“Really nice experience”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Stayed here on work for around 2.5 weeks. Really nice place. very quiet. Spotless rooms. Very good service. Someone is always around to help. the hotel is at the dead end of a small street. Very quiet by any city standards. Breakfast was good too. Several restaurants in walking distance. No problems at all. Will defintely use next time we are in Bangalore.

Purple lotus is an excellent boutique suite located at lavelle road and have a best of neighborhood. It is surrounded by all the happening joints in Bangalore like UB city, Sunnys, Beire club, skkye lounge etc. The roof top gives a beautiful view of UB city. The rooms are extremely spacious with excellent decor. The service is top notch too. Its the best for travelers and for those who want to have a peaceful stay within city.

Room Tip: Queen room is spacious

I am a frequent visitor to Bangalore. I stayed in many hotels in that area and finally settled with Purple lotus. Once I found it, I am staying there for all of my visits. It is a very good deal for that price.

Rooms are nice and clean. It is quite amazing to stay at a serene location in the middle of crazy & hectic Bangalore city. It is walkable to quite a few restaurants and UB city as well.

A healthy breakfast is served along with fruits and fruit juices. Recent addition of Idly/vada is a definite plus. Nice restaurant, water fountain over a wall and small pond is cool.

We chose Purple Lotus because of the positive ratings on tripadvisor: it was a perfect choice! The hotel is centrally located, only a ten minure walk to Church Street, but 6th cross Lavelle Road is a quiet side road in a "residential" area. A "coffee day", some small shops and an excellent day spa are within walking distance as well.
The rooms are very spacious with kitchenette and free wifi; the decor is modern stylish. Even for western standards the rooms are exceptionally clean; the staff is very friendly and helpful.
When it comes to value for money, Purple Lotus gets top marks!
(If you take a taxi to the hotel, make sure to have a map or the hotel phone number with you so the driver can ask the hotel staff for directions; most drivers don't know this small hotel.)

my parents and I had the opportunity to re-visit Purple Lotus early June based on our wonderful experience in december last year.I've already given an indepth review last time, so just want to point out a few differences we noticed from our previous stay..

First the good point - the breakfast spread has expanded to include Indian food (idli, vada n sambar) which is a great and much appreciated improvement and they taste great too !! well done.

and now on to the "not so good" - it was quite difficult to get hot water in our shower, we had to make a few repeated requests to room service to set it right. while someone did promptly come, they could not fix the issue immediately (it was a little late in the night). we were eventually able to get hot water, but only after leaving the shower on for about 10-15 minutes !! this was recommended by the staff as well..although it worked, it seems like a mighty waste of water..not sure if this was just an issue in our room..

Apart from the above minor albeit significant flaw, our stay was as comfy and memorable as the last one and we certainly look forward to more stays there in future... :)
