The Taj Gateway Hotel4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I have stayed, previously, in two Taj group hotels and was not disappointed in this, my third stay. Collection from the airport and check-in were both effective and my room was large and clean, if not as modern as my previous experience of Taj hotels. All staff were outstanding, as ever, going out of their way to give excellent service. In particular, service from the front desk and from staff in Northern Gate was first rate. The pool was lovely, albeit I was the only one using it on all of my daily visits. The lifts were very slow and one of them moved from side to side quite alarmingly, although both got you to your destination. In spite of what it says on the hotel's website, alcohol is available from the various bars and restaurants. I was booked into the hotel by my company, but would be more than happy to stay here, again, if working in Bangalore.
So this review is highly for Vijay in Restaurant and Rajkumar Chef in kitchen. We had our karwachauth fast and wanted to have sargi in morning, and so I called on 7th evening to confirm if they would give us bfast as early as 4 am. Honestly both were very cooperative helping us make awesome club sandwiches, South indian coffee, aaloo paratha, curd, pickle, and the awesome gulab jamun. For us, it was my bhabhi 1st karwachauth and we had visited Bangalore for their reception stay in RSI. Right on time, fresh,hot. It was truly a WOW moment for me. Guys you people rock.
The Gateway Hotel is perfectly located on Residency road near to CBD of MG road. Hospitality is upto the standard of Taj group. Staff is very courteous. The best part of the hotel was its breakfast. Spread and taste was really good.
enjoy the stay at hotel, staffs are really cooperative. Excellent Food. Location is also very good. management may think on increasing the size of table and add one additional chair in room, as it is really difficult to take in room dinner for two people
First, the service is excellent. Everyone made me feel at home, from the clerks to the hotel manager. They really work hard to get to know you. They even remembered my name. Second, the location is close to lots if happening restaurants and bars. There is a decent mall within walking distance. The sidewalks are nicely paved. It's a busy area but then Bangalore in general is busy. The in-house restaurants are very good also. The breakfast is superb. I had a masala dosa every morning. They made eggs any style on order. Lots of fresh juices made everyday. Finally, the rooms are a bit outdated. There are modern amenities like HDTV. They need a renovation with the bathroom; it's a bit tight. The bed continues to move around, which was annoying. In the end, I would come back for the first two points. I'm hoping they would renovate the rooms at some point because the rest of the hotel is very nice.
Staff are professional, courteous and helpful. Staff are around yet you and have your privacy and go about what you want to do. Easy to get transport to and from the hotel and no transport required for shopping or resturants coz they are just round the corner
Very convenient location from the central city of Bangalore. Highly appreciate the hotel staff's hospitality. Reasonable price is also good. I couldn't have change to enjoy breakfast there but assuming it shoul be nice. Will try next time.
One of the GREATEST thing about this hotel is its location - in the map of Bangalore city. The second is its lip smacking restaurant Karavalli. The third is Chef Tarun, himself a foodie. The buffet breakfast is SUCH a spread that you skip a Karavalli lunch for a dinner instead. A late flight ensured that I barely crashed on to the bed as soon as I arrived. A comfy one too. Special mention must be made of the efficiency of the wake up call service. They kept calling me till they were SURE that I was up and that my response was not on auto pilot, an art I have perfected ever since I could speak. Had these numerous calls not come, my half day schedule would have gone for a six! That was service beyond the call of duty. Ran out without breakfast. The gentle persuasion to have coffee, tea etc was also super friendly. Taj Mangalore is My home for me, as is Taj Kala Ghoda. This Taj Bangalore comes a close second.
The purpose of the visit was to meet friends and shopping. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the shopping area and restaurants nearby. Bit pricey as you can get similar standard hotels at 20% less. we paid Rs 7000/- a night exclusive of breakfast. The jiva spa is very good and it has a nice pool too. Reception and room service staff are courteous and warm. Guess it will be much better if their rates are more competitive.
One night stay away flight from U.K. The hotel is only a short trip from the airport. The staff are friendly and helpful. The small coffee shop has a good choice of food and drinks.The pool area is worth a visit after a long flight
