This property tops the list of choice of hotels in Bangalore mostly because its very well located, is calm and quiet, spaced out, perfect spot for me to host events, offers all luxuries and amenities that one looks at a 5 star hotel while staying for business purposes. The staff is very warm and keen to assist. The rooms are...

This is a great place to rest from the frantic Bengaluru. The hotel has a majestic green park. Renovated rooms are fantastic. But tmore than the place and the rooms, the staff is excellent, attentive and always smiling. Great experience !

A really lovely hideaway in the teeming metropolis of Bangalore, set in the most wonderful gardens that seem to soundproof you from the outside. The service is unsurpassed and make sure you don't miss a visit to the relaxing spa.

Where to begin?! So much to love about this hotel which is almost like a resort with grounds in excess of 20 acres - a stay in this oasis of calm and luxury away from the madness of Bangalore marked a great end to our holiday and gave us some chill-out time before the long trek home. It has grown...

The hotel premises exudes luxury, romance and pleasure in a busy city like Bangalore. Greenery, natural surroundings, peace and quiet works well for business and leisure both. Loom for 'straight/rectangular rooms only and not on top of reception. Food and Service are excellent, in all restaurants especially the Masala Club.

I made a revisit to this hotel after 30 years, when Bangalore was a small town in India and famous for its gardens, including the one at the West End hotel. Albeit I found a very different city this time I found that this hotel has managed to maintain its charm, ambience and personal service. The garden was still beautiful...

The Taj Westend is probably spread over 20+ acres!! This is by far the largest property for the number of rooms it has. To have so much greenery in the middle of the city, is not something one can experience nowadays in metro cities. This is a heritage property, steeped in history. While one may find the rooms a bit...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Taj West End for five days during our visit to Bangalore and were thrilled by our experience.

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
