We spent a single night. The location is excellent. Valet parking worked really well. The rooms and amenities were excellent. The staff, particularly the restaurant staff, were courteous and extremely helpful. And, to top it all, we loved the breakfast. We are certainly going to return.

We had a single night stay in the hotel on Thursday 1st Nov. The Room was large. Reasonable comfort. Breakfast was alright. Nothing outstanding to report.
I felt the price was on the higher side. I think if we booked through a agency the price could have been lower.
Room size was large.
In Pune the weather is good. Day time is warmer and night is cool.

Room Tip: For short stay it is good. Room price was on the higher side.

We stayed here for 5 nights, the rooms were clean, the breakfast was nothing special and the same most mornings so after 5 days we were a bit over it. I am not sure if they get many westerners staying at this hotel but the staff didnt do a good job in making us feel comfortable, especially the restaurant staff, one of whom asked us some very inapropriate questions about our family. You get the feeling that they are talking about you behind your back. Not sure that I would stay here again.

It is nice place to stay at Pune. In heart of City you can have a stroll at MG Road. Famous Kayani Bakery and Bhudani Bros for Potato wafers Chiwda are at walking distance. Hotel staff is courteous. Breakfast is Compact but well prepared. Could get nice food in dinner too. They could provide more pillows. Dental, Shaving Kits, Sleepers and Comb were missing. You have to ask Room Service for it. No Cookies and Fruit Basket. But overall experience is good. Value for money. Most spacious Rooms than any Hotel in India.

Room Tip: Top Floor Rooms are quieter. Go for 421/422

A wedding brought us to Pune, where we were lodged in Aurora Towers. The rooms are comfy and clean, the service pleasant and not intrusive (the knock on the door at 7 AM to ask if we had laundry was a bit of an exception here) and the cafeteria hosts good breakfast and lunch. Location is great.

Room Tip: The central location with the accompanying sreet noise make a room on one of the upper floors a wise...

We stayed here during a business visit.
Front office staff is quite efficent, they were able to handle checkouts of 8 rooms in less than 10 minutes.
It is located centrally in Pune and is equidistant to major business areas of Pune. Hotel staff is professional and property is well maintained despite of being quite old.
The pricing is also fine, given the rates of other hotel chains and location of the hotel.
Hotel has two restaurants, food served is fresh in both, but taste is not so great as expected from prices.
Facilities like pool and healthh club
Rooms are spacious and have an automated power management system, which is sort of weird and means that to switch on bathroom light, you need to go to the bed.
Will consider it again while visiting Pune.

Stayed for six days at this hotel in the month of July 2012, on business. The stay was confortable but i am sure could have been better. The hotel, like the MG road on which this hotel is situated has definitely seen better days. As old residents of this towen tell me, MG road was the centre of attraction of Pune in the earlier days, but with the advent of malls etc, the charm is gone. Same is the case with this hotel. It certainly is a old property and has seen better days. Now, the rooms have a jaded and old look. Evene though they have wooed lamina on the floor, yet the room, though quite big and roomy does not give look of freshness. The bathroom fittings though new, cannot take away the feeting of decay with time.
The breakfast at the restaurant on the first floor was not satisfactory and compares with what is available at any two star ones. Even though the staff takes yr feedback, yet i doubt whether they are able to implement the suggestions made. However, the meels at their Chinese place Zen were good and the dishes well made. Firoz, the manger was quite helpful.
Overall, the staff were helpful and made a good impression, with the available resources.
I am sure, with more invertments, the hotel can regain it's lost glory.
