I stayed at the Zuri for six nights during a business trip, my first visit to India. The hotel is clean and tidy, the food good (with a wide buffet selection at breakfast and dinner). I didn't try any of the other restaurants. It sits near a busy road and although convenient for offices in Whitefield, there's really nowhere to walk to.
I would have given this hotel four, maybe five stars but for one thing: some of the staff. Most are very pleasant, personable and helpful. However, the guy who runs the hotel shop is annoyingly over-the-top. Get within 20 feet of the shop and he's all over you like a rash. Worse was the guy at the front door. On arrival, he took our suitcases on a trolley to our rooms. I took mine into my room and shut the door whilst he helped my colleague. Moments later, there was a knock at the door and there he was, insisting he had to show me my room. When done, he stood there, clearly waiting for a tip. I had no money, was extremely tired and this was the last thing I wanted. Later in the week, the same guy pretty much pulled a bag out of my hand, insisting he had to take it for scanning, but he was clearly only interested in a tip - again. It may be a western view, but for me this isn't acceptable and not what I expect in a higher-grade hotel. Shame, because this aside I liked the Zuri very much.
