This hotel is a favorite among the big tech companies and corporations in the area, and it earns their praises. I booked a room at a very good price, but when I arrived found that the rooms were on the second floor, and as a historical property there were no elevators. They instead upgraded us to a suite - The... More

You will not feel that you are staying in the Oldest running hotel of India. It's a true blend of architecture from colonial India and modern amenities. Though on a short business trip, I can undoubtedly say that this is the best property you can stay in Bengaluru. Central location, in middle of all city madness you still get serene... More

The Taj West End is a great hotel destination if you're interested in colonial Indian culture and service. Recommended for the spacious and clean rooms and the service. The hotel grounds and the buildings feature a garden feel and look as well as a jungle flavor. Dense rain forest vegetation surrounds as well as tropical bird calls.

It is one of the best hotels I have stayed. The ambiance of the place, both inside the hotel and outside, is serene. The room, in which I stayed, was very very spacious. But the highlight of my trip this time was the friendly and courteous nature of the staff. The food was declicious.
