“Good Location”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Location is quite good. Situated in Brigade Rd, in the heart of upmarket shopping area. I had to check in very early morning and was a little difficult to get into the premises as all the gates were locked in spite of notifying that I'll be coming in the early hours of the morning. The pre booking Clarke & the hotel reception did not seem to have a good understanding. Room was basic. A safe deposit box was available in the room. No fridge. Free Wi-fi was very good & accessible from all locations in the hotel. The flushing system in the toilet was not working properly. Free Parking for vehicles. As Auto Rickshaws ( Tuk- Tuk) are prohibited on Brigade Rd, getting back to the hotel after heavy shopping is difficult. Breakfast was buffet style and had a good selection. Staff friendly.

Location wise Monarch is perfect, it is right in the heart of the city. Lot of shopping places and restaurants very near by.

Air conditioning was poor, Room service was good, rooms were ok and beds were comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good too with a nice spread. The windows open to very bad view of the side streets.

Location of the Hotel is right at the centre of the City with lot of choice for everything from Restaurants, commuting possibilities, Shopping centres etc..

Clean rooms and excellent housekeeping and Food services. Very good value for Money.

The only Problem is that the rooms do not have good views so you have Keep the Windows curtains always closed.

higly recommended for Business trips.

Just pay the rate for the location
Positive aspect about the hotel : Location .

Stay away due to following :
Very bad condition of the rooms , please refer to the picture updated .
Stinking rooms and corridors as the carpet and the infrastructure is very old , the rate may be very promising but this is just the way to attract you to the place . please note if you pay just a 10 usd or just in a radios of 500 m you will get lot better hotel .

New category room which I have upgraded to was a rip off –
Poor quality of bed .
Shower head not working .
Maximum AC could deliver you is 26 C even though you can put control unit to 10 C .

Even thought I took my time to speak to a management time , but not even a single manager could show up to fix the issue . My humble request is don’t do false promises .

Sadly a disappointing stay. The hotel is undergoing major renovations that make it noisy during the day and up tp 9 pm. Our room had a really bad smell that completely spoilt our stay. It smelt like sewage but I think it was coming form the a/c?? See other reviews that reference the same issue.

Check in and breakfast were good and the location excellent as it is right amongst the action!

Perhaps the renovations will fix things? Currently overrated by lonely planet. YMMV

Room Tip: Beware of the noisy renovations and smells!

The room was really spacious, modern and cleaned every day. Hotel staff were excellent. It's located on a very busy street full of fast food restaurants and shops... not for everyone. The room did have a weird smell but we weren't fussed by that. It would be good for people travelling on business...but there isn't much to see in Bangalore, just a warning if you're thinking it was an interesting city, it's actually pretty hard to find stuff to do!
