“Dont even think about it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

When we started out for a temple tour from Trichy, it did start with a sour note when we are put up at this hotel. When I booked for 2 double A/C rooms through phone, I was told that they are available and i was asked to mail them for confirmation. Until the day we started out, there was not any confirmation and when I called again, the receptionists assured me that there are rooms and we can simply walk-in next day. Too bad I trusted! When we arrived early morning around 6.30 AM, 2 unprofessionalists greeted us in the reception. We were told that there is no sign of our booking and only triple A/C rooms are available. Meekly we agreed since it was too much to run around at that time as we were traveling with 2 elders.

After paying an atrocious 5k advance, we headed to the rooms and it is just so disappointing. There were 2 fans in one room but another had 1 with all the wires stripped out. The showers did not work so was TV. Toilets did not have latches working. Worse is in a triple AC room there is no AC effect at all. Wonder why do they even call it a triple AC.

Breakfast comes as part of the package but it is yet another nightmare. I would not even want to start my day with such breakfast. Idlies were so hard and semiya dish should be renamed to garlic dish. Side dishes were bit stale and that was disappointing for a morning breakfast. Coffee is horrible again - all watery and bitter.

Especially when you travel with family, the location of the hotel is horrible. It is next to a open-air bar and after 6 PM dont even think of walking in that lane.

I would rather go to Grand Gardenia booking through expedia or so.

Hotel Annamalai is located at a stone throw away from the Railway station and the Central Bus stand, thus making it easy for travellers. The Hotel rooms are decently spacious and clean. The bathrooms are well kept are are equipped with geysers.

The Breakfast is complimentary and includes two or three south indian dishes (like idli, pongal, bonda etc). It is topped off with a aromatic south indian filter coffee.

For travellers who want to visit Pudukottai or some other places in the vicinity, this hotel is a good choice as it is located close to the Central Bus Stand. Taxis (typically a Tata Indica vehicle) are also available at the taxi stand close to the Hotel.

Thus for a short and affordable stay, Hotel Annamalai is your best bet.

HI I went on a weekend trip to trichy and choose this hotel since it was close to the central bus stand . First the a... h,,,, of the hotel have changed the prices w.e.f 1st March 2011 ...

I went for a deluxe single a/c wch costs u around 1300 +12.5 % Luxury tax
The room is clean and they have the A/C as showCase Piece ...
The Fan makes the room cool compared to the A/C

The Window A/c on the delux room is not good in this hotel for all the rooms ... Room Service is terribly Bad and they have a restaurant attached .. never share a deal there ...

Better go to Banana Leaf .(just opp to hotel annamalai for food )..

This hotel is located in the centre of town, close to the main bus terminal.

Our triple room was very clean. The air-conditioning was good and not too noisy and the hot water supply was reliable. For a budget hotel in India this is about all you can hope for.

The staff are friendly, although not the most competant: check-in and check-out took quite some time.

The hotel restaurant is very basic, there are better places to eat around the hotel.
