Hotel T.A.P. Gold Crest
Ranked #538 of 668 Hotels in Bengaluru
Reviewed July 11, 2009

Although the majority of the staff were very helpful and friendly, the hotel was in a poor state of repair. Paint peeling off of walls, damp patches on walls and ceilings.
The rooms are tiny.

Our rooms were filthy. There were strange stains/marks on the walls. The bedcovers were covered in dirty marks. The bathroom was disgusting with broken toilet seat, cracked sink, and general dirt from lack of cleaning.

We complained and managed to get a different room but this was as dirty if not dirtier than the original ones we had. We changed hotels after spending 1 hour (too long!) in Hotel TAP Goldcrest.

Rooms are dingy , smoky ...and stinky. Toilets and bathrooms are like public restrooms.

I saw good reviews of this hotel on makemytrip and was disappointed after seeing the hotel.

When we asked for non smoking room, they gave us smoking room with air frashner spryed. We ended up paying for 3 nights but did not stay there.


Also, the surrounding area is REALLY bad..not safe for women for sure.

This is in MAJESTIC area not near MG road.

you can book the hotel due to the rates offered. the rooms are neat and clean. the problem area is the room service. they are not so good and cooperative. they are very slow. I ordered a cup of tea which came after more than half hour. The quote breakfast as complimentary but after 11am it is charged. They served cold breakfast every time I ordered after 10am. The cups, plates, trays used to serve the guest are not up to the mark. Most of the times I found the cups, bowls and spoons dirty and had to ask them to change it. But even after changing you get a similar item to use. The hotel said they have multi cuisine. But there is hardly anything else cooked apart from the south indian dishes in their kitchen. most of the items offered in the menu are never served. If you are a chinese food lover then avoid eating it in this hotel or in the sourrounding locality. Prefer to visit Lalbagh or MG Road for Chinese food. I had to change three rooms on my first day itself of my 8 days stay. The first room was given to me in 4th floor. Every time it used to rain a bit the entire room gets full of water. I had to request them twice so that they can shift us to another room. Finally we got a better room in the same floor. Apart from this, the rooms are very neat and clean. they change the towels, bedsheets and pillow covers daily. The major drawback I found was the housekeeping entering the room when I was not around and or even in the hotel premises. They enter the room without your consent. If you are planning to stay in this hotel avoid bringing costly items or if you bring ensure they are locked properly as i used to do. Also, the hotel displays that they have swimming pool in the hotel but they do not have one.The surroding is not good. The hotel is situated in the middle of motor garages. Every day from early morning till late night you can hear the annoying noise from these garages. In the name of fitness center they offer just a threadmill and cycler.

This is actually a nice place to spend time in, it's quite well maintained. But the only fact is, it is not suitable for a group or an entire family stay, as the room sizes are bit small for comfortable accommodation. Other than this, the food tasted good, even the room service seemed active. I am happy with the overall experience, but again, I would recommend this exclusively to couples or solo travelers.
