“Central, clean, good value Accomodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013

I stayed in Richmond Suites for a family occasion for 3 days and received good hospitality, a clean apartment with good facilities and excellent money value for central location. The apartment was spacious and clean, with usual things and microwave, fridge and good cable TV. They need to replace bottle water each day but otherwise we were very happy. Balcony at the room looks out to beautiful flowers on trees and greenery, like in countryside villa and is v quiet area for city. We will stay again for next visit.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to face towards front so being on quiet road, noise is minimum, save for odd car ho...

My review is exactly the opposite of the other review, and since there are now only 2 reviews, I understand that’s going to be very confusing for the readers
If you want a fairly clean room at reasonable rate, that too in city like Bangalore, then its acceptable. The house/ building is in deep interior; very difficult to locate for a non-Bangalorean. Though we were constantly in touch with the reception, yet we just went round and round in the area for quite some time. They will tell you that its near the Post Office, but the problem is that hardly anyone knows where the post office is !! Its better to tell the people that its in Richmond town, 2 streets behind the Karnataka Haj committee. Don't expect any signage or display with the name scribbled Richmond Suites. It’s a flat in a building probably owned by some NRI, where the common area and the lift lobby had a terrible stink of rice gone sour, or something like it. We were led to a furnished flat, and were given a room inside. Construction is very good, and the room is as clean as an unoccupied house can be( not sparkling clean). The receptionist, or the person with whom we were in touch was reachable through phone only ; we never met in person.
I had booked the room through booking.com, which showed the rate without including the taxes ( they better include it to show the final amount), and suddenly in the morning, the rates changed with the reason- “the room that you had booked was not available so we gave you the flat instead”. Now how was that “booked room” supposed to look like is not clear, because even in the flat, everything except our room was locked !!! It was still only a room for us.
Finally we agreed at a rate slightly higher than what I had booked the room for. Forgot to add, its supposed to be a Service Apartment. There is only one bed and four chairs with a table inside the room, and apart from that one towel. Don't expect any toiletteries or even drinking water in the apartment. The room is large, but somewhat stuffy. We never tried the AC in the room.
There is no place to eat in the vicinity; not even a tea stall. We walked for around 15 minutes to find a restaurant where we had dinner. Offcourse, they do have brochures from where you can order the food. Atleast drinking water bottles could have been provided.
We had asked for a taxi to the airport, which was promptly booked( Meru taxi) but much ahead of the time we had asked for because of which we had to pay huge sum of waiting charges.
The person did not pick the phone at any time at the time while we were leaving, so we ended up paying the rent to the night watchman !! Which also means there is no receipt system, probably.
The only saving grace was, that the person( Mir Abbas) was in touch even before we checked in, always promptly responding to mails and queries and was quite helpful on phone.
Its supposed to have free Wi-Fi in the area, but we never tested that.

Room Tip: We didn't have a choice, because there is no one to show the property except a little kid who ha...
