We read the promising reviews on TripAdvisor and booked Ananda. Despite re-confirming the airport pickup 3 days prior to our trip, nobody showed up at the airport. Multiple phone calls to the hotel and 45 minutes of waiting around later - a driver shows up in the most beat up, dirty car ever - to take us to Ananda.
The location of Ananda is pretty uninspiring to begin with. The room was AWFUL. No natural light or ventilation - quite dingy. The bathroom was NASTY - there were hundreds of ants crawling around the floor and the bath tub hadn't been cleaned in ages. There was no hot water (only available in the mornings) so if you were considering having a hot shower after a long international flight - forget about it. The staff although friendly, says yes to everything, without doing anything that you request (unless you ask 3 times).
We cancelled our stay there for our return in Delhi. Don't stay here!
PS: the management has recently changed, which may explain how recent experiences are so different from those of earlier visitors.
