The Gateway Hotel on Residency Road
Ranked #28 of 729 Hotels in Bengaluru
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool will be much quieter than those overlooking the street.

Dear Dfkotz,

We thank you for having chosen to stay with us and thank you for your feedback. We understand that the pool was not as per your expectations rules do not allow hotel pools to have more than a 5 foot depth.

We are happy that you enjoyed the food and excellent service at the restaurant.

We look forward to having you back at the Gateway soon and assure you our best always.

Warm Regards,


Albert Rebello

The Gateway will always be a Taj. And the one thing that sets the Taj apart is their level of consistency. The Gateway in Bangalore will feel like the Gateway in Ahmedabad or Kochi. And I mean the consistency of very good customer-service.

The one on Residency Road is formal, business savvy and functional. Over and above, it's location, location and location. You step out to the retail epicenter of Bangalore. And it's astonishingly quiet for being in the midst of the maddening milieu.

The rooms are clean, well-laid out and functional, and so Gateway! Same for customer-service, breakfast menu, et al. If there is room for improvement, it could be on how the staff communicate with each other, especially in front of guests. One would expect the same level of courtesy with colleagues as with guests. Anything else would make this pretense.

In all, the hotel does not outdo itself on any particular front, but it's typical Gateway and still very well. And good enough for the Gateway guest.

Taj Gateway in Bangalore India has perhaps the best bar in town. Recently renovated it has several private alcoves for meetings and sprightly service. It was a pleasure seeing the refurbished lobby too. Great value.

The legendary Karavalli restaurant is a fine dining Kerala cuisine delight. Its founding chef now operates in London. But his successors deliver excellent stuff. Do go.

Room Tip: A rear facing room will be quieter, methinks. Great value for money.

I have always loved staying at the gateway in bangalore as it is amazingly central and allows me to access various types of food joints and pubs which are all within a 10 min walking distance. They were renovating the hotel for the last year or so which is why i had avoided staying there in that period. I am glad to say that the new "improved" gateway is swanky and trendy and the renovation has been worth it. Loved staying there last month after the renovation. The service is great , as expected, and karavali the restuarant in the hotel continues to be the best place to have coastal food in bangalore.
The gym is nice , never used the pool or spa so cant comment on that.
Highly recommended for business or pleasure.

I frequently travel to Bangalore and regularly make pit stop here for the brunch. Very good selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare, courteous service and overlooking loads of greenery! Love the place.

The hotel is located right at the heart of the city. The tariff is reasonable. Though the rooms are not too big and extravagant, it is a good enough property for a short stay. Service is prompt and efficient. The only drawback is the extremely loud pub.
