The hotel is very close to the US Embassy (less than 3 km) They even offer free drop services. The rooms are small but very clean. We ordered room service and it was delivered very quickly. The food was and service was quite good.I would definitely recommend staying here for Visa purposes.

Hotel offer free transportation to the Visa Application center and the consulate by Auto. Free Wifi is provided with decent speed. Breakfast was served in the room. Had limited options because of it. A tea/coffee maker was missing and could have been use full.

Booked for deluxe but provided standard room. On demanding no rooms. Paying before hand puts us to trouble. Vety poor as far as interiors are concerned. Most furnitures are broken. With such facilities we feel booking online is bad. S.IYER

Location for the hotel is very good. rooms are decent. Cleanliness is not as good, but passable. Little or no toiletries are provided. wifi is ok, but you will need to ask the reception 3 or 4 times to reset. Overall ok.

A/Cs work sporadically. Manager very ill-mannered. Despite a 3 month continuous stay, the manager had the audacity to misbehave. Towards the end, my room was not cleaned for 5 days despite repeated requests. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but have never been met with such uncouth behaviour. I have still half a mind to take this... More

Hi, Mr. Ashish sorry for the inconvenience which ended as a unpleasant stay for you. Although you stayed for 3 months and checked out @ 18th of august 2014 and writing a review about our hotel after 3 months from your departure shows little unfair from you. If the manager is not behaving well no one will stay @ the... More

We stayed in Hotel Oriental Inn as it is very nearer to the US Consulate. We had booked the Deluxe room. The persons at the reception reminded me that I can get a 15 % Corporate discount (they are having almost 100 companies tie-ups) if I showed my ID Card which is really nice. If you need to go to...

Since this hotel is located in the heart of the city, the rates are extremly high. The pics shown in the website are for a deluxe room and not for a standard room. The standard rooms are too small for 2 ppl and its very dirty. The deluxe room stinks and costs approx 3700 / per night which is not... More
