Visited Bangalore this year for a short vacation. I have heard many great things about this hotel from a great number of people, so I decided to spend a week in one of the the royal club rooms.
From the moment you arrive, this hotel is nothing but extraordinary. The design is stunning, reflecting palaces of old. The interior decor is extremely tasteful and the lobby is very impressive.
I was fortunate enough to stay in one of the Royal Club rooms, situated in the top two floors of the hotel. This included a personalised butler service and access to the club lounge. The club lounge offered complimentary breakfast, high tea, cocktails (from 1800-2100) and had a billiards room with adjacent cigar lounge on the top floor.
The distinguishing feature of all Leela properties is the service. And this hotel does not disappoint. The staff are extremely vigilant to your needs, without being intrusive (an art other hotels have yet to master). The whole Royal Club is run by the butlers and they are very efficient, conscientious and intelligent. They quickly adapt to your requirents and nothing is too much trouble.
The room itself was very well appointed and the bed was comfortable. The twice daily housekeeping ensured no clutter and the turn down service was great. My only criticism would be the wifi service. Wifi is charged extra (at this price it really should be thrown in), it was slow and the reception in the room was patchy at best. Wifi reception in the club lounge was satisfactory.
The spa and gym were good. The gym was very well equiped and the spa was a very relaxing experience. There are a whole host of therapies available and the steam rooms and jacuzi were great.
To summise, I had a rather splendid week in this truly amazing place, and I will definately stay here whenever I visit Bangalore.
