Stayed here for one night only, and it was off-season. We got the rooms on the cheap. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated. But then, again, in the tight spaces of Mcleodganj, there is very little space for new development and most hotels are dated anyway. The two Hakeem brothers are very friendly and always willing to provide pointers... More

Everything about my stay at the Annex Hotel was beyond my expectations. Located on a quiet road with amazing views, you may never want to leave your balcony. The rooftop cafe is a great spot for morning breakfast and the generosity of the staff takes the experience here to another level. I highly recommend a stay at The Annex Hotel... More

From the moment I checked in I felt very welcomed by the staff, who are very accommodating, friendly, and helpful in every way. The rooms here are reasonably priced for the location and are spacious and comfortable. This location is on a very quiet road, but just a few minutes' walk from the main roads for shopping and eating. This... More

We got to Dharamsala without pre-booking a hotel only to find that the Dalai Llama was giving a 3 day public address and nearly everywhere was full !!!!! Eventually we found the Annex Hotel which turned out just fine. It was priced OK after a little negotiation and the room was large and clean. Best thing was the fantastic view... More

We felt very welcome the first night we arrived and really felt at home ever since. They invited us for a lovely dinner and have treated us like family with whatever we have needed by day and night! PS: the view is truly amazing! and the rooms are spacious and clean.

This past summer I stayed again at the Annex Hotel in McLeodganj/Dharamsala. I spent three weeks in the town, on my own for a while, and then with my daughter and son, and also with friends. We all stayed at the Annex. I stayed in different rooms - in a small single on my own, and in a suite with... More

This is my 2nd time in Annex Hotel because of Dalailama teachings. Room was very clean with the view with wifi and the staff is very kind friendly, Very quiet location 5mins walk to main town and 10mins walk to the temple and hopefully will come back next year again.

I don't know how they get positive ratings. This hotel is filthy and overpriced. There is a reason why Lonely Planet excluded them. If you want to find out why, go there. I certainly will never go there again.

Definitely a hidden gem in McLeod Ganj. The staff couldn't do enough to help and were always on hand to make the stay as pleasant as possible. Got a perfect room (402) with a cracking view, spotlessly clean bed and bathroom and a balcony. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the Dalai Lama's residence in a peaceful... More

After realising what an ideal place Annex Hotel was to enjoy Mcleodganj my three-day plans turned into ten days of relaxation and enjoyment. The hotel is located within minutes of the quaint restaurants and market streets of McLeod and has views into the Kangra Valley that are absolutely stunning. Breakfast on the rooftop offers the ideal start to a day... More
