4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2011

the rooms were clean and spacious.There was a separate living area as well as a dining area.The food was delicious though much variety was not provided,but the service was prompt.The only drawback was that the wi-fi was not accessible.The location is excellent.

The rooms are spacious and clean , but the food is average. The price is a bit steep. There is no space for children to play around. In fact there is no open lounge or grounds at all. but the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. there were no snacks or drinks in th e refrigerator , and the breakfast was average.

I had a 5 day stay in this hotel. Very comforting. The rooms were elegant enough and gave a homely look. The breakfast served was good. The Dinner, especially non-veg was superb. The house-keeping staff were constantly on their toes at any point of time to give the best of hospitalities.


Thanks,

I stayed at the Brunton Aster in April 2011 for around 3 days while on Business in Bangalore. Compared to a similar hotel (in terms of standards), the Brunton Aster was good value for money. I got a much bigger room than I would from any 3 or 4 star hotel for the same price. Brunton Aster was easy to find (just off MG Road), had friendly staff and was clean and hygienic (very important for foreign travellers). The furnishing and design were also very nice.

Kitchenettes were provided, but in addition to a sink and fridge there was nothing else! What is the point in a kitchenette if there is no means of heating or cooking food! A microwave and toaster would be a welcomed addition to an otherwise nice room.

My only real complaint (and it's a big one for any Apple users) was the problem with the WIFI compatibility with Apple Iphone and IPAD. As a business guest, WIFI is absolutly crucial, and during my stay I realised that the WIFI connection at Brunton did not work with Apple.

I used WIFI on my IPhone and IPAD in hotels all over India with no problem, but at this place it wouldn't work. Another guest had the same problem while I was there. The staff were already aware of the problem, but still let me toil overy my IPAD settings in the lobby for over an hour, until later telling me they were aware of this problem.

As a solution, I went to a nearby hotel and bought Airtel WIFI vouchers, allowing me to use WIFI there. This was a huge inconvenience and expense. rs450 per day. I would stand outside the nearby hotel using my IPhone to send and receive emails! I explained to the staff of my incurred costs, and they allowed me a few hours late checkout (which most hotels give anyway).

I am a regular traveller to Bangalore, and would definitely consider staying at the Brunton Aster again IF the WIFI problem is resolved! From my limited technical knowledge it would be quite easy and economical to fix this problem.

Its a service apartment and not a hotel (I prefer these as they are much less noisy).
Stayed here simply due to proximity to my workplace, but soon realized that its so much better for a business traveler as compared to a hotel in at least the following aspects.
1. Size of rooms.
2. Proximity to M.G. road, the heart of Bengaluru
3. Housekeeping provides all necessary toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving kit, ear-buds, comb, hair-drier, hair-oil and of-couse soap and shampoo / conditioner)
4. Free internet
5. Room service provides Veg/N.Veg both.
6. Every room has a Balcony (can you beat this). I am one of those who read the morning newspaper in the morning and to do it in the calm and quiet environs of Brunton Aster is a great start to my day.
7. Breakfast as you like it. They are always ready to serve some fresh fruit juice rather than canned stuff at most hotels. You can have either egg's done or some dosa.
Some negatives at the breakfast include some ready to eat cookies and cakes which should be skipped.
8. A well maintained basic gymnasium.

All in all, i dont have to look for any alternatives while i am at Bengaluru and will be happy to stay there for all future business visits.
