“Average for a Vivanta Brand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I had stayed here for a period of 7 days while on a project visit. The hotel is in a ideal upmarket location Koregao park which is a plus point. There are very good hangout nearby like the German Bakery, Good Wine shops for spirits and ABC Farms ltd.

The proximity is close to the IT Desitination Magarpatta. But if your office is in Hinjewadi i would not suggest this Hotel. peak hr traffic will make your journey too tiring.

If you need economical food, you have option of half plate option. Morning breakfast too is excellent and would love it if you are a kerala food lover.. Appam with coconut milk is wonderful.

About the hotel rooms. The furniture are very old and may not give you the Vivanta look. since this building is a old which was renuevated.

The hotel looks spacious but the moment u enter u feel its cramped.

One bad thing about this is U need to may payment the day you check-in.. for a long stay don't prefer this hotel . U are gonna get a big bill before your corporate settlement.

All in all a good very good hotel. Had a good stay.

Room Tip: U need to may payment the day you stay.. for a long stay dont prefer this hotel . U are gonna get a...

We did notice your comment about the payment for a long staying guest and would like to clarify that for the security reasons we do take a pre-authorization of the credit card. The exact billing amount is charged only at the time of checking out. However, in case of the debit card we charge for the room and taxes, balance amount is settled at the time of check-out. This practice is followed at all the hotels.

Look forward to welcoming you back soon and assuring you of our best services at all times.

Warm regards,

We had been there during Diwali and were pleasantly surprised to find Diwali celebrations going on. The Hotel being a business Hotel we never felt like it being one. The restaurants are wonderful with a wide variety of menus. The service is excellent and the staff extremely courteous. Its worth visiting even if you are on a pleasure trip with family.

I stayed here for the second time (first time 3 years ago) and I can honestly say the experience was great both times. From the moment you go through the gate security to the moment you leave you know you will be well cared for. They actually pointed out that they knew I had been here before which kind of makes you feel welcome.
The staff are attentive but not overbearing, the rooms are good sized and well appointed with hairdryer, big shower, very comfortable bed, TV, wifi (at a cost - but they checked with me a couple of times that the wifi was working ok), mini-bar at reasonable prices. It has 3 restaurants and a bar and a cake shop and a grill by the pool in winter months, and pool with a very nice terrace. Only beef is that the pool is always in the shade - what a waste of all that sun!
Prices are excellent by UK standards - you would expect to pay 3 times this rate in the UK.
The hotel is in a "popular" location but oh the traffic! I walked 100 yards to an ATM at the petrol station and nearly got run over 4 times! There's nothing much around it except another hotel and lots of street "stalls" so you will need a taxi to get around (but they are only about £10-£12 for a day! The hotel is set back far enough from the road so you don't get pestered from the incessant peeping of horns.
I have stayed in 3 hotels in Pune and this one is the best - you will not be disappointed if you stay here.
There were a couple of corporate events on whilst I was there - they have a conference facility - so on a couple of nights the restaurants were very busy - everyone eats late (up to 11:30) so early dining is quieter. They also sometimes host Indian wedding parties which are fantastic to be a spectator at!

Visited the Vivanta by Taj at Pune in Sept of 12 and was floored by the service of the Team there. The breakfast spread as well as the service there is great and the people there make the difference.

The rooms there were being renovated and the room that we got was one of the renovated ones. My spouse tried the massages at the spa and was more than happy with the service.

If you want a Work/ Holiday stay in Pune.. you cant go wrong with this hotel... Combined with the Exemplary service of the Taj it is a given that you will feel like home!!!

The entire staff is very pleasing. It is a friendly staff all around with great humbleness. The rooms are big enough. The hotel has variations in terms of their pillows, as you like it. They are thorough in terms of their cleanliness. Whispering Bamboo is the right place to dine chinese cuisine( if you enjoy chinese food). They have a buffet wherein the variation of salads is mouth watering. The European/ Continental dishes are very tasty.

Room Tip: Queen rooms are good for solo/ couple to stay.

Kudos to the housekeeping department of this hotel for accommodating my hard-bed request! I'd intimated them of my special requirement beforehand, and they were happy to accommodate. Thank You.

The hotel is your typical Taj - basic but comfortable. The check-in process was smooth and I was ushered to my room. The room was a bit basic (I wouldnt use the word 'opulent' or 'luxurious' here). It had an LCD, a music system with home theater speakers (a good addition though I was too tired to use it!) a work-desk and a bed. The hotel also provides Movie DVDs on request.

The breakfast the next morning was delicious - still remember the masala idlis!

Just stayed for one night but couldn't find anything to complain about.

The food was good. Rooms were nice and clean. Very pleasant service. Help desk was excellent and very responsive. But rooms not upto expectations as it could have much more as a 5 star. Rest the guest service is excellent. No match for that.
