“Great Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

I stood here for 2 nights and can say it is absolutely brilliant.

Not many guests, the staff takes great care, help where ever you need help and are really friendly.

The rooms are huge, separate bathroom, wifi (working!!) aircon+fan.

At these rates simply unbeatable! I 100% recommend this place.

Second stay at this little hotel & will not be the last. Situated just off Lavelle it is just a small walk from MG & Brigade Roads shopping area and close to UB City entertainment precinct. 

Hotel is on a gated property manned 24/7 by security. It is positioned at the end of side street off Lavelle. 

Our early morning check-in was trouble free as I negotiated half day rates for early check-in and check-out for the brief 39hr Bangalore stay.

The studio rooms are a very generous size with a large bed, table/chairs and a freestanding glass office desk. The polished concrete floor has a good effect in this open style studio room. The separate bathroom/toilet was also sizable and we'll equipped. 

Breakfast is served in the open courtyard on the ground floor. It is has water ponds on both sides full of beautiful purple lotus plants that flower during the day & close at night. Certainly a relaxing & peaceful breakfast environment. In my opinion this area is the best feature of the hotel - make sure you make the extra time to enjoy it. Hot breakfast is freshly cooked. Cereal/fruit & drinks available from the buffet style table.

Hotel doesn't have a pool but does have a rooftop lounge area with tables/chairs & sun umbrellas. Great area to catch up with friends or just to relax away from the busy city.

Also have previously stayed nearby at Oakwood Prestige at UB City but is much more expensive (at least 2-3 times the cost of Purple Lotus). Work paid for Oakwood stay though. Value for money & location I much prefer Purple Lotus and it is for that reason that I will stay at Purple Lotus on future Bangalore vacation visits.

Cute hotel that feels more like having your own apartment in Bangalore. Staff is very nice and the setting is very serene. A little difficult for taxi drivers to find but my favorite place to stay in Bangalore!

The hotel is ideally located. It is quite a nice building with a lovely garden. The check-in was quick, the staff was very friendly. I was bumped to a bigger room. The room was high up, with a lot of light. It was beautifully decorated and quite spacious! There was AC and a fan above the bed. The big downside was that the bed sheets were quite dirty.

We booked accommodation for about 10 members of close family, based on reviews from others on tripadvisor and the pictures on the hotel website :) All of my family members were extremely happy with the service provided by the hotel, and raved about their stay. The hotel staff was always ready with a smile and had the best attitude. The central location is an added benefit.

There was a lunch organized there for about 30 people too, and they did a good job of that as well. Overall, extremely satisfied with the service and stay here.
