Fantastic experience of my short stay at the Taj Vivanta, MG Road, Bangalore.

The warmth in the welcome right from the time the car reaches the entrance and i got off to the time i left from there was simply superlative.

This is a people business and its these people - from the bell boy to the security to the folks at the reservation counter to the Managers managing to the show to the restaurant folks....just about everybody. Warm and friendly, at attention to help and address any request or requirement.

The room is functional, comfortable, clean, everything as you would expect out of a Taj property.

The restaurant had a theme dinner - Bombay street food with unlimited beer !! My complaint - they didn't tell me about it or advertise it in the lobby. Would have had lesser beer outside before reaching the restaurant :-))) The tandoor was spicy & tasty - loved it !!

Tarot reader !! That was a 1st time experience with me. And on a 50:50 basis i was quite happy with what i heard :-)) Now hoping that what she said does come true ;-))

Overall experience - Excellent

Would i go there again - Most definitely

Most highly recommended for the tariff charged.

When first arriving from the airport, I was impressed by the service we received. The lobby looks immaculate and the choice of on-site restaurants is good. However, it started falling apart when I got to the room. The room was outdated, but the worst was the fact the airco was not sufficient for the room and made the bed feel like it was damp and wet. Also the plumbing had issues at the room next to me, and there was constant banging by the onsite maintenance guys for a good two days. Also the restaurants were disappointing at nights, most of the menu wasn't available and you ended up only being able to pick 3 or 4 items of a menu. This is not worthy a 4 star hotel.

Stayed: September 2011

This is my sixth time staying at the Vivanta Taj MG Road and I can honestly say its my home away from home on my frequent and long business trips to India. I love the service, the rooms, the people and the facilities. The fantastic service at the MG Road begins the moment you step off the plane when you arrive in Bangalore (they greet you at the baggage carousel to assist you into your airport pick up transport) to the moment you go through security to depart India (the same person assists you in checking in for an international flight, fills out your departure card for you etc) and everything in between - no other hotel I have stayed in offers this fantastic, personable service, The hotel ensures everything runs smoothly for you during your stay. Nazim, as per usual, is a wonderful, caring and friendly staff member that always looks after my colleague and I. All staff serve and greet you with a genuine friendliness and professionalism which is hard to beat. My colleague and I were sick with a stomach bug whilst staying at the hotel and all staff (including the manager) constantly checked up on us and did their best to ensure we were comfortable which I felt was really kind. This hotel is definitely my home away from home and I cannot wait to return again!

I stayed here after a gap of 12-13 years, it's changed for better. Facilities remained contemporary. Rooms are of right size. Though it's over the busy street, sound level inside is low and acceptable. Check in was speedy, Staff are cordial in their behavior.

Breakfast is great, have an extremely wide varieties. Enjoyed it. Health club is small, but adequately equipped, no complain. It's nice.

Overall, hotel gives a contemporary Taj experience.

Extremely accessible & within walking distance from Brigade road.

The service was extremely meticulous - I left my nail clipper behind and the staff took great length to find me a perfect clipper.

The breakfast is amongst the best in all Taj hotel chain. The room was cosy and luxurious.

Outside of my hotel I saw a giant transformer robot ad which was quite a delight.

The only downside is that the room is that it was also facing the busy ringroad. But that's a trade off I am happy to take considering the accessibility and the impeccable service.

Room Tip: Try to select a room which is at the back of the hotel.
