“Very Nice!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Over all is really good experience! But for some reason there was a confusion on the extension of one more day but the manager was understand his mistake and did properly at the time of billing.

Room service is really great, I feel I am in my house. Mr. Ramesh (Room service guy) was really great and I really appreciate his valuable service!

They provided the Wifi free of cost! and the food cost is really too costly based on my experience. Over all is really good. I will use them again!

Room Tip: I never see a difference for both Ac and Non AC.

We booked through Make my trip. We stayed for one day. Our check in delayed to midnight due to Mysore 'Jambo Savari'. Each time we called the reception the response was very good. Room service & staff behavior was good. Those who look for budget accommodation at central location this hotel is a good choice. M.G. road, Church Street and Brigade Road for shopping within 10 minutes walk.

Pros:
- We booked the hotel via Makemytrip after reading the reviews. So as the review, the hotel quality is good for the cost and the location.
- Heart of the city, full bonus for the location. Close to MG Road, Shivaji Nagar bus terminal, COmmericial Street for shopping etc...
- Lot of choices for Non Vegetarian but seems excellent as you find a huge crowd. Restaurant is open till late night may be 2AM.
- Rooms are clean to desired level.
Cons
- Deluxe and Standard, there are no difference.
- The AC room offered had a WIndows AC which had no remote. So once On one cannot control the temperature of AC. The AC is set to very low, so you must manually get up switch off power and on as and when the cooling is required. Checked with Service guy he says no Remote.
- Rooms are nice, the service guys / Room Service guys makes a lot a of noise even during night.
- As the restaurant is open late, lot of rush with lot of noise one can hear. If you are a person who need complete calmness for sleep then its going to be tough.
- No Hot water to drink will be provided, though Bangalore is a cool place. I dont think we can buy Hot Water :)

General:
- Please confirm room by sending email to the hotel. Also call and confirm you hotel as they have multiple hotels nearby.

Room Tip: Please ask for top floor rooms to avoid any noise.

The food was certainly overpriced but the hotel is overall good. Clean rooms & bathrooms. Nice location. The hotel staff was also very helpful.Just off the main road so no problem in getting means of transportation.

They say don't judge the book by its cover. It fits perfectly here. Its a small 2 star property.

Location: Bang in the heart of Bangalore, 2 mins walk-able distance from MG Road, Brigade Road, Commercial Street.

Service: Very Good. Polite staff,

Rooms: For just 800 bucks a night for a standard room, it is actually very good. Value for every penny. Neat, Clean, very good view from the window

Very importantly it is 24 hours check-in check-out.

Food: Decent.

Keep Up :)

A friend and I staied here for 2 nights. Before we had two weeks of travelling, where we needed light luggage. Therefore we sent our big suitcase full of useless stuff over to them. We didn't really think it would work out, but 2 days after sending, they phoned and told us, it had arrived. The day we arrived at 6 in the morning, the check in guy saw my name and directly told me, that they had a suitcase for me and that somebody would bring it to our room. Perfect service, I think. And I am very greatfull for that.
The room was the best we had in those 2 weeks, but it was about 400Rupies more than normal, so that's ok. The Restaurant next door is ok. We had the lunch buffet and were a bit disappointed. Rather take the thali next time. On leaving we left some stuff in the room, like umbrella and a pair of shoes, as we did not need it them at home. When waiting for the cab, a cleaning guy came running after us, bringing us the stuff. So if you forget something, they will bring it very fast. I really like their service.

Empire Hotel is just 5 minutes walk from Shivajinagar Bus stand or M G Road. It is located in a convenient location. I stayed in Delux Double Non-AC room. The room was neat and clean. Only concern if you are a vegetarian is the presence of Non-Veg restaurant in the ground floor of the Hotel.
