I stayed in Lotus Comfort in SV Patel road, Pondy for 3 nights.I was amazed with the room and its furnishings.It was world class. The location of the hotel is wonderful.Casablanca, Titanic factory outlet is at a stones throw from the hotel.Nehru street is also not that far. I hired an auto to see the Auroville. However, due to an unfortunate incident that happened in the hotel , all the windows in all rooms are made unable to open.Hence, the room smells so bad once you enter. It takes you about 5-10 min to get sync with the atmosphere. I asked the room boy to bring a room spray to escape from that filthy smell.I even thought of cancelling the room .Since, no cancellation was available I had to live with it for 3 nights. The management has to do something to remove the smell and allow the windows to be opened.Since the rooms are air conditioned,the same air makes once's stay very uncomfortable. I reiterate, except for that smell, the rooms, service, ambience are wonderful. The complimentary break fast is completely western.Bread, jam , omlette, coffee and juice. If you dont have a sensitive nose, Lotus Comfort is a heaven.
