“Trendy room & good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Good business hotel with great location.
Right next to the major business areas as well as malls & restaurants.

The newly renovated rooms are trendy & vibrant while having a cosy feel at the same time.
Bathroom is small but the space has been used efficiently for comfortable functionality.

Breakfast in the coffee shop is a pleasure, with greenery around & with indoor as well as outdoor seating.

Service standards are good & make you comfortable.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms on lower floors.

Brilliant service overall. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. The pool area was also very nice. I would also recommend the Karavalli restaurant -- it was expensive, but phenomenal.

The cafe was open till late, had excellent food and a great breakfast buffet and the rooms were great.

Room Tip: Choose a pool side room, they're nicer and quieter

I travel to Bangalore on business about 4 to 5 times a year. For the past few trips, it's been a tough experience staying at this hotel due to their major renovation which has dragged on way past the original deadline.

I was there last April and they were still working on it. Once it is done, I probably go back there. Their location is perfect and the crew is really nice and friendly.

During a trip to south india, we stayed at one of the other hotels one way and at Gateway while returning back. This was my 4th stay there, though a primary business hotel, I have always stayed there for holidays.

It has a nice swimming pool, a good restaurant at the lobby level which serves buffet breakfast and lunch and is right in the city centre where most of the things are walking distance away. The famous malls are near by and there are book stores around if that helps pass time.

Definitely a place to come back again !

Staying in The gateway Bangalore was a wonderful experience, the property is good though there was some renovation work was in progress when we checked in but they made it so smooth that it was not disturbing at all to the guests. Rooms were good and really spacious. I must appreciate the cleanliness of the hotel and rooms as well.
Hotel staff was really cooperative since we reached 5 hours late they gave us complimentary late check out. Breakfast menu was good with lot of varieties as expected in a star hotel.
The internet services are really expensive but anybody can neglect it after seeing so many facilities.
