I have stayed in many hotels throughout India and can truly stay that this is the best one I have stayed in. Yes the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai is more luxurious however the service and treatment I received at St Mark’s hotel is much better in every way. I felt like a king. The staff here have a special emphasis on giving excellent customer service at all times! Staff are always smiling and friendly and are asking if there is something else to help with.
This hotel has won many awards such as Expedia Insiders Select 2011 and Tripadvisor Best Bargain, Best Service India Hotel by the TripAdvisor Travelers' Choiceawards in 2009 and 2010. Once you stay here you can understand very easily why it wins many awards in the Travel Industry.
I have been to Bangalore before and stayed at another local hotel but I decided to use Tripadvisor to choose another hotel in this same locality. I booked this hotel based on the absolutely excellent reviews here on tripadvisor and I thank the tripadvisor community for pointing me to this hotel.
The hotel has been recently modernised. The lobby is large and bright. The rooms are lovely, modern, and very clean.
Internet is free throughout the hotel.
The hotel has their own car available as a taxi service to the airport. The hotel price quoted was approx. 1,500 INR. It is much cheaper to use the Meru cars which is just as good and the hotel front desk will be happy to organise. The Meru AC taxi costed me 780 INR at 4am to the airport.
The hotel General Manager is J.P. Menon who is on hand to ensure the staff and the hotel lives up to its excellent reputation.
All staff were very helpful but I would like to specifically mention that Mr. Madhu the Front Office Assistant was very helpful to me.
The Buffet breakfast is included in the package and the selection was absolutely fantastic. The presentation was excellent and staff ready to help people with special diets such as myself. Food was very fresh and clean.
A Breakfast box was available on checkout at 4am for me to take with me to the airport. The breakfast menu was exactly as I had requested. What more can I ask?
I would give this hotel a 7 star rating if this was possible.
I look forward to my next visit to St Mark’s Hotel.
