“Decent place to stay in bangalore”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

A nice a well maintained property. Complete value for money. Ideal for business travellers.
Though they have limited rooms, better check in early and have room of your choice.

The only issue I faced is to locate the hotel. or to guide someone to find this hotel. I wonder why they didnt put a bigger Sign Board on the Lavelle Road to guide the visitors/guests. I spent over 10 mins searching for the location.

Room Tip: Queen Room and King Room is almost the same

Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to share your very positive experience with others. As a small family run operation, we always welcome the feedback. I am sorry to hear about the issues you faced in trying to find our property. We continue to try and increase our signage, but the home owners on the street have not allowed us to place a larger board on Lavelle Road at the entrance. We continue to work with them, however and do appreciate your feedback.

The only solution for the time being is In our booking confirmation we always encourage guests to print a copy of our location as we are located off a side street in the city center. As you stated, it can be difficult to locate initially, but it can also be a blessing in disguise as the hustle and bustle of the city center seems to be insulated. Again, thank you for the feedback. We hope that we can serve as your home away from home should you pass through Bangalore again!

Warmest Regards,

Krupa

Stayed here on work for around 2.5 weeks. Really nice place. very quiet. Spotless rooms. Very good service. Someone is always around to help. the hotel is at the dead end of a small street. Very quiet by any city standards. Breakfast was good too. Several restaurants in walking distance. No problems at all. Will defintely use next time we are in Bangalore.

Purple lotus is an excellent boutique suite located at lavelle road and have a best of neighborhood. It is surrounded by all the happening joints in Bangalore like UB city, Sunnys, Beire club, skkye lounge etc. The roof top gives a beautiful view of UB city. The rooms are extremely spacious with excellent decor. The service is top notch too. Its the best for travelers and for those who want to have a peaceful stay within city.

Room Tip: Queen room is spacious

I am a frequent visitor to Bangalore. I stayed in many hotels in that area and finally settled with Purple lotus. Once I found it, I am staying there for all of my visits. It is a very good deal for that price.

Rooms are nice and clean. It is quite amazing to stay at a serene location in the middle of crazy & hectic Bangalore city. It is walkable to quite a few restaurants and UB city as well.

A healthy breakfast is served along with fruits and fruit juices. Recent addition of Idly/vada is a definite plus. Nice restaurant, water fountain over a wall and small pond is cool.

We chose Purple Lotus because of the positive ratings on tripadvisor: it was a perfect choice! The hotel is centrally located, only a ten minure walk to Church Street, but 6th cross Lavelle Road is a quiet side road in a "residential" area. A "coffee day", some small shops and an excellent day spa are within walking distance as well.
The rooms are very spacious with kitchenette and free wifi; the decor is modern stylish. Even for western standards the rooms are exceptionally clean; the staff is very friendly and helpful.
When it comes to value for money, Purple Lotus gets top marks!
(If you take a taxi to the hotel, make sure to have a map or the hotel phone number with you so the driver can ask the hotel staff for directions; most drivers don't know this small hotel.)

my parents and I had the opportunity to re-visit Purple Lotus early June based on our wonderful experience in december last year.I've already given an indepth review last time, so just want to point out a few differences we noticed from our previous stay..

First the good point - the breakfast spread has expanded to include Indian food (idli, vada n sambar) which is a great and much appreciated improvement and they taste great too !! well done.

and now on to the "not so good" - it was quite difficult to get hot water in our shower, we had to make a few repeated requests to room service to set it right. while someone did promptly come, they could not fix the issue immediately (it was a little late in the night). we were eventually able to get hot water, but only after leaving the shower on for about 10-15 minutes !! this was recommended by the staff as well..although it worked, it seems like a mighty waste of water..not sure if this was just an issue in our room..

Apart from the above minor albeit significant flaw, our stay was as comfy and memorable as the last one and we certainly look forward to more stays there in future... :)
