reasonably tidy hotel but the promised wi-fi does not work at all. food just about okay but lot of restaurants are round the corner and food wouldn't be a problem. mantri mall right next to hotel is an advantage, along with the metro.

I stayed in The Basil hotel during my last visit to Bangalore, which was about 6 months ago, and again recently this month. Except that a new management has taken over and the name change to The Paraag Hotel, the decor, cleanliness,comfort and service quality remains unchanged - just as good as it was during my previous stay. The only... More

stayed here for a night, it was a last minute booking through cleartrip.com. Although the photos of the hotel were a lot more spacious but the actual room was not the same size. I guess since it was a last minute booking they gave me whatever room was available. I reached late in the night and the staff was not... More

Was accommodated in one of their recently refurbished rooms......which is simply excellent. The sense of cleanliness arises from the fact that the flooring is of white marble as also from the clean and fresh white sheets on the bed and the linen in the bathroom. The room itself and the bathrooms were impeccably clean. The beds were comfortable with fresh... More
