Airport Hotel. Now you can step off a plane at the badly located Bangalore International Airport and find a good hotel within 10 minutes drive. Opened in Jan 2012 so lots of teething troubles. The hotel was very quiet with only a few guests. Check in was efficient. Rooms were clean. Extra child bed was a little uncomfortable and was charged (not all hotels are so mean). Service was generally slow. The hotel is clearly aiming for 5 star service but this is no chain and the experience is probably not available. They were all really nice people but (for example) express checkout meant doing the same thing fast rather than a different process allowing me to walk straight out at 5am. The restaurant was a mixed bag. The buffet was all Indian food (personally I am all for that but many foreigners would not agree) and the food itself was OK. The best part was the freshly cooked chiken Tikka Starter - if they had cooked it all freshly for me I suspect the chef had the skill to make it all well but buffets always breed mediocre food. The international food was average I am told (it looked awful to me) but most of what was on the menu was not available - what Basil Fawlty would have called "off". But some hotel have a habit of being impressive without getting it all right and this was one of those. A little attention to detail and experience and this could be a really really excellent hotel. Using this as a stopover hotel is a no brainer.
