The name of the Hotel is now Parag. Though on an enviable location, 2 blocks beyond Mantri Mall on Sampige rd, it is not very well known...even the shopkeepers on the rd were not able to guide me!! A look at the rooms would probably tell you the reason. The rooms are just average as far as spaciousness and cleanliness... More

The name changed to "The Paraaag Malleswaram" and it is located near Mantri Mall and about 2.5 km from Railway station. The Indian Institute of Science is in about 40 min walking distance up the road and easy to find from the hotel, which was very good. The room was in a ok shape and toilet paper was provided, as...

First of all the name is changed as Hotel Parag. Management pls update. Overall it is a good property in good location (Near to Mantri mall, Metro station not far from Majestic) but the management is poor. Stayed for a night with family, staff were good and co-operative. Fine tuning required. Bathroom compliments to be improved to a great extent.... More

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
