Had a very pleasant stay in Bangalore at the Taj West End. Beautiful setting on former British colonial property transformed into hotel surrounded by trees and gardens. The flute player serenading breakfasters is a nice touch. I hesitate to say, but only downside is too much staff -- always popping in the room and checking in. They are all really helpful, though. I would stay again.

At Taj West End - time stands still.

When you enter the tree lines drive way - time stops and the main gate.

The Taj West End is full of surprises. First, it is not a modern hotel, but a society of buildings and gardens with accomodations ranging from cathedral- ceilinged rooms in the old building to lavishly roomy suites peppered around the property.

Honestly, staying at the West End was overall one of the old world charm !!!

Flying back from a round trip to India we spent our last days at the Taj West End in Bangalore. It is a superb hotel and we had the feeling of being in a real garden, a garden that is left over when Bangalore was called garden city which it is nowadays no longer. Everything around us was green, full of flowers and we enjoyed it. The room we had was on two floors, the staircases were a little bit too steep. We enjoyed our stay.

Only there for one night but could have stayed longer!
They could not do enough for us to make our short stay comfortable and memorable.
The Blue Bar is definitely the place to be in Bagalore!

I recently spent 9 days in Bangalore for work and, even though it was a little far from the office, chose to stay at the Taj West End. The sprawling property, encompassing over 20 acres, lends the feeling of being at a vacation resort. The colonial-style buildings are charming and comfortable. But, what sets this hotel apart is the warmth and quality of the service. Every possible need is attended to with charm and aplomb. The service feels neither forced, nor too obtrusive, and is the blueprint that all hotels should follow. After long hours at the office and a hectic drive back, basking in the luxury of the Taj West End made it feel like I was on vacation.

The dining options are a little limited, which becomes somewhat more apparent when staying there as long as I did. The breakfast buffet each morning was a great way to start the day, but the selections did not change at all. Blue Ginger, the Vietnamese restaurant onsite, offered a wide variety of delicious and authentic dishes. The open air restaurant itself is also quite beautiful and lavishly decorated, further creating the sense of being on vacation.

While there are a number of 5 star hotels in Bangalore to choose from (The Oberoi, The Leela, for instance), you need not look any farther than the Taj West End. You will not be disappointed.

I visited Bangalore for a day in October, and stayed in Taj West End. Unlike most 5-star hotels in big cities, this hotel is not a high rise building; instead, it is built on an expansive 28 (or may be 40) acres of land, with most rooms on only ground or first level - which gives an exotic feel in the middle of the city. The icing on the cake are the rooms - very spacious, big bathrooms and the roofs are quite high. Loved the short stay there. However, the spread they have in their buffets (lunch and b/f) is quite limited.
