“Pathetic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This hotel is best avoided. It is a budget hotel but the service is below par. The food quality is not very good and the rooms are small. Even the service is slow. The location is good but there are better option beside this hotel. The next door Ashraya International is much better compared to this place. There is problem with the plumbing and bathrooms are also not very clean. Location is good, close to Cubbon Park. It is opposite the Police Commissioner's office on Infantry road in the heart of Bangalore. Final Verdict - Not Recommended. Please avoid.

I had visited Chevron Hotel Bangalore on a business trip. The hotel is loosing its service levels on day on day basis. The Rooms are not good and the sleep quality is just pathetic. Though the location is good, but else the staff are very rude and not friendly.
Would not recommend a stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Not recommended as a business Traveller

Stole laundry, which was the most expensive I had done ever in the whole world.
Stinking rooms, dirty sheets, bad service overall
And did not speak english!
Next to that they were very rude.
For a budget hotel this would be reasonable.
But after traveling all over India this was a TRUE dissapointment.

Chevron Orchid is located off the beaten track in a residential area. It was formerly the home of a high level politician and later turned into apartments and now ti's a hotel. Small, understated but good value for money. Our room was very large with marble floors, big bathroom, small kitchenette and great balcony overlooking the street. We had every comfort in the room however no WIFI.
They have a small cafe downstairs and great room service. Housekeeping was excellent. However since it's a bit off the beaten track it's far from the shops and restaurants. Being located in a residential area you'd think it would be quiet, but not so. The houses are pressed quite close to one another and you can hear all the goings on next door and across the street. The chit-chat in the parking lot travelled to the room and it was annoying when neighbours got up earlier than we wanted.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the main road are more noisy. Although there is new construction underway on all s...

We stayed there november 2012. The room was clean, although not decorated like on the website. It was okay, but too pricy for what you get. The service was poor, staff at the reception was distanced. The booked us out, because of water problems. The first hotel they offered was much further from the center, so we didn't agree. The second hotel (Infantry), was central located, but not the same star hotel as Chevron. Breakfast at Chevron was bad. Only Indian food, not well heated and not much choice. Our opinion: average hotel.

Looking at low value booking compared to their rate through make my trip, the suprvisors at receiption didnot behave well with us. They neglected us. They want guests who pay more.
Not for middle class, may be the recruited supervisors, boys etc are not upto the mark. They want tips.
Otherwise hotel is not bad. other things are medium category not upto the mark for their rate but OK for make my trip rate,
Next time if am given free to stay in this hotel, I shall not opt for. Only guests with no self respect can stay there. Or pay them more and buy . They prefer foreign guests.

Room Tip: If you want budget hotel, donot select this hotel. Their behaviour is rude and bad.
