HHI Select Bengaluru
Ranked #306 of 670 Hotels in Bengaluru
Reviewed February 13, 2011

I recently traveled with 3 friends from the US to attend a wedding in Bangalore and we stayed at the Emlion. Overall there were some pros and cons.

Pros:
- Beds were very comfortable, same as what you'd get in a good hotel in the US
- The rooms were very well appointed, TV with wide range of channels and small fridge and kitchenette were nice.
- Breakfast in the top floor restaurant was good
- Having a Cafe Coffee Day on the first floor was a nice perk for a morning latte
- Staff was very helpful; a woman from the front desk even helped me drape my sari for the wedding which was a huge help!

Cons
- Our rooms were on the fifth floor so there was a lot of noise from the restaurant
- Went to the restaurant for dinner one night and had difficulty ordering as there didn't seem to be any strong English speakers present. Ended up with the wrong entree but was unable to convey the issue. I'd recommend just sticking to the standard Indian food (it was very good) and not trying to do the "Continental" menu
- Bathrooms were a little messy in terms of construction which was surprising given the niceness of the rooms. We also had issues getting hot water on a couple early mornings.
- Key cards had to be reactivated everyday - I've previously only stayed in worldwide hotel chains when in India so I'm not sure if that's typical or not but it's a little annoying.

Overall, I'd stay at the Hotel Emlion again - there's a few things they could improve but it was a comfortable and enjoyable stay in general.

First; rooms are exceptionally big and amenities inside the room and toilet are at par with best hotels. Rooms and lobbies are clean. Rate is surely a value for money. They offer complimentary gym facility, internet and brake fast. The brake fast is just a formality. You would not find spoons and forks, no glasses available to drink water including drinking water.
All these can be quickly fixed. The staff is untrained. Boys are nice but poor chaps have received no training. Very few of them are good at Hindi or English
If your B'luru visit is for couple of days; good place to stay at. Little away from main city activity. More than 2 days, pick your brake fast some where else. Its so boring and dull at Emlion.
