“I must be in the smelliest room in this hotel!!”
Reviewed 25 January 2011

My room is (yeah, I am in my hotel room while typing this review) right on top of the restaurant, so everyday I can smell the grease especially during the dinner time. No so pleasant, but I can deal with it.
Today, when I get back to my hotel room from work at 6pm, they were painting the hallway right outside of my door. Construction at 6pm? Not so cool. And who know what kind of lead paints they are using?! after about 15min I got back to my room, my heart started beating faster and faster, and I started to feel nauseous. The smell was so bad I had to open my balcony door and bear with all the noises from MG road. I called to complain and the manager came to apologize and offered the air freshener. Good service and very nice people. However, I had to open the door to talk to the manager, and it now makes my room smells even more like cheap paints and I feel more sick after talking to them.

I stayed at the Taj res for business and can say for sure that the level of service here is second to none, i have read some of the other reviews and cannot comment on their experience but my experience was nothing short of bang on the money, i found the staff and managers professional and easy to deal with, wanted a car we got it, wanted toiletries got it, wanted information about local business got it, whatever i asked for i got and i did push the boat a bit sometimes, i did visit the Taj west end, as a resident at the res you get entry to the "club disco" (cannot remember name) at the west end and what an ultra cool place that was, top tunes and DJ and full of what is cool about Bangalore, very much enjoyed the place, i did have some pics but cannot find them, and just a small point, the room service and food was amazing, many thanks to the management and staff and i will be back this year.

I have stayed here for many weeks over the last few years, and have found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hotel location (on MG Road) is close to shopping and other eating venues as well

Stayed at Vivanta Dec 2010. Had booked the car to/from airport through the hotel. Was impressed with their efficiency and service. Whisked away from airport directly to room. Very clean. Cookie and fruit service along with turn down at night. Staff was very helpful, always smiling. Ate at two of its restaurants and also ordered room service. Food was good

Situated in the middle of most happening place of Banglaore, some 30 kms away from the international airport of Karnataka. It offers comforable stay for the guest who do no have to travel long distances to come to city centers to enjoy night life etc. Its a big property, very clean and upto standards. If you are looking at 5star comfort, then this is the place .the Rooms are big and can cost you somewhere around $250 per night. It has two restaurants which server excellent food. Do try the curd rice of this hotel. Places to visit are MG Road, Brigade Road (for night life, pubs, clubs etc)

This is well located, you can get a lot of work done in the city. A good coffee shop - a very wide buffet menu, decent bar for the odd-free late evening, and well-sized rooms.

The staff is friendly and efficient - right from the reception desk to the room service and coffee shop.

I stayed at the Vivanta on MG Road in Bangalore for a week on business. The hotel staff is excellent along with the food, service and prices. The hotel features 24 hour dining and room service. I worked nights and slept during the daytime without any problems or interruptions. The security at the hotel is excellent and well guarded. Room keys are required to get to any floor with bedrooms. The room came was always cleaned at my request during the evenings when I would be working. Fresh flowers are all over the hotel including in the rooms. Overall- a great stay while on business.
