“umhhh.. OK.. but not Good enough..”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

This hotel is at best should be around 2.5 stars category..

Stayed here for few nights in October,11..

Hotel & rooms are trendy.. Booked for a King Bed (got a confirmation too) but got a room with 2 queen beds!! They took a while to figure out our reservation when we arrived.. But people are quite helpful... Service is good..

The breakfast area.. I mean the restaurant... appears to be the one usually we see at Ibis in Europe.. very minimalistic.. Ofcourse, food is not bad though..

There are better hotels in the vicinity, at around the same price point and I frankly will not stay here..unless I am forced to do so..

Recently I performed my daughter's wedding, wedding reception, Mehendi and sangeet at Hotel Aloft Bangalore. It was by far the best and the most colorful event of my life. There were about 80 guests form the groom's side who had come from various parts of the world. All the guests stayed at the hotel for 3 days and more and everyone of them appreciated the comfort, luxury and the excellent food and service provided by the hotel. The sangeet / mehendi event and the cocktail dinner conducted at the wxyz bar of the hotel was a total sellout. The food and service were excellent. The next day we had the reception and wedding in which 400+ guests had attended and again everyone was very very pleased with the arrangements , the ambience, the high level and quality of service of the hotel staff and above all the quality of food ( especially the sumptuous and tasty malabar fish curry ). I for one 'am fully satisfied by the courteous service, food, ambience of the hotel and I can recommend that if any of you reading this review is looking to conduct your daughter's or son's wedding in Bangalore....Aloft is the destination for you...

Positives : Modern, Trendy Design, good rooms, FREE WI-FI, 42" LCD TV, all amenities, toileteries, good breakfast, good food etc. etc.
Negatives : Nothing as such.

I stayed in Aloft Whitefield hotel Bengaluru for 1 night in January 2012. Since I had work in Whitefield, i chose this hotel as it was near to where my meetings were. But if you are on a holiday, then this might not be the best choice as it is away from the city center.
When i reached the hotel, the exterior was pretty dark and i thought the power had gone out. this is one area of improvement.
However, the lobby was decently lit. It is a nice spacious place with modern furniture, billiards table, coffee counter etc. Check in was smooth.
The elevators (3 of them) were all lit up in different fluorescent colors each. Green, Pink, Red. Very cool.
The corridors were wide and again lit up nicely.
The room was decently spacious. It had all the amenities including hair dryer, bathrobe, bathroom slippers, shoe shine, ironing board, tea coffee maker. Everything was well laid out, along with a welcome letter already there in the room.
42" LCD was great and you could hook up your ipod or USB device etc through a dock.
Bed and pillows could have been softer.
There is no bath tub but a nice shower cubicle.
I ordered food from the room service, which was quick and food was pretty nice.
Breakfast was also excellent with lots of choices.

I would definitely come back here, assuming they don't jack up their rates exorbitantly, which many hotels do once they become popular.

Room Tip: IF you are going there for the first time, take directions as not all cab drivers know of this hotel...

All the people, from security until general manager, were always with a smile and sense of helpfulness. I hilight Mr. Ravi, a nice and charming taxi driver, that on the road to airport, explain to me in a remarkable English speech, a little bite of the amazing and "Incredible India". OUTSTANDING!

First stay at Aloft and it exceeded our expectations. Hotel personnel were particularly impressive in their helpfulness and genuine friendliness. The room was very clean, modern and comfortable with a fantastic shower. The manager approved a very late check-out time (6pm) for us at no charge to accommodate our late departure from Bangalore airport. The food was quite good with broad selection and interesting variety, and the dining staff was very customer focused. Our only suggestion would be to redo the seat cushions in the dining area -- they are overdue for a change. The pool and pool area looked great but we didn't use it. The hotel's location is in the rapidly-growing IT area called Whitefield, somewhat remote and isolated from Bangalore City, but that did not matter to us.

Room Tip: Face the pool if possible.

I stayed in here for my official trip to Bangalore, they provide excellent service, was a wonderful experience. The staffs were really helpful to get a cab and gave a valued tips about Bangalore, and they always remembered my preferences. Rooms, service and food were outstanding. Didn't get time to spend in pool, outlook was hygienic and brilliant. I will prefer next time and recommend my friends and colleagues to opt Aloft, Bangalore.

Room Tip: I prefer top floor for vertical view of the city.
