Not a very good experience staying at the Citadel. It was a brief stay of 1 day.
I had checked in early morning at around 5.30. Found the room to be good and was really anticipating a good enjoyable experience. However the thought vanished as soon as I saw the bathroom. It was very small and was not at all looking luxurious.
The breakfast was good and tasteful, however the spread could have been more.
The real worst point was the courtesy. The hotel has a 24 hour check out time. Since I had checked in at 5.30 AM, I had requested for an extention of 2 hrs for check out i.e 7.30 AM, but the hotel staff didnt allow that and said that any stay further than 6-6.15 would attract the charges for the next day too. So left with no option, i checked out at 6 AM in the morning and waited in the Hotel lobby till 7.30-8 AM till my colleague came to pick me up.
I am planning not to stay there on my next visits.

Well, the hotel can be termed as a good hotel on absolute scale but will need to call it an average hotel only when compared to other hotels in the city specially in the gandhinagar, race course road, Anand Rao Circle area. The food quality should be enhanced slightly, and the staff behaviour can also be upgraded a notch.

Otherwise an excellent hotel to be in with great location, room quality, sleep quality advantage.

An excellent hotel to spend a few days. We booked in at The Citadel for three days while in Bangalore. A really pleasant experience - clean, neat and tidy. I would say that the 3 star rating is under rated. Compares well with Holiday Inn / Southern Sun in South Africa. Mr Chandra the restaurant manager was really a great "Host". The dinner for Rs 300 was excellent - a large spread and the food was tasty. We had dinner at the hotel for the three days spent there ( mid January 2012).
I found the location ideal as it seems to be centrally situated.
The Gandhi Meditation Room was next door to our room - went well with us as we conducted our morning prayer there. Pools was clean and tidy. Highly recommended and I will not hesitate to stay @ The Citadel if I ever go to Bangalore again.
Only the reception need to understand what the meaning of "5 minutes" is - as 5 minute can mean 10 / 15 / 20 ....
Citadel keep up the good work and excellent service.

The Citadel is a very nice hotel with international standards. Very clean, beds are extremely comfortable with nice white fluffy down comforter and plenty of pillows. King beds are very spacious. The suites have luxury bathtubs! Staff is very courteous and helpful. Free continental breakfast is nice- restaurant has nice selection and relaxing ambience at a reasonable price. Have stayed here on several occasions and would recommend it for anyone who needs to stay in this area of Bangalore who is looking for international quality at a reasonable price.

Citadel Hotel is situated in Anandrao circle, Bangalore. The hotel is 1 km away from Bangalore Central Railway station and KSRTC busstand. Though it is located in a very busy place but once you enter the hotel, there is absolute tranquility,staff members are very helpful. The most impressive part which I liked about the hotel is its Restaurant. The restaurant is situated in the 2nd floor and the ambiance is mindblowing. They offer great buffet lunch for just 250 rupees. I would love to visit this hotel again. Go for it.

The might do fall from grace. Similar is a story here.
A hotel with great prospects... hidden away entrance in a crowded section of the city but a shabby view of the outside

What i loved was the food quality - good stuff.
