I was a bit dubious about booking this hotel, as the pictures on their website did not match the relatively cheap prices quoted (from Rs 2,400 for single occupancy to 2,800 for double occupancy)
When I arrived at the gorgeous, quiet location in Jayanagar (perfect for business and tourist/shopping alike), I was greeted with a friendly smile, good service and all the assistance I needed with luggage etc. The travel agent had made a mistake with my booking and had me due for the next day (I will be booking direct with the hotel from now on!!!) but they accommodated this with no problem and found me a room.
I was stunned when I got to my rm - the decor is luxureous and very, very comfortable. Huge bed, beautiful wood interiors, marble table, desk and chair, bedside tables with lamps, wardrobe and baggage 'hold' to place you suitcase on for easy access.
The bathroom was head to toe marble, the shower was gorgeous and the little tray of toiletries was a nice touch.
The room service is spot on and the meals are cooked to perfection... plus they are HUGE!!! I ordered the vegetarian thali and only managed about 1/3 of it!!!
The complimentary breakfast is lovely... the restaurant is small and cosy, and the South Indian food on offer for breakfast was just right. Try the masala tea... it's delicious!
Check out was fast and painfree... and the transfer to the airport at 2am was no problem, with a nice Tata Indica taking me there safely and on time.
I recommend this hotel to everyone, as it really is of a first class standard as far as mid-range hotels in India go.
It gets 5* from me, and I look forward to my next stay this coming October.
