Business oriented hotel near the bus and train stations Jan 18, 2016
Fortune Park JP Celestial is a hotel located near the bus and train stations in Bangalore. In fact, right across the street there are two bus lines operating and dispatching their vehicles to destinations over South India. The train station is a bit farther, about less than a kilometer away, easily accessed by walking (although not recommended for those with heavy luggage). The hotel is also located at the southwest end of the racetrack but the one way streets make it difficult for taxis unless they go around and drop passengers off by coming from the other side.

This is a medium sized hotel with about 200-300 rooms and three restaurants. Because of the distance, wifi is limited in certain areas and there are different networks for connections inside the room and at restaurant and lobby area. Other areas don't have wifi at all so the connections are not seamless. Quite annoying at times, I might add.

The room is big, and a lot of open floor space as the beds are tucked in one corner and not spread out. There is a lounge chair beside the beds, and a full desk which is quite far from the beds. There is a console to control most electronics and lights at the bedside area.

One big turn off is the stench of cigarettes despite the room

being non-smoking. Eventually your nose gets used to it, but it isn't that pleasant.

The bathroom is ok, but the round sink is too shallow and results in spills from slashing water while brushing teeth. The bath cubicle is handicapped friendly, and the towels are clean and fluffy. There is a clothes line for those who may want to do their laundry. The amenities are amply stocked and quite nice. There is a hair dryer and shaving mirror for ease of grooming.

The breakfast selection is quite good but it is always crowded especially after 8AM when the business people come in droves. There are also tour groups staying here so one has to come in early for breakfast otherwise end up waiting for a table or sharing one. Ideally one shouldn't be rushing their breakfast but that seems to be the case with all the business folks.

Ah, one very peculiar setting - the lobby's piped in music system was playing Bryan Adam's "Summer of '69" all throughout the day. You get to wonder if the people are Bryan Adams' fans or they don't really know what they're listening to.

Centrally Located Hotel - MG Road Aug 01, 2011
I booked the hotel on the internet after comparing the price and facilities of other hotels.

The staff of the hotel is well trained and I was upgraded to a bigger room. But the rooms shown in the picture on the website differed from the actual rooms. They were not so elegant as they looked in the pics, but still they were nice.

Looking at the prices of other hotels in the same area I would recommend this hotel.

Advice - When visiting Bangalore make sure you select the right location for your hotel or else you will spent most of your time struck in traffic jams.
