Ashraya International Hotel
Ranked #267 of 681 Hotels in Bengaluru
Reviewed 26 February 2013

The staff was rude and complained about people looking for cheap bargains through online deals. Hotel and rooms are unclean, bedsheet & towels were old and torn, food was bad, even basic toiletries are not provided.

Ashraya is great hotel. The location is opposite the Police Commissioner's office or home on Infantry road. The restaurant has fantastice thai cuisine and their Thai Green curry with rice is an excellent dish. Cubbon park is within walkable distance. The rooms are good, not 4 or 5 star though. The staff is polite and helpful. Overall Rating - Recommended for business trips. Not too much luxury but economical.

Although the city limits of Bangalore are expanding exponentially, the downtown remains the same. This Hotel has the benefit of being located close to landmarks like Cubban Park, MG Road, etc. Any time during night and day, the Hotel offers a great convenience factor. The rooms are spacious, housekeeping and room services are of good standard. Food is appreciably good with a special mention of the Thai cuisine available at the restaurant. The rates are competitive and hence, make the place a preferred choice for regular travellers.

This hotel is ideally located, just opposite the Commissioner Of Police's residence on Infantry road. I checked out at least 5 to 6 hotels in the nearby areas, but wasn't happy. When I found Ashraya International, I was pleasantly surprised to find a decent hotel at a good rate.

Its by no means, a 5 star or even a 4 star hotel. But it does its job as a good business/budget hotel for a family. The rooms are clean. The bed and sheets were clean and fresh. Service was good.The bathroom did have some problem of water supply, but was fixed shortly. The restaurant downstairs has one of the best Thai food buffet, I've ever eaten.

If you're in Bangalore, looking for good hotel to spend the night, this is the place ! Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 210. It had the view of the entrance of the hotel and the main road.

I write this review predominantly for the benefit of someone who intends to stay for a night or two in bangalore before catching their onward international or domestic flight (train).

For the onward traveller, the location of this hotel is perfect. Location is downtown, and yet very handy to get on the NH7 and proceed to the international airport should you wish. Does that make a difference? yes it does if you ask me. Bangalore isn't the bangalore of 20 years back. One way systems in place everywhere and even for someone who thinks they remember the city from a decade back, it can still be tricky trying to find their way onto NH7 . From that perspective, this location is handy. Cantonment railway station is not far either and that should make this a good choice for the train traveller too.

If you are driving from the Internationational airport finding this place will be a doddle. Not so easy for someone driving from say hosur. Since its a one way road, if you join infantry road past the hotel then you have make your way all over again. Not for the faint hearted in peak time traffic as I found out.

Enough said about the location. It is perfect, once you have made it. And there aren't other hotels so conveniently located and in the same price range.

The rooms are very clean. Good quality linen , wash room, shower cubcle all good. Window glazing very good and keeps the noise out. Stayed in one of the rooms on the first floor overlooking the car park. Didn't hear a thing. Can't fault at all. Extensive menu available for room service and there are two restaurants situated on the ground floor. I tried both their chinese menu on the room service and the indian selection at the restaurant. Would happily eat again.

Now to the negatives:
I had some minor issues with booking. When I enquired about a Deluxe A/c Single - I was initially told it was available, but only to be put on hold for a minute and told it wasn't after all. I was advised only a Superior suite (more expensive option) was available!!! . Made me wonder whether it was a sales tactic to get occupancy up on more expensive options.

I had another irritation. The telephone wouldn't work in my room. You may ask who wants to use the hotel's telephone in this day and age. I did, mainly because I didn't have an Indian Sim card and I didn't fancy making calls using my mobile on international roaming. Took three hours and numerous attempts by technicians and the front desk to try and sort this out. In the end , I was tired of staff knocking on the door every few mintures and told them to stop doing experiments with trying to fix the telephone and leave me alone. The manager in charge knocked off 10% of the bill for inconvenience.

All said and done - it is a good choice. Well located and ticks most of the boxes. The only better options in that neighbourhood will be in the 5 star category.
