“Avoid if you can..!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Hi Everyone. I stayed here on 17th April in a double room. Avoid this place if you can. I had to catch a train at 6am at the railway station next door and hence stayed here because I didn't want to miss it. The traffic around this place is horrific and so too is the noise. The room was clean but the bed was as hard like an army bunker. No locker or safe in the room. Wifi is free and ok. The staff at reception are good but the service staff were rude and uneducated. No point talking to them. Do everything yourself. The restaurant is on top floor. It is not covered and not air-conditioned. So brace yourself for plenty of flies, mozzies and other tasty insects. I ordered some mutton curry and it was as hard as my shoe. I returned the dish and explained the manager / cook on how to cook goat meat. So please eat out...if you can. There are plenty of decent restaurants in B'lore. To summarise....the room is clean, AC was ok , Bed hard, Traffic noise is horrendous..you can hear the trains and road traffic, Staff not human , food not edible and the restaurant is not an actual one....it is a top floor tent . It is good for 2 things.......to catch early morning trains from the station and for one night stay..ONLY....if you could manage that. For this room cost, there are better alternatives....but they are all a bit further from the station.

Room Tip: I am sorry as I cannot recommend this to anyone.

It was a nice & pleasant stay of 13 days at the hotel. Very good breakfast with homely service by staff. Near to Bus station & railway station. Very good experience to talk with Mr. Ravi Kumar, GM who is always supportive in every help required. My stay will be here always whenever I come to Bangalore.

Just Get down from the Bangalore City Railway station, walk for ten minutes you reach Hotel Bell. Unlike in other places where you look for taxi or auto , bargain for the trip to reach the hotel , we are free from all these activities and you are on your legs to reach the place.

On reaching the hotel , the staff are very courteous, one has the choice of his room to suite his budget. Rooms are neat and clean. The maintanance in the wash room to be improved.

The morning complimentary break fast is reall sumptuous and tasty which is located in the fourth floor roof garden..

Just for two three days buisness trip or tourism trip this hotel is ideal.

I came here for a conference back in 2012 and was pleasantly surprised by the efficiency of the place.

It really is a good place to host a conference in the Bangalore region, one of the finest I have seen in fact.

In terms of the specific hotel facilities, the rooms were pleasantly decorated and comfortable, if not top end, while the service was pleasant and the food good.

Stayed September 2012, travelled on business

I stay in this hotel whenever I am in Bangalore and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who would like to stay overnight for business purposes. The location is very convenient, just next to BangaloreRailway Station and majestic Bus Stand. The buffet is well laid and is complementary.

Its a no frills hotel and nice and cosy place. Dont expect too much and you will not be disappointed. Room service is good. Some rooms have a bath tub in case you would like to have a hot water dip..

Room Tip: book the rooms with a bath tub. You can enjoy the hot water in the cold seasons.
