My business stay at Melody Inn was actually a last minute selection. Since i travel to Bangalore quite often, i get to try out new joints that are value for money. I hate splurging money on so called start hotels that actually rip you off in price and taxes. Initially when i selected Melody Inn, i knew that it was a property that had changed hands and the management was new. However, when i checked in, i was pleasantly surprised. The room size as much bigger than a start hotel and the inroom facilities were just the same as many business class hotels, a micowave, coffee pot, wifi, TV, news paper etc. The bed was comfortable, the AC ( a split unit) was working fine, the flooring neat and clean. The interiors too were quite pleasant. The restroom was clean.
The biggest drawback in terms of physical infrastructure at this place is that it does not have a proper Indian restaurant. They have a makeshift restaurant where very limited choice of breakfast items are served, typically, toast, jam and butter and one Indian dish. The hotel does have a chinese restaurant and the local staff encourage in-room dining in case one is not interested in the chinese restaurant. The food, made to order, was quite delicious and the portion size too was quite a bit. The other drawbacks are running hot water and automatic generator back up for the elevator. It looks like they switch on the hot -water boiler in the evenings on request.
However, notwithstanding these limitations, i had an enjoyable stay at Melody Inn. The senior management folks of Melody Inn do take the effort to accommodate requests that guests may have.
The location of the hotel is quite okay and is accessible by bus, threewheelers, cabs. it is also a short drive away from Whitefield Forum Mall.
I would certainly recommend this as a very good option, especially if one is looking at a long duration stay in bangalore, individuals and corporates alike. It is certainly good value for money.
