I was impressed by the meticulous attention to detail and courtesy that was afforded to the guests. From the moment I walked in at 5 AM, off a flight, I was greeted and offered refreshment before starting the checkin process. As to the aesthetics, the hotel and rooms are gorgeous. The room was spotless, as were all the public areas of the hotel.and everything was laid out with precision. The hotel food was good, and they were extremely accomodating when I asked for small deltas off the menu.

This hotel excelled in the little things that truly differentiate. For example, I had forgotten to pack a travel shaving cream. I figured I would order or buy one but had not gotten to it on day one in Bangalore. Housekeeping saw that and the Housekeeping Supervisor himself (Singaravelan J.) knocked on my door the next morning to offer me a new mini-can of Gillette (matching my razor) since it had been noted by housecleaning that I was out, as well as toothpaste since they were concerned that my travel sized toothpaste would not suffice.

the only downside to the hotel was the noisy throughfare, which in Bangalore means that horns start blaring by 6 AM. On the bright side, if you closed the inner door to the room entryway, the sound was muffled excellently. It took me the first night to figure that one out.

Room Tip: When you come in jet lagged, remember to close the door to the entryway.

My husband and I recently stayed at The Oberoi in Bangalore and loved it. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are beautiful. The deluxe room was comfortable, clean, nicely appointed, and has a beautiful balcony. Most important, though, is the service. You really do feel welcome at a hotel like The Oberoi. Everyone is so friendly and really makes it clear that they want you to have the best stay possible while you're there. The service is not over-bearing in any way. It's just friendly. There is also no pressure to tip each person working in the hotel. You just tip at the end and they all share it. Also important to know that you can drink the tap water in the hotel. That's not true everywhere in Bangalore, even in rather nice hotels in the city.

There are 4 main restaurants at The Oberoi. We ate at three of them during out stay and the food was excellent in all of them. The breakfast buffet has plenty of options (Indian, European and American). If you don't want the breakfast buffet, they have a nice breakfast beyond beyond that. Loved our dinner at the Chinese restaurant, and we also had great lunches (Indian and non-Indian food) at the Polo Club (great outdoor seating). As always, service was fantastic at all restaurants.

The pool area is beautiful. We were staying at at time when the hotel was not crowded so it was never difficult for us to get a lounge chair out at the pool. You can't hear the noise of busy Bangalore at all in this area of the hotel.

As some people have mentioned, the noise of the streets in Bangalore is undeniable... constant honking from sun up to sun down; but the double-door in the rooms shuts out most of the noise. The honking also does cease a bit after the evening rush hour so we had no trouble sleeping at all.

If you're familiar with Bangalore, you know that there's no walking anywhere from your hotel. Get a good driver and you'll be set.

This is one of those rare places where it is hard to fault anything. The property is beautifully maintained and an oasis shielding you from the chaos of the outside world. The gardens are peaceful and relaxing. Rooms and bathrooms (with Mr Steam) are spacious, spotlessly clean. The pool is super. Food is wonderful and the breakfast buffet was excellent - miles ahead of any buffet offered by other five star properties at which I have stayed. But all this on its own is not enough to make a great hotel. It is the staff who really make the experience memorable. Like other reviewers, I agree that Oberoi has incredibly well-trained staff. They ANTICIPATE needs and nothing is too much trouble. Staff is very courteous and friendly and I enjoyed interacting with them. Guests at the Oberoi in Bangalore are made to feel very special and that staff find it a privilege to be able to make our stays comfortable. Oberoi Bangalore has much of which to be proud.

Room Tip: Any room here would be wonderful

I stayed here for a week during a business trip. While travelling to India, I always try to pick a Leela, Oberoi or a top-end Taj hotel. In Bangalore I would rate this hotel second (after Taj West-End). All facilities in the room were great, very good personalized service (i was greeted using my name every morning several times and was informed nicely about cars waiting etc.). Breakfast was according to Indian top-end standards (which is not the best on a worldwide scale). Dinner buffet extraordinary. Hotel setting, even though in the middle of hectic Bangalore, was very peaceful and quiet.

The first thing that will catch your attention when you get to this property is how did they manage to create so much space in such a prime area, the pool, lawns around it etc. is amazing and cuts you off completely from the hustle and bustle of the MG Road. The staff are extremely friendly and courteous, be it in the restaurant, reception, business centre or anywhere around the property. During my 2 days stay at no point did I feel something was not working for me, whenever there was a problem the hotel staff stepped in to sort it out.
The room is good, the second door in the lobby stops all the noise from MG road, the balconies are amazing with its greenery and views of the pool. What I did not like about the room was the lack of curtains which were replaced with sliding doors. While this may have been done for cancelling the nose from outside, it makes your room look like a bunker. That is the reason I rate this hotel "Very Good" and not Excellent.

We had a very good experience at the Oberoi Bangalore. This was the first time I had visited an Oberoi property, most of my 5 star stays have been limited to Taj in the past. The staff was extremely well groomed, food was good and location very convinient. There was a 'Adigas' restaurant right opposite which offered some cheaper food options as well :) My kid started having breathing difficulties 1 night during my stay and the staff really went out of their way to help.

After 15 hours or more of travel, walking into the Oberoi in Bangalore was like a dream. My mom and I were incredibly tired and jet-lagged but from the minute we stepped into the airport's arrival terminal, we felt the hotel's dedicated attention and out-of-this-world service. Hotel's staff was waiting for us in the airport and we were in the airport and whisked away to the hotel by our amazing driver. Once there we were greeted with fresh fruit juice and escorted to our room for the most painless check-in process we've experienced to date. At 4:30 am we felt like the whole hotel was up and ready to help us. With dawn we were able to appreciate just how beautiful the Oberoi is. My mom couldn't believe it. Our breakfast was beyond delicious and as we prepared to continue with our travels, the staff made sure we had everything we needed. They helped us get a SIM card for our cell phone and contact lens solution we had forgotten back home. In short, it was truly extraordinary. Our stay was way too short to enjoy everything the Oberoi has to offer. To us, it was worth every penny.
