I was in Bangalore for an event. While I'm a frequent traveller, I failed to book my hotel for the period of my stay there. However, at the 11th hour I managed to get myself a room there. I was expecting a basic room with a decent bed & air conditioning so that I could spend a few nights there.... More

Staying at Empire in church street was a nice experience for us. We booked it through make my trip, we were a group of three friends planning a weekend at Bangalore. Location is the reason we went for this hotel. Main pubs and restaurants are from the walking distance and food served here is well known for late night lovers...... More

The hotel is old and its clearly visible from the cramped space you get in rooms, washrooms, reception, lift, lobbies. Breakfast is said to be complementary but is very restricted... Only fixed one veg dish vs one bread omlete is what you get to chose...and that too take them hours to deliver. Mentioned breakfast time 8-10am but I ordered at... More

The rooms of this hotel is not at all good. Toilet is terrible and does not feel like going to it. It is very uncleaned. I booked the rooms for 5 nights without knowing the room condition. As soon as I went to the room, my family was complaining that they cannot stay in a room in this condition. So... More

This is the third time I've stayed in this hotel and every time the experience is ... disappointing! The front desk staff really need to brush up on their communication skills - especially since this hotel attracts a large number of foreigners, albeit of the backpacking variety. They are also not very helpful when it comes to alternative modes of... More

The location is ideal- close to shopping, food, metro etc. However I expected much better service and room quality from Empire. There was no hot water in our room for 2 days out of 3. When we complained, we were asked to shift our room at 12 midnight or wait for the person who checked us in to get back... More

The experience was kind of okay. I ordered for veg and it was still good, but the non veg biryani that others ordered was pathetic. First of all, it did not look like more than a normal rice with a pinch of red colour. And even after having everyone started complaining about stomach being upset. Please be careful while ordering... More

We stayed only 1 night and wanted to stay in a cheaper and near the city center. Location is very good. Good Indian food. Very fast service. Rooms are OK. Very friendly front office staff. Overall we had good stay in Hotel Empire International. Mr. Syed (Front Office) is a nice person and helped us.

This hotel is located just off MG Road i.e. Church Street and located in a happening area as far as night life and eating joints are concern. The popular pubs like Social Offline and Tavern (Museum Hotel) are just next to this hotel and Hard Rock Cafe is approx 400 meters. Now coming to the hotel quality- the rooms are... More
