My wife and I stopped here for 4 nights during February 2012. Our reason for staying was to attend a Hindu Wedding being held locally. We booked this hotel after searching the internet. Initial contact was by telephone asking about rates and location to the wedding venue and could they arrange for airport to hotel transfers. Over the phone they were very helpful an also knowledgeable about how to get to places. As a result we emailed them asking for prices for accommodation and airport to hotal transfers, as a result we booked both. We were met at the airport as arranged and transfered to the hotel, all very well organised (we arrived in Bangalore airport at 8.30am and left the airport at 09.30, the transfer took 1hour 45 mins because of rush hour traffic). The hotel is located on the corner of a very busy traffic intersection, the noise from the constant blaring of horns was relentless. On arriving at the hotel we were shown to our superior room, superior room means located not facing the road. In fact we were in the back of the hotel, overlooking the building at the back, that did not worry us. The room was good, so was the bathroom, more a wet room which we prefered. Airconditioning worked well, room service was good, coffee making facilities in the room and they delivered fresh milk if you want it rather than powdered.
Breakfast were taken on the fourth floor, it was mainly Indian style (curry), you could have toast and yoghurt if you wanted. We used the Barvista just across the road, good Italian coffee and french pastries. There is also a Great Western money exchange just across the road where the exchange rates are good.
In general our stay was good, although we did not spend time at the hotel, mainly somewhere to sleep. We left for the airport at 06.00 and the bill was ready to pay. The transfer was smooth and this time took and hour.
Oh, one thing to remember, because I did not know it at the time. The price that they quote is plus tax and luxury tax, this has a significant effect on what you pay. My recommendation would be to ask for price including taxes
