Recent guest reviews
Being one of the oldest property in the city, the place has been maintained well. I had hosted an event for a small gathering. Food is great and hospitality is also up to the mark. Staff is very friendly.
For those who know this place, it is old school! We knew it as Blue D long before it became Vivanta by Taj. The place is centrally located, almost equi-distant from the airport and the railway station. There are a lot of happening places around - Koregaon Park, Kalyani Nagar and MG Road (Camp)
I am happy to thank the staffs of Taj Blue diamond and in specific appreciate the services rendered by Ms Joannah Tantri and Nisha Marathe . The stay was very comfortable and the entire team of Taj deserves a special appreciation
a good place to stay. closer to the airport and in the middle of the city,Taj is a nice experience. food is good, staffs are fine. from outside it looks small but its spacious. you feel at home. i really relaxed well. newspapers and magazines were in good numbers
The hotel is well ,located in the city with easy commute facilities to airport, railway station and shopping areas. Though the structure is of a old vintage, Vivanta touch is seen everywhere. The front desk staff is generally casual and not too keen on pleasing the guests, they are more mechanical than enthusiastic. Food is good but not great. Even the local dishes like Dhokla, Misal Pav etc could be better. Rooms are well maintained, house keeping staff too are quite efficient.
Have been staying at this place on my recent business trips to Pune. Had a airport pickup this time. The hotel is conveniently located for the non IT business areas of Pune. Usual taj ambience, comparatively small in size but not in quality. Staff at the reception helpful, check in and out very smooth. Room service and house keeping also at its best. Breakfast has enough spread to get you choices
I have stayed here for 2 weeks and my experience is good. The food is really good and the gym is awesome. The rooms are ok, being a good member I requested for an upgrade however didn't get it. The Gym is very nice with all the equipment and the sauna is too good. I tried the steam and an experience shower which is also very good. The location is also at the heart of the city and very good access. Hopefully will visit here soon.
Having been with Taj Brand for over four decades, Taj is my most favorite Brand for more than just a couple of reasons. This property is managed by Taj. It is owned by a great Industrial house. While it was Blue Diamond, a property run by the Industrial family, it had its own charm. Somewhere down the line, the Taj appeal has not come by till date. An uncomfortable disconnect remains lurking. While I am a resident of this city, I have not had an opportunity to stay here in past two decades, though I had a brief stay over 25 yrs ago, may be 30 yrs ago. The Chinese restaurant has nothing authentic about Chinese cuisine. We were disappointed. The 24x7 coffee shop has reasonably good business I see and the food is a 4.5 to 4.7, which pretty much high, and this is a mixed reaction as the chef change from time to time. My wife does not see to like the buffet of this restaurant, but there can be no complaints on service. It is good. The spread is welcome. My guest do not seem to want to stay in this property and therefore, it drops low down in popularity amongst friends and relatives, just as much as a lowering interest in our minds. The only happening place in this property is the coffee shop, which many a times spills out to pool side with some amazing stalls of fast foods and beer. You would not be disappointed on a week-end in festivals or good seasons, as this coffee shop would find a place for you and may entertain on a holiday or sunday afternoon. I have made several visits to this property. After Taj took over, some makeovers for the good have been there now since past decades. No change. It is good for business, wedding guest for stay but not wedding parties (too small),small get-togethers of 10-20 people for a lunch or dinner, very well located BUT with changing status of Pune, the entrance and exit have become a challenge.
Vivanta by Taj is renovated version of Pune's old pride and first five star property called Blue Diamond right at famous Koregaon Park. Nice interiors and cosy comfortable rroms. Perfect business hotel and near to airport too and located at Pune's most lively place Koregaon Park
it's my first time stay with Taja Vivanta. Excellent indian style reception on arrival. They also honored early check-in request. Friendly and responsive staff. Good buffet breakfast with verity of menu. Satisfied with prompt service. Location of Taj Vivanta is also an attraction. Over experience was satisfactory.
