“My favourite hotel in India”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

I have done a lot of business in India and this is my favourite hotel. Pure luxury where in some of the rooms you even get your own butler. Multiple restaurants, with the best being the Michelin quality Indian. And in the heart of Bangalore. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, behind the desk, at the room, or in the business centre. Even has a great bar.

Room Tip: The ones in the gardens are more peaceful but have more mosquitoes to dodge!

Wonderful hotel in colonial style in lush gardens. Rooms and restaurants are all great, but what is the one distinctive difference of the Taj West End to other top hotels is its incredible service level and the attention the staff pays to clients. Throughout the ranks, I have never experienced better service.

By a mile the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at! In the morning a man playing pipes sits in the hall way of this 1 level hotel and plays music that just relax's you totally! Breakfast is beautiful and my room was incredible, a four poster bed with lots of fresh cut flowers. Honestly couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay on my tour of the city!

Room Tip: I suspect all the rooms are beautiful, however I think the cottages in the gardens have the edge.

Wonderful service..efficient housekeeping,prompt bellboy and polite butler.Friendly and attentive poolside lifeguards. Very clean rooms.Lovely property.

Only irritants were-1. the Cable T.V. in the room...difficult to navigate through the programmes without set top boxes which are mandatory in metropolitans like Delhi and Madras.

2. The buffet ,though vast and eye catching,fell flat...only few of the dishes [20%] in both the breakfast and the lunch buffet were exceptional ..the rest were just bland..everything looked good,but didn't deliver on the taste..

The chef and the wait staff,were all polite.

The Valet [ who took our car ]was a bit of a shark for tips..he seemed disappointed that the polite bellboy who carried our bags up to our room on arrival and then later lugged them down from the first floor when we were leaving and loaded them into our car got a bigger tip than him...all the valet did was to drive the car down and hold the door open !

Overall, a good experience thanks to the lovely property and the nice staff/lifeguards by the poolside..our butler..housekeeping and the elderly gentlemen waiters.

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from the ballroom ,for a quiet time.

Since 1984 the hotel has been managed by the Indian Hotels Company Limited. Exuding magnificence and history from every corner, today this hotel speaks to all travelers staying within its walls. The Taj West End is also home to some of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants and award winning restaurants, offering unique and exquisite cuisines. Each outlet; Mynt, Blue Ginger Masala Klub and Blue Bar will showcase their finest offerings, sure to enchant, impress and dazzle guests. The hotel has created several Exclusive and Unique Experiences for its guests all through the year, pampering and delighting them in true Taj West End style. Whether one opts for a Breakfast under The Raintree, Dinner at the Paradise Table at Blue Ginger or under the stars at Masala Klub, guests will surely make memories that last them a lifetime! The Jiva Grande Spa and Salon, State of the Art fitness centre and two outdoor pools ensure this is the ideal getaway for leisure in the city of Bengaluru! With over 25000 sq.ft. of indoor and outdoor banqueting space, The Taj West End lends itself wonderfully to business conferences, conclaves and celebrations alike. The Taj West End looks forward to welcoming its guests to Bengaluru’s favorite hotel, a true icon for hospitality in the city. ... more   less
