Where to stay in Pune
The former base of the prime ministers (known as Peshwas) of the Martha Empire for over 140 years, the city of Pune in Maharashtra is most famous for the stunning Aga Khan Palace, the resting place for the ashes of the late Mahatma Gandhi.
With so many historical sites that indicate key moments in the chapter of Indian history, there is plenty to explore in Pune with the eighth century Pataleshwar Cave Temple - dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva – the Dagadusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple and the Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum also well worth inclusion on any tourist’s itinerary.
The city is also a gift for those who enjoy adventure and photography, such is the geographical beauty of national parks like Kamala Nehru Park and Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park, while the relaxing setting of the Empress Botanical Garden is the perfect spot for those looking to add to the unique experience of the Marathi culture.
Pune is not famed for its public transport service with the bus service regarded as inconsistent. Most visitors tend to opt for private car or taxi hire – and with Pune not being a particularly large city getting around should not be a major problem.
The five-star JW Marriott Pune offers an eco-friendly accommodation option with access to many of the city’s historic museums, forts and shopping attractions. Guests can also choose from a wide selection of in-house restaurants serving Indian, Asian, Italian and international fare.
A four-star city center apartment hotel close to many of the best entertainment sites in the city, the Oakwood offers both one and two-bedroom units all tastefully furnished with modern facilities.
Located on the Pune-Nagar Road in the heart of the city, this three-star hotel is just 4 km from the airport and close to the business and shopping areas. Although relatively cheaper, the hotel offers comfortable air-conditioned rooms with a contemporary design.
