“A great place to stay in Bangalore”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

I have just done my third stay at the Leela Palace in Bangalore in as many years and I love the place. It's like an oasis in the bustling city - the gardens are like a mini tropical jungle. Service is what you expect from a luxury hotel (excellent) and it's in a fairly good location for central, east and south east areas of the city. Rooms are very good size. Downside from my perspective is that they always seem to be doing work on the building (strange knocks and bangs in the night) and breakfast can be a bit chaotic (not getting what you ordered etc). I asked for a white coffee and was asked "sir, do you mean black coffee". Hehe.

Stayed here for a week on business in Bangalore.

Excellent hotel with nice clean confortable room, beautiful food and great service.

only negative was that the bar closed at 11:30pm and given that we did not get in from the office until late we didn't have much time to relax with a cold beer after our dinner.

would certainlty stay here again though.

last Saturday I thought I must go stay at the Leela I had heard great things. I will list my concerns the air conditioning was not working there were mosquitoes in the room, the whole night there was a plumbing sound in the room. I called the front desk at 2 asking to get this rectified the sent some engineer who obviously was woken up from his sleep couldn't fix the problem apologized and went back. Half an hour later a house keeping attendant walked in with a mosquito repellent.
I had paid 300 $ for this room. Restaurant were good, service was a bit intrusive, I had a manager place 2 huge glasses of an awful tasting mocktail on our table and a portion of children pasta was so large it would perhaps feed 3 adults.
The masterpiece was at checkout after I cleared my and I was fuming at this time the gentleman at the reception tells me, I believe there was a problem last night. Trying to keep my cool I told him yes my dear friend if you define air conditioning not working in 5 star hotel as a small problem you are spot on. The team obviously has no understanding of guest service and there focus is to collect money. The icing on the cake was this guy Saurabh telling me allow me to give you my card next time you stay with us I shall look after you. I told mate there not be a next time. These guys need some serious training.

We were there for 5 nights and I was ready to stay the month! This is a beautiful hotel inside and out. We had the club room which was awesome! If you can splurge - get this room. The food throughout the day is top notch. The staff is friendly and helpful. As stated by others - this is a world class hotel. The hotel is outside of the main downtown shopping district, be don't let this stop you. As for transportation - just walk outside the gates of the Leela and take an auto rickshaw - cheap and fun. We had the same driver all week. He really knew the city and helped make our stay such a good one.

Room Tip: Go for the club room

This is a wonderful hotel. It has a large foot print with spacious rooms and bathrooms. The food is top class. The lobby is large and the front desk is fast and efficient. The service is fantastic. The rooms are very large as are the bathrooms. This is one of my favorite hotels in India and I look forward to coming back many times for business. Breakfast and internet were included in our corporate rate so was a great value too,
