Very nice hotel

Posted 08-Jan-2015
Pros: Workout facility was top-notch. Breakfast was always enjoyable.
Cons: The transportation costs to take a car anywhere were very expensive. Given a specific address, the driver got lost and had to pull over 3 times.
Location: Nice location, easy to find.
The overall experience was positive. Food was great, staff was friendly, the workout facility was terrific.

Comfortable stay at the Taj

Posted 05-Jan-2015 on Hotels.com
Leisure getaway with family. Hotel and its facilities was very good. I found it a little "unknown" by the riksha drivers until I realised that it was known as "Taj Blue Diamond". Great Stay - would recommend it.

Good hotel in a convenient location

Posted 05-Jan-2015
Pros: The staff.
Cons: See above re: experience.
Location: Bund Garden has a children's playground and a poorly-maintained jogger's park. Take an auto to get there.
The staff were all excellent. The room was comfortable, and room service (bed turndown, roll-in bed set-up) was prompt and courteous. The restaurants (Latitude and Mystic Masala) were good and once again restaurant staff were friendly and gave good service. The only strange thing was the absence of clean glasses next to the self-service juice bar in the lobby. Why have a juice bar if you don't intend to provide glasses? The first time I asked for clean glasses nobody delivered -- although they did take away the dirty ones! The second time (the next day) when I asked for clean glasses a staff member actually came and served juice to my two kids, which was very nice.

Very nice hotel in the heart of Pune. Excellent fitness center with free weights, lower body machines and cardio equipment. There is also a steam room. Breakfast and lunch buffets rock; however, the fish curry leaves much to be desired. There also isn't a mattress cover--just a flimsy sheet. For the value and amenities, a great hotel.

Good prices...but that's it.

Posted 29-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
Average hotel, good prices. Once upon a time it was the crown jewel of Pune hotels. How the mighty have fallen. Newer hotels have sprung up everywhere. Blue Diamond hasn't been able to keep pace. Not with the checkin process, the restaurants or the decor or the facilities. The food was so-so. The pool was not heated. The training of the front desk leaves a lot to be desired. They do not work with the guests. Instead it seems like they are government officials asking for everything in triplicate. That was probably the worst I've seen. Everything took an hour to sort out from the check-in to the check out. Travelers beware: They will ask for ID for ALL the guests, not only the person whose name is on the booking.

Fantastic Stay at Vivanta by Taj Blue Diamond

Posted 13-Dec-2014
Cons: i hope to add WC Washer
I really enjoyed this hotel. the only thing that was not good, there is no WC Washer i was not comfortable about this so i will gave 3 star for this thing. The staff here are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are very nice and extremely spacious. I had a king bedroom. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was huge and had a separate shower.

My first experience at the Taj was pleasant

Posted 24-Nov-2014
Pros: The Breakfast buffet was awesome - delicious and fabulous. They had variety of traditional Indian treats. Taj makes the best food.
Cons: The pricing should be blanket pricing for the room - not per person.
Location: This is in downtown Pune. Convenient to everything in Pune but can be far for some of the businesses located in the newer areas.
This is my first stay at the Taj. I am pleasantly surprised at the class of service and the facilities and room comfort. This is top notch. I am proud of the fact that a totally Indian Hotel Chain is serving up Five Star luxury that matches world standards. The rooms were fantastic, comfortable, cozy and welcoming. The hallways were well lit and clean and the entire property had an at home feel.
