This has to be in our top 10 most memorable hotel stays. What a spectacular property and the hotel grounds of Westend is like an oasis of tranquility. The rooms are beautifully spaced and spread out on their extensive gardens and it's a delight to explore their well maintained lawns with bunnies and geese scurrying around them. The people under...

Stayed here for 2-nights on a business trip. Service is great, as expected at a Taj property. On arrival we were given fresh wash clothes and lime water, very refreshing. The hotel is what I would call a "classic". Had that old regal feel. The rooms are very large and bathrooms are a tad small, like many older properties. And... More

For my final night in Bengaluru, I checked into the legendary Taj West End and entered a world of refined luxury and gracious staff at every turn. I joined a history and garden tour exploring the vast gardens, enjoyed a superb Indian meal and had breakfast under an ancient rain tree. Exceptional was that I had mentioned on arrival that... More

Overall a very nice property. The girl at the reception at check in was a bit frosty and after a long drive from Chennai - did not appreciate it. From that point on the service was exemplary. The restaurants were marvellous. Very beautifully maintained grounds. A bit of paradise in the midst of chaotic Bangalore. Well shielded from the surrounding... More

Probably the oldest hotel in Bangalore that I believe started out as a guest house just after WW2. I got an upgrade to a room that was so huge I could easily jog around it. Nice attention to detail, intelligent people, great service and quite simply a great place to stay in one of my favourite cities when enjoying the... More

I have been to the hotel for a conference and I really loved the food and variety of dishes on their buffet spread. Despite being in the heart of the city, the hotel has kept its campus green, serene and as close to nature as possible. You can actually see rabbits and turkeys strolling around at ease at the hotel
