“One of the best hotels for their price”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I've stayed here on multiple visits to Hyderabad. This is the best hotel I could find in Banjara Hills. It's perfectly located, has friendly welcoming staff, and three restaurants to choose from. Their complimentary breakfast buffet is pretty good too with something for everyone.

The hotel interiors are done very nicely, mostly wooden - in a classy British style. The rooms are comfortable and the large wall mirrors create an illusion of space. Additional furniture in the room includes a study table and a chair, a cushioned bench that can seat 2-3 people, and a large comfortable arm chair. The room entrance also has a small wardrobe, a locker for valuables, and a mini fridge. The bathrooms are extremely clean and the glass wall separating the shower from the rest of the bathroom helps keep the floor dry.

There are a couple of things the management could look at.
1. The AC control panel/board should be easily reachable. It is currently at a height of more than 7ft.
2. I like the classic interiors, but the TVs should be upgraded to LCD or LED screens.
3. Electricity backup needs to be more reliable. I found it to be erratic at times.
4, My room (405) smelt of cigarette smoke everytime we entered the room. It would go away in a few minutes after the AC was switched on, but it's a bad first impression. I was told that it's probably because of the proximity to the smoking section in the restaurant on the upper floor.

In spite of the minor issues, Ohris Banjara is a lovely hotel to stay at. I will definitely return here on my next visit to Hyderabad.

My family of 3 stayed in Ohri's from 28th to 1st June 2013. Since me and my family are finicky about the quality and cleanliness of rooms, we saw multiple places before finalizing Ohri's Banjara. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Clean bathrooms. Nice location.
A nice surprise was excellent buffet dinner at their ground floor restaurant. I can't forget the home like roti's and expansive array of vegetarian dishes.
Something that stood out was the fact that on one of the evenings, the senior most manager of the hotel was going from table to table soliciting feedback.
We also tried their Chinese fine dining restaurant and were not disappointed!!
Only bad taste left was from poor customer service of their breakfast manager called Sudhanshu.
Leaving that aside, everything else was great.

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay while in Hyderabad. We had a ten-night stay, and most of the time, a stay that long in a hotel is tedious, but not here! The staff make it feel like home through their warm and friendly service, and the accommodations make the experience feel authentic without compromising on comfort. The hotel room I stayed in was spacious, well-appointed, and clean. You can stay at fancier places, but then you can stay in those anywhere. Ohri's Banjara is the best of the Indian experience, and I felt that privacy was respected while at the same time friendly conversation made the stay more personal. The Serengeti restaurant on the the top floor is a fun experience with its jungle decor, and the food is once again authentic and delicious. The more casual Eatmor on the ground floor also serves excellent meals. I did not try a third restaurant on the second floor, but it has a great reputation among Hyderabadis. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Hyderabad to lodge at Ohri's Banjara!

Room Tip: The rooms away from the street side are much quieter.
