“web booking scam”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

The rooms are mediocre as other reviews have pointed. I would have liked to give at least 2 stars if not for the bad booking experience. The web hotelgrandmeridien.com online booking link took me to reshaven.com which charged me Rs 850 for "deposit". At checkin and billing the hotel refused to apply this deposit saying it was reshaven's (some 3rd party agent) fees for the booking and they had nothing to do with it.

This was a a false advertising on reshaven's part but the link was from the hotel web site??Collusion? As most reputable online booking agents like expedia/kayak etc make very clear of their "deposit" and commisions are deducted from the total with total consonance with the hotels. but of course in India Kuch be chalta hai...

My advice is don't book online, and as the otherreview said, there's a better Hoysala hotel across the street which my party moved to next day.

The hotel rooms and clean and well maintained. Washrooms are clean. Bath and linen are well maintained and clean. The restaurant is useless. You can use it just for your morning coffee. Nothing else is good there. Not even basic items like juice and omelette. There is a good vegetarian restaurant opposite to the hotel. It is close to the main areas like Majestic, Commercial street and Mantri mall. There is a small underground parking area and a small lift. Overall - value for your money in a Central location. Room boys may not know English.

Receptionist is like you stay if you want. Wi-fi doesnt work half the time. Good Clean rooms. Good restaurant available opposite to the hotel. Own restaurant is bad. Rooms are clean but plastering has started to come off. Considering Bangalore climate, an AC room may not be required.
