Vivanta by Taj - Blue Diamond
Ranked #14 of 219 Hotels in Pune
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Had great service experience, but was expecting a sort of grandiose from Blue diamond, especially in a big city like Pune.
Rooms were good, and staff was extremely pleasing in their behaviour. I really liked the breakfast area, and I always sat outside by the pool, and was able to enjoy the beautiful weather of Pune.
I found the place slightly on the expensive side, and thus the expectation of some larger than life hotel size. Nonetheless, enjoyed my stay, and special credit to the courteous staff.

I didnt stay n the property but was there for a coffee. Its the first time that a hotel actually helped us access the internet.

Most often Taj and ITC and other big chains have an attitude problem when you are not a resident guest. Though I am a gold member in most hotel loyalty programs.

This was an amazing experience.

Stayed for one night on a business trip. Physically, this hotel has seen better days. The rooms are small and seem like a dorm room. But the staff was attentive and friendly, and breakfast and happy hour were good. I would stay here again if I had to but I definitely review other hotels first.

this seems to be a relatively old hotel compared to the Westin in Koregaon park. Yet, the hotel delivers on all that you are looking for. the staff are very friendly and always ready to help. the room was smelling a little muggy which was the only thing off but otherwise great experience, quiet rooms.

Location 3
The hotel is convenient bring only about 20 minutes from the airport. But there is nothing of interest and no shops in the vicinity.

Hotel 3
The Vivanta brand is one notch lower than the Taj brand. This hotel shows this clearly. The building looks about 10 years old. It has a comfortable lobby and bar area. It caters mainly for business people and aircrew.

Bedroom 3
The rooms look a little old fashioned and spartan. Furnishing scheme is brown wooden furniture ansd buff colours. Rather dull and uninspiring.
.
Gym 2
The gym is small, It has the very basics to make it a gym.

Breakfast 4
The breakfast is a reasonably good. The lat time I styed here one year ago the breakfast was excellent. I wonder if they have lost a great chef.

Service quality 4
Staff are helpful and speak good English.

Value for money 3
Overall this is a sensible if uninspiring choice for business travellers. I would not recommend it for tourists because if is distant from the centre of town.
