This was the first Oberoi hotel which started the chain later after PRS Oberoi bought it on loan from a British couple.
This hotel is very old and most of the staff are old. The rooms are nice and big and comfortable and cosy. I have stayed here couple of times.
The staff are warm and friendly. Room service and food is great.
The location is good and is right on the mall road. Frequented by foreign tourists. The outer rooms facing the high court give a nice view of the valley.
Flip side: no car parking and you have to hire a porter to bring your stuff up to the hotel while you accompany him till the reception.
However, this place is highly recommendable though the rate is a little steep.
