The Oakwood
Ranked #107 of 219 Hotels in Pune
Reviewed 14 January 2010

It was a good experience to attend a wedding in central pune near Deccan Gymkhana. We found this budget hotel. Oakwood used to serve only Vegetarian food at its restaurant. It was convenient for us as we were attending religious ceremonies with elderly people who would not like other hotels serving non-veg. Its nicely managed place, young cheerful staff and cozy rooms. Noise could have been lesser but the street has become inevitably noisy due to trafic in growing Pune..

Oakwood is one of those places which you could easily miss if your not "looking" for a place to stay, not that its some dingy place its not very advertised. The place is actually very good and is located in the heart of old Pune, Deccan. Decent rooms and averagely priced. Its close to Shaniwarwada and Ferguson College. The staff are helpful though limited in knowledge.

First timer to a Servive Appartment, then this place looks no closer to a Service Appartment at all, you can very well compare it to a 4* Hotel, with 5* kind of services being offered.
Price is slightly steep though, but suioted for Business trip's maybe for 1-2 days.

If you stay in India, make it a "5-star" or then expect to be disappointed. There are no "middle-tier" hotels such as the Courtyard by Marriott or even the Holiday Inn.

The Oakwood was billed as a "4-star" and cost close to $100/night. Service was adequate, but the front desk is pretty lousy at keeping records of payments. My company was paying for the stay and I was continually harassed about paying the tab regularly even after explaining the situation.

The room was fairly average, the bed was uncomfortable since it was essentially two twin beds placed side-by-side. The bathroom was marginal with a broken toilet seat that never got fixed in the 3 weeks I was staying there.

You are better off staying at the Meridian, Sun and Sand or the Blue Diamond. You will pay more but will definitely have an experience consistent with what you will expect from a "5-star" hotel.

With my first visit to this city, I was looking for a good 4/5 star hotel. Unfortunately all the 5 star hotels were booked. After a quick search I came across the Oakwood hotel in Pune on good luck corner. It claims to be a 4 star hotel and on the surface the reception area looked clean and reasonable. It claimed to have a business centre which turned out to be a overused computer in the corner. The room had paint peeling which appeared to be from water damage. The bathroom had mould on the walls and ceiling. The lift was precarious not always stopping where it should.

The restaurant was clean and served good vegetarian food. The staff were helpful in the hotel except for the reception where even though payment had been taken from our card they were insistant on taking payment again. I will not need to reclaim this.

Even though there was plenty of parking my car was not allowed to be parked on the grounds. Having visited many countries throughout the world and stayed in various grade hotels I would descibe this hotel as 2star but could easily become 3 star.
