Olive Residency is located on the Greams Road near Apollo hospital. It is very average hotel and the rooms are not spacious. The only positive point is its proximity to Apollo hospital. There are quite a few vegetarian and non-vegetarian hotels nearby. The place is easily accessible with public transport as it is close to mount road.

I booked this hotel through goibibo, for 1 night. When I arrived, they first pretended that they did not have the booking but when I showed my booking confirmation, they said they are fully booked. I protested and they told me as if they are doing a favour, to walk over to their 'sister' concern - another hotel 400m away....

It was clean and decent size room. Though Staff behaviour could have been better, but I think if you go for treatment,...

1) Hoteliers are not very professional, they laughed when asked for a towel. 2) Room is very noisy and not clean. 3)Bed is not comfortable. Overall, not value for money. Have stayed at a lot of budget hotel... But this is just beyond basic expectations.
