“Good business hotel. Nice rooms, good service”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Stayed here for one night earlier this year on business. First time in this city. The hotel is located in the city and is your typical business hotel in the Taj Vivanta brand-style. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful.

The room was as expected of a contemporary business hotel as was the bathroom (see attached pics).

I ordered room service and the food quality was good - the 'appams' actually came hot and were still fresh which was a good thing. I ate breakfast at the restaurant and that was also a decent spread with a live counter for eggs, etc.

Would stay here again if on work though not the closes hotel to the IT park if that's where you headed.

All the Staff are extremely friendly and make you feel at home. I visited many luxurious hotels in India and abroad but the friendliness of staff is the best. ever very helpful and go out of the way to make you comfortable without one's request or demand. it is in born in them to help and to make you comfortable. That to without looking for any gratitude.

The restaurant manger really takes care of your needs and helps in getting the correct meal. Very helpful.
I always try to stay thier

A nice Hotle with good overall impression and service, but there are better ones. Very friendly staff, food reasonable good, however the breakfast buffet was not oppulent. Swimmingpool looks inviting, however not sure if the water was clean with the many doves and crows who came to drink.

I stayed in the Hotel during the last week of December 2013 on a business trip for two days. The Check in was carried out at the room, which I thought was nice especially if you are coming after a long day of travel. I can't find any fault with the room; decent size with a nice bathroom. The bathroom amenities were really good. The morning buffet spread was good with live counter. The bar in lobby was good place to relax after a long day. The staff were very pleasing and always had a smile on their face. Wil stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights in jan 14. Very nice, clean, modern. All as expected.

Concierge service very helpful, we were attending a wedding and they helped finding cars, shops, hairdressers, all sorts.

The hotel is in town, so expect some traffic noise, but it is background noise so wasn't an issue for us.

Food in the hotel was nice, drinks expensive.

We spent 4 nights and were treated so nicely by every staff person we dealt with. Everything about this hotel was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only negative thing about the hotel stay was the fact that they charge 600 rupees for wifi per 24 hrs.

On my second visit to this hotel I was in general impressed with the check in (fast and with no hassles), the service (anything you ask for is delivered efficiently with a smile), simple yet clean rooms, and a lovely dinner at the coffee shop with a live band from Sri Lanka. The sweetest part about this band was that they went from table to table asking for song requests and played that song especially for you (whether english or hindi, or as we requested, a Sri Lankan song!). It just made the evening so special and magical.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool facing room on the 6th floor!
