I had stayed here before and after the remodel. The new updated version of this Taj property is a great value. The breakfast is great and the restaurant in the back is excellent! The staff are helpful. It’s a nice spot for an extended stay.

Their is a approach recommended by renowned authors to all businesses : "Customer First". If you want to experience it first hand then you must book your stay in Vivanta Residency Road, Bangalore. The staff and services at the hotel are trained and designed keeping in mind the "Customer First" approach. I Stayed in the hotel between 20-21st Mar 2021 (that is during Covid-19 pandemic times) and was little afraid in beginning of steeping out of my home for work. But the staff at the hotel made me feel like I am staying with my family. The hotel has taken all necessary & adequate precautions related to Covid-19 protocols and made my stay comfortable. Special thanks to Chandrashekar Govinda (Duty Manager), Anand Babu (in Mynt) and housing keeping staff who all made me feel comfortable and helped me over come my fear of Covid-19 with their excellent service and friendly nature.

The location is great, its a 3 min walk to brigade road. Has one if the best biryani restaurants of Bangalore just opposite to it. But the stay is very average. check in counter had only 1 person and there was a long que to check in at 10:00 pm at night. Due to which I was also upgraded to the next category room. Even that room was soo small that 2 occupants will become a crowd in he room. Bathroom was ok, decent newly renovated with enough lighting. Even breakfast spread was decent. For a one business day it is ok if you have work nearby. Surely not for a family/liesure outing. Nowehere close to TAJ hospitality
