“An oasis in B'lore”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Our one nite stay at the West End was memorable. Its an incredible property and I guess Taj is very proud of this hotel.. The staff (esp the reception/lobby) were friendly and extremely helpful.We were in a suite which was fantastic.Every detail has been looked into... The garden and the landscaping is beautiful. Please do visit the Vietnamese restaurant. Excellent food.

There were minor issues like waiting (40 mins for bacon & approx 30 mins for a rava dosa) for breakfast dishes to be replenished....but that was perhaps due to an unexpected crowd all at the same time for breakfast.

The Taj West End is an amazing hotel

The staff was all very friendly and keen to ensure our stay was comfortable

The hotel grounds make you feel like you are entering a tropical resort with greenery and nature all around. The rooms are spread out around the property surrounded by gardens.

The pool is amazing, and the spa is as good as any around the world

I should have reviewed this hotel a couple of years ago; it was only updating my trip Adviser entries I had forgotten to do an entry, but not the Taj West End

My visit was and still is memorable and I still think it is one of the great Hotels

Highly recommended

My 1st visit to the Taj WestEnd and was generally impressed. I arrived at about 10:30 in the morning and was greeted by an extremely efficient and quick check-in. The staff were all very friendly and keen to ensure my stay was comfortable. We used the business centre for a meeting and this was great - only comment here was that there was a suggestion that we would have to pay to use a projector so we managed without!

My room was very spacious and had a great view into the gardens - it was quiet and comfortable and conductive to a good night's sleep. I ate at Blue Ginger one evening and would strongly recommend this restaurant - it was excellent - ambience, service was attentive but not overbearing and the food was fantastic. On another night ate at Mynt which was also good but for me Blue Ginger was better.

I will stay here when I come back to Bangalore

I appreciated The Taj West End services since check-in and till check-out. Staff was really open to assist customers in every single moments, being their request a fresh dosa for breakfast or a plaster after a little accident. Rooms are large, common areas are clean.

Our third visit to the Taj Westend in Bangalore India. We stayed there on 4th and 5th of December 2013.
The hospitality here is fantastic with friendly staff and excellent services. We were like family to the people there. Our special thanks goes to Paul Dokka who went that extra mile to ensure that we had the room we wanted and even provided us with excellent wines in the room to our pleasant surprise.
To the management and staff all the best for 2014 and keep up the excellent standards.

Room Tip: Club rooms are the best

We stayed here on 2 different occasions during our trip to India. The hotel is very nice. We loved the colonial aspect of the hotel. They messed up our pick up from the airport during our first stay but did everything possible to make up for the mistake. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were great and the food was good.

We were greeted by Eric at the airport during our second visit and I still do not understand how he recognised who we were?? Well done Eric! Our second stay was even better as everyone ensured that our stay was made as comfortable as possible.

I would definitely recommend the Taj West End.

This is truly a wonderful hotel!
Right at the airport, an hotel representative met us at the baggage claim and escorted us to the car park. We were then driven to the hotel. Arriving before noon, our rooms were not ready but we were offered 2 temporary rooms to freshen up.
In the afternoon we discovered our suite and interconnecting rooms. The decoration was a little old fashion but very spacious and calm.
We had a walk around the hotel and discovered the spa and the 2 swimming pools.
We then planned our visits in Bangalore with the hotel concierge who was very helpful and full of advice. We also used the cars from the hotel : great drivers.
Two special mentions :
- one for Philip (chef at Mynt Restaurant), who is not only a great cook but also a very nice person
- one for the Blue Ginger the Vietnamese restaurant in the hotel : great atmosphere and wonderful food!

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.
