“Great hotel - noisy location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2010

A truly great hotel - never been disappointed with Taj, not this time either. Excellent service, everything top quality and well maintained. Pricy, but worth every penny! Moved here from the Lalit Ashok which was a disaster compared to Taj (bot classified as 5 star for reasons I cannot understand).
Food also fantastic, truly World class!
Going to Bangalore do not miss out on Taj Vivanta!
The location is certainly a disadvantage: in the middle of one a major road junction where everyone honks the horn 24/7.
Finally, I cannot stop being annoyed about hotels at this price range charging you for wi-fi connection! This is however the case in most of Asia/Middle east and they should look to Europe and the US.

Had a fantastic look weekend in Bangalore. Hotel was luxurious with personal, attentive but unobtrusive service. The hotel offers a fantastic inclusive breakfast buffet which offers a wide selection from Masala dosa's to bacon and eggs, plentry of fresh fruit and a nice selection of pastries. The freshly squeezed juices were a real treat which were made to your own weird and wonderful selection of fruit. We tried the bar earlier in the evening and enjoyed the cocktails by the pool. Did not see the bar at night but is apparently also a popular nightspot for non residents. We used the spa on the sunday, which was very nice - modern clean facilities and unrushed bringing the perfect end to the weekend. Rooms were spacious, very comfortable beds, with good lighting and excellent facilities. Best of all had to be the selection of DVDs that could be ordered to your room. with a surround sound built into the room and the DVD being delivered with cocktail and pepsi it was like having your own multiplex!
The only negatives were that we took the airport transfer with the hotel. Very comofrtable and friendly service with selection of CD'S you can choose from but it also came at a high cost with the transfer costing 5 times the amount of locally ordered A/C cab. We took the local cab back to the airport, not quite the same comfort but far better value.

When I entered the hotel, I was thoroughly impressed with the service of the staff. Everyone, from the door man to the people at the reception were friendly and talking with a smile. Mind you, as obvious a requirement this sounds, these days its rare to find even the hotel staff smiling and talking to you. Anyway, I got a room on the 8th floor which was clean and comfortable. The hotel was located at a convenient location as well. Previously I have stayed at the Taj West End, which I am extremely fond of, but the Vivanta met my expectation as well. At night I went to their bar which had a good variety of domestic and international alcohol. The music was a little loud but I guess after a hectic day you dont seem to mind that too much. The morning breakfast was good, though I do think there could be some more items on the buffet. I did think that the hotel was slightly overpriced, but the service was high class and I did think it was worth every money spent.

Had a 3 night stay here earlier this month. Some of the best customer service I have ever experienced in a hotel. Such good attention to detail and nothing was too much for any of the staff.

Our room was spacious, modern and great attention to detail - little touches included orchids on our towels, turn down service, fruit and homemade cookies in our room each day.

The Jiva Spa is by far one of the nicest I've visited in a city hotel space. The staff were kind, friendly and accommodating and the treatments were wonderful - and cheap!

Will definately stay here again on my next business trip to the city!

My wife & I stayed at this hotel from 28th till 31st August 2010. The service was very efficient and staff were helpful. Even though the hotel rated in India are expensive it was worth it. The rooms are very clean and very comfortable . The most important thing is that the staffs in all the departments go out of their way to make your stay very comfortable. The Jiva Spa was really great too.
