My wife and I had a room cancellation at the hotel we had booked 1 day before we were to travel to Pondicherry. This forced us to look at alternatives and we finalised upon Auro Inn, given the reasonable price and good location in White Town. We stayed there for 3 nights. In hindsight, I wouldn't regret it but the hotel was strictly OK in terms of cleanliness, service, quality of amenities, etc. The 2 people at the reception - Mr.UnniKrishnan and another night shift guy tried to be as helpful as possible. Some observations about the place: 1. The ground floor rooms are located along a long, narrow approach passage and have thin room doors, making it noisy. Rooms are extremely small. 2. The soaps provided were the Medimix ones of the cheapest quality and pretty useless. 3. We had to ask room service to replace the towels each day before it was done. Was done promptly though. 4. Room is not cleaned unless you ask them to do it. AC does not work sometimes as they switch off the central switch when you are out. You then have to request them to switch it on. 1 complimentary water bottle is provided for each night of stay. Anything more is chargeable. 5. The room phone didn't work throughout the 3 days we stayed, wasn't rectified even after we told them about it. 6. We tried the free breakfast on our first morning at the place. It was the last time we ate there and preferred to then do it elsewhere during the rest of the stay. The food and cafeteria space (on the top floor) were both poor. 7. The free parking mentioned is just public street parking. You have to find your own space outside. 8. WiFi network is open (not password protected) and was weak. We did not use it. To be fair, a few positives were: 1. The reception guys tried to help as much as possible. Though they didn't seem to know a lot about the place, options in terms of spas, eateries, etc. They gave us a few suggestions about places to see. 2. Once they realised we weren't eating the breakfast, they tried to understand from us about the problem. 3. AC is good and powerful. All in all, can be considered in case nothing else is working out for you in Pondy.

While working back and forth in a compressed atmosphere of chairs and tables and staring at laptop screen whole day, the mind suddenly asked for a change in mood. Then we started our planning to visit for a short trip to Puducherry to spend our long weekend of Christmas over there. We have started searching for many hotels and lodges but all were showing full because we took time for making our final decision. Fortunately we found Auro Inn where only 2 rooms were left and we were actually four people. Without thinking much we just booked the room and felt relaxed. I would say the staff when being called and asked for the details of their exact location, courteous enough to respond and inform appropriately about booking and sharing location details in the registered mobile number. We drove down from Chennai to Puducherry and reached as per the shared direction. In terms of location it is just in the heart of heritage town and city, everything is accessible within a span of 5-10 mins walking distance specially Rock beach, IIFC and Aurobindo Ashram. Rooms were not that much spacious but staffs are very good and room service was also at par. We had a complementary breakfast as well and tea whenever you will request. In terms of cleanliness it was good and maintained hygiene as well. Most importantly it is a complete budget place where you can go and spend your leisure time during any holiday.

Hotel is in the center of city which is a Plus but there are many cons which has to be considered. I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with family during August 2017. Pros: Wifi,TV, AC,Hot water,Linens,Clean rooms. Cons: NO private parking,No room service during day,Breakfast to be shared with other hotel people which makes you to wait for long. If you are planning your trip well advance then i would not recommend this hotel. If you are looking for budget hotel and ready to bare the cons then you can proceed.
