The hotel is ideally located. It is quite a nice building with a lovely garden. The check-in was quick, the staff was very friendly. I was bumped to a bigger room. The room was high up, with a lot of light. It was beautifully decorated and quite spacious! There was AC and a fan above the bed. The big downside... More

We booked accommodation for about 10 members of close family, based on reviews from others on tripadvisor and the pictures on the hotel website :) All of my family members were extremely happy with the service provided by the hotel, and raved about their stay. The hotel staff was always ready with a smile and had the best attitude. The... More

The hotel is tucked away cozily in the back alleys of Lavelle Road and boasts of an awesome view on the terrace. The staff, notably Arumugam, is very hospitable and helpful. Allowing alcohol consumptions on the terrace would have definitely been a plus point. Anonymity, coziness, cleanliness and luxury all in one. I'll definitely revisit for my weekend urban getaways.

I spent a couple of nights at Purple Lotus when I was visiting Bangalore last year and I had a wonderful time. It's located bang in the centre of the city but set back from the main road so you have the best of both worlds - the privacy of a secluded hotel (important for when on holiday) and the... More

This is my third stay in Purple Lotus Hotel and I feel that this hotel is not the right track: room should need to be refreshed (as for instance temperature of shower which is instable), many little things starting to fall apart... Anyway, this is still a very good choice for a stay if you like a very central location,... More

Arrived at Bangalore late at night and took a cab straight to the purple lotus. The location is in great condition and the staff was very helpful. In my next stay I hope to enjoy for a longer stay! I would recommend to a friend coming to Bangalore.

Pro's: > Located in Extremely posh and quite area in middle of city. > Crafted with White color interiors and exteriors for pleasant look. > Water fountain restaurant with... More

Stayed here for a night. Nothing special about this hotel. Just a decent one thats it. Everything else is plain average. The breakfast was horrible. There is no spread at all. There are better hotels which offer for the same price with a better service.
