Vivanta by Taj - M G Road, Bangalore
Ranked #37 of 693 Hotels in Bengaluru
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I had only a one-night stay at the Taj Vivanta in Bangalore but it was just great. The room had every feature one could want and the bathroom, like so many hotels don't have, was spacious with room for everything. The staff here were so gracious and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend the Taj Vivanta, MG Road, Bangalore and I don't usually give such praise without reservation.

The breakfast here was excellent, with one of the staff members supplying me with all sorts of different India food, from Dhose to the wonderful Egg Appum :-)
There is a small shopping centre across the road, the pool and bar are quite nice.

This hotel is in a busy part of Bangalore, so ask for a quiet room.

Room Tip: ASk for a room away from the road. Be prepared for the odd "beep" from the traffic.

Stayed here for a night in transit. Although the hotel is located on the bustling mg road, its corner location makes it easy to get in and get out. Service of the staff is simply amazing and they were ready to ensure that mine and my business partners needs were met. Airport pick up and drop arranged were amazing with professional drivers. I got a room facing the ulsoor lake and although the lake is a bit far away you get a good enough view to catch some snaps from the balcony. Bathroom is a bit cramped but I guess because its a relatively old property, one cant change everything.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing ulsoor lake (if possible with balcony) on a higher floor (5th floor). This way...

I stayed here for a 4 day business trip and was so impressed, I've booked to go again next week for another 8 nights ! The rooms are a good size and very comfortable with flat screen TV, a DVD player, surround sound, tea/coffe facilities, a great desk and a very comfortable bed.

Food in the restaurants is great value and superb quality. Lots of choice for breakfast including hot and cold, plenty of fresh fruit, western, chinese and local foods.

My only criticism ? Friday night is ladies night in the inhouse night club which is great fun but very noisy and some of the guests seemed to struggle containing their intake of drinks and were noisy in the hotel corridors until 3am. I've suggested to the hotel management that they should have security checking this on a Friday night which they've assured me they will.

Overall a great hotel, perfect location ( by a stop on the new metro on MG Road )and best of all, superb friendly and professional staff.

Looking forwards to my next stay !

Centrally located with all the amenities and a co-operative staff. There is a nice pool and a restaurant on the pool side. The food is good and neatly served. The only downside is that the rooms are small and the access into the room is through a narrow lobby. The stay is a value for money.

Room Tip: Choose the pool side or the metro facing rooms

This is an oasis in chaotic Bangalore. All levels of staff were excellent, check-in was a breeze. Staff in the restaurants did a good PR job in promoting the hotel by their efficiency and friendliness. Special mention of Ashwanee?? in Cafe Mozaic at breakfast time.
Cafe Mozaic gave a fantastic variety of yummy choices for breakfast. It was hard not to stuff oneself when there were so much delicious food on offer! On Wednesdays, it hosts a Hawkers Food Buffet which was great value - bottomless beer and all the wonderful food of India. The 'Hawkers' starters and entrees were so delicious that we just filled up on that and had no room left for mains. We did try to eat some desserts!
The Graze offered superb fine dining. Great food and fanastic value. Staff were attentive and friendly too. The 2 restaurants here definitely set the food tone and expectation for our trip through the rest of India.
The hotel rooms were clean and spacious.
The hotel is close to shopping centres. Commercial Street which is a haven to shop for local goods is easy to reach by auto rickshaw. The city centre is not too far off.
Will recommend this hotel to anyone.

it was really nice staying with vivanta.. the location is just fantastic. you get out of the hotel and you are where you wanted to be in banglore.. quite economical when considered other taj hotels. well food too was quite good which was quite unexpected for me, since last time i went to dine in one of the taj hotels. it was pathetic.
this one is really a good hotel, i would alws recommend my frnds.
