“Exceptional Service Good Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I generally stay at another hotel in Pune, During my last visit, I stayed at Sun n Sand, The staff at this hotel are very welcoming and make you feel relaxed. The rooms are same as any other 5 star hotel in Pune. However, here I felt relaxed and could work without any disturbance. I did not hear any outside noise. Excellent Wifi speed. Hotel team was flexible with my requests. My flight was late in the evening, front desk was very cooperative and kept the room for me till 8pm. I will stay at this hotel on my next visit to Pune.

Room Tip: Executive Deluxe room is good and spacious if you are staying for more than 2 nights.

On my recent trip to Pune, i stayed for the third time at this hotel. Its well located and has all the comforts one expects from a good hotel. The rooms are clean and quiet with good amenities. Staff is welcoming and polite. Breakfast, which is included in the room rate is good. Swimming pool is a small but acceptable considering the space constraint. This place used to be the Holiday Inn before. They have maintained the same standard.
However, on this recent trip i had to being to the attention of the reception the careless attitude of the housekeeping on one particular day. Due to a wedding at the hotel they were probably short staffed. But this must not happen.
I would stay there again.

Hotel rooms and the restaurant is excellent. The Staff is typical puneri but you have to adjust on the location and total hotel view and facilities. Please make sure you give 15 to 20 min for checkin and checkout it is bit slow.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms at the corner as these will be less noisy

i am glad i chose sun n sand for my visit to pune.at first i was reluctant because generally high end hotels do not offer a flexible check in and check out time.but sun n sand was very cooperative and helpful in this.they allowed the check in at 7 am because of my train timings.starting from the railway pick up to the check out, staff was very very amazing, very courteous. i stayed here for 2 days and it was hassle free.clean and fully equiped rooms,delicious food and courteous staff - made my day.i have to specially mention the breakfast buffet.i had read in the previous reviews that the buffet was not extensive and just ok.but to my surprise,it exceeded all expections.it had a variety of choices from indian to continental to english. and i also have to say that when my friends came to visit me at the hotel,they too agreed that choosing sun n sand was the best decision i took.thanking you.i am sure whenever i am in pune i will definitely return to your hotel.

Premium example displaying pride of ownership. Friendly staff, that starts with reception and carries thru both dinning choices - Kabab Hut, and Carrots-N-Celery. Food is good. The guest room is the MOST fully equipped room I have used in a very long time, from someone who logs 100 rooms a year for the past 9 years. The room was very very clean, comfortable with great linens,great towels, had an iron, ironing board, robe, slippers, and every other amenity you would have in your personal residence - Qtips, cotton balls, sewing kit, dental necessities, shaving needs, hair dryer ... you name it, this room had it - far from the usual hotel equipment. It also had a mini bar and free bottled water on every night stand and table. The coffee maker was new and it had a good tea selection. THIS ROOM WAS #1 for features and home-away-from-home feel.

A landmark property in Pune ,just ahead of the Bund Garden bridge, currently owned by the Sun and Sand Group of hotels, the hotel has been the hallmark of comfort and standard in the city.
The service is unobtrusive, the rooms comfortable and the restaurants - Kabab Hut and Carrots N Celery are in great demand.
The hotel is popular with the corporates in the city for their training programs owing to its central location and the support services.
The elegant lobby leads off into different directions to the restaurants and the coffee shop - with the meeting rooms in the basement.
Parking is a little restricted but permission to park on the road is availed.
Altogether a neat package and more hotels of this kind - offering good value for money - are needed.

Room Tip: Room are upto starred standards.

my car is directly driven to portico of the hotel as there is no much set off place in front.But once entered we felt relaxed with quite ambience in the lobby.however there is limited accomidation in the lobby for the guests waiting as much of its place has taken by lounge restaurent.the unique feature of the hotel is the placement of swimming pool in the front side usually we may not find.139 well equipped rooms cater the needs of guests along with diffrent restaurents like Carrots n celery, Kabab hut, 262 the lounge, etc. Ample place for functions & interactions available through banqueting facilities like -the maratha,the coral,the senate etc.I would like to appreciate 2 features of the hotel firstly -the complementory breakfast- filled with almost all types of food local and western.secondly the upkeeping of toilets with good toiletiers.
we enjoyed the stay with courteous staff.
