We have been staying here for three months already as part of a business trip in one of the serviced apartments and we love it.
The location of the hotel is good. It's not in the centre of Pune but the city centre and all attractions are easily accessible via taxi or auto. Most of the business areas are nearby, which is presumably the reason for the location. It is conveniently located near the airport but there is bizarrely no airport noise. It is also very close to Phoenix mall for shopping, restaurants and cinema, and there is a free shuttle to both provided by the hotel.
We are staying in the basic one-bedroom apartment but it is perfectly adequate even for two people. The kitchen facilities are good, bedroom and storage is ample and the bathroom is a good size. If only I had a bath it would be perfect! The accommodation is comfortable, furnishings new and, once the curtains are shut, it's really very quiet. We get a good night's sleep every night. We have housekeeping twice a week, though daily replenishing of water and towels. After a couple of weeks, housekeeping started giving us 6 instead of 4 bottles of water, which I assume mean they noticed we were using them all quickly. We have access to all the hotel facilities, including room service, which is reasonably priced.
The hotel facilities overall are good. The bar is very comfortable, though of course quite expensive. There is an Italian restaurant, which is very good and has the occasional theme evening, and another restaurant serving Indian and mixed foods, which is okay though we haven't visited often. The pool, spa and gym are all impeccable.
The breakfast buffet is one of the best we have had in India, and we've stayed in a few more "5 star" hotels around the country. There is a really good choice and everything is fresh. There are clear labels and a couple of live cooking stations. I can't think of anything missing, within reason, though some gluten free bread wouldn't go amiss.
Of course, the real positive here is the staff, who are always friendly, smiling and happy to help. It's nice on a long business trip to see a friendly face at the end of the day and we certainly get that. Security is tight but not over-bearing. Of course there are the occasional requests forgotten or mistaken (getting a wake-up call one day early was a highlight!) but this is all to be expected in a large hotel with a lot of guests, and I've never had any complaint about the service here. Special mention to Sunish and Edlyn at the apartment reception, and Rohan and Priyanka in the restaurant and bar.
Overall this has been a lovely stay. We will be here another two weeks, though may be back in the future and would have no problem in staying here again. Would recommend it, at least for the apartments.
