Reviewed October 28, 2013

I booked a room at this hotel for 2 nights and 1 day. Hotel is situated at good location. I paid Rs. 1200 + taxes exclusive.
I had a worst experience ever. I booked this place looking at cost and location of the hotel.
But hotel staff was worst ever. The manager at reception did not even have manners to behave with the customer. The service boy was dumb and was not helpful at all. Rooms are big enough but it does not match with the one shown in pictures. Rooms were stinking and AC was old and noisy. Still the most pathetic part of this hotel is their treatment to the customer.

I stayed in tis hotel from Sept 10, 2013 to Sept 16, 2013. The hotel is very conveniently located near Pune railway station and all central business areas. Though the property is spacious, the room quality and maintenance are poor. Somewhat offsetting this is the fact that the staff is good-natured and accommodative. If minor improvements are done, this can become a good family hotel.

Based on the reviews here, I booked a room in this is hotel for a 2 day stay last week. The cab driver seems to know the place - so as soon as I said Hotel Meru, he said he would take me there. I doubt if it is living on past reputation - probably was famous earlier.

It was drizzling in Pune (had been for the last couple of weeks) so I opted for a single Non AC room. The moment you entered the room, you could get a smell of wet clothes accentuated by the lack of sunlight for a number of days. The bathroom wasn't very clean either. The only advantage was that the hotel was in the heart of the city, a stone's throw from the station. And close to the place of my business. Hot water was available in the mornings and the breakfast buffet was good. Unfortunately the TV didn't work in my room either. Though they offered me another room, I had no patience to switch to another room - for the sake of television.

Overall it was disappointing - more so because I had trusted the feedback in Trip Advisor when I had booked a room in the hotel. For Rs 1200 plus tax, I had expected much better facilities in a place like Pune.

value for money hotel. Nice location not far from station and good shops are nearby. Food is good. Room Quality can be improved as doors are old. The building itself is not new. Staff is also good. Definitely try once.

Stayed with my friends for couple of days. Good hotel with value for money. Go for Ac rooms to get good king sized beds. Nice peaceful environment with very helpful staff. Server a good complimentary breakfast and are flexible in check in/checkout timings.
