“Great staff, good value room, good location”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

The staff make this place. We were able to check out a couple of hours late free of further charge, thanks to the duty manager. The waiters/room boys were really attentive to our needs and cleaned our room well every day.
The room itself was an odd shape; assymetrical, which I really liked. It was somewhat dark but very comfortable and surprisingly quiet despite overlooking the busy street below.
The location is convenient to main shopping areas, restaurants, and tuk-tuks.
I would definitely choose this option again as "good value for money".

Room Tip: Go for a room at the end of the corridor...quiet and bigger than average

Now if your in the vicinity of MG Road then you must try Empire restaurant on church street if you like Great India grilled/ tandoor food.
They do almost everything well except their curries or gravies which really are a let down. Afghanbi chiecken , tandoori etc all grill s kababs are great.
last time around they were doing Karimeen which was also authentic.

Shwarmah etc is average.
VFM place and convenient location.
Non ac and ac seating available.

I stayed during the mid summer of 2012 for 2 days. I should say this Hotel is recommended for business purposes. Rooms and bathroom are small neat tidy, the room service is good, location is the major advantage. U've a major bus stop at a walk-able distance and u are very near to the anand rao circle which comes as an advantage if you're travelling by bus.

About the food. U have a Non-Veg Buffet for Rs129/- pp except on Sundays which is really good. I hated the morning coffee. Everything else is good.

You also have few good restaurants nearby if u r staying as a couple and if the purpose is leisure you can go visit them.

i will recommend this if you're work is in the city and looking for a budget Hotel.
I loved my stay.

I was on a business trip for 5 days in bangalore with two of my colleagues. We booked the rooms on phone. When we reached , the rooms were kept ready for us. The rooms were comparatively smaller for the money charged. But the clealiness was ok. The breakfast which is given complmentry doesn't have much of choice, but few south indian or a plain bread jam. Also If you want to leave early don't rely on breakfast of hotel , as they provide it only after 8.30am. But because of the location , this place can be recommended. The staff was helpful. The manager adjusted one night stay for my wife & kid without any additional charges. There was no taxi available for airport, but on short notice the manager arranged for taxi immediately.

So nice place for business trips.

I booked this hotel based on the reviews from fellow trip advisor travellers. Must say tat I was pleasantly surprised by the location (church street mg road) which is one of the best in bangalore.

The single room was good enough for me..ac was working fine...d bathroom fitting had problems but tat was ok.

Their in house restaurant is one of the most authentic ones in Bangalore and food apart from the Arabian grape juice (must try once) was yummy.

Even if you are a business/family/leisure traveller am sure u ll find this place to ur budget n liking....

Internet was free but quite slow....overall it's TRUE VALUE FOR UR MONEY.....highly recommended!!

A great stay in a central part of Bangalore. Staff were very friendly, welcoming and efficient, and extremely accommodating. 24-hour check-in is a bonus; I got there at 8am, and I was eating a simple but tasty breakfast in my room at 8:30 - what more could I ask for? Throw in wifi, a decent restaurant downstairs, clean bathrooms with 24-hour hot water. And all for under Rs. 2000! Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: I stayed in a standard room and that was adequate!
