The ‘Talera Group’ of All-Veg Hotels, Pune


For vegan-friendly restaurants in Pune reviewed in this blog, you can click this link.

The Talera Group of Hotels in Pune was founded by Shri Motilal Talera in the 1940s. It all started with a small lodge in Wilson Garden, Pune. The business has now expanded to six hotels in different parts of Pune city. Supposedly the largest group of hotels in Pune, all six hotels under the Talera Group is vegetarian. This means that all the restaurants and cafes in each of the six hotels are vegetarian and comfortably vegan on request. Each hotel is suited to the specific needs of different travelers. A brief description of the hotels is as follows:


1) Hotel Woodland: A 3-star hotel situated within walking distance from the Pune Railway Station and at a 20-minute distance from the airport.

4) Smart Inn: Also situated in the Deccan Gymkhana locality on Fergusson College Road, the Smart Inn is “smart” for various reasons that you can check out in this link. We liked the fact that a family accommodation for four members with two interconnecting rooms costs Rs.2000/- per night only. Smart Inn is based on the concept of  'self service'. The hotel does not have a restaurant; however a complimentary breakfast is provided, which as mentioned before is vegetarian/vegan. Click this link to find out the contact details of Smart Inn.
