“Good hotel, but staff pretty untrained”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Off late it's getting better but have had issues like the following:

(1) given stinking smoking room without asking
(2) hotel staff didn't have a clue on how to respond to customer claims
(3) Internet connection is erratic
(4) long Checkin and checkout time

But the hotel room is comfortable and good for business trips, restaurant is decent for dinner, but breakfast is average. Staff is getting better...

Stayed July 2012, traveled on business

stayed at this for for 2 nights...nice hotel within the city. The rooms were pretty nice and the breakfast is wonderful. They even make food items for you. I paid abt Rs 4000 per night for this room and it was well worth it.

This is my second time to stay at the BluPetal for 5-7 days each time. The location is great. Central to most things in Bangalore and plenty of dining options in the area. The staff is very responsive. Good breakfast spread as well.

There are only three things I would rate as a negative on the hotel.
1. As many others have mentioned previously, the internet is spotty at best. When you need it, it is not available. They give you an ID and password to use upon checkin for the wifi. I've found that id/password does not work. Then they give you a list of id/passwords to try. When asked how long they are good for, the answer is "some are 24 hours and some are one week" and you have no idea which to use. Once you get logged into the system, the internet will work on average 50% of the time.

2. While this may seem like a small thing, they only have 2 irons/ironing boards in the entire hotel. I requested to use one in the evening. At 6:45am the next morning, the front desk woke me up requesting the iron back. Come on guys, buy one for each room!

3. There are a ton of internal noises in the hotel which if you are a moderate to light sleeper, you will not enjoy. If you are street side, you constantly hear the chair and other movement from the restaurant on the upper floor. If you are on the backside, there is what sounds like a washing machine running/stopping from midnight-5am. My colleagues eventually moved to a different hotel due to the noise.

Overall, decent hotel in a good location.

I've been travelling to Bangalore for many years. Found this new hotel close to our office near the Forum Mall. This was my second stay...each one about 5-6 days. The hotel staff is very friendly. Food in the two restaurants is absolutely great...at par with the top restaurants.

I think they have a problem handling the non-business guests. My wife and daughter decided to join me for a weekend. I noticed a drop in room service immediately. The breakfast took more than an hour and 3 calls to deliver. The milk for my 4 years old daughter was always either too hot or plain cold, despite my trying to explain them every time that I want it just lukewarm.

I think the biggest issue is with their WiFi. When it worked, it worked well. But 30% of times, it just didn't work. This is really important for a business traveler. If I report it, somebody will come immediately and fix it. Eventually I stopped bothering and used my phone to connect to the internet.

Overall, I had a great experience. The location, service, people and everything else is great. Rooms are not too small and well done. I usually stay in a 5-star hotel at double or triple the rate, but I don't feel uncomfortable in their Duke rooms at all. I plan to stay here every time for my business trips to Bangalore - at least a week every month. For me, personally, the kinks can easily be ignored.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Dukes room, which I think is one category higher than their regular rooms, and a cat...

Stay at Bluepetal was just comfortable as my ofice was just a few meters away. Nothing to complain on the facilities except Wireless Internet, though free, was awfully slow.
Buffet breakfast was on the house, decent spread and tasty.
Front office service was good and responsive.

Being residents of Bangalore, we have not stayed at Blupetal. However, I have a word of appreciation for Blupetal and its restaurants Zheng (Chinese) and Sultans of Spice (Indian). Both the restaurants offer delicious fare. The dimsums made at Zheng are among my favourites. Their service is excellent.The interiors are fabulous and the hotel is neat and clean.
The celebrations organised at Blupetal on Valentine's Day and New Year's are great too. We were at both the parties in 2011 and had a great time and also some great food! I hope they maintain their high standards and soar to greater heights!

The BluPetal is a basic business hotel in a great areaof Koramangala. Their low prices makes it a great value except for two things: the faulty wireless access and towel racks in the showers that are over 6 feet high.

The wireless issue seems to be an going problem, as I noticed it was mentioned several times in the guest book, and eventually I left this hotel after a few days because they couldn't get it working consistently (down 80% of the time).

The windows open to an airshaft, which was good for light without street noise, but don't expect a view.

It's a small thing, but the towel racks in the shower are strangely mounted over six feet high, which meant that I couldn't reach them even by jumping. I ended up using hand towels.

The restaurant is ok (nothing special), but the breakfast was plentiful and had a decent variety, with eggs cooked to order.
