Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

My first stay here was good. Made the mistake of coming back. For some godforsaken reason the hot water valves are shut every night. One has to complain everytime for hot water and wait for atleast half hour before the new staff figures things out.Banging doors, noises from the next door construction site keep you up the whole night. Absolute nightmare.

We are regular guests at this little boutique hotel and have stayed here quite a few times because it is centrally located and good value for money.The rooms are spacious with wifi, 24 hour power back up,security ,rooftop terrace,business center,spa etc. Cons..no complimentary bottled water,limited variety of food (specially for vegetarians),hot water not very effective especially in winter and my husband found the mattress a bit uncomfortable.Mr. Arumugam is always pleasant and friendly and books a room for us even at short notice. The staff are helpful.Overall a nice place to stay.

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.
