Check the pool is open before booking!!
Hotel better than I expected, especially the room, AC, bathroom and bed comfort. Also quiet though street outside very noisy. Sadly, the pool was closed for maintenance without advance notice. As I had booked this hotel mainly for the pool this was very disappointing. Staff made no effort to addreess this disappointment with a complimentary drink or meal or anything. They just shrugged and said the pool is closed. Quality of breakfast items just okay but, for the price, it was good value overall. Would stay again if they could guarantee pool availability

Good 6.0
Great sleep stay let down by swimming pool closed
Very comfortable room, very quiet, clean and super bed and bedding. Very good sleep in a noisy part of the city. Amazing for this price range. Great shower and hot water. However the experience was badly let down by the fact that the swimming pool was closed with no notice for maintenance and I had booked this hotel mainly for the roof top pool. This was a big disappointment. Also quality of some food items at breakfast was not up to standard. The neighbourhood has nothing of interest and is just traffic mostly but there is a nice rooftop bar and restaurant within a five minute walk. I woyld check if the pool is definitely open before I will book here again but if the pool is working I would highly recommend this hotel for this price range.

Fair 4.0
Terrible room service. Pleasant front office staff but not front office manager. Misrepresented as having 4 restaurants but in fact only 2 plus some food at bar. Poor choice of food.

Friendly hotel with a special lobby.
Hotel is OK, staff friendly. Decor on the kind of weird side, but it adds colour to the place. 15 min walk to White Town.

Stay experience with hotel Annamalai
Room cleanliness okay, there was a water leakage on restroom. Bath Area is small, Bathtup was mentioned while booking the room, but only bath area was there. Taps are very old model. Rs. 3200/per day is expense for this kind of rooms. Hotel environment is good. Food is okay.
