Stayed 2 nights at this central Bangalore hotel - couldn't fault it. Rooms clean and well appointed, sumptuous breakfast, attentive staff. Be sure however to specify preference for non-smoking floor at booking.

Wonderful hotel and will be recommending to my colleagues. Visiting for Business, this hotel was a home away from home. The rooms were fantastic and had a nice homely feel. I had stayed in larger hotels, but loved that this was more personalised. Free internet was a bonos as most of the other hotels had hefty charges. The staff were the best and very helpful and approachable. Drinks on the Terrace were fantastic and the food was wonderful too. I don't have a bad word to say about this place. Located close to shopping and easy to get to places. I will definately be coming back and will be encouraging my colleagues to stay here. It's all the little things that make the difference. Thanks for a wonderful nights stay.

Partner and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's a great hotel, all the staff are very friendly and helpful. We'd like to mention and thank the Duty Manager Akshay Sapaliga and the barman Achit for being so wonderful and helpful to use during our stay.

The rooms were nice and clean and fairly spacious. We had a room on the 7th floor so it was pretty isolated from the noise from the streets.

Room service for food is pretty hit and miss. One night we had a fantastic meal while another we received cold chips with our fish...

The breakfast buffet has a wide assortment of dishes. Just a warning, don't drink the Yakult as it's made in India. My partner went spewing after drinking it as her gut bacteria probably wasn't used to the stuff made in India.

Overall, if i had to stay in Bangalore, this would be the place I would go to again.

Thyis is my 4th stay at this hotel and it gets better every time. I travel a lot in India and I still firmly believe that this has to be the bast hotel in the country. Again the hotel attended to my travel arrangements and again it ran like clockwork and for a reasonable rate. Again a huge thank you to all of the staff for making my visit so enjoyable.

A special mention has to be given to Mr Ajit Das who looks after the bar and can be seen at breakfast on most mornings. You cannot fail to miss him, always smiling and always seems to have the time to have a conversation with you no matter how busy he is.

I cannot fault this hotel in any way and it is always a pleasure to stay here. Looking forward to my next visit.

I spent 2 nights here in Janurary 2013 on a business trip to Bangalore. If you're like me and have meetings at different places across the city, the St. Mark's central location is perfect. The hotel is nicely appointed and my room was modern, clean and comfortable. WiFi speeds were good enough for Skype calls back to the US. Hotel staff and service were excellent and I really liked the rooftop terrace for a drink after work. The hotel restaurants were good, but there are also quite a few within walking distance in the neighborhood. I'm weary of chain hotels, and the St. Mark's was a welcome change.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three days and enjoyed our stay. The rooms have a lovely decor and are clean. The bed is very comfortable, got really good sleeps. The breakfast at the hotel has a great variety and we thank the staff there for making masala tea for us each day. In terms of service, the staff were attentative and polite, they attended to requests quickly. I also appreciated the hotel managers and duty managers speaking personally to guests to ensure that guest are happy with their stay and also seeking suggestions on how thay could make our stay even better. Oh, the terrace upstairs is lovely and quite, gives you a good view of Bangalore.

Room Tip: we took the executive room option for our three day stay.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our 2-week stay at St. Mark's Hotel. I was in Bangalore for work and St. Mark's made my living accommodation run so smoothly. The hotel's location is convenient: walkable to my company, to MG Road, to UB City Mall, to a large State Bank of India branch, and to numerous dining options within a 2km radius. We did not need to use an auto-rickshaw once during this trip, but should we need to, there were a couple of auto-rickshaws waiting right in front of St. Marks for patrons. Beyond its location, the hotel provides a complete peace of mind through their thoughtful amenities and exceptional service. We booked an executive room, and it was a good decision for the extra space to make our long stay more comfortable. The room has a simple, tasteful layout with subdued modern décor in warm tones, a relatively firm bed and midweight comforter to maintain utmost comfortable sleep, modulated light switch control at your fingertips (on the nightstand), a beautiful and bright bathroom having a large walk-in shower, and other useful provisions. The hotel's breakfast buffet is outstanding in both breadth and depth: options for warm and cold food, Indian and Continental (and some Asian), vegetarian or meat, all highly palatable thanks to their chefs. We especially appreciated their fresh juices including carrot and beet juice. We also enjoyed the hotel's fitness room which, although small, managed to contain 2 treadmills, 1 elliptical, 1 stationary bike, a multi-weights machines and freeweights. Above all, St. Mark's commitment to hospitable service is commendable. Every member of the hotel staff was kind and helpful, from room service that kept our abode well-stocked, to the professionally courteous reception desk, to the dining staff that ensured each guest is looked after. We are thankful of having the opportunity to come into contact with such kind, hospitable hosts at St. Mark's Hotel. Later in our travels after we left Bangalore and stayed at "lesser" hotels, we really missed the food and service and amenities of St. Mark's. This hotel really sets the bar for our international travels. Without hesitation, I recommend St. Mark's Hotel to business travellers in Bangalore, if you want pampered comfort and 5 star service that makes your Bangalore stay pleasant and productive.
