Ambience is good, Prompt room service

Posted 4 Apr, 2014

I have traveled pondicherry along with my family and stayed at Hotel annamalai. It is the very good hotel in Pondicherry for the family stay. Ambience is good inside the hotel. This hotel has spacious car parking facility and located in heart of the city. Stay with family at this hotel is very good. Prompt room service and good complementary breakfast. On roof swimming pool is available for adult and children. 24Hr wifi unlimited facility available for the guest. In over all experience it is very good hotel with reasonable price.

Posted 4 Aug, 2010

I was looking for a hotel which was not very expensive, in the middle of town, and most importantly has clean bathrooms. Annamalai fit my bill to the \'T\'. They are very close to the sea-side, museum, botanical garden, and the frech part of town. We ate only at the \'Haveli\' and the food was pretty good. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who\'s visiting Pondy on a decent budget and plans to do a lot of sight-seeing.

Posted 30 Jan, 2008

It was a long drive to Nagapattinam District, a good 450 km from Bangalore and travelling with kids meant we need to take a break in between. The usual stop is Tiruchirapalli, but reports of terrible road conditions forced us to look for another road. And the route via Pondicherry was the best option. It was a sudden decision and I was reassured when I had no difficulty in getting my booking in place. Like all good hotels should do, they called 12 hours ahead of scheduled arrival to check if all was well. And when we did arrive, the check in process was done in a jiffy. Our family\'s take - if you are not particular about a beach resort (and our experiences of beaches in this region are not too great - please see my review of another resort in this town) this is a great place to go to. One reason to visit to Pondy surely is to visit the French Quarter and for this your a strategically located.
