Stayed at this property for 5 days in October from 7-11. Since it is an older property, the rooms and corridors do smell musty and the carpets look worn. But it is a very clean place. Rooms are pretty good with nice pleasing furnishings.

Best part about this place is the variety of food options available. The breakfast buffet is excellent with so many options and such good service. I would definitely recommend the restaurant 'mystic masala' for a taste of the regional cuisine. Latitude offers a very good 'vada pav' as well as a great pasta.

The service and hospitality at this place was commendable- very polite staff. Fitness center is a good one with all the necessary equipment.

Two issues i had: Even though they say that it is a 24/7 fitness center, u have to inform them ahead even if u wish to use it around 10 pm. And when i had to go at 9.30 pm one of the days for a 30 minute workout, the person in-charge at the place was grumpy about it.So why not just put the actual times for which they would like the fitness center to be used?
Also, at the reception, they took the entire five day room rent charges at the time of check-in. This wasn't done when I stayed with them in 2012 and is not done at other TAJ hotels where the credit card number is just noted and not charged. So that was a bit unexpected and annoying.
That said, for the great food, amazing service, I would still recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the swimming pool- pretty nice view!

I stayed at this hotel recently on a business trip to Pune. The hotel retains its personal touch and is well suited for family visits, Several features distinguish this hotel from others, the smiling and smartly attired ladies in the reception, the homely touch in organizing a CHAAT evening with a choice of all that you want to eat at an affordable price, the HAPPY HOUR at the bar with additional drinks offered for free and several such innovations. The Manager was very active going round the bar and restaurants and talking to guests with an easy familiarity. The only shortcoming was that the bar was fashioned out of a part of the lobby leading to a lack of privacy. However the manager informed that a new location for the bar was under construction. This hotel may not be the best business hotel in town but highly recommended for individuals who prefer a homely touch on their visits.

The rooms are well appointed, the staff extremely friendly and courteous. My only peeve, the suite we had booked was supposed to be a 'non smoking' one, but were allotted one in the 'smoking' zone. Luckily it didn't smell and, though close to the main road, there was no disturbance from the noise of the traffic.
The food was delicious, and the breakfast spread sumptuous!
We stayed there through the Diwali holidays, 2/11 through 5/11/2013

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms are better. If you are not a smoker, make sure you get a 'non smoking' roo...

I have been staying at this Hotel since 1977 and through the last 35 years have seen this hotel transform itself to a professional establishment ..... a worthy member of the Taj Group.

The facilities in the rooms have been upgraded and are matched by the excellent hospitality that one associates with the Taj Group. The staff appear to be very well motivated and do all they can to make your stay comfortable.

The location, just 20 minutes from the airport at peak traffic hours, is another reason for staying in this property.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors overlooking the pool

This is my 2nd visit to this hotel. I forgot to put a review the first time. But good in all ways. Nice comfortable rooms, good breakfast. Very good location. Really a nice old hotel but well maintained. Am travelling again to Pune in a few months, will stay here.. Good location and well priced for a 5 star hotel.

The hotel is small compared to other Taj hotels and it is more suited for business trip rather than leisure. Location is very good with lots of eateries, (and German Bakery) within walking distance. Breakfast was exceptionally good and lavish. I had a very pleasant stay here with my husband and in-laws.
