Very helpful and engaging team from the butler, housekeeper, bell men, front line staff, waiters - awesome team. The waiter knows exactly what I take when I go for breakfast daily - My favorite masala tea. The painist played excellent pieces. While I was eating, the music destresses me after heavy day.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 November 2016

It is an oasis in the middle of a noisy city full of traffic and pollution. Somehow, the property reminds you of old Bangalore, renowned as the garden city of India, once upon a time. The hotel is set across 12 acres of lush greenery. It is a heritage property built 127 years ago. I have no hesitation in saying...

In grew up in Bangalore but left 34 years ago. Staying at the Taj West End brought me back to the Bangalore of old. The heritage buildings, beautiful property and amazing service was a saving grace in an otherwise chaotic trip to my city of birth that was once a garden city but now is a garbage city.

This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in - it may well be THE best. The fact that we had an upgrade to a lovely (and extremely spacious) suite may have somewhat coloured my view, but everything about the place is just perfect. The check-in process was swift and the receptionist charming. The room was fantastic...

Must admit, it's one beautiful property on Race Course Road. Ample greenery and dwindling stoned walkways to various room sections makes this hotel a superb favourite! I had a room on the ground floor. Great decor, modern spacious room with a large toilet and forest essential toiletries surely made my stay all the more comfortable. Good in room service, wifi,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Celebrating 125 years and more, The Taj West End, an icon in the city of Bengaluru ideally located in the city centre, is in close proximity to the Bangalore Golf club and is well connected to all major business and IT parks. The 117 rooms and suites are designed for guests to enjoy the highlight of the hotel - the lush, greenery-and-water designed landscapes. This magnificent property opened its doors to guests as early as 1887 under a Victorian lady, Mrs. Bronson. By the turn of the century, Bronson’s West End’s prosperity had attracted a fair bit of attention, and in 1912 passed into the hands of the Spencers. Since 1984 the hotel has been managed by the Indian Hotels Company Limited. Exuding magnificence and history from every corner, today this hotel speaks to all travelers staying within its walls. The Taj West End is also home to some of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants and award winning restaurants, offering unique and exquisite cuisines. Each outlet; Mynt, Blue Ginger Masala Klub and Blue Bar will showcase their finest offerings, sure to enchant, impress and dazzle guests. The hotel has created several Exclusive and Unique Experiences for its guests all through the year, pampering and delighting them in true Taj West End style. Whether one opts for a Breakfast under The Raintree, Dinner at the Paradise Table at Blue Ginger or under the stars at Masala Klub, guests will surely make memories that last them a lifetime! The Jiva Grande Spa and Salon, State of the Art fitness centre and two outdoor pools ensure this is the ideal getaway for leisure in the city of Bengaluru! With over 25000 sq.ft. of indoor and outdoor banqueting space, The Taj West End lends itself wonderfully to business conferences, conclaves and celebrations alike. The Taj West End looks forward to welcoming its guests to Bengaluru’s favorite hotel, a true icon for hospitality in the city. ... more   less
