Disclaimer: I never saw daylight here, arriving late and leaving before 6am to catch a flight. So this review is for people who want somewhere cheap to stay near the airport. I guess if you're reading this you've realised that Banglaore airport is a lo-o-ong way from the city ...
For under fifty US dollars, you get a bungalow with a double bed and bathroom in spacious grounds, that's less than 15 mins drive from the airport, yet quiet. The noisiest thing in the air was the fruit bats fidgeting about.
First thing to say is that every staff member I encountered was polite, efficient and helpful. I got there after 9:30pm but they still managed to make me some chapattis and daal with a cold beer for about three quid; I'm not sure there was much else to eat. Formalities were simple and they took my bags and sorted out the cab for the next morning.
Rooms are not for people who've no experience of India. The bedroom was slightly damp, all the plugs needed fiddling to get stuff charged, and there were quite a few little frogs hopping about in the room. So if that's not your thing then look elsewhere - personally I love that sort of stuff. There was hot water, bottled water, the bed was pretty comfy, wake up call worked fine, having a beer and plate of daal on the balcony with the sound of frogs was nice after Delhi's chaos.
Taxi arrived as requested. Polite staff took bags and wished me a good day. For a simple easy cheap overnight near Banglaore, why not? If you're in a suit and are expecting Le Meridien, this isn't for you.
