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.
