This is my regular stay in Banagalore. The hotel is quite simple and the price modest. Recently it was announced that there would be a renovation but in vain. The reception is small during the night the personal sleeps on the banks in the back of the reception. The rooms do not make realy a clean impression and the outlook out of the windows is in the back of the hotel a desaster. There is no WLAN available. The advantage of the hotel is that it is in the middle of the city and situated in a shopping street. The chines restau in front I can recommend for the food. The hygienic conditions are a desaster. The breakfast in the hotel is not suited for Western.

Monarch Hotel is located very close to most business locations around Brigade Road. However one-way traffic and jams make traveling to & from the Hotel uncomfortable.

The hotel itself is located in shopping complex, with entry being common to the hotel & the shopping area, which sometimes confuses the guests.

However the Hotel provides very good food and hospitality at a reasonable price. It also offers MAP packages to Government employees within their entitlements, due to which it is very popular amongst government visitors to Bangalore.

Rs70 for a bottle of water when you can get it in the shop for Rs15-20. Taxi over charges everything so stay away from the Travel Desk. Get a taxi or rickshaw on the street for a lot less.

The rooms also have a very weird smell about them.

The hotel is near a lot of shops which is the only thing going for it.

The best thing about the hotel is its Location .. Bang on the Brigade Road.. what else you need in Bangalore... The room / bathroom is decent enough and breakfast/food is edible.. with one or two good dishes. They have a basement parking facility which is good if you have some localities visiting you.

This hotel is at the centre of the city and good mid-end hotel for business as well as leisure. The staff is helpful and service is good. Food and breakfast is very good.

It's bang on brigade road and very close to M G Road which is a boon by itself with a lots of pubs, restaurants and cinemas around in addition to unlimited options for shopping around.

It's easy to get around in the city and catch the most your clients to make maximum of your time while you're traveling.

Overall I will rate this as an excellent mid end hotel.
