“Good but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I stayed for one night on a business trip. Check-in was quick, room was clean and well appointed, staff were polite and courteous.

In comparison to other hotels in Indian cities where I've stayed on business trips, I found it a bit expensive at INR 9,000 per night without breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room for good views of Coimbatore city.

I had been to this hotel with my family and we had absolutely loved the visit. Right from the checkin and the room services was excellent i should say.
We had traveled with our child and the room services made sure that the food was for her and made her happy. The staff were very friendly and corporative. The breakfast has very much improved from the last time we had stayed. We like it very much.
The only regret i have is that the stay was to be paid by the booker who has arranged a function in the same hotel. This was confirmed by me before checkin by phone and in person with their reservations, but while checkout i was informed that their manager had changed the payment to direct which i was not aware of. When there is a change made like this i request them to get the confirmation from guest before doing it.

My family has made it a habit to follow the taj hotels durin our holidays,and we went to coimbatore Vivanta this time,with an additional purpose of writing an exam too. The hotel is great,lobby is awesome,location is very much in one of the poshest addresses of coimbatore. Rooms were also trendy, newly made,and hence,even better,very contemporary. The usb,HDMI ports provided were great too. Hightened security was a bit of a bore,but then can't complain bout them,not in this age. Elevators worked only with your room access keys,so be sure to take it with you when you go out of your rooms when someone is inside,because otherwise you ll get stuck at lobby level! Pool and spa re sparingly used,perhaps because the business travellers just don't ve time for it,but they were beautiful too.food was just good. Not over the top. Breakfast was good in the southern fare,poor in continental. Didn't try out their famed Chinese restaurant so can't comment on that.
But everythn good I had enjoyed,I lost in the final bill settling. I had booked online, via their wesite. First they shows 6100 for three ppl incl tax,when I pressed book,the next window shows around 7600. We were fine with it,and thought the 1500 was extra for the third person. But when the final bill came,it was 9600. How they calculated it I didn't understand and the guy at the reception was not all the willing to explain too,tellin it was for the extra person. We had booked for three right from the start,so that shouldn't ve been. I told him so,but he was not ready to listen,instead movin over to the next person,a foreigner. I wasn't in a mood to quarrel since I was on my way to an exam and went off. Horrible.never felt so cheated,and being the inner circle member,I was shocked,after all the stays at the taj,I ve never felt this bad. The reason I mentioned foreigners was because durin check in,for us it was a slow process,took fifteen minutes and we weren't offered a welcome drink. On the other hand a foreigner who came after us checked in before us and he was offered iced tea. I felt really ugh bout the whole hotel,even durin breakfasts,the ppl there were fussin around with those ppl. Totally not the taj experience i was used to. Vivanta by taj surya needs some serious relearning of the core taj service concepts. One bad experience and i ve not chosen taj after that,i stopped collectin my inner circle silver points. Terrible service.

Nice hotel for a business trip to coimbatore or if you want to spend a night before leaving for Ooty / after coming back. Swimming pool is big and nice with a barbecue restaurant by the side. Nice breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool view :)

We stayed in Vivanta By Taj Surya in Coimbatore as business trip.. Very love that place call "Race Course" really nice in evening.. Lot to time pass... Very slow moving place. Just 5minits walk from railway station.. And 10minits drive from airport. Meeting hall are good and quality of room, A/C, and food are good.. Easy access to downtoune. 3days we enjoy the trip nice business visit..

Room Tip: Deluxe Delight is delighted...

We stayed in this hotel for one week and overall were very pleased. The service was wonderful, the food good and the rooms comfortable. We found the frequent power outages annoying, but fortunately they only lasted a minute or two. Having stayed previously in Coimbatore in a private home, we have experienced 14 hours of power outages a day. So the backup power available at the hotel was a blessing!
Our only complaints about this hotel are minor: lack of hooks to hang items in the bathroom, lack of sitting area in the room, and poor drainage in sink and shower. If you can afford the price of this hotel, you can be cool and comfortable in this very crowded, hot and humid city.

i often visit vivanta for the weekend buffet...located at the heart of coimbatore and in race course just makes it an awesum place to hangout...
the spread extends to not only southindian but continental too to a very great extent...
the best part is the desserts which i think u can absolutely skip the main course jus for diggin into the endless varieties of desserts...by far the best dessert spread in coimbatore..

very humble and hospitality engulfed staff....
the price too very much economical among the top motels in the city...
