Loved the room, it was spacious, well equipped, great tv with lots of English Channels. Good aircon, only thing as i found in all places i stayed, there was no Hairdryer, tip. take your own. Breakfast was very basic but they would cook you an omelette. Great location. Unfortunately for me, i didn't like Bengaluru at all, but was really...

Dear Essexiad, I am so sorry that you feel this way about my City Bengaluru, but believe me I grew up here and I know what a beautiful little cosmopolitan town it was. It was safest, cleanest and weather wise the best in India but we compromised all this to be known as the IT Hub. Modernisations I guess has...

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,...

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...

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

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...

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...

2 reasons that make this hotel special--superb location and Armugam ( Front office Manager ). He is an absolute gem and his attention to detail and customer satisfaction make this hotel special.

There is something really likable about this hotel: stylish yet simple, classy but not ostentatious, modern but with a history, something inviting and warm which feels like a home.
