Disappointing the second time
on Sep 12, 2017
Staying here again after 6 months or so. Had tried to book the place many times in the interim, but it was either sold out or rates were astronomical.
This visit was quite disappointing. Rooms and toilet are clean, but breakfast was a big let down. Eggs are charged extra, there is usually only 1 or 2 main items like Alu parata, iddly, etc. Food ordered in room service was expensive, but good.
General housekeeping needs a big push, boxes, stale smells abound. If you're looking for a nice place to eat outside, there's a place called Mint Leaf Kitchen nearby, a short walking distance. It's a small place, but food was good.
Wi-fi is complimentary, but only for 2 hours! It worked only the first day for me after which it always said my quota was over.
Oritel needs to get their act together and they could be really good if they tried. Anything more than 2000 per night including GST is not worth spending here in my opinion and I would stay here again only if it was in this range.
Good rooms and food at a very good price

Though Oritel Apartments doesn't look in the best of shape from the outside, the overall experience concerning the rooms, food and staff was very good! Minor issues in the apartment were quickly fixed. The staff are very polite.

the location is excellent, very close to powai lake. spacious apartment with basic facilities but badly needs renovation / maintenance. staff is friendly. food is good but choices are limited. has swimming pool but that too needs some attention

This place is located in Andheri, near the Powai lake, quite easy to find because of the D mart nearby. After a major shock a day earlier in another hotel in Kalyan (read my review on Hotel Mayur Residency), we booked Oritel online at around the same rates as the Kalyan hotel and were half expecting a repeat of that disastrous place. However, we were pleasantly surprised here.
The building is at the end of the road and is fairly quiet. The rooms were good, a large hall, a bedroom and a kitchen. I got one facing the pool (which doesn't seem to be in use however) and the bedroom faces some hills. Food wasn't great and some effort in that direction would certainly help.
The place needs a bit of polishing, eg - taps that look green and old, but in comparison to the general places available to stay at this price, Oritel is far far better. Unfortunately, when we tried to book a second time, their rates had shot up 3 fold - it was certainly not worth it at that price. If you get a deal at 2000 a night, it's a real steal and a place worth staying in.
Rooms are large enough to have business meetings in, I would recommend this place to anyone.

we stayed in Oritel during a short business trip.
Hotel is good for solo travelers if your are not able to find any decent accommodation.
Rooms are ok but food is very bad and avoid hotel food.
Keep it a last option.
