“not many women around”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

i stayed for 5 nights in a non ac mini-suite in october 2013. the room and the bathroom were big and clean with a strong smell of mothballs. warm water was there for the most of the time. even though the railway station and the bus station are quiet close (you still need a riksha) the hotel is in a rather quiet area. around the hotel there are many birds (even though the hotel tries to keep them away with nets) who make quiet a bit of noise and irritating sounds. i saw very few women around in the hotel, the in-house restaurant and the close by surrounding (no female staff, very few female guests) which was a bit irritating as a solo women traveler.

Rooms are clean but Toilets Flushing System is not effective to clean the Toilets.
Toilet cleaning is average. You can get hot water round the clock. They have changed bed sheet everyday. Do not expect body wash and shampoos..

Hotel Kanishka is a good mid-range budget hotel located at the calm area of busy Gandhinagar. It is less than a kilometer away from Bangalore railway station and the main bus station-Kempegowda Bus stand. It will be ideal for those who are looking for economical, but good standard place to stay close to the heart of the city. Single standard AC room will cost about Rs. 1500 and the check-out time is 24:00 hrs. Given its long standing reputation as one of the oldest and most popular hotels in Bangalore, Kanishka Hotel means different things to different people, another reason why it gets a remarkable number of repeat customers. Rooms are well spacious, clean with simple furnishings. The decor is minimal inclusive of twin beds for double occupancy, a small coffee table and chair rests on the side. Attached bathrooms are well maintained with hot/cold running water. Room amenities include cable TV, telephone and round the clock room service. There is a good vegetarian restaurant at the basement also. This simple good hotel is strategically located in a centre place, which is out of chaotic noisy traffic, ideal for short trip.

I recommend this hotel if you are looking for low-medium budget and value.

The only issue with the hotel is the internet connectivity. They do not have any!!!

It is at a nice location which is quite. Has a good travel desk and is willing to help at any time.

If you need anything from outside, the staff is happy to bring it in for you at any hour.

We were on an educational trip to Banglore so as students we needed some economical but a good standard hotel for stay. We were indeed lucky to have spotted Kanishka Hotel.

Kanishka is situated very near to the Banglore station so it was very easy to reach it. The service staff too were very supportive in guiding us the way as we were first timers to the city. So for us it was the most comfortable hotel to reach and stay.

The rooms were pretty clean and good as per the details described so there was nothing that we felt was a miss. clean bathrooms, good beds and offcourse good cooling conditions.

Although Kanishka is near to the railway station the hotel is situated in the interior. silent and noise free green surrounding which makes the stay more likable. The rooms are connected with satellite TVs and the hotel too has some leisure providing indoor activities one can enjoy in the evening.

The hotel has a good architect beautiful to sum it all. The price of rooms are also in par to the service provided i would say the price at times seems cheap. We were even lucky to have the delicious breakfast that was provided to us in the morning there are free amenity although just a great gesture from the hotel service to some it all.

The hotel restaurant is not that upto mark as the hotel service and amenities are. but one can get good and tasty food here and around Kanishka. It is very easy to commute to places of interest like malls and local restaurants from kanishka as they are just a few blocks away.

To some it all I would say Kanishka is a excellent place to stay if you are planning a short trip for business or academic purpose as it is conveniently reachable. highly affordable with great service and good rooms and amenities.
