“First touch with SFO”
Reviewed 5 September 2010

I frequently travel to various cities in India for business purposes and Bangalore is the place I often find myself in. I have generally stayed in Baskar One or Hotel SFO.

When it comes to SFO, at the first glance, one might not appreciate the access as it lies on the corner of a busy cross-road. However, once inside, the expanse of the entrance room is breathtaking. Generally, business class hotels tend to have a narrow lobby with a reception beside the elevators and an optional restaurant. But here, it was just a huge hall with the reception in the middle.

It was a very warm welcome from their end as I was ushered into the room, what greeted me was the theme of cable-cars that is omnipresent in the entire building. Cable Car is the vegetarian restaurant and the various parts of the car feature in your room and in the lobbies. For example, the typical car bell adorns the wall against your bed.

That the theme gives the hotel a retro-style is extremely eye-catching. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are even more glamorous. The sitting desk, the visitor sofa and other furniture appear to be just in the correct places.

There are two restaurants - Cable Car and Pier 39, the latter inclusive of a bar. Ambiance of Pier 39 is akin to the lounge at Hard Rock Cafe outlets and though its not as spacious as one would like, you just cannot stop yourself from swinging to the beat.

Once back to my room, the bed felt so good. The good night's sleep made my next morning a pleasure. All in all, a nice place to be in. It is one of those hotels standing just between a stereotype business hotel and a luxury one. Thumbs up from me!!

Reviewed 13 May 2010

I've stayed here three times. The first time, the hotel had just opened, everything was new and they were still getting to grips with the catering side of things.

After being open for over a year, everything now works really well.

The place and rooms are spotlessly clean.

Staff friendly and helpful.

There are two restaurants, "The Cable Car" on two floors and "Pier 39" on the top floor. The Cable Car is veg. only and is popular with families, it can get a bit crowded and very noisy.

Try the Pier 39 on the top floor - it is less crowded than the "Cable Car" and you can eat both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food there. (I wish they'd turn down the bass on the piped music though.)

Food is good at both restaurants for a small hotel.

Free wifi.

As with most city-centre hotels there is no pool or gym.

In most major cities, a quality small hotel like this would be completely booked most of the time. I cannot understand why this one is not. I am not sure I want to post this review, in case I add to its popularity and I cannot get a room next time.
