“Really good hotel”
Reviewed 3 January 2010

I stayed for three nights in December 2009. The Taj West End offered a great experience throughout my stay.

The room was spacious and immaculately kept. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful (particularly those at the travel desk). The breakfast was worthwhile and the restuarant 'Blue Ginger' was really very good.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Everything was just as it should be.

I had the opportunity to be at Taj West End for a full day seminar held there and the whole experience was very nice. Its located near right in front of the Bangalore Race course and the place has many other options close by, but I must say even with them you dont have much choice. This property of Taj is not one of those big high rise buildings but not very claustrophobic either. Its a bit far away from the airport but then the new banglaore airport is 30 km from the main city.

  • Liked — The whole package

Visited hotel in April 2009 during a business trip to Bangalore. Had a great time. Never experienced such a warm welcome in my life. Even had a bit of trouble with my bookings as booking was not confirmed until my arrival but staff out there handled the situation so well that I didn't feel any discomfort at all. Even the manager provided me with refreshments to make me comfortable. The hospitality I received made it an unforgettable experience.

Enter a tranquil, spotless, elegant village-in-a-city where most are there to make your stay ultra comfortable. They are succesful at it. Walk through the parklike surroundings to your room in a villa. Or to the suite I was upgraded to. Rooms with the kind of thoughtful design that avoids 'home away from home' but gives you what you need when away and working hard. Food is great. Elegant Vietnamese, contemporary Indian, 'multi cuisine' around the clock goodies. Too bad that at the Vietnamese restaurant sharp crab shell pieces were in the crab cakes, and a piece of very sharp chicken bone appreared in another dish. The way that was acted upon was very professional. I will be mended by now and cannot be a reason to avoid the restaurant.
This is certainly one of the very best hotels I have stayed in. No need to look further: I will be back.

Absolutely fabulous hotel. Beautiful property - set in a resort style with small 2 storied villas dotting the expansive property. Amazing to enter this oasis of tranquility right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Bangalore.
Service even for Taj standards was an absolute delight. Was met on arrival from the ariport and whisked away to the room for quick and efficient check-in. Front office staff always seemed to know your name and were extremely attentive.
Excellent choice of restaurants with fabulous food. The hotel is certainly pricey but is value for money.
