“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

This property is operated by the Royal Orchid group. Located off a very busy road, it has limited parking; Reception & Lobby are compact, but pleasing to the eye.
Airport pick up was efficient. We hadn't asked for it but went along as other Royal Orchid properties we use (Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Pune) offer this complimentary service.
Restaurant was closing when we arrived, but was very kindly kept open so the 2 of us could have dinner. Spicy Biryani was much to my liking.
However, when we finished, we were made to wait at reception for 15 minutes because they wanted us to sign for a chargeable pick-up as "it was in their system", whereas we certainly hadn't asked for it. As the staff couldn't show me my request, they reluctantly issued our room keys ,which didn't work (past midnight we were scrambling around to solve this)!
My room was airy (no view), compact bathroom with a tiny counter for the sink- No Hair dryer or exhaust fan. A fan in the room made cooling more efficient. Room seemed unclean (burn marks on side table; dirt & scratches on the white topped reading table).
No King beds were available-I slept poorly as a result. Worryingly, several electrical switches were too close to the bed and were covered by pillows (to my mind that's a serious fire hazard).
Interesting wall paper & textures on the wall (woven matting painted over).
The mini bar was empty-despite which the reception (while checking out) wanted to know whether I had consumed anything. This worried me enough to protest- when it emerged that the hotel had emptied it out for a large group (then why ask me about consumption ??).
Breakfast spread was large, but had limited options for Non-Veggies (only eggs)
Small gym on the 5th floor; no free weights; needs a good dusting/cleaning.
Our banquet arrangements were adequately handled; Rogan Josh at lunch was very tasty.
Sofas in the Banquets foyer were dirty and need a dry clean; faux lotus flowers in the floral arrangement (next to the 1st floor lift) have outlived their useful life.

However, the pick-up cost continued to dog me the 2nd day too. When I went to pay, the cost had been quietly added to my bill (the person who'd promised to sort this out had conveniently omitted to do so); I was lectured on "local cabs charge Rs 1,000/- "etc etc.
Eventually, after 3 visits to the reception and several phone calls, it emerged that the pick-up had been ordered by an employee due to oversight. Not wanting to cause any embarrassment, my staff agreed that the hotel could apply a reasonable charge of Rs 700/-, the final billing was Rs 800/-. Local cab to the Airport actually cost us Rs 600/- (through the evening rush hour).

Overall, the Hotel is excellent value for money; I may go back if sure that most of these niggles have been worked out.
Staff's service orientation needs improvement (particularly at reception- where nobody seemed able to take responsibility)

Room Tip: Do avoid rooms facing the main road; likely to be noisy.

Yes Definitely- Right Place to Stay for Business Trips. Good Professional Approach of the Hotel. Location is not great but almost central-Near to MG Road/Shivaji Nagar. Old Hotel Taken over by Ramada. The facilities are old but refurbished. You may not find sparkling facilities but they are reasonable and the same is reflected in the tariff charged for this Ramada Hotel. Restaurant Food is Ok. and Rates are very reasonable. Right items are available at very reasonable rates. Basic Gym is available. 7 Floor property and the view of city is great from upper floors. In all a good Option. Ramada Professional Culture is visible and makes you comfortable.

Room Tip: Few Rooms are not of regular shape. You may also find triangular like rooms like X03 ., X-floor. But...

its not like other Ramada property, very small in comparision to 4 STAR property. However a neat and clean hotel and well placed in heart of the city. This proertt belongs to some blue orxhid group and sems Ramada only manages the hotel. Morning breakfast was decent with limited spread of food. The staffs are really good and helpful, you will find many bengali staff there.

This is a hotel I picked up at the airport. They have a booth at the domestic terminal. Though it was a new year week, the rates were surprisingly good.
Front office people were very nice. The hotel itself had undergone a makeover. Everything was clean and spruced up. Late into the night, after I checked in, the room service did produce a great omlette.
Breakfast - complimentary - was good. Found a lot of guests, obviously this is a popular place.
Tigers Trail was the name of the restaurant - food was good. The bartender can whip up a nice cocktail. The restsurant was crowded in the evening, this time, with outsiders.
The stay was comfortable; everything worked. What put me off is the road outside. No, this is not located in a posh area. Not a good address.

Room Tip: Stay put in the room, take a car to get out; morning walks best avoided.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights on business travel. The room I stayed in (superior) was circular, and a wee bit small though okay for a single person. But it was clean and well appointed for its price and came equipped with a mini-bar/safe etc. The best part of this hotel was its warm hospitality and service with a smile, which is missing nowadays in many 5-star properties. I had forgotten all my toiletries, a full set of which was promptly put in my room at 11:00 o'clock at night (I had checked in late). On request I was also give a 7th floor room which gave a glimpse of the city around. Indian food at the hotel was really good, and the waiters helpful with their recommendations. Overall very good value for money, especially for business travellers!

Room Tip: Go for non-circular rooms if available, if you like more room space.
