Taj West End is probably the best 5 Star hotel in Bangalore. The Staff is extremely courteous. I have visited this hotel multiple times and have never been disappointed. PROS : 1) Amazing Property - Slightly Old though 2) Their Restaurant serves probably the best Daal in Town. The breakfast is worth it too. 3) Service is impeccable 4) Rooms are Huge but with slightly old amenities 5) Best parties in Town - Holi Bash is a must attend CONS : 1) Old Property and hence Amenities - I faced a few problems with my Fridge and TV Overall - Best place to stay at in Bangalore

Though I have been going to Taj West End for some time now for various events, trainings etc. this new year's was the first time we stayed. It's a whole new experience, a huge green property with beautifully done rooms. Best was the huge balcony which opens up to green trees and fresh air. Room service was quick even on New Year's Eve when so many parties going on in the premises. The old world charm of the open corridors makes you feel like staying in a villa and not any typical hotel. All in all if one looking for a holiday in some hill station but no time to get away, this place is the closest you can feel.

This hotel has changed from the time I was last here. I visited it last in February 2000 and now during the early part of 2011 it is in the centre of Bangalore instead of being at the far end of the city as it used to be those days. Those days, I remember arriving at the hotel was an exercise and used to be difficult if you did not have a prompt car driver to pick you up from the smaller airport that used to exist those days. These days you can hail an auto rickshaw from another part of town and putt putt to the entrance to the Taj West End. As a result, the dynamics of the hotel itself have also changed. Those days, it was an exclusive hotel with no parallel in the whole of south India. Today it is one of the many luxury hotels in Bangalore. The effect has been well entrenched in the hotel’s service and the food on offer.

Absolutely beautiful hotel with stunning gardens, fantastic rooms, amazing service and out-of-this-world food. Staff go out of their way to make your stay the most memorable and special ever. Just be aware that if you are female you tend to be invisible!

Beautiful hotel in the heart of the city

6.6/7
Posted 26 Dec, 2014

The Taj West End is a beautiful, old hotel located on Race Course road. I loved my stay here in August this year, and I would certainly stay here again. The first thing you should know is that this is an old property which is massive. So you've beautiful scenery even within, and nice stretches of road to walk after a good meal. Tip: Pick a room towards the fag end of the property as the tree cover in that area is pretty dense! The room is extremely modern, a contrast to the exterior of the hotel. All facilities expected of a Taj are provided, which includes a very courteous staff. Food here is great on quality as well as taste. You have the option to dine in the open as well, which is recommended as Bangalore's weather is pleasant. Since the hotel is on Race Course, you've easy access to other parts of Bangalore city which is hugely important as the traffic here is pretty bad. I would fully recommend Taj West End to anyone looking for a 5-star hotel in Bangalore.
