West End is a resort type hotel and is Iconic in its own way. Located on the race coarse road, it is right in the middle of the city. It is also one of the best properties of Taj.

Rooms: Well lucky for me, I was upgraded to suite room from Club room. However, did have a good look at the Club rooms. The Club rooms are big and have a very large bathroom , but do not have any view of a garden or the greenery , which is the hallmark of the hotel. So, if you are fussy about the view from the room, then Club is not your best choice.

Suite Rooms : These are real cozy and comfortable rooms and also have a balcony attached to get a good feel of the fresh air in the evening and mornings. The view of the greenery is also soothing.

Pool : Is small and with cold water, I survived the running nose for the next 3 days.

Fitness Center : Wow place with great work out equipment . Mohd. the keeper is also a good trainer.

Breakfast : Needs improvement on the Indian station. Blr being a idli dosa city, the offering are at best average and below average, if considered Taj standards. The sambar needs to improve, the dosas need to improve and so is the other offerings like methi paneer etc. The " Yum" factor is missing. The Windsor Manor breakfast could be rated better then Westend.

Room Service : Very Good ; Ordered a Tiffin box and was delivered within 10 minutes. The Lasooni palak needs to improve on the tang of garlic. Rest was very good. Worth trying.

Service : Excellent and staff is very attentive to your needs .

Wifi : Taj has to understand that worldwide, wifi even in the smallest no star hotels is free and when you pay top dollars to a hotel then, the least you expect that you are not paying further extras as hidden charges for something as basic as wifi. It does not leave a good taste about the hotel and its policy.

West End will probably will have to start a policy of zero tipping as its service staff sometimes sound awaiting generosities.

Overall a very good place and fully recommended.

Room Tip: Choose the Block with 18 series.

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.
