While not as expensive as neighboring hotels, Annex is still at the upper end of the price range for this area. Don't bother getting the standard rooms as they are located on the bottom floor and have poorer views and are quite cold! Deluxe rooms however would be a good value for a couple willing to pay a bit more.... More

We stayed at Annex Hotel for 2 nights and we had booked a suite and a deluxe room. The Suite was on the 2nd floor and had a double balcony with amazing views of the valley. Truly breathtaking. The Deluxe room was on the lower floor (basement), but still with a balcony on a garden and partial views of the... More

The Hotel is okay, the staff good and the rooms are about average. You can get better rooms in the same price. The location is good and every room has a balcony facing the valley which is a plus point.

This hotel is somehow getting great reviews on Tripadvisor and I wanted to set the record straight. It is not a good hotel. It is musty, old and very dated. The location is a redeeming factor but value for money is not there. I would not recommend it to anyone in the future,

Very help friendly staff,great views from rooftop garden and watch eagels fly within feet,monkeys in the trees and sunset. Close to the temple and town centre but far enough not to be disturbed by noise apart from hearing Dali Lama's teachings. Rooms are clean with wifi,fast and efficient service. I would not stay anywhere else when i will come back,they... More

Dump of hotel, how this hotel got good reviews is a mystery. I would never recommend staying here musty and moldy. 2 star hotel that is overpriced. Only good point is it's close facility to Dalai Lama temple. Best to look elsewhere.

Was so good to arrive here. No problem to arriive here in the early morning hours and was made to feel totally welcome. No pressure, just really helpful and obliging. Great views and nice rooftop restaurant. Just far enough from the centre of town to be quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay here again.
