The city of Pune is so beautiful and clean. The pleasant weather just compliments the overall aura of the city. On one hand, you can visit the heritage places like Aga Khan Palace, Shanivarwada while on the other you’ll find the fancy cafes and hip night culture. Though there are quite a few 5 Star hotels available we personally liked Sheraton grand and below you’ll find out why we liked it so much.

Getting There

Just 8 km away from Pune airport, the hotel is situated in the centre of the city with easy accessibility to the famous places Aga Khan’s Palace, Koregaon Park. It took us around half n hour to reach the hotel from the airport.

The Hotel

At the hotel entry itself, you’ll be welcomed by the smiling and courteous staff. The well-trained staff is the backbone of the service industry and Sheraton Grand Pune understands it perfectly well. The hotel is built to give you the feeling of old times with a hint of modernism. It looks like a giant haveli with modern interior and amenities. The lobby is palatial where you can sit for hours and enjoy your coffee.

The Room

We stayed in their Deluxe room on the sixth floor. Though the area of the room was average but the space was decently utilised and was fully equipped with the essential amenities like mini bar, coffee maker, work table, TV and Bluetooth music system etc.

The Food

‘YUMMIlicious’ is what comes to my mind when I think about the food at the hotel. From the breakfast buffet to the candlelight dinner at their restaurant Chingari, everything was delicious.

The breakfast buffet was served at their restaurant called Feast from 6:30 am to 10:30 am. We were impressed by the variety of breakfast spread that they have from authentic Maharashtrian dishes such as Poha, Pav Bhaji, Aloo Bhaji, Misal pav to the excellent English breakfast, everything was worth tasting. My favourite was the dessert section – Eggless danish and vegan bread, muffins were wow.

Well, who doesn’t like a relaxing session at a spa? Sheraton Grand’s spa is a perfect spot to rejuvenate yourself, or you could just enjoy their rooftop pool with your kids and family. The hotel has a fully equipped fitness centre which is open almost all the time to cater to the needs of fitness freaks.
