Anandha Hotel

Date : 25 June 2011

It was our first time to be in India and we came start straight from Mumbai, Chennai then travelled 3 hours to Pondicherry.

We booked in this hotel and stayed there for 2 amazing months. All the staff are so friendly, so helpful. From the security guards, to the waiters, up to the manager.They all speak good English, and French. You see, it was colonized by French before so you will see so many beautiful architectural buildings, temples and so many tourist...
We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in their restaurants.And what is so nice about them is that they cooked the specific food that we like.My husband is allergic to spicy food. And since South India is known for the too much spicy food, all the food are so spicy and delicious.But they're so nice to accommodate my husband's food preference.
The hotel is so clean, one of the oldest hotel in the area. Also it has all the amenities that you need and right in the center of the city.They will guide you to see the best places in Pondicherry, old churches, beautiful beaches,
Also so many things to buy for souveniers, antiques, clothes, everything...So many restaurants for foreigners...
It was indeed an unforgetable experience since we found a family in India...they treated us not as guest but as family.
Until now we communicate with them because it's just the beginning..meeting good people.
I am so happy to be in Pondicheery and in this hotel.
I recommend this hotel to everyone and please visit Pondicherry...one of the most amazing places in India.
I will never stop from talking about my experience in this place...if you want to go to India..please visit this place and stay in this hotel. They can also offer you good package if you stay much longer...A lovely hotel for a lovely place...

Visited during the new year. Was a busy place right at the middle of the market place. All the places are quite close to the hotel. The quality of the room was excellent and so was the staff. the room service was good. The mini bar was also decent. The buffet breakfast which was complimentary was also excellent.

The downside of the hotel was its lack of proper bar and nice food in its restaurant. The new year party was also nothing great.

In short what i would suggest is that if you are looking for a relaxed vacation, you can consider this option.

Hotel is good, neat and clean, well maintained.
Rooms are spacious but Air conditioning is sucking. it seems some one is cheating you with name of centrally air conditioner word. Not at all effective cooling.

Food service is good and fast. House keeping service is ok. Reception people not much attentive to your request.

Useless Free wifi... even hotel's login page take minutes to open, one can judge internet speed. Every hour internet password expires, so keep calling reception to take new password and user id.

Hotel Anandha Inn is one of the good hotels in Pondicherry, I have been seeing its development since its day one. Now that extension work is going to be finished and we can have even more facilities there. It has all the facility in itself at a affordable cost.

Place is well located and comprises of all possible facility you can expect and surely well maintained. Have global cuisine at offering and food surely is rated high. We had good time staying in Anandha Inn and thouroghly enjoyed our stay. Staff is very courteous and are willing to go that extra mile to help you. Could have been because we travelled with two young kids.

Clean spacious and comfortable rooms. Food in the restaurants available is average. Staff is not too overtly friendly, but will help when asked to. Had a good nights sleep. Will recommend it for a traveller on a lower budget.

We went for a family trip to Pondicherry with a plan for a weekend stay to this lovely place of historical & spiritual importance with lovely beaches spread around.
Hotel Anandha Inn was recommended by one of my colleague for comfortable & luxury stay without exorbitant tariff.
We had a nice experience beginning with the front office staff and the service boys.
Room was with all the necessary facilities that you would expect from a five star hotel.
Buffet break fast had a lavish spread and all foods were of high standard.
