Stayed as part of a group tour in Feb 2024. Lovely hotel with spacious rooms, a rooftop pool and nice view, and a very decent breakfast. Staff are nice and helpful. Excellent showers with good water pressure. Location is good, walkable to the Promenade, the Heritage Quarter, and the French Quarter.

We were deeply disappointed with our stay at Hotel Shenbaga in Pondicherry. We had booked a triple room for two nights, our experience was far from satisfactory. Upon checking in late afternoon on the 6th of December, we were initially pleased with the cleanliness and arrangement of the room. However, our excitement quickly turned into dismay when we discovered tiny insects in the bed later that night. Despite notifying the front desk immediately, their initial denial and subsequent attempts to relocate us to other rooms with the same issue left us with no choice but to seek alternative accommodation at 11 pm. Despite our request for a full refund due to the unacceptable conditions, the hotel has only offered a refund for one night, citing our brief use of the facilities. This response is entirely unsatisfactory, given the magnitude of the inconvenience and discomfort we experienced. Overall, our experience with Hotel Shenbaga fell far short of expectations for a hotel of its supposed caliber, and their customer service left much to be desired.

I generally do not write bad reviews about hotels, I usually give them praise for their efforts. However, Shenbaga hotel was very disappointing. First, the checkin experience was awful. The front desk staff Anbarasu was not even looking at us when doing the checkin, as if we were disturbing him. He was rude and unfriendly towards me. In fact, most of the hotel staff were the same, with the exception of the cleaning staff. Secondly, the amenities in the bathroom is very cheap, soap doesn’t even foam (it’s like rubber), 2 drops of shampoo, and now shower gel (so bring your amenities). The beds were not comfortable. Thirdly, the swimming pool was dirty, gym is tiny and the machines not working. Fourthly, food is not great, too spicy (even if we ask for mild or non spicy). The breakfast is very disappointing. This hotel doesn’t desserve a 4 star rating. If you want to spend a good time in Pondicherry, pay a bit more and stay elsewhere by the sea like the Promenade Hotel.

Standard hotel. Staff is courteous and prompt. Restaurant is good. Parking is plenty. Breakfast spread was okay. Overall good experience. Location is little away from Beachfront and Good restaurants. There is an auto stand just outside the hotel, so its not a big issue.
