“Reasonable rate - Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

If you are looking for room in a good location with reasonable facilities at very reasonable rates, this will sure fit the requirement. I was staying here for a week, it is located in a very good location where places like Forum shopping mall, Croma, Staples, Christ college are just few meters and very much walkable. Places like Total, Koramangala are within a km.

Have almost all required shops and facilities very nearby. Rooms are very reasonable, all rooms fitted with AC, LCD TV, cable with almost all channels, Phone, Fan, wardrobe, fridge, water heater. Newly furnished and reasonably spacious, ample power sockets and lighting. Staff are friendly and helping, complimentary breakfast, newspapers provided, all floors are with lift facility. Car parking(secure) facility is also available at no extra cost. Complimentary breakfast provided is of good quality and good combination as well. Transportation facility is available almost round the clock.

Thanks to a courteous and very helpful person named Shajahan. Sure, a good and very reasonably priced rooms in a very good locality!

This hospitality group which proudly calls itself Libra Group of Hotels, is, to be true just a horrific and sickening Lodging facility.
They take pride in having a receptionist who is not dressed up, not taken a shower for quite some time and still serving patrons as he thinks it is the best place in all of Koramangala. The moment you enter through the main entrance you feel a disgusting stink of a smell. On your way upto the room you will find cockroaches dead in the floor lobby waiting for someone to clean them up. You reach your room and see that the door might have been forced open several times and hence has a big wooden plank to hold the aldrop lock. When you enter the room you are greeted with a far more disgusting stink than the receptionist section which gives you a feel why did you not refuse to check in the first place. You gather courage and enter the room and hold your breath till you can beat off your disappointment. You find the washroom full of cockroaches, a dirty bucket, no shower. You then try to clear your head off imagining the restaurant could be a better place but are invited by another set of uninterested 'gentle'men and a new one of a kind stink. You then realize there is no breakfast except for Idli and Bread Butter and when you see the way the food is handled you feel like puking right then and there. By the time you decide to run away from this trash of a place, you notice the main view in front of your room is a huge plot with plenty of garbage (interestingly that is not used as a landmark!). You leave disappointed after 5 mins of your check-in realizing that makemytrip.com tricked you in booking this trashy place (on phone that is) and billing you 2000 bucks upfront.

I wish I could rate this a Zero but did not see that option!

The hotel is located in Koramangala, and is right next to The Forum Mall. Its only virtue is its location. The rooms and the service at the hotel are utilitarian and simple. It is neat and tidy, but no ambiance whatsoever. The room felt stuffy at times because the windows open onto either a bustling Hosur Road, or onto a view of the building next to it. The food ordered through room service is not very appetizing, but there are plenty of restaurants and pubs just a stone's throw away. I would recommend this hotel only if you're travelling alone on business and need the hotel for its location.

Libra Hotel is situated in Koramangala Bangalore which is the prime area for shopping lovers. Though the locality where this hotel is situated is good but the rooms and service is not up to the mark. I paid Rs. 1200 for a room which was very small had a cubby hole like washroom. The hotel provides a complementary breakfast which is decent and somewhat justifies the room tariff. Overall an average hotel in a great locality.

Very different from the website, it really is a terrible hotel with cockroaches, noisy, and lots of hanky panky going on.. girls, etc.! Definately not a family-type hotel!
