This hotel is situated at Bellandur on Sarjapur road at Bangalore. So many business parks are nearby. New hotel, room was also very good. Food was excellent at Square. Flyover at front of this hotel destroys its beauty.

Novotel is an excellent business hotel if your primary business is in the outer ring road area. It is well-located right between Sarjapur and Marathalli, very close to large corporate offices. Access to the hotel is not very smooth right now because of construction activity in the vicinity.

I like the clean, modern decor in the rooms but some may find it sterile. Rooms are large and well-equipped, and bathrooms are designed for quick in-and-out showers. Overall the focus is on efficiency rather than luxury, exactly as it should be in a business hotel.

My only grouse with the restaurant are the dining options. The main restaurant on the ground floor has no identity - it serves a mish-mash of mediocre food from various parts of the world. I don't remember a single exceptional dish from several breakfasts and a dinner I have had at the restaurant. The bar on the ground floor and the pool-side restaurant are too intimate - great for a date night but almost comically out of place in a business hotel. There is no option for a high-quality meal in a professional setting that doesn't feel like you are coming on to a client.

Apart from this, a great hotel!

The Hotel is new so that is why it was clean and so far well kept, All other services on the surface are looking ok but then USE someting like the Hotel CAR with a Novotel and Ibis sticker on it and you will find out how utterly frustrating this is, the drive had no idea where to go even though the concierge and i spent over 40 minutes searching and printing maps and exact locations of my meetings. I missed one meeting and was late for all of the rest.
The Hotel prices are 700 INR cheeper than the Sofitel Mumbai!!!!!!!!! so why stay at the Novotel for those prices??? i was told it was the city tax, thats funny as i was talking about the rate before tax, once you put the tax on the price for the Novotal is 680 INR cheaper than the Sofitel & at the sofitel the drivers never ever get lost!
Very over priced and too far from the city and the new Airport.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying with us at the Novotel Bengaluru Techpark and thank you for your feedback.

Based on your comment on the car experience, i am extremely sorry that you missed an important meeting owing to the drivers lack of road direction sense. About the prices for car rentals, our rates are pretty much similar to that any hotel in the vicinity and on the contrary maybe slightly cheaper. However, based on your comment, i shall once agin look into our car pricing.

Its comments such as these that help us identify our follies us and help us improve our services.

Once again thank you and look forward to your next visit to the hotel while in Bangalore.

I stayed in this property for the first time in December 2012. I was there on business and was staying on the concierge level for 5 nights. Overall, the rooms are very nice (even if a bit small), and the staff was fantastic (as at most Indian hotels I have visited, culturally driven I think), and went out of their way to help. From the nice complimentary breakfast in the Executive Lounge to the evening drinks and a very nice espresso machine. The young man (Pulash was his name, I believe) in the executive lounge was enthusiastic and always willing to help get coffee, carry food to the room or have scrambled eggs whipped up in the kitchen and delivered to the floor, with a great attitude.

Like most things in life, the little things this property did is what made it stand out. The best example from this trip was their recognition of my birthday. I was obviously traveling on business and away from family, so the hotel must have noted my birth date from the passport and on that day they delivered a complimentary custom birthday cake to my room. The cake was very good, but the thought was even more appreciated.

I am Elite member at Marriott and Gold member at Hyatt, and have never had this experience before. I have no status at all at Novotel/Accor, but this hotel did not let that stop them from providing exceptional service. I highly recommend this property if you are visiting this part of Bangalore.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room. It gets you away from the courtyard view, where you can kind of look into...

Stayed at the Novotel in Bangalore/Bengaluru for 3 days in early December 2012. This was my first stay in Bangalore, and I was pleasantly surprised. Car was waiting for us at the ariport, jsut as planned, and reception staff got us checked in quickly. They arranged cars/drivers for us as needed. The Novotel and the IBIS are co-located, with different entrances/lobbies and separate restaurants. Rooms are not huge, but big enough. (the desk chairs are a little funky as others have mentioend, but felt comforable to me. Desk space is small, but I found it to be sufficient for working on my laptop. Bed and linens were comfortable, AC worked great/quietly. Very clean hotel/rooms. They supplied 2 complimentary bottles of water everyday. Bathroom shower is very roomy, with 2 shower heads. Plenty of universal AC plugs in the room, and wireless internet worked fine. A few american/english TV channels, including HBO, but no guide, so you have to hunt through the channels to find what you want. Nice pool and gym, pool was not busy, and had lounge chairs for catching some rays. Novotel Restaurant was very good, you can order off a menu or select the very nice buffet. Menu prices were reasonable, but the buffets were very high priced (dinner buffet = $40 amercian). Breakfast buffet was included with my room rate, and was fantastic. The hotel is located across the street from Intel and some other hi-tech companies, making it easy to walk to work. Did go the the Ibis buffet for lunch one day, service was more over ther top at the Novotel, but the IBIS had almost the same foods, and at 1/4 of the cost(~$10 american). Novotel buffet did have slightly more selections, and better deserts, but probably not worth the difference in money. Next time I'm in Bangalore, I will definately stay at the Novotel again.

Room Tip: Try to book one of the premium rooms on the higher floors. But I didn't see any of the other roo...
