“My splurge holiday $$$”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This was my family (me and my parents) vacation after a long time so we decided to splurge n live life king size :-)
So here we were at the taj blue diamond in pune.

The location is really good. Its at a walkable distance to the koregaon park shopping malls , the ooshu ashram n the German bakery.
We checked into their presidential suite.
Trust me the moment i entered the room my jaw hit the floor.
A beautiful bar counter attached to the living room leading to a king bedroom with an attached bath with a tub n sauna ..Yes !! Your our pvt health club.
The food was great must try their Chinese restaurant whispering bamboos its one of the beat at pune.
The complimentary breakfast spread was fabulous indo continental spread.
Only let down was their jiva spa which didn't have much treatment options.
Overall a great experience, will come back soon.
Thank you Taj

Taj properties are always a pleasure to stay in. The staff at reception was very helpful and courteous. The only problem was with the room temperature, it seemed a little too cold and was controlled centrally, the only way to reduce the temperature was to switch off the AC. There was some problem with the staff communication as well as some of them shared incorrect information (lack of training I guess) with me over the ask number. Overall not a very pleasant experience, but I may be an exception.

Room Tip: Higher floors recommended.

This is a pretty good hotel that is only about a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport, yet in the centre of the city. It's not huge and this lends it a more modest appearance that I felt quite at home with. The pool looked great but I didn't have the time try it. The restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. The Kadai Jhinga was indeed spicy (jumbo prawns in a sauce with green peppers) but tempered with jeera rice - the restaurant staff seemed amused that I could eat it without breaking out into a sweat. But once you've had a jalfrezi or a vindaloo in the UK there's not much in India that gets hotter than they do! The very friendly staff took the time to chat and explain some of the local events. My room 202 was clean, comfortable and quiet. I slept for hours in the armchair on arrival after a long trip from London via Delhi. I want an armchair like that.

Room Tip: MIne was 202. Perfectly quiet and looked out over the pool.

Excellent hotel to stay in. Completely Taj like. Good rooms, good food, good staff. Everything about the hotel is wonderful. The breakfast spreads were excellent. I was unwell on one of the days and the staff took good care of me. They even got me food to eat which was not on the menu. This is what service really means. I was deeply touched by their hospitality. Almost felt like home. A smart, clean hotel with great amenities. Try it to believe it.

Ate in the restaurant - very attentive, unhurried service. The menu was quite extensive and the staff were very willing to explain some of the dishes that we did not recognise.

The starters and main course were delicious and full of flavour, and thankfully, sensible proportions.

Well worth a visit when you're in Pune

While driving to Goa from North India, Pune was one of our halts. I am glad we stayed in this comfortable hotel and got relaxed before resuming our journey. Great staff, nice breakfast . Only flip side was we could not get two queen size beds and had to sleep on one King size bed. Since we were clocking miles and very tired, an individual bed would have been more relaxing. Would stay again.

I stayed at the Taj just after it had been refurbished, in fact work was still going on in the corridors. It's a very smart and clean hotel with good amenities including a gym and pool. Breakfast was up to the usual Taj standards.
