We arrived in the hotel as a family of 6 people, having booked 3 rooms. The rooms we had were on the second floor, and they were effectively cooled by the AC and were on the whole, excellent. Beds were comfortable and clean. Bathrooms needed a bit of finishing, as there were some seemingly permanent ink stains in one of the rooms, but overall excellent, once again. Floor carpets in all the rooms and bathrooms was left to be desired.
Room had basic amenities, such as a kettle, coffee/tea facilities, electric points. Room upkeep was excellent, and the cleaning staff were friendly and were happy to assist with problems such as the room cards losing their charge.
Breakfast was complementary all the days we stayed. Idli, Sambar, Dosas, Avalakki/Vermicelli Oggarane, Chutneys, Stir Fried Vegetables and a small range of non-veg items were on offer everyday for breakfast. The food was excellent, simple and delicious. The dosas and also omlettes, were made on demand.
We once had room service, of some Biriyani and a Mixed Veg Curry, which was served in decent portion sizes, and also was delicious.
Internet was an issue, as the server had "crashed" throughout the time we were staying. Even so, the whole system of accessing the WIFI seemed very complicated. There was however, a convenient small room in the lobby with a single PC, from which we could access internet.
The experience was peaceful, with no noise etc.
The hotel is close to many shopping areas, Commercial Street in particular, as well as the Eye Hospital and many other places of interest for tourists.
Lastly, the hotel offers an extended checkout, which proved to be VERY convenient for us. We were charged a fair 1000 rupees extra for an extended checkout, for one room. This is ideal if you shop for a day, and wish to refresh in the evening before leaving Bangalore.
