Andaman Residency Port Blair Reviews
Typical Indian standard tourist class hotel with kind staff Jan 29, 2011
I booked this hotel through www.travelguru.com which is the Indian affiliate of www.travelocity.com for about USD20. It's one of a few places bookable online in Port Blair.
The hotel is a little out of the centre of Port Blair ... not that there's much to the centre of Port Blair.
The hotel has a good inhouse restaurant. It is handy to one convenience shack, roti shop, restaurant and internet cafe.
For a short stay, the location isn't a problem as you can get an auto-rickshaw to wherever you need to go ... just ask the hotel for the correct rickshaw price.
Rooms are air-conditioned and have hot water. They are a little worn but it isn't any worse than many in the same price range. You could probably get something at a similar standard for less but it's sometimes easier to have a booking so you don't have to look and keep looking with luggagge in tow.
The staff are nice. The usual check-out time is 8am because most flights are early, but they offered me a late check-out voluntarily. They also threw in a breakfast on my second (last) day.
When booking through Travelguru, it may say that transfers are complimentary. Whatever special request note you put into the booking doesn't get through to you. So they won't be there to pick you up. However, they reimbursed my incoming rickshaw voluntarily and organised my outgoing one ... all voluntarily.
