very well located right next to the MG road and where all the evening action happens. stayed here for three days last week. the reception area in undergoing renovation so they have a make shift room coverted into a reception. so if you are staying here for the first time one wonders whats this and whats going to unfold. !! But what unfolded was not unpleasant at all. the rooms are nice and the food is actually quite awesome.
i did in-room dining on all three days and the food quality was good and so was
breakfast in the morning is a very good and among the better spreads i have seen in some time. i guess the way its presented delighted me more than anything. fresh fruits and juices with indian and continental food spreads are a delight. and service is great. in case you are a working traveller and move out of the hotel for the entire day then this breakfast is just waht you need. was here on all the three days and on all the three days coffee takes awfully long time to come whereas it should have been the easiest of the things to come.
rooms are decently spacious thou i didnt have too much of a view being on the 1st floor so my window faced another building just ouside. ideally the top floors would have been better.
The hotel is right in the heart of the city. the airport is a good 90 to100 mins aways from here during peak rush hours. i made it in 50 mins early in the morning at 5am to the airport but its quite a distance and in banglores traffic now adays its important to map your time so that one doesnt get stranded.
checked out early in the morning at 5am in the make shift reception and my check out was faster than what would have happened in any good hotel with a good reception. well done on this count inspite of the restrictions.
overall a nice place and surely recommended. would i come back...may be but after i have seen another few hotels in the city and then choose one which suits me the best.
