We stayed 3 days with family recently. Room was nice. Excellent housekeeping. good hospitality Very good Breakfast and dinner. Overall excellent hotel for stay. Hope to visit again. One catch is it is not like other gateway hotel where they debit your card at the time of booking. You have to pay here at the time of check out.

Stayed here for couple of nights this weekend. This is located in the heart of mangalore and easy to get around or drive out to nearby places.

A business hotel with good rooms, we had a great bathroom. The food in the Indian restaurant was ok nothing special. We stayed one night on our way to Coorg. We visited the Shiva temple and the Mangala Temple both of which are worth visiting. Very old and interesting.

I have this mental block against those who charge for wifi. They could as well charge for electricity and water. The justification from front desk was that wifi is "outsourced". The hotel is located in Bunder, the old quarters. If you relish ethnic food, a couple of restaurants are nearby. Proximity to sea doesn't mean you can swim, it is... More

The hotel is a very comfortable one and has all the basic amenities but it falls short of the Taj-Gateway brand. The decor is dated and the rooms and bathrooms give that spent feeling. The alleyways also are now old and in need of an overhaul. The hotel has to upgrade in terms of rooms as well as thought processes... More

The package offer is terrific. They even extended the stay by a few hours so that my In Laws could rest a little longer. They took the Dinner offer (free) as they were traveling during the day to the Mookambika Temple at Kollur. Staff is very helpful.

I opted for this hotel during my recent visit to Mangalore going by the "Taj-Gateway" brand name.But my experience was disappointing. The location is bad, with the neighbourhood emiting foul(fish?) smell.The front office personnel were casual and more interested in talking to their friends than attending to the guests.Overall ambience of the hotel was just average. Room, though fairly spacious,... More

Its an excellent hotel maintained by gateway hotels. The rooms are a bit old but nicely maintained. The breakfast is excellent. The location may be slightly disappointing but I found it not far from the city.
