The hotel is right on residency road, the heart of Bangalore. The best shopping areas and plenty of gardens with in 5 min drive. The rooms are well furnished and staff are very courteous, typical TAJ style. The best thing about this hotel is the restaurant.

We arrived here approx. 7am looking and feeling rather dishevelled after an overnight train journey from Madurai so we greatly appreciated being able to check in immediately to our room, number 227. As you'd expect of a Gateway hotel the room was spotlessly clean and well maintained with a luxuriously comfortable king sized bed, heaven especially after our bunks on... More

Lovely hotel in the midst of Bangalore (or Bengaluru as it is called now). A good mid-range business hotel in a wonderful location. The food options are great especially their wonderful health options for breakfast. And the Karavalli restaurant still continues it tradition of bringing very authentic south indian non-vegetarian fare. The service standards are good. Certainly needs a dash... More

This is a small hotel and seemingly quite old. Service is good and so is the food. However, it lacks the Taj Finesse! The china-ware and bathroom fittings are not even 3-star standard. In general, no complaints but this hotel does need a serious refurbishing.

Central, reasonable and just right for business travelers, who typically is not looking for luxury. The deluxe room I stayed in was comfortable and clean. Quite spacious in fact, allowing for a large writing table and lounge chair with a foot raiser apart from a king sized bed. The staff is pleasant and eager to help. The gym is quite... More

This hotel is in a good area for tourists. Lots of shopping nearby, though getting to it through the crowds is not pleasant. Good sized rooms, clean, and helpful staff. Breakfast is good and plenty from which to choose. Only problem for me was the security. You feel like you must be entering a government building when you have to... More
