Rooms are clean, not spacious though, hotel staff is helpful, parking is in basement, if it exceeds it's... More

Handed over the confirmation voucher from makemytrip to the guy at the reception who frowned at it and straightaway told me on face that there are no... More

I have booked the rooms through cleartrip. Just showed the reception guys the SMS received from cleartrip with voucher number and we were let in within 5 mins. Rooms were very clean and the ambience is very also good. As we ate in other restaurants, we didnt get a chance to taste their food. Parking at the basement can accomodate... More

Hotel was good, rooms were neat, efficient housekeeping and friendly staff. Enjoyed the breakfast as it was like a home cooked food and was in plenty. Even the restaurant at the ground floor offered nice vegetarian food. Our main criteria to book this hotel was the car parking they were providing, but after staying there we felt it was an... More

The 1st room they gave is was dark like a cave with hardly any light and crawling with cockroaches. The 2nd room... More

Even though its little far from pondy bus stand , you can stay comfortably with this hotel. Prices are ranging from Rs 700 to 1100/. If you have a car then its no problem otherwise you have to travel each and every time with auto to bus stand.

We spent 4 nights with our children in Annai Residence and enjoyed the central location in Pondicherry. Room (executive) was nice, clean and AC and water heater worked well. But it seems the hotel lacks somebody with basic skills for fixing / repair items in the bathroom. Bath tub tap, toilet seat, shower tap, toilet paper holder where broken or... More
