Nice comfy 2-bed suite. It is like a European apartment hotel as you have a lounge and dining area with a kitchenette. Comfy beds, everything in the room worked (including hot water at all times of the day). Staff were exceptionally helpful. The pool is great with crystal - clear water, and is good for getting some lengths. Good gym with latest machines. Relatively nice, quiet part of town, very good for getting to the technology companies near the old airport. This is a new hotel (about a year old) so things work. I prefer its informal atmosphere to that of the Leela, which makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. I cleaned my teeth in the tap water and did not suffer any ill effects - there is a water purifier (aqua guard) to make yourself drinking water, and a nice big fridge. The spa was good.
Laundry expensive. The air conditioning was hard to control (sometimes it obeyed instructions, other times not). The electric safe came open by itself when we had a combination of power cuts (typical in Bangalore). There are annoying howling dogs nearby - (wish they were taken care of...) though this is standard for Bangalore.
