The Orbis, Coimbatore

The Orbis, Coimbatore is one of the best budget hotels I ever stayed in.

I usually do not prefer staying at commercial ‘hotel’ type of hotels, I prefer resorts or ‘home stays’ but my husband likes proper hotel type hotels.
That was the reason we selected the Orbis, Coimbatore.

My experience with The Orbis, Coimbatore
The hotel is located on main road just 10 min away from ‘The Coimbatore airport’ .The first thing that you notice is the infinite circles in the interior and exterior design.

It was simple,white, squeaky clean and has a soothing quality. It has all the necessities that you would expect an average hotel room to have.  The most wonderful thing in the room is the bathroom with glass walls and in-built speakers. It was comparatively small in size but the glass walls made it look larger. Probably it was designed for people who don’t want to miss the serials even for few minutes.

I could  comfortably fit in the  huge wardrobe.

We had only breakfast buffet there and the food was reasonably good.

More than the roses, I was amused by the location. It is on one cliff with altitude of 2.2km overlooking the light grey clouds trying to kiss those tall tress and a petty town.

Present day Rose garden, Ooty harbors 20,000 varieties of roses.
There are roses in every imaginable size , color and names too. Some were almost half my head. The person(s) who chose names for different species might be very creative, some very eccentric kind of names were seen.
The names like ‘Jayalalitha’ were really surprising.
