I really like the Taj. It is a true oasis from the chaos that is Bangalore with fantastic gardens to relax in and generally a very relaxed feel to the place. The staff are great - not overbearing like in a lot of Indian hotels but very competent and happy to help. The rooms are fine, big with big balconies to relax. I would just say that some are a little tired but everything works.
One complaint. They forgot to charge me for my airport transfer so emailed me to ask for my credit card details. I have no issue with this. But I didn't reply immediately as I was travelling. In less than 24 hours I received another email begging for my details and was told that they would doc the wages of the staff if I didn't provide the details immediately. Whether this was true or not I didn't like being treated like this.
Anyway, a small issue with what overall was a very very good stay - My 2nd time there.
