Reviewed 24 January 2017 via mobile

It's like a high class home stay but not a hotel. It's a home converted into a hotel, so not that great. It's location is very good, close to UB city and other great locations in Bangalore. The road can get a little unsafe in the night though.

Facilities are not that good. There are no carpets on the floor, room service is not very quick. Internet works well

All in all, good location wise, but don't expect too many facilities!

This was my first stay in this hotel and i must say it was a random find and a pleasant find. This is situated very close to the Chinnaswamy Stadium and you can actually walk upto the Brigade road.

Rooms are very big with a kitchenette, the overall ambiance is very pleasing and tastefully done.

Only issue here is the food, it seems they have a very small kitchen and get food from outside. Breakfast is in a very nice setting but very limited options.

Not much to the hotel itself. Boutique hotel touches, extremely well located. May be a little pricey for what it offers, but definitely cuts it for being central enough, and yet removed from the immediate surroundings. Recommended for short dash stays and weekendering

A Quiet Well Located Boutique Hotel, in a small cul de sac, just off lavallee road.
The Rooms and Bathrooms are well sized, almost like junior suites, with a minimalistic look.
The Small Garden sitout overlooking the Lotus Pool is Nice. The Staff, too, are pleasant and eager to please.
The Property does some issues with general Supervision in maintenance, and, housekeeping, however, as the reviewer had issues with Ants and Mosquitos in his room and also that the Terrazzo Floors in The Room and Corridors could use better cleaning and mopping standards than the traditional Broom and Bucket.
The Property serves a Simple but Adequate Breakfast.Room Service is Avoidable as both the pricing and Variety leave something to be desired.
There are many good Dining Options, at various price points, within 5 to 7 Minutes Walking Distance.
Overall a Decent Place to stay without breaking the bank.

Room Tip: Difficult to locate. Go to The BMW Dealership Navnit Motors on Lavelle Road, the Hotel is in a Cul D...

Nestled in a quite cul de sac, just off Lavelle Road, it is unknown, still it is discovered. When we stepped in around 10 in the evening and was told that we need to decide within next 5 minutes whether we need anything to eat, we were thinking - hey, where have we landed? Once inside the room, we were pleasantly surprised. Nicely appointed room, pretty large, with all basic amenities provided for.

Next morning had more surprises for us. Dining area in the lobby has two nice water bodies, with plenty of water lilies (Nymphaea nouchali) and small fishes, a small artificial waterfall and double height ceiling. It was a really nice ambiance, and supported by ever smiling staff. Food was simple, but all fresh and good.

Throughout our stay, we never felt that we left our home. Everyone was willing to help. On a late night return, we found the dinning area lights are off and the whole area was resonating with frog calls! It was so nice that we just quietly sat down to absorb the nature around us for some time.

Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your review. When purple lotus was built, we had very carefully kept in mind to keep the place small and quite, where we could still hear the nature, right in the mids of a huge traffic bound city. Happy to know that we still have people who appreciate frogs conversing on hot summer nights just before the rains set in.
Welcome back to purple lotus, please feel free to whats'up us on 9591356300 for your quick reservation.
