Stayed at The Orchid hotel, at Balewadi in Pune on a recent trip. The hotel is located on the Mumbai-Pune-Bangalore highway, so if one has work in Aundh/Baner area, which I had, very convenient.
The staff is very hospitable and friendly, excellent service and food is good too (room service). The breakfast buffet has too many fried options; maybe they can re-look at that.
Surprisingly, the rooms have wall paper and it is peeling off, gives a shabby feel. I came to know they have acquired this property recently, so assume they will renovate.
The Wi-Fi is good, and though on a busy highway, the noise levels within the room are fine. The Orchid group claims to be ecofriendly, but 3 bottles of mineral water in a single occupancy room was baffling!
I will stay there again for sure. No complaints. Just observations/feedback.More
