This hotel allows you to get away from the busy city life and bring you to another world inside Bangalore. The hotel is more like a jungle resort with lots of green and large colonial design rooms. breakfast at the cafe Mynt is also pretty decent and service is really good all around the hotel.

If you want a really relaxing experience in a setting of lush green gardens with excellent attentive and friendly service - this is the place! It was like stepping into a different world - yet its right in the middle of the city in close proximity to all that you require.
The food and service at the Blue Ginger Restaurant was superb.

Excellent ambience, courteous staff, quality food, central location.

Anshul at front desk and Farzana at the breakfast Room in particular are ever enthusiastic to cater to individual requirements of each guest.

Due to trees and gardens, there is simply no alternative to stay at Bangalore.

My sixth or seventh visit. Infact have been staying since it was Spencer's prior to takeover by Taj.
,

Room Tip: Take any ground floor room.

The rooms are fantastic with an old world charm. I stayed in the Presidential suite and got an upgrade, However, the regular rooms are very nice too. The lovely trees in the compound are stunning and there are many trees that are over 100 years old. The breakfast cafe is great and I would strongly recommend sitting by the lawn and having an early morning south Indian breakfast. The Asian restaurant is very nice too. This place has a charm of its own and is like an oasis in the middle of a busy city.

Room Tip: Stay in the cottages to get the experience of the old world charm.

I got a truly unforgettable experience at the Taj. From the warming welcome ceremony to the kindness of the staff, to the beautiful room to the spa. The hotel is an oasis of beautiful gardens-ponds-and pools in the middle of the city. Once I got there it was hard to leave!. Fantastic restaurants, terrific spa treatments and an amazing two bedroom suite.....
I got to speak to one of the pool tenders who has been working there for over 25 years. A true gem of a person.
I will definitely go back and recommend it as one of my true greatest hotel experiences ever!

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
