This place is a mix of Convenience, Comfort and Luxury. This is my second stay in this place. Right in the middle of Bangalore City, yet kept away from all the madness. Quite convenient when you have work within the city limits. The rooms are large and reasonably well kept. The interiors could be better but still this hotel has... More

First, the hotel is ideally located in the heart of the city. The room was excellent especially so since I got an upgrade. The room was kept ready and very clean, though I would prefer a better quality wood work. I was there to celebrate my wedding anniversary and the hotel already knew of it. The entire heads of different... More

Stayed there twice in past 1 month, both on weekends. They have special weekend prices. Staff is courteous. But, the hotel lacks the feel of staying in a 5 star as claimed. Unresponsive bell desk. Some of the reception staff lacks to give the feel of hospitality expected in a 5 star. Good kitchen (room service as well as restaurant).... More

Stayed here with colleagues on a business trip during November 2014. The hotel offered excellent value for money with a package and the food at Karavalli was simply superb! Will definitely go back, what with the lovely location.

Stayed here for 3 weeks on a work trip. The front of house staff were friendly and keen to see if there was anything they could do to improve your stay. Food and housekeeping were impeccable. Gym was ok though I didn't make use of the pool and location seemed pretty central.

Stayed last weekend at the gateway hotel. As the title suggests, it could have been better. The gateway properties seem to be getting step motherly treatment & as a Taj inner circle member could appreciate the deficiencies. 1. My inner circle membership was not recognised, inspite of indicating the same at the time of booking. 2. No information was available... More
