“Great Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

This hotel is well-kept, well-appointed and well-staffed. We stayed from Tues-Sun so we got a good feel for the hotel. From start to finish my husband and I had an excellent stay. There were little small things the hotel staff did here and there to make you feel welcome and, upon hearing we are newly married, they even sent a lovely, chocolate, heart-shaped cake up to our room with best wishes. Unfortunately we did fall ill for a couple of days during our stay, but again the staff was caring and attentive. They called our room on occasion to ask how we were and if we needed anything. In the hustle and bustle of Bangalore, this place is truly a welcome oasis. I can't say enough about the entire staff and the quality of service at St. Mark's. Also, the week we were there they opened their rooftop terrace where you can have a drink, sit and relax, etc. It offers great views - nice place to see the city from!

This is a late review - I still remember good days in Bangalore last November while I stayed in St. Marks for a week. That was my first trip to India. I wanted a hotel in the city so I can easily access local people and shopping places. This is the one. This is a 5 stars hotel without garden and pool. The room is nice and super clean. Staffs are very friendly. They know how to treat people. Where I would stay next time when visit Bangalore? I know my answer already.

Good hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.

Pros:
+ Good room (a little on the small side. hardly unusual for India but unusual in this price range)
+ Friendly and helpful staff with good English skills.
+ Excellent location
+ Walking distance to UB City, Brigade Road, and MG Road activities.
+ Hotel is generally in good condition and appears to have been recently renovated.

Room for improvement:
~ Breakfast buffet is mediocre at best. (although I'll give them points for improving some of the items that were brought to their attention earlier in my stay).

As someone who travels all the time, this comfortable haven exceeded my expectations.

Right from a personable booking experience, to the food, comfort of the room, decor, cleanliness, (truly) high-speed wi-fi and generous buffets, I have nothing but praise for this establishment and its staff, What touched me the most was the courtesy of the staff and their personable, no-always-play-by-the-rule-book attitude when it came to certain situations like a late checkout in my case. The proximity to nearby Cubbon park (0.7 kms away) is a big plus.

While I have several options to stay in Bangalore including many close relatives, I will unfortunately need to turn down their hospitality the next time!

When one travels as much as I do, it is really appreciated when a hotel makes you feel at home and provides you that level of comfort that one misses. I stayed at St Mark's several times and have never been disappointed from the friendly doorman, excellent bellmen, and the personal service I receive. This last trip a colleague got sick and the hotel was so accommodating. They made sure he received everything he asked for and the constantly followed up with him making sure he was ok. The duty managers, front office managers, hostesses, customer service and even their Vice President and General Manager consistently followed up and made sure everything was fine. I strongly recommend this hotel if one is looking for that home away from home and want that extra level of service so lacking in other hotels in the area.

Location , individualised service , hospitality , efficiency ,decor,resteraunt , rooms top class , this establishment in my observation has a rare quality about it , me and my wife went for their breakfast , the breakfast menu reflected the choice of majority of their patrons who were frm abroad , a young lady in the traditional attire came upto us realising that our origins were from India and asked us if we would prefer some local dosas( creps) , we were served some lovely food that made us feel at home , I am yet to sample such hospitality , we know where we will be when we come back !
