Hotel Annamalai International, Pondicherry
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.

Good family stay
Good stuff: 1. It is easy to get around from the hotel - everything is quite close 2. Very nice people - service oriented 3. Room was good Areas for improvement: 1. The AC was not working accurately all night. I observe that it works ok after 5 am... the timing makes me wonder if its intentional 2. Wifi would expire daily and we need to fetch new one everyday
