For a Comfy Stay in a Metropolotian...

Realized that we haven't updated our Portal for quite a few days.. as usual, travel takes a toll, but the luxury in form of places, hotels and resorts that we review is simply worth bringing it back to our readers!!
So, this time we reviewed the newly launched upper mid-scale hotel - Novotel from the well-known Accor Hotels, in the beautiful Pune city!

Reception Area of Novotel Pune Nagar Road...
This is for the first time that we reviewed a property that was not located in some exotic locale, but in a busy bustling city right next to the airport. That's where the first words of praise begin! Yes, any woman travelling to the city, be it work purpose or as a tourist will sure love this comfort. While the hotel is situated right next to the busy highway, which is Nagar road, the moment you step in you completely forget the outside noise. 
We simply loved the reception area, it's big, it's vibrant, and it's designed in such a way that you easily get the access to the fine dining areas. Probably that's how business hotels should be designed. Now, let's shift our focus on the rooms, the interiors and the services that they offer...

Elegant Room Interiors.... Glimpse of the Standard Room!!
We checked-in this beautiful room on a sunny afternoon last week. The room is quite cozy, and absolutely sound proof. You don't even get the feel that you are in a city, not in some hilly destination. Everything feels so fresh, for a simple reason that the property is new. What we liked about the room was the easy layout, and the colour combination. Be it a standard room, or the suite the overall layout of the room remains the same. Even the personal care amenities are well taken care, though we missed the body lotion in the bath area, which again can be arranged on request. 
As a women traveller what you will like is the access to the property. This 9 storeyed business hotel allows public access till second floor, which has a pool and gym area. Rest other floors can be accessed either by the staff or the residents. This actually makes your stay even more comfortable.

Pune is a wonderful place to be visited by tourists. And, if you are on a work visit to the city, Novotel has to be your perfect choice for a short stay, as it comes with a wonderful itinerary of city tour...

Fact File

Located close to the commercial and retail precincts of the city, Novotel Pune will offer 223 guest rooms including 14 suites, meeting spaces augmented by the latest technology and interesting dining and recreation options. This is the 8th Novotel property in India.

The hotel will be offering five food and beverage options – The Square - Novotels’ Signature all day dining restaurant will feature an open show kitchen and interactive dining experience; Fuzion, offering unique Indian & international flavours with a creative twist; Soak - mesmerizing outdoor pool bar on 2nd floor of the hotel; Bar-Code a sophisticated and graceful lobby lounge; and Crust - the Patisserie & Deli for oven-fresh delights and sweet indulgences.

What We Liked
The food is sure of great standards, especially the variety that the hotel is offering. Don't miss the desserts, be it traditional Indian or international. They are pure bliss!!
We also loved the quick room service that is well taken care within 10 minutes from the order places!

What We Observed
What you might actually miss in the hotel is the Spa experiential, which the hotel might add on in the later stage, looking at the overall feedback from the guests... So, as of now, go there and enjoy the other lovely services that Accor brand of hotel is offering this year-end!!
And, of course the very basic body lotion or the moisturizer that's missing in the standard rooms...

So, when are you heading to this beautiful Pune city, just to check-in at Novotel Pune?

Kindly note that AWSW was invited for the review, and our travel and stay was taken care by the hotel only...
