    I would like to get a suggestion for a 5 star hotel in Pune, where I plan to stay for one week.

    I know to some all 5 star hotels must be good, but it's not the case, as the service differs as well as the facilities.

    Please provide names of some fo the best 5 star hotels in Pune.

    Thanks in advance if I am not able to give a reply.

    Overview

    Pune, best known as the hometown of the great Maratha leader, Shivaji, is one of the most developed cities of Maharashtra. To its credit, Pune has a long history behind it, having been the capital of the mighty Peshwa dynasty, and having been the capital of the British empire thereafter. With such strong heritage, it's only fair that Pune is fast becoming a popular tourist destination in the state. The city, with its mixture of modernity and heritage, is truly such a dear destination and you're bound to love it more as you spend more time on it. Over the years, many hotels have been established in Pune as well, ranging from budget to luxury ones.
