“The worst hotel experience i ever had”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

Right from the beginning everything was wrong.We checked in at around 5 30 am.The shutter was closed at that time and we had to get in thru a dirty backdoor.This happened in a hotel which says "24 hr checkin/out"!! We took the " suite" room which was around 2000 per day.It had a complimentary breakfast included,which never came on time. We had to wait till 11 am to get the breakfast( after a million phonecalls to the "room service".About the food, even dogs could get decent food than that.They dont have an inhouse restaurant.But they've put this menu of an outside restaurant in our room! So that we can order food from outside.We decided to order food from outside one night. I checked the prices at the menu,ordered the food.They went out,bought the food and charged a lot more than mentioned in the menu.When asked they simply said they had to buy it from another hotel!! At the end,we had our flight at 3 am. So informed the reception that we will be checking out at 1 30 am. I called the reception again at 1 am,some guy picked up. I told him to make the bills ready. When i finally got down, the guy is still sleeping.Had to wait 15 minutes for him to wake up finally!. Please guys, dont ever choose this place to stay..it will definitely ruin your vacation. Trust Me!! The room wasnt neat either!!!

For RS. 950plus tax with free breakfast for a couple is reasonable in the main city walkable from bus stand and railway staton. away from the noise and bustle .plenty of restaurants on the main road. plent of tourist taxis also available. avoid tourist vehicle from the hotel as I feel the charges are exorbitant. staff is ok if you keep tipping them regularly. rooms are cool enough without ac.keep remiding them to clean rooms at least three tmes

I would suggest this hotel outright to anyone visiting Bangalore on business and want to stay near the railway station or Bus Station. The hotel is situated in Gandhi nagar a supposed to be crowded place. But the beuty of this hotel is that it is in a street which is very calm and quite, but very near to a variety of restaurents etc. The hotel rooms are clean and well amintained and so are the bathrooms. Though they didnt have a in house restaurent, they serve breakfast complimentary ( the only negative thing as the breakfast just sucks). But they are able to get the food of our choice from near by restaurents. Though it would be a better choice if we can go out for food as the choices are much and we can select and try. Otherwise the room service is quite good and so is the front office.

I remember this was the first hotel where i stayed when i came newly in bangalore . We got in this hotel as we guys were roaming ariund and found the outersketch quite good . We were 4 and we took 2 rooms . The management was quite nice and room service was more than average . However the room was quite well maintained . I got the room in the ground floor , the corner one from where i was able view the entire market . Food was quite good and we got almost everything what we were looking for . We stayed there for 3 nights and 4 days till we got a nice flat to stay !!! All i can say is Golden Residency is a decent place to stay , however the area nearby would be bit crowded (market kinda ) . I will give 2 out of 5 to this .

Stayed April 2007, traveled with friends

We had visited this hotel somewhere in July , when my finacee had come from his home town to meet me. It was a nice place to be. We had a nice time here as the service was really good and the room was quite nice. The food quality was good too. You can definiteluy go there if you have a group of friends as this is located in the centre of Bangalore

i booked the hotel thru a website.check in was smooth,room was small but was very nice and well decorated.close to the market,bus stand and city railway station.i stayed for 3 nights but was happy with what i got for the money i spent.it was a value for money,well maintained hotel.breakfast was complimentary and was served hot in the room.no item was repeated in my 3 days stay.though they dont have their own restaurant/

i will definately recommend this hotel to others.

some minor problems which others may face is that no natural light was coming in the room.travel desk was not so good.i paid more as compare to other travel operators for local sight seeing but many places were not covered.some may find it difficult to get the hotel.
