“Sour Orange...”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Checked into Orange hotel only coz of the sincere GM Mrs. Kalyani. But theentire stay was a fiasco. Theybhave been trying to create competetion to TATA's Ginger group but have failed miserably. Housekeeping is poor. F & B is awful. Maintenance loiusy. Just two porters. Room service pathetic. Untrained staff. They have good infrastructure butvwith trained and more staff the hotel could do well. They can keep the same tariffs but improve all departments.

Room Tip: Avoid please

this hotel looks good and modern ! its very compact and cramped up for space ... the service is bad ...
the food is also not that good.. the location is in the market area as well !
the hotel is lacking a bit of maintenance with the ameneties ..... when the hotel was new ,it was a very good experience , but over the time due to poor maintenance.. its gone down !
but again... to stay for short trip on busines its ok

We stayed at Orange Hotel Vizag expecting a pleasant stay because it was a chain hotel. What we got was absolute disgust. When we pulled into the parking (yes, that's something the hotel DOES have), the security guard did not help at all, did not give us any eye contact, and instead he watched us struggle with our luggage, having to make 2 rounds to get it up. The receptionist too, was sitting at the desk chatting on her phone, completely oblivious to our presence. (Later we found out she was walking around barefoot). The night before, we had called to confirm our booking for a double occupancy+extra bed through another staff, but when we arrived we were asked to pay Rs 600 more! So if you are travelling with 2 children and you want to stay in the same room, BEWARE. Then came the next set of problems- knowing we were a family of 4, they gave us a tiny room with 2 single beds; there was no way we'd be able to fit in. Next we got moved to a better, spacious room with a larger bed. All was fine till we found BEDBUGS on our bed! We complained, then got moved to another room. Sleep was forgotten soon as we found more bed bugs in this room too. The next morning the receptionist was reluctant to give us breakfast even though it was complimentary in our booking. Food was horrible too, rooms were run-down, A/c was broken and the fan only worked at speed 5. I will never go there again, nor will I even think about trying the one in Bangalore. What the hotel has- spacious rooms, hot water, free wifi, bed bugs, unfriendly staff. What it doesn't have- clean rooms, value for money (considering the price, we expected much, much more).

I happened to be in Vizag in relation to a conference and had an opportunity to stay in the hotel. It was a nice experience in the hotel. Food was excellent and they serve a huge variety of dishes in breakfast, lunch and dinner...so that you can choose any thing you like. the breakfast was complimentary and very nice. self service for tea and water in the rooms provide privacy also

We drove down to this hotel from Hyderabad-Me,my wife and son.Being Sr Citizens, I requested front desk to send help for taking luggage from car to room. I was told that such a facility was not available!! We stayed for three nights (because we had paid in full online and no refund was allowed) and as an effort to conserve water on the planet! the bed sheets were not changed for four days!!
The two 5 watt bulbs( that's all in the room)is not enough to read the newspaper very generously given free of cost...An electric kettle with an electric cord 0f two feet is useless because the socket is three feet high from the floor.One member was assigned to hold it till water boils!!! There is no room service-so no snacks.The complimentary breakfast is pathetic. The chutney for the one rupee sized idly takes quarter hour to come and upma can be used as fevistck!! The "restaurant" scheduled to open at 7-30 AM with all dishes is still being swept at that hour when the fast food joint outside the hole is ready with full spread at 6 AM!!!
In the name of "CONCEPT" hotel,no basic facilities are provided but tariff is 25 to 30% more than full facility hotels 100 meters away. The attitude and service of the staff is very deplorable.Forget the breakfast,even if the room is given as complimentary,i will not step in.

Room Tip: Avoid the hotel to enjoy lovely visakhapatnam

Its very well located and looks very pleasing and attractive from outside and on entering the hotel but on ground reality, facilities, cleanliness and house keeping are really not upto the mark. A lot of more professionalism is required for improvement. Dining restaurant is good and ambience is also good. I was shocked to find that even the ash-tray was not emptied or cleaned when i entered the room with my family. The window doors were not working properly. Even the double beds are small. So better to skip this hotel even there is no further improvement.

We stayed at this hotel for a day but decided to quit after a pretty bad experience. The location of the hotel is good and the facilities were acceptable, but I felt that the service of the staff there was bad. The hotel is promoted as a no frills hotel, but no frills does not mean bad service. Also, we felt that the hotel did not present value for money based on the prices that they charge for what they offer. I would not recommend this hotel.
