Reviewed June 24, 2013

Hi, last saturday dropped in at Hotel Orchid ,Pune. Had some mis perceptions of this hotel and am glad i made it. Must mention the friendly General Manager Mr.Luellyn D'Souza who spared the entire morning taking me across each floor of his hotel and explaining in detail the importance of the hotels location. The food is just groovy and surpasses my expectations . The Goan Prawns curry and Bassa are just to finger licking good. Saurav their chef , spread out a couple of dishes in a jiffy and deserves kudos too.

next time i am in Pune , Orchid here i come !!

Room Tip: Since on the highway , saves the trouble and time of Pune traffic.

Attended a function at the Banquet of this Hotel. There were over 400 guests. Food was excellent.The audio system was very good. Service was a bit slow - maybe they are not used to having such large gatherings. The Air Conditioning needs immediate attention. It was quite stifling inside the hall. All staff , right from the entry gate greet you with a warm "Namaste". Overall a good experience.

The Orchid in Pune is a fabulous hotel if you happen to visit Pune. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is fairly courteous and helpful. The food too is of excellent quality.
The only worry is that it is quite expensive especially considering that it is a bit out of the city limits. It makes for a good stay overall.

The hotels need to do a lot to improve. At times it feels that the staff is on a different team n try and compete to not help.
The prices are average, expensive for the service....the rooms although are good.
Service is where the hotel needs to improve.

Spent a night at the Orchid on my way back to Mumbai. Reached there at 11 p.m. Though the front desk was trying to charge us more, when we mentioned that we had checked the prices on the net, he readily agreed to give us the same deal. This also included breakfast. We had dinner at the Gardenia and the service was good. Though I have given this hotel an average rating it is definately more than that, but not very good. We asked for extra pillows and they were supplied promptly. The breakfast buffet was good and the service prompt. So why the average rating. The hotel is already showing signs of wear and tear, there are cracks in the wall in a few places and the common area carpeting needs to be changed. It is just a 3 star hotel which is trying to promote itself as more. The self promotion on the in house TV channel is pathetic, the owners need a crash course in public speaking !! The rooms need a little more sound proofing to shut-out the honking of the trucks from the near-by highway. It may be faint, but audible. Also, though we had set the room thermostat to 18 C, the A/C was quite ineffective. One observation that needs to be mentioned, and I hope that I am wrong, is how effective is the fire sprinkler in the room when it fitted on a side wall and not overhead. Has it been checked and is it spray all the way across the room, I sincerely hope so. Having said all this I must say again that the hospitality is amazing, the staff well trained and courteous, but more fluent in the local language.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms facing the highway.

This is more good if taken as a Inn, there is no value of a five star.Buffet is good.Room service is poor and daily cleaning is just average. Location is good, staff helpful. In my opinion take is as a purely room on rent not as a Hotel.
