“Scenic Bar but small rooms”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

I was there for a business visit on Dec 18th, 2012 and was impressed by ISTA Hyderabad. Hence decided to stay at the Bangalore property. The staff is very customer friendly. Rooms are not very spacious. I wasn't particularly impressed by the the spread for breakfast... not much to offer and taking a long time to serve. The Bar is very impressive, but again not the quantity of the starters for the price at which they are charged. Location of the property is very convenient for business travelers as it is located in the heart of the city. I liked the scenic view from my room and definitely the check-in and check-out process.

Room Tip: Go for the higher floors to have a scenic view of the city.

I was on a business trip there for just a couple of days and for the first time, stayed at ISTA's properties and must say the experience was really wonderful.

Located in the heart of the city and very near to MG Road.

The staff is very customer friendly. Also the food facilities are wonderful. Most important of all loved the super fast check-in and check-out :)

Room Tip: Loved the idli-sambar from in room dining :)

Highly attentive staff, well appointed rooms and a terrific location make this a natural choice for me for any work or leisure trips.

Its location right off the main MG Rd ensure you reach most places in the city in under 30 mins + is quiet enough.

Great breakfast on the terrace.

Stayed at Hotel Ista from November 28th till December 1, 2012. The hotels is conveniently located and within walking distance of MG Road. The rooms are nice with all the usual amenities and service standards are okay. Breakfast was a disappointment with very limited choice. Did room service for couple of evenings and was not very happy with the quality of the food.

This is a very conveniently located hotel for travellers with business in the heart of Bangalore city. The staff is very good, and highly customer oriented. The food is good too, though there could be a little more improvement on the menu. The gym is small but not bad for a business traveller. The spa is also very nice.

Room Tip: Lake facing rooms are best.

Quick ceck-in and check-out pocedure, hotel is not oversized and offers a comfortable and cosy feel which is a pleasant change to the usual larger sized hotels in Bangalore. Room was a bit on the small side but ok, very comfortable bed. I was missing a selection of curry dishes for breakfast as well as a larger selection of fruit. Poached egg served was watery and cold and lacked of taste, this was really a pity.

I didn't like my 2 night stay at the Ista. The room was fine with the usual amenities, although very much on the small side. The view from my room was the best part as it overlooked, from a distance, the lake. The wake up it the morning at 5:15AM is the local call to prayer which I didn't want or need.
This hotel is in an urban location unlike some other much higher end hotels that are surrounded by parks and sheltered from noise pollution.
Basically if you are on a budget, bring some ear plugs and you'll be fine.

Namaskar!

We take this opportunity to thank you for your review of Ista Bangalore.

The location is one of our USP’s with its close proximity to both the business and entertainment district of Bangalore, the view from the room of the Ulsoor lake adds to the overall experience.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused due to the sound from the nearby area. We would like to mention that we do have rooms on other sides that do not face this issue.

We look forward to being of service during your next visit to the hotel.
