The O Hotel
Ranked #19 of 220 Hotels in Pune
Reviewed 23 January 2012

A stylish and modern hotel with a nice design. There is no wifi in the room but they do have expensive wired internet available on your desk. Wifi available in the lobby but for a charge. The price for internet is the same as you would pay in the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai but ofcourse you cannot compare hotels or Pune to Mumbai. The internet cost is the main drawback to an otherwise classy hotel.

I was upgraded to a suite and will say it was large but far too dark, definitely not enough lighting for the nights.

Roof top pool is also badly lit, be careful not to fall into the water in the dark.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor to avoid the noise.

Stayed in Pune and this time decided to try out The O Hotel. Location is fantastic, rooms are nice and bit different design with a giant size tub in an open bathroom. Full size glasses instead of wall overlooking the side road. Book through Hotels.com for the best rates, if you call or book directly with hotel, you may not get the best rate. Staff could have been more friendly. Would have liked a late evening checkout then i could have tried other hotel services like gym, spa etc but was kicked out of the room at 1 pm.

I wonder why business hotels dont provide free internet and that too in a city like Pune where Infosys has its largest employee pool. i guess penniwise pound foolish.

Prefer St Laurn to The O.

Room Tip: book on hotels.com and fantastic location

We stayed at the O Hotel for 3 nights over Christmas. The hotel looks beautiful but our stay was marred by poor service, inconsiderate fellow guests and other irritations. The room was stylish, befitting a 5 star hotel, but too badly illuminated to read. There is no Wi-Fi and room broadband is charged at nearly £10 per day - this in a city which prides itself on its cutting edge IT industry. Guests in a nearby room smoked heavily, with their door open so the hallway was reeking of cigarette smoke. Their children were running around the hallway until nearly midnight. We asked the reception staff to intervene on both counts twice (after we had politely asked the guests to close their door, but received a refusal), but the cigarette problem persisted.Service in the bar was extraordinarily slow and inefficient, partly because there was a language problem with the bar staff. The rooftop restaurant served pleasant North Indian food but the restaurant is an accident (or accidents) waiting to happen - it is dimly lit and the floor is a series of decking islands, which even if well-lit, would be hazardous. On checking out we were presented with a bill in both sterling and rupees, with an extremely poor rate of exchange. We asked for the credit card to be charged in rupees and ticked the slip accordingly. Despite this, we were charged in pounds, thus being overcharged by around£25, something which we are taking up with our credit card company.

An amateurish operation. When the staff had made a mistake they refused to correct it as 'it comes dircetly out of my wages and I can not afford it'. Gives some indication of how they are treated by the management. You have to ask for everything at least three times before it is done.
They are just slow and incompetent. Buffet is 24 hours - lukewarm and tired. No wireless internet in-room and broadband internet is expensive at 700 rupees per day. Staff always look harassed and there are lots of big family functions which preoccupy the staff with kids running around. Good location - they are trying to create a boutique hotel but they haven't got a clue... What a shame - with better staff and good management this place could be great. Not at international standards.
