“Perfect business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is an amazingly nice property right there on Banjara Hills. Easy connectivity with the rest of the city and situated right there among the hustle bustle of a rapidly progressing city. The rooms are clean and extremely well maintained. All rooms are no smoking rooms with smoke detectors installed. However, compulsive smokers could still use the bathroom. The food is awesome, I specially loved the fish in lemon butter sauce with chips. The breakfast and dinner buffet are lavish spreads - be sure to put on a few extra kilos if you're going to stay here for any period longer than a week. The hotel has free wifi for 2 (or 4) hours post which internet usage is chargeable. The hotel sports a small but well maintained gym and a club with a well stocked bar. The rooms are equipped with all necessities of a perfect bouquet hotel for the discerning business traveller. There is also a concierge desk and valet parking along with a travel desk. However, it is cheaper to rent a vehicle from elsewhere. The staff are polite and professional.

The only negative i thought existed with the hotel was that most of the rooms have no access to fresh air. You open the windows to your room to face the walls of another building! The meals are a little on the expensive side hence it is cheaper to go for the dinner buffet. I stayed here for almost a month during May 2011 and have come back with good memories of the place (had to choose December 2011 as there was no option o choose May 11)

Room Tip: Try looking for a room with an open view. I dont think they have such rooms but no harm asking!

I had a 4 night stay during a recent work trip. The hotel is beautiful, with fresh floral arrangements daily (patterns on the ground of fresh petals, gerber daisies floating in water, etc.) and very friendly staff. The hotel was awarded an award from Trip Advisor for having a high rating overall in 2011 - I saw the award on the front desk when I arrived.

The staff is very helpful and pleasant. My room was large, clean, modern, and air conditioned. There are a few things that led me to believe it is an older building, but it has been renovated to a lovely decor. The foyer is modern, there are small rock garden areas in the foyers on each level with chairs, and the room service is great. I was able to have my laundry done in the same day and the rooms are always cleaned meticulously.

My only complaint would be that the Internet is only available in 4 hour periods, for which I had to keep calling to request passwords. (I felt as though I was being a bother to continue to make the requests, however needed ongoing Internet for work.) The staff was always friendly with my request and assured me it was no bother, either delivering a new password to my room or giving me a new password over the phone. They were very friendly.

The stay included a complimentary breakfast that had a large spread of breakfast options including Indian cuisine and a few items that as a Canadian I was more familiar with (toast, scrambled eggs, croissants, omlettes, etc.) They always had two juice options - one fresh squeezes and one canned. It was a very popular place in the mornings and was always busy.

The restaurant on the other side was very good - I ate there for lunch and dinner. There was a wide variety of options, including some more Western options. They are happy to make any changes requested such as substitutions or making meals less spicy, if that be the preference. There is an extensive drink menu as well as some delicious dessert options.

I was very pleased with my stay - the accommodations, cleanliness, and service. I will definitely be staying here again on my next visit.

Me and my spouse stayed here for 3 nights in the last week of July. We got an excellent deal when booked through Make my trip. The front office staff and the room service staff were very helpful and efficient, and the service was top class. The room allotted to us was very spacious and neat, but kind of noisy (it was close to the kitchen, or the staff quarters, I think). We informed the reception about this, and they immediately shifted us to another room. This one was smaller, but convenient all the same. The complimentary wifi in the room was very useful. Breakfast included a pretty good spread, and the waiters were happy to oblige with freshly made omelettes and dosas, when requested. The hotel arranged a car and chauffer for our sight-seeing trips, and though the service was slightly over-priced, it was very convenient. The hotel is in a good location, and some good malls and other shopping places are at a walkable distance. Altogether a very comfortable stay at a very reasonable price.
