sleep until and unless the front desk guy called us up at 4 AM. Being late would have got us miss the train which was not at all acceptable. Not only he negotiated with the driver and convinced him for our late arrival but helped us in a smooth check out, which shows their sincerity and care about the priorities of their guests which is very appreciable. Overall the whole trip been so enjoyable and hotel corbelli played the main reason for a carefree holiday in a real sense. Truly it is the affordable luxury hotel where you can just enjoy leaving the rest of tensions on the staff as they are quiet aware and cautious of how to make their guests feel at home.
