“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

The hotel's located very close to MG road, Brigade road, Cubbon road, and metro station. Rooms are quite clean, decently sized to fit in an extra person, the room service is a little slow. We had to make 3 calls for a bottle of waterBathrooms are clean. Lots of convenience stores located close by.

If you are used to the absolutely attractive promotional hotel rates in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand for Asia, India is one country that you practically have to increase your budget to as much as 40% in order to get to the quality that you are used to in the earlier mentioned countries. And if your budget doesn’t allow for that increase, then it will be a case of searching for a ‘needle-in-a-haystack’.

Here are my Pros & Cons for staying at the Infantry Hotel Bangalore:

PROS:
Room (#117): Very large and spacious.
Bed (King): Cleans sheets and comfortable mattress.
Air-Conditioning: Good (no mosquitoes).
Location: Central and within tolerable walking distance to MG Road.
Buffet breakfast: Acceptable combination of Indian and Continental spread. It was definitely nice to find a muffin being offered although the Continental selection is minimal.
Early Check-In: They were kind enough to let me check-in at 09.30am.

CONS:
Rate: Overpriced when compared to what Ginger Hotels can offer.
Lifts: Ancient (at least 30 years old). The carpet on the lift is extremely dirty and visibly worn out.
Bathroom: Ancient (at least 30 years old). Definitely not spotlessly clean and terribly in need of major renovation. Also, no Bath Mat is provided and a slip on a wet floor can be fatal.
WiFi: Chargeable when compared to Ginger Hotels.

Would I return to the Infantry Hotel? No. I’ll search for other properties.

Room Tip: Get a room on the higher floor.

Although the room rates are quite low and it is situated in heart of the city close to MG Road however it is a strictly ok hotel. The reasturent is nothing much to write about. Stay in it if you must for a cheap bargain.

Finding the location of the hotel was a bit difficult but once reached I was happy that I had made a good choice from makemytrip offer to choose the hotel at a decent rate.
Delux Room a little small but manageable. What was not suiting the ambiance was the TV- they should immediately change it to LCD to be called a 3-star. Bathroom, Cleanliness everything was just perfect in that price.
Since the hotel is located a little bit inside away from the road there is no view from the hotel. There is no refrigerator in the room which is a desired one for the 3-star hotel. After going thru their site I found that they offer fruit basket- but when I asked for it they denied that but latter eventually had again given one. But the next day they told it is only applicable for one day.
Overall I am happy with the service and the room and the breakfast for the price in which I got it.

Room Tip: Go for higher floor
