After staying at several other hotels in Bangalore, I settled on staying at the Chancery several years ago. It keeps getting better and my last stay prompted me to compliment them on their hospitality.
I was late when I arrived and the hotel’s driver called in before I arrived. The clerk met me in the lobby with the papers ready for me to sign to check in. I had told the driver I wanted a beer when I got in and he relayed that to the assistant manager. He asked me how much beer I wanted and said it would be brought to my room.
The hotel now has free Wi-Fi that is hassle free. As a business traveller, the last thing I want to do when I get to a hotel is mess around with the arcane methods hotels have of extracting money from me to get my e-mails. Most hotels make this a painful experience and some make it seem like you need to be punished! But as the assistant manager stated, the Wi-Fi worked perfectly and was fast. I remained active for my entire stay.
The gym is good and has recently been expanded to include a Jacuzzi (which I didn’t use). The staffs there are friendly and helpful.
Most rates at the hotel include breakfast and dinner. The food is always good and if you have had enough of Indian food they even serve bacon and eggs for breakfast.
The hotel is close to MG road, so it’s easy to walk there for small provisions or for the many shops selling Indian crafts and souvenirs. If you have more energy, you can walk to Commercial Street where there are more stores. If you don’t want to walk that far the 3-wheeler rickshaws will take you there for a few Rupees.
In all, it’s hard to fault this hotel.
