I visited this hotel earlier this year and was very impressed with everything. That was in the "high season". It was totally different on a second visit. Staff were lethargic and not really helpful. On the day I arrived the outside temperature was 37 degrees, but the room had the aircon turned off and the bar fridge not turned on.

The tissue container in the bathroom was empty, the spare toilet tissue placed 2 metres away from the toilet, no valance on the bed and no Room Service menu in the room. The menu in the main restaurant had been scaled right back and some of the hot food was totally cold. The breakfast was very ordinary.

I must say though, that the doorman was outstanding. I understand some on these things are minor, but having seen this hotel at its best, I was very disappointed to see it in this downgraded state. Most disappointing was the service, or more accurately, the lack thereof.

I would stay there again, but only in the "high season". I gave this hotel 5 stars last visit in January 2013, but this visit I would only give it 2 stars.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the government buildings have the better views

Hospitality is good. Food served in buffet was not upto the mark.Room service was fast.Do not miss out on the rooftop Trivoli Garden restaurant. Good for a family stay. This place is close to city hot spots like commercial street, brigade road and MG road. With this proximity , your entire dose Of B "lore can be fulfilled. All in all, the place is better than most but worse than best.

Some of the reviews on Trip Advisor made me rather anxious when I checked out the hotel before I travelled to Bangalore for a workshop with a high profile ad agency. I fact, i couldn't help wondering why such a high profile agency had not selected a better venue. Some of the reviews talked about a property well past its prime.

I was pleasantly surprised !

Spacious, well designed interiors. Large, spacious, well furnished, and tastefully done up lobby.

The staff didn't come across as typically elegant hospitality professionals. Some were sloppily dressed, couldn't communicate too well, but were, most of them, courteous and helpful, with ready smiles.

Some of the reviews advised readers to ask for a room on the second floor. So, while checking in I asked if I could get a room on the second floor.

"We're giving you a room on the fourth floor, Sir", said the lady at the reception.

"Is that better?" I asked.

"Yes, Sir", she smiled.

The rooms in the fourth floor were Club Royale category. Spacious, generously and comfortably furnished, well lit, and clean. Bed and bathroom linen were delightfully clean.

The banquet staff were a little worrisome. They seemed in a hurry to clock off duty and leave for home when I met them in the hall to set it up for next day's workshop. Nevertheless they did a good job of setting up the hall, and barring some dirty patches on the carpet in the corner, the hall was comfortable and the workshop went well.

Room service was good, food was well made, and check out was smooth.

Overall, a surprisingly good experience well worth the spend. With a little more attention to cleanliness in the banquet area, and some professional training to the existing staff, this can be a superb place to stay in Bangalore. As it is, few other hotels can match its central location, in the heart of the city.

I would be happy to use this place again !

Room Tip: Club Royale rooms are very good.

This is the second time I stayed in this hotel.I did it because of the reasonable tariff package offered to me by the hotel.Checkin process was good .staff at front desk are hospitable.Hotel is with reasonably good lobby and attached with a restaurant/coffee house.The room allotted to me is fairly big in size with an additional facility of An excellent Massage chair.Bed room and bath rooms are also reasonably maintained.But unfortunately the odour /smell emerges out of the carpets spread in the passage is a discouraging factor.Paying attention to this aspect may attract more guests.House keeping and bell services are satisfactory.There is a need for better orientation to the staff from room service .Quality of food needs to improved.I didnot have much time to exploit other available facilities in the hotel.but I understand hotel has good infrastructure with a number of event halls.With little more attention towards improvement,it has potential to be rated as very good from average.

Room Tip: Second floor
