“Ideal property for business meeting & conferences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I have organized number of training programs at Hotel Iris. In the beginning, service was not so encouraging. Good part is, staffs over there take your feedback so positively and pull genuine efforts to meet your expectation. So far, I have organized 10 to 15 training programs in last 1.5 years. In particular, my appreciation go to Mr. Kusum & Mr. Muniyappa who are good at customer service. Great place... Great value for money..
Positives : Ambience, Affordability, Customer Service, Great Food
Improvement Area : Less Proactiveness

Room Tip: I always prefer the Hall which is in the 1st Floor (Silica Hall)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Stayed at the Iris for 2 weeks in november 2012 as one in a group of 8 people. All of us agree it was a great experience. The service was excellent - from reception and travel desk to house keeping and business centre. All were very friendly and eager to help. I had cars arranged and laundry done several times at good value and hastle free.

Breakfast can be seen as strange through European eyes - feels more like lunch, but you can always take fruit yoghurt, coffee, toast, scrambled eggs, croissant and a pancake (dosa). So it is not a problem. I only tried the restaurant a couple of times. It is a little pricey compared to other restaurants in the area, but still really cheap by european standards. Good food but not mind blowing. Pretty Good pizza margeritha if you are up for that.

Location is as good as it gets. Right in the middle of things, but still peaceful and quiet at night.

Rooms, as well as the whole hotel, were spotlessly clean. The rooftop pool is not huge, but big enough for a swim. What might seem odd för europeans is that it is not possible to get a cold beer or a glass of wine. Not even in the restaurant. The hotel is completely alcohol free. Not unusual in India i understand. But there is a mini bar in the room that you can put some beers in. Just pick em up at Sams Wine Centre 100 m to the left on Residency Rd :D

Overall the hotel was fantastic. I will definitely come back.

Leisure trips always demands comfortable stay and this is one such hotel which can satisfy you in all respects be it the service, hotel location, neatness, classic rooms, quality food etc. This is my second visit to the hotel and without any hesitation suggest to stay at Hotel Iris. The main advantage is its location as it is at the heart of the city. All good eateries, prominent shopping centres are just a few walk away.The food was heavenly and the rooms were extremely comfortable and well-stocked with everything needed to feel like one is at home. I would definitely stay here again if I ever visit Bangalore again.

We stayed here during the Carlos Santana concert. A nice business hotel located in Brigade road. Very well maintained rooms accompanied with almost every basic requirement. I would have easily give this one a 5 star except that the biggest disappointment was that as a business hotel you cannot afford to not have a modest WiFi connection. This was a serious disappointment. Now for the most part we could not connect to the WiFi and someone form the staff had to physically come to your room and get you connected, not an ideal situation is it. The breakfast was well spread and i must extend credit for the service during breakfast. All in a all, definitely recommended but business guests, i suggest you take this up with the management.

Room Tip: WiFi connection is a serious issue. Those traveling on business or even otherwise, you better have y...

It is indeed so reassuring to see that guests notice all the efforts that go into providing a great hospitality experience to our guests. We sincerely appreciate your observations on the quality and efficiency that you experienced at the hotel.

I am a little disheartened to learn about your experience with the wi fi services at the hotel.There was a technical problem and the issue has been certainly attended to ..

I was to set up my office in Bangalore. Since i was looking out for office in the City center, I also wanted to stay in and around the city center. I found Iris Hotel - . The rooms are perfect for a Business Traveler. I also found their Business Center very handy. The Reception were perfect in handling my messages. I also used their Board Room for my meetings. The Banquets staff are very courteous and helpful.

I have now established my office in M G Road, I still accommodate all my guests at Iris Hotel only.

My stay at Bangalore was at the best hotel but nothing else....
I booked the hotel reffered by my friend who stayed there on his official visit from Vizag Steel.
I found the hotel in the same way as he described and briefed.....
The staff are very good and helpful , ready for the extra mile effort with a smile....
Excellent location for hotel in the Brigade Road , Mg Road for people who come bangalore for the first time ...
i enjoyed my stay with a wide spread of buffet breakfast, well maintained rooms and beautiful swimming pool.Sorry could not use the spa facility as i was short of time.
Their Travel Charges are very decent with good and reliable driver as compared to other car rental providers.
Overall a Good Hotel to stay with................................

Room Tip: Book for the purple ribbon rooms .....located on the 4th floor with a good view.
