I stayed at the hotel for the first time in 2012. This Autumn I went back and was equally pleased with the service. Location is just perfect - near Shivaji Bus Terminus, short walk away from MG Road and - what is most important for a cricket fan - the Chinnaswamy stadium. Rooms are comfortable and clean with decent bathrooms with hot water. Room service and staff friendly and helpfull. Also a good and opened till very late restaurant located on the ground floor is a great asset.

Over all is really good experience! But for some reason there was a confusion on the extension of one more day but the manager was understand his mistake and did properly at the time of billing.

Room service is really great, I feel I am in my house. Mr. Ramesh (Room service guy) was really great and I really appreciate his valuable service!

They provided the Wifi free of cost! and the food cost is really too costly based on my experience. Over all is really good. I will use them again!

Room Tip: I never see a difference for both Ac and Non AC.

We booked through Make my trip. We stayed for one day. Our check in delayed to midnight due to Mysore 'Jambo Savari'. Each time we called the reception the response was very good. Room service & staff behavior was good. Those who look for budget accommodation at central location this hotel is a good choice. M.G. road, Church Street and Brigade Road for shopping within 10 minutes walk.

Pros:
- We booked the hotel via Makemytrip after reading the reviews. So as the review, the hotel quality is good for the cost and the location.
- Heart of the city, full bonus for the location. Close to MG Road, Shivaji Nagar bus terminal, COmmericial Street for shopping etc...
- Lot of choices for Non Vegetarian but seems excellent as you find a huge crowd. Restaurant is open till late night may be 2AM.
- Rooms are clean to desired level.
Cons
- Deluxe and Standard, there are no difference.
- The AC room offered had a WIndows AC which had no remote. So once On one cannot control the temperature of AC. The AC is set to very low, so you must manually get up switch off power and on as and when the cooling is required. Checked with Service guy he says no Remote.
- Rooms are nice, the service guys / Room Service guys makes a lot a of noise even during night.
- As the restaurant is open late, lot of rush with lot of noise one can hear. If you are a person who need complete calmness for sleep then its going to be tough.
- No Hot water to drink will be provided, though Bangalore is a cool place. I dont think we can buy Hot Water :)

General:
- Please confirm room by sending email to the hotel. Also call and confirm you hotel as they have multiple hotels nearby.

Room Tip: Please ask for top floor rooms to avoid any noise.

The food was certainly overpriced but the hotel is overall good. Clean rooms & bathrooms. Nice location. The hotel staff was also very helpful.Just off the main road so no problem in getting means of transportation.
