“Simply the best”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

To Andrew and all the staff at The Leela Palace Kempinski Bangalore.
I would like to thank you all very much for looking after me so well over the last 8 months during which time I had the opportunity and pleasure to have stayed with you for 29 out of 35 weeks over three visits.
You have a beautiful hotel with excellent rooms and facilities (including the best pool in town), wonderful and attentive staff and great food. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff.
The staff treated me like a member of family not simply just a guest. I would like to thank them all very much but would like to make special mention of Arvind and Pema who took such great care of me since day one. They all know how special they are and how much I appreciated everything they did for me during my stays.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Bangalore.
Kind regards to all the staff.

Stayed at this hotel for few days, while on business. It was like stepping back into time but with modern amenities. Had a very nice room, with a patio, that overlooked the garden.
Service was attentive and efficient. Had to use the business center, briefly, again, very attentive.
Hotel has great public spaces, very relaxing.
Didn't use any of the other facilities, since i was still jet lagged, but definitely a great place to unwind and decompress, away from the noise of Bangalore.

If you can afford, and are willing to pay for, the rates of the Leela Palace Kempinski Bangalore (a big "if"), then you will not be disappointed.

Everything works well. The air conditioning is efficient and totally silent. Internet is fast and trouble-free. Room service is prompt and affords an almost unbelievable array of choices. The lounge has tasty treats and a good selection of drinks (for example an Ardbeg 10 yo, a Whisky rarely found in "generalist" bars).

Only caveat, the distance from the airport. The hotel is located on "old airport road" and this does not mean "old road to the airport", it means "road to the old airport". The new airport (where all international flights arrive) is at least an hour away.

Room Tip: Hotel is about 1 hour away from the airport.

My first impression on the hotel was about how huge & vast the place is. The lobby decor exudes grandeur while the rooms are likewise luxuriously comfortable. The breakfast spread was amazing and loved how attentive the staff are. They remembered my previous day requests and immediately asked if I wanted to order the same. In fact the whole hotel staff were very polite and makes one feel like an important guest at all times. Highly recommended for travellers willing to splurge.

Room Tip: 4th floor for amazing city views

stayed at this hotel accompanying my husband who was on a business trip. I spent the time relaxing by the pool! The only thing I would have to say against the hotel is they dont seem to understand poolside service very well. They come out straight away with towels, and sometimes water, (which is complimentary. the water tended to depend on who was on duty. though you got it if you asked)
by end of week service was more available, and they had improved brilliantly!
the staff in general were attentive, smiling, and couldnt do enough for us, and many a happy moment was spent in the library bar, with staff looking after our every need.
special thanks to Arri, Mandeep, Deepesh.

I travel to India 3 or 4 times per year for business and have stayed in many different hotels. The Leela Palace is by far my favorite place to stay. It is always a consistent experience - excellent rooms with everything a business traveler needs.

The hotel lounges/restaurants have beautiful outside seating for entertaining clients. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Bangalore.
