Placed beautifully a few kms before the mall road, gives a feeling of peace and calm. the best part about the property is its staff. They make the stay extra comfortable with their pleasant and helpful nature. They pamper you to the core, making you feel like King. Right from check in to check out, everything is amazingly well planned.... More

This is the second Oberon hotel we stayed in during our tour of India. It was extremely comfortable with large, well appointed rooms and an excellent restaurant. As ever in India, nothing was too much trouble and the head waiter provided us with local curries, not on the menu and also provided soup requested by a member of our group,... More

Our car got stuck in the snowfall and the oberoi Cecil staff went out of their way from picking us up to upgrading our room. They fulfilled all our wishes with a smile on their face and made us feel special. The guest relations manager,Aleem, drove us personally to a spot so our 4yr old daughter could play with fresh...

The Oberoi Cecil is in a unique city and is a unique experience in itself. We found the room spacious, comfortable and with every accessory we could possibly need, the public spaces were amazingly stunning, the food was faultless but the icing on the cake was the fabulous service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who refused tips,... More

Opulent property with no excitement. Silken beds with no peaceful sleep. Luscious prices with no satiety. I didn't like the place. Paid a bomb but didn't feel happy at all. Food was sickkkkk! Crud buffet priced exhorbitantly. Even a drop off till mall road (1 km) they would charge Rs 500. Good for enjoying luxury for a day.

As the other reviews have said this is an excellent hotel. Good position, fantastic service, excellent room. One issue we had however (which is why only 4 stars) was noise. The atrium is stunning, but it is a bit of an echo chamber. We had a ground floor room near the bar and found it very noisy outside in the... More

We stayed at this property in April 2014. The hospitality is very good and even small need of yours is taken care. We travelled with our lil munchkin (1yr old) and staff really did their best to make our stay comfortable.
