“A Taj by any other name is still a Taj”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Second time I stayed at the Gateway , Bangalore. This hotel was earlier a propah Taj hotel before the management decided to reserve the TAJ brand for luxury hotels and this property was relabelled as the Gateway.
I have stayed here in both its avatars and am happy to say that it has lost none of its charms and the price per night is just right for the location and facilities. The beds are nice and firm and give a good night sleep. The bathroom is modern and loved the shower especially after a tiring day. Each room comes with a personal DVD player .. what else can one want !!
Taj hotels are know for their food and the Gateway does not dissapoint. Breakfast spread is quite good and apart from the usual eggs n breads , they also have a hot dosa / idly corner.
I save the best for the last ..... Gateway bangalore is located right next to Brigade road , which is a shopping mecca and you can get real deals there with almost all global brands. its just a short walk away and nothing like relaxing at the hotel pool after some hectic shopping.
The group has another hotel nearby Vivanta by Taj but more expensive I hear . The Gateway is my address while I am in Bangalore, no questions about it.

You pay 7200 for a night for a small room with no bathtub. A shame really! It would have been nice to have some guards at the road as well to assist the guests in finiding local taxi or transport since its not always that one uses Hotel cars.

Value for your money, around $ 100 for a very decent room with all amenities, heart of the city,can move to your desired place easily as centrally located, very very close to the famous "Brigade Road and M G Road.

I was on a bussiness trip and I reached really reached the hotel totally exhausted, had a very quick check in and was in my room within 10 minutes. It is really a very quiet place as i fall asleep and got up only morning. The breakfast was really good as they have both continental and regional dishes. will come back to this hotel whenever I travel and needs to spend a night in this beautiful garden city

it was a decent hotel keeping the gateway tag in mind. the food at karavalli restaurant was excellent and service too. the rooms are small, meant for corporate guests and not family. no space for third person extra bed.the room service was okay and toiletries are good quality. you can stay for couple of nights but i found bit too expensive. the USP is the location. just in the middle of the shopping hub.

Nice hotel to stay in. I stayed there on a few client visits in Bangalore and I must admit that while the property was not as big and magnificent like some other Taj brand hotels, it was quite good for no-frills, business stay. The staff was really nice and professional.

Also close to Bangalore Central mall and hence, a good option to shop for, close to the hotel. Business center/meeting room was a bit cramped though and such facilities can be expanded.
