“True hospitality combined with flair and style!”
Reviewed 17 January 2011

I had such an immersive experience of the famed hospitality of the
Indian hotel industry at Purple Lotus that I simply had to write in!
Everyone there really puts in their best effort to make you feel
warmly welcomed, so that you immediately experience that comfort zone
which travellers look for. Also, the superb architecture and stylish
interiors give you a resort-like experience right in the centre of
town with its calm water bodies and open spaces. Outstanding!
I already had a great price of Rs3500/- for one week's stay on an early bird book in, but with an inherent love of the great bargain asked for a further
discount on check out...I don't know whether it was my friendly smile
or sheer cheek that did it, but my room was further discounted - and
with absolute courtesy too! These people are very upfront and go that
extra ten miles for their guests in every which way. In fact, I would
actually be very surprised to find any bad reviews on them. My hotel
of choice any and every single time when in Bangalore!

I am very happy to read your fabulous review. As a boutique hotel, we attempt to provide a personal service that cannot be achieved at larger chains. Once again, I am glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to your return.

The blend of spectacular service & friendliness of the staff, the unique design and its quiet location make this hotel a fantastic choice for a stay in Bangalore. The few services a small hotel cannot offer compared to a huge 5* hotel "factory" are easily offset by the personal care and dedication of the staff. Again, anytime - hopefully soon!

The hotel is overpriced compared to Melange Astris which is around similar rate but great. We were told the room rate was 4500 rupees per night and when we checked out it became 6000 rupees per night. Also get the rates in writing or chose other hotels which offer better rates and better class off peak. We will not be going there again.

I am very sorry to read your negative review. We pride ourself on transparency and honesty with all our clients. As a boutique hotel, we find that this is a necessity for survival. We would never up-charge a customer or increase our rate. We do state clearly upon booking that there is a mandatory luxury tax and service charge imposed by the government. This is the case for all Bangalore hotels. If you would like to discuss further please feel free to email me and we will do everything in our power to rectify any miscommunication or to make your outlook on the Puprle Lotus a positive one: krupa@purplelotus.in .

Thank you,

Our first night in India after a long trip, and we couldn't have been happier. A really lovely, spacious room with everything you could possibly ask for. Great staff who don't fuss or fawn, but are always there when you need them. Breakfast was good - my husband chose the free continental, I chose the very nice Indian cooked for a tiny price. Absolutely fantastic location close to everything but extremely quiet, this boutique hotel has a lot to be proud of. We would definitely stay again if ever in Bangalore. It was just perfect!

This modern and stylish boutique hotel is a haven of tranquillity and well-being worth every cent. We stayed two nights in October 2010 and much appreciated its open architecture, great style and very friendly and helpful staff. We loved it, just go and experience it!

After staying in a not so nice place, my partner and I were desperate to find a clean comfortable environment to stay for 11 days. We read Tripadvisor comments and gave it a shot. We absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Everyone was friendly and helpful and so lovely. We felt so comfortable and welcome at Purple Lotus. All staff are happy to help you with your stupid touristy questions and I would deffinately come back here if I was to return to Bangalore. Fair enough people write the breakfast is so so- perhaps they could work on that, but we didn't get fussed over it because some plain toast and coffee and a nice way to start our day after so many curries and spices. Don't let the breakfast be a turn away point- there are plenty of nice cafes very close by.
