“Not a good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

I stayed at Safina hotel Bangalore in the firstr week of March 2012 for two nights.

+ves:
-Centrally located
-Close to commercial street market, MG Road, Brigade road etc.
-Room Size OK
-Siva Sagar Veg restaurant is nearby where you can have good vegetarian food
-There is a fast food eating joint in the same comlex of Safina Plaza where you can get mineral water and some quick food.

-ves

-In the name of buffet breakfast a limited quantity of idli OR toast and egg is served.
-Hotel has no kitchen. You have to take your lunch and dinner outside.
-Very small Bathroom...cramped.
-No wi fi or internet
-Very limited power points. Difficult to connect laptop/charge your mobiles.
-Room lighting insufficient
-Tea/Maker rusted
-Cleanliness is an issue


The booking was done through hotels.com. Hotel has issues with online booking sites. They accept the booking but ask guests to pay if the money is not received by them b4 you check out. In my case they agreed to let me go after i gave them a written undertaking . Be very careful with online booking sites for hotels in India.

Room Tip: You may stay here only if you have some work near commercial street.

I had to recently run a 2 day seminar in Bangalore and was wanting to look for a centrally accessible venue, came across Safina Hotel and booked it, not really knowing what to expect.
My bookings was handled by Aamir a Hotel Management graduate, it was a very good experience I found the service to be prompt and the facilities to be very good value for money. The place was busier over the weekend, with a few expats there too.
Aamir and the rest of the staff were prompt in their service and support and the delegates appreaciated the facilities too.
I ended up staying there for a couple of nights too and found the rooms to be nice and service to be very good too.

Room Tip: I think most of the rooms are on the main road, so expect some noise. Order teas and coffees with...

this is one of most horrible hotels i have ever stayed in. they have the most lecherous staff. if you are a single women / girl traveller think again about staying in this hotel.i stayed in this hotel and had a horrible experience. the staff is very annoying and disturbing. the reception staff is exceptionally stupid and rude. they dont undertsand the meaning of customer service. Just as i checked into the shady room they gave me. the ceiling fan lamp falls right next to me. i was saved by a few inches or i would have had a sore head. the room cleaning staff disturbed me constantly when i didnt even call or ask for anything. i cut my stay to one day..i moved to infantry hotel. the reception staff one mr srinivas was extremely rude to me on pretext of not understanding my intention of stay there. he questions me at 12 in the night as to what the hell i was doing in blr out with friends i just remembered my hostel days for once.
they should rename the hotel from safina hotel to safina lodge/hostel!! never going to stay here ever. also women/girls be very very careful if u staying there.

The hotel is quite empty, hence one can rely on it even if you do not have a prior booking a sin my case. The rooms are clean and well done. All basic amenities as desired from a budget hotel do exist. It is close to a bustling shopping street and hence one can spend time aorund the hotel. Not very far from MG road and Bridgade rood.

For my vacation I went to Bangalore India my family with my two teen and tween childs. At this hotel they could wake up at their own leisure to an amazing breakfast in bed. (If you eat lunch definitely get the fries). My son's laptop was put to full use with their free wifi and they my husband was able to do all his business at their nice business center. The prices were amazing. and it is interconnected with a shopping mall that you can fulfill your needs. There's this wonderful place called Commercial street just two minutes a way where you can but whatever you need. I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends. Since this was my first time in India I would definitely recommend this place

We traveled to Bangalore for my work. Safina Plaza was booked by my Company's travel desk. We were pretty happy as the location of hotel was very close to MG road /Brigade Road ( Hot destination of Bangalore). The location of hotel was also close to the office.

The moment we visited the Hotel , It was not a very pleasent experience. As the Hotel looked ordinary from the first impression itself. Our stay there was for 6 days, But every day we had some issue with the service. there was no in room service . The laundry guy took 2 days to get the cloths back and the bill settlement was also a problem there.

So other than the location of this Hotel, there is nothing good here.. I won't suggest this hotel to anyone.
