“Prime location ... but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

the hotel is just 50m from the Central Railway Station. The front office is kind of okay. The rooms are not that spacious and a lot need to be improved. The bathroom was not clean and some of the bolts were not in tact. The complimentary breakfast and dinner was good. The convention room was not up to the standard. The audio system suffered from frequent hiccups.

The hotel is Located near railway station and Bus stand. So location wise its good. The rooms are very well furnished. Very big rooms .Good co-operative staff. But the food is just average quality... overall 7 out of 10

Room Tip: Executive suits are very good.

# Wifi is not available in 3rd floor, if u ask the staff the blame is put on the metro work. While i could use the same in 2nd floor on d same day.
# Minibars(mini refrigerators) are not working in rooms.
# Complimentory dinner and brkfast is good.
# Proximity to the railway station is the biggest plus point.

The hotel is conveniently located near railway stations Rooms are small and decent. I have stayed here for a couple of times (all business trips). The hotel is safe hotel for staying alone for a lady. Good south Indian breakfast. Cooperative front desk staff. Overall a pleasant stay.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

I booked the hotel for a weeks stay. But when I checked in I found the room was smelly. I found some irritation while breathing when I made a complaint the staff came and checked the AC filter which was full of dust. The towels were not fresh. The bathroom was small. During the night till 11.30 pm there was noise from restaurant (above the 2nd floor). As the room was near the road side there was continuous noise from the road. I checked out on the next day.

Room Tip: If you happen to stay here avoid rooms below restaurant and choose a room with bath tub.

at the heart of the city, close to majestic bus stand & railway station is a hotel and convention centre that rings a bell in your mind about awesome south indian cuisine : exotic malabar fish curry to vegetarian curd rice & appalams.

rooms are good as per the rates in bangalore budget rooms.

you will not get anything close by, not even a chemist, so remember to pack every small thing.

the staff is very helpful & courteous.
if you want to do a conference / meeting, ask for Jade hall only.

Room Tip: ask for a room that does not face amrutha lodge, there are functions happening & loud music can...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

The property is bit overpriced which I feel is because of its proximity to the City Railway Station. I feel they have separate rooms for single occupancy which I think is bit cramp. However amenities, maintenance of the rooms are very good.

Although I have not yet tried the Restaurant fully but I find that the authentic South Indian Breakfast is a big HIT. Continental Dishes are also very Good.

Front Desk is co-operative but they does not have a good travel desk. Recommend this for business travel.

Room Tip: Do not take rooms on the floor below the terrace restaurant.
