We are an indian-german family and we stayed in Purple Lotus for three weeks in October 2014. Our daughter worked in a social project during that time. As we shared one large room with three persons, we were very thankful that this wonderful hotel has many possibilities to retire. We could spend some time at the top of the hotel... More

The Purple Lotus is a real find (pun intended) in the heart of Bangalore, off Lavelle Road. The room is hardly a room - it's a mini apartment, with beautiful in situ floors and tons of space. The wifi worked efficiently without a glitch. The breakfast area is a treat, the pool and high stone wall gives a sense of... More

I stayed here for about two weeks whilst on a business trip to Bangalore. The room rates here are cheap compared to the bigger brand names in the same neighborhood. Like what a lot of people have previously commented on, this could be a little hard to find initially as it is tucked at the dead end of a small... More

Its a very small property, tucked away in a small lane off MG Road. I had difficulty in locating. Rooms are okay, but not worth for the price they charge. Last night I came at 9 pm and the hotel was deserted...even the reception has only 1 bulb..Doesn't feel like hotel...It seems more like a B&B joint in Europe/US. Breakfast... More

I had the pleasure of staying here and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Beautiful decor. Rooms were perfect. clean and comfortable. Everything as desired. Can't fault this hotel at all. The location was terrific close to all major hangouts. And great staff. Excellent service. Cud not have asked for more. I'd love to go back and highly recommend this hotel.

My first stay here was good. Made the mistake of coming back. For some godforsaken reason the hot water valves are shut every night. One has to complain everytime for hot water and wait for atleast half hour before the new staff figures things out.Banging doors, noises from the next door construction site keep you up the whole night.

I stood here for 2 nights and can say it is absolutely brilliant. Not many guests, the staff takes great care, help where ever you need help and are really friendly. The rooms are huge, separate bathroom, wifi (working!!) aircon+fan. At these rates simply unbeatable! I 100% recommend this place.

Cute hotel that feels more like having your own apartment in Bangalore. Staff is very nice and the setting is very serene. A little difficult for taxi drivers to find but my favorite place to stay in Bangalore!
