A Taj Hotel on MG Rd BangalorePosted Feb 12, 2015
I have visited here 3 times in past 2 years. Staff keep changing and I hate having to deal with the rookies even though they are nice people, but they are not well trained. At the rates I pay in Taj, I should not have to train their staff. - Reception did not know how to allocate my expedia booking and give me my Taj Immer Circle points - breakfast coffee (black) took 15 mins to come - Fried eggs "over easy" could not be made by the chef. At his first try the white part was raw; at second try he sent over an omelette; and at third try I got the same runny egg white! After this 15-20 min ordeal I cancelled the order. - Asked plain paratha but got a paneer paratha instead. So i sent it back and got the worst paratha i have ever seen - lumpy, very thick, and areas which were poorly cooked. Really - as a Taj guest I come there to be spoilt - not to teach the new staff how to make Fried eggs "over easy" , or to make paratha. Please hire better staff, and improve your inhouse training.

Good business hotelPosted Jan 12, 2015 on Hotels.com
This is as barebones a business hotel as you can expect. The high point is the location, it is bang on MG Road, close to the banking district. So, if you have a job to do nearby, and are not fussy about the room interiors, this is certainly the place to go. It is value for money for a night's snooze: where you come in late, hit the pillows and are off the next morning. If you are, however, looking for any more indulgences, you may be in for disappointment. A note for the Taj aficionados: This property, even though it is tagged a Vivanta, does not have any of the service standards of a Taj. I guess it is short-staffed. One cool tip: Even if you are not a smoker, ask for a smoking room. These road-facing rooms have a balcony, which opens towards MG Road. The tradeoff is between the bit of noise and the joy of fresh Bangalore air in the mornings. But after 8 am, the noise predominates. Don't say, I didn't warn you.

City hotelPosted Dec 16, 2014
Pros: Everything. I have rarely enjoyed a stay so much anywhere in the world. Decor was tasteful; breakfast varied, loved the dinner restaurant I used.
Cons: A little attention to minor and cosmetic issues in one room. Perhaps a few more foyer seats, but this is being picky.
The staff were brilliant throughout. I was a little ill, and they couldn't do enough for me. The hotel felt welcoming from the moment I arrived. Even the security requirement was painless. Early arrival was no issue. Stayed twice and both rooms were immaculately clean. After a long day out sightseeing and feeling tired I was greatly pepped up by the waiter who served me. I'll be visiting again, I hope and expect.

Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent service and great location for Bangalore.
Cons: While Vivanta is a very nice hotel, it's not quite a luxury experience.
Location: Large mall and restaurants nearby. Right next to the metro line if you dare.
Bangalore isn't the best tourist city, but if you're here for business, you can't do better than the Vivanta. It's centrally located with a very nice mall and eateries within close distance. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. It's not over-the-top luxury, but it's a very fine place to stay with courteous and capable staff. They were setting up some very nice handmade Christmas decorations as we left and they seemed excited to share that experience with their guests. Great stay!
