When we hear about Taj it comes to our mind that luxury with great expenses. However, the things that we should believe is experience. It ensures great comfort and hospitality. The location is very central in Pune. The service is up to the standards expected of a Taj group hotel. The breakfast was great with huge variety. The mutton biryani was very tasty.
Vivanta is a nice property that is economical and has a great loaction. Rooms are large and spacious. The food is great. Its pretty well connected to kp and other places like kalyani nagar. Tariff is also pretty affordable. Staff is courteous and polite. I recommend this place for anyone who wants to be in the heart of the city and who wants value for money.
Basically I had visited Pune for a business meeting and hence chose this hotel as it is placed close to the heart of the town and hence going to and fro from the train station was a piece of cake. I had nothing short of a leisure and comfort filled stay a) The hotel has really good executive suites and they are kept very clean . Be) The beds are super comfortable and made a pleasant stay . C) The whole place has central cooling . The) The hotel provides a really massive swimming pool and a great well equipped gym . E) The pool water was pretty clean compared to other pools I have visited . Of) The room comes stocked with all your requirements right from toiletries to a mini fridge stocked with eatables and a tea/coffee maker with the premix powder . G) The hotel staff is very co-operative and are ready to help 24 hours of the day . H) The staff is extremely polite and respectful . I) The complimentary breakfast is simply tasty with a huge variety of foods . J) The cafeteria is a good place to hang out with a nice ambience and seating . K) The restaurant serves delicious food I would advise to explore the places close by as theres a lot to check out in the adjacent Koregaon park area for places to shop and visit. I wish I had planned for a longer stay, so spare at least four days when you plan this trip.
Stayed in Taj Blue diamond for a night on a trip. Enjoyed the stay there thought the hotel is not that big . A complimentary drink at arrival. Staff is friendly. Food is good. Internet speed was okay. Rooms spacious with all amenities. Overall experience was good though was expecting more from Taj brand name. But nothing negative as such it was a luxurious experience.
Very Spartan fade and a faded looking lobby can mislead you but once you are inside the room with the signature Vivanta decor you know this is like any other Taj property. But Blue Diamond surely should add more sparkle to its looks in the front. The breakfast was as usual a huge spread and though we didn't like the vegetarian items at the Sindhi food festival during dinner, the chef made us items from the all chart menu. The room service was as usual courteous and the housekeeping team led by Rahul made our stay even more pleasant especially with the lovely flowers placed in the room. The confectionery shop does have yummy goodies but could do better by having some happy hours. The hotel is conveniently located with the German Bakery located in the next lane and the Rajneesh ashram also being just behind. Nice place to unwind in Pune once you overlook the traffic snarls just outside the hotel at rush hours.
Stayed with family (incl 1 kid) in October 2015 Place/location: located in Koregaon park, relatively quite area. Property is excellently maintained. Business friendly as well as family friendly. We usually stay here for our annual visit (parks, zoo and a day trip to Lavasa) Food: excellent. Buffet spread is fantastic. Actually no, it is definitely a sin :). A sumptuous spread, lots of options, and icing is the desserts - muffins, do-nuts, pastries, etc a heaven for someone with sweet tooth Indoor activities; not much, except a pool. Pool is neat and clean. Room: a compact room, however, view isn't great as our window opened to the back end of the hotel Verdict: overall, a definite recommendation and you would hospitality like one would expect from Taj.
I had a weekend visit and planned to Pune in the first week of July 2015, stayed here on second day of my visit. Stayed as a couple Amenities: The rooms were good, clean. They have a mini-bar and tea/coffee essentials placed in the room along with the basic amenities. We had a pool facing room on the top floor. Medium size room with Queen Bed. Overall a very decent room Services: The service was not as good as expected from Taj. Basic toiletries are on demand. The housekeeping no, kept ringing and no one answered for about 20 minutes. Had to call the front desk to put out any service request. They do offer a seasonal fruit plate post check-in (again on demand) The pool timings mentioned were 9 AM to 9 PM but when we reached at the pool around 8. 15 PM the instructor was already about to leave. He was rude and would not let us use the pool saying he had put in chlorine in the pool as he did not expect anyone to use the pool Advice: Do not expect value for money here, it is luxurious but you have to be lucky to be able to use all the luxuries. Also, the breakfast spread is amazing, do book a room which includes breakfast. The property is very close to Koregaon Park and Airport so if you have to visit that part of Pune the location is very nice, do expect some traffic near the main entrance as this is one of them I would have been happy if the staff was not rude and more hospitable.
