“Good value, very touristy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

The room was really spacious, modern and cleaned every day. Hotel staff were excellent. It's located on a very busy street full of fast food restaurants and shops... not for everyone. The room did have a weird smell but we weren't fussed by that. It would be good for people travelling on business...but there isn't much to see in Bangalore, just a warning if you're thinking it was an interesting city, it's actually pretty hard to find stuff to do!

This was the most expensive place we'd booked during our trip to India, so we were expecting something extremely fancy... it was very good on the whole, but on closer inspection we realised that there were a few signs of decreased hygiene/attentiveness. E.g. 1) There was a constant smell of sewage, 2) When one of the beds was moved in our double room to make space for an extra bed, it revealed a cigarette butt, 3) There was some weird grime in the bath tub. However, we were very happy with other aspects, such as the location, buffet breakfast (which offers both indian and continential choices), comfort of the beds, overall decor and hotel upkeep, and friendliness and attentiveness of staff. Would visit again!

I have stayed in this hotel twice till date. To simply the review, its is jolted down as pros and cons below:

Pros:
1) Located on Brigade Road which is one of the most happening places of Bangalore. There are lots of restaurants, shops, pubs and discs near the hotel. A stroll down the brigade road, M.G. road or Church Street after the dinner is really enjoyable.
2) Internet Connectivity : Well the internet connectivity is inclusive in the Room Tariff and good enough around 2.5 Mbps. Quite important for the people who can stay away from net.
3) Room Service is quick.
4) Staff is very well behaved, accommodating and helpful.
5) Rooms are clean and nicely furbished with amenities like LCD TV, Mini Refrigerator and an Electronic Locker for storing valuable items.
6) Breakfast has quite a good number of options.

Cons:
1. Number of options in the dinner is limited and desserts are of average quality. Dinner should be preferable taken at any renowned restaurant on Brigade Road.
2. Exterior View from the Brigade Road would not give the look of a good quality hotel at all.
3. No Swimming Pool.
4. No Gymnasium
5. Lobby at the entrance seems like that of the nominal guest houses in Paharganj, Delhi.
2. Ambiance in the Dining Hall is way too ordinary.

In nutshell, the premium location of the hotel, prompt room service and good enough food outweighs few demerits in other departments where it is average. Should be preferred by Business Travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Brigade Road should be preferred as one can sit at the window in the evening and ha...

I enjoyed my stay here mostly due to the great location of this hotel. It is on the Brigade Road, the most happening area of Bangalore & main shopping centre. After day of tiring work, one can enjoy the evening at any of the numerous pubs & restaurants on the Brigade Road, one can get transports for any place in Bangalore, even at midnight, without much effort.
Room was specious, though the AC was pathetic, I called the technician thice without much improvement. There was much scope of improvement regarding illumination.
There was no tap in the washroom, except one with the wash basin, may pose some discomfort. Tea / coffee maker was not there, but they provided one on request.
Service was great, so was the breakfast with quite a good spread. One more thing I should mention that check in & check out was really fast & hassle-free & the staff at the reception was eager to provide all sort of help & to satisfy all queries
At the end I would say - An average hotel at a great location.

The best thing about the hotel is the location. Due to its location connectivity is never a problem even after midnight (but you will have to pay a lot as most of Bangalore's auto-rickshaw drivers don't use tariff meters and radio cabs are never available when you have to travel a short distance). Even though its located on a busy street the hotel is surprisingly quite. The rooms are good (though the lighting in the room could use correct placement). One thing I did not like is that there is only one power outlet (electric socket) in the entire room which causes a problem when you have to charge multiple devices. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The complimentary breakfast is great due to the wide variety of choices available and the food is quite tasty. I would recommend a stay in this hotel due to is location and great service.
