Bangalore is known to be an expensive place in India , especially in respect of star hotels. Atria was rightly priced for its size and standard ; more so because its location is an added plus point.
This is the only hotel (in my knowledge) which offers complimentary alcoholic beverage to guests. While checking in , I was given a coupon which could be exchanged in the bar (aptly called Aqua) for 60 ml. of regular scotch or vodka or brancdy or gin or a glass of wine or a bottle of beer ; between 6.30 PM to 8 PM . The bar turned out to be a simple but decent place , not overtly pretentious ; which serve the promised spirit with peanuts and popcorn . Better tipplers than me will find the complimentary 60 ml too inadequete to quench their thirst and buy more spirit to supplement what they get gratis. Win Win really. I liked the idea.
The room was good enough for a good night's sleep ; but there was something which I found rather awkward. The bedroom and the bath/WC are separeted by a transparent glass sheet. If one forgets to draw trhe curtain inside the bathroom and if there is someone else in the bedroom ; then it is becomes an open display of nudity or whatever one has to display under his clothes. May be it was deliberately designed that way for playful couples. But it can become quite embarassing for non-couple occupants or even for a single occupant while receiving a guest. Moreover , drawn curtain is not the default setting when the room is offered for occupation. One has to draw the curtain after occupation.
I found water leaking from below the wash basin after every use of the wash basin.It was a plumbing problem in that room (#405 if I remember correctly). I have duly reported this in the feed back sheet which I deposited in the specified box near reception counter . I hope that it would have been attended to by now.
I was also not happy about the ward robe having been placed inside the bath/toilet .I can say that this hotel has tried its best to make guests feel that the toilet is very much a part of the living space , not requiring any seclusion or privacy.
Room was spacious , neat and comfortable.
There are restaurants called 'Tijouri' , '1498' and something else whose name I have forgotten. I entered into Tijouri but found it too noisy with revellers. Came out and entered 1498 , which was too silent ,which suited me. Most tables were empty and the place was deserted. I ordered tandoori roti and mixed veg curry which arrived after 30 minutes , though soup had come much earlier.Roti was fine , but mixed veg curry was not to my taste.Didn't like it at all.
Do i recommend this hotel ? yes , I do.
