My family and I stayed at the Gateway for several days while we visited friends in Bangalore. We used to live in the city so we are familiar with the place, and wisely chose the Gateway because of its convenient location only 100m from Brigade Rd and one block from M.G. Road. There is thus a lot of shopping and dining within walking distance. Our visit included New Year's Eve and there was a huge crowd enjoying the night out on Brigade and M.G. Roads, a very festive atmosphere.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool was quite nice, though never deeper than 5 feet. There was a fitness room adjacent, but I did not try it out.
The main dining room had good food (nice dinner and breakfast buffets) and excellent service. We did not have time to try the other restaurant though it sounds wonderful.
The business center was convenient and I was able to print a couple of documents easily and for no charge.
There is a nice cabinet with european-style sweets and chocolates in the front lobby.
Overall, I recommend it for the location and reasonable rates.
