Solitaire Hotel Bangalore Bengaluru Reviews
Thoroughly modern facilities within easy drive to airport and city Aug 20, 2010
Affordable luxury hotels have been popping up around India for years now, and The Solitaire fits nicely into this category. Modern, sleek & bustling with locals and business travelers, this is the place to find Western folk in Bangalore. Conveniently located near the main train terminal, The Solitaire is an obvious pick for any visitor looking for a dose of comfort in a familiar USA setting. Very little inside or out even represents India, a sad commentary on the design, but noteworthy for those who aren’t street savvy after the long flight to the south of India.
A gorgeous high ceiling, marbled lobby greets guests behind the floor-to-ceiling glass outer wall. Once inside, check-in was effortless. Smartly dressed staff behind the front desk were all smiles for the arrival process. My travel partner and I were handed off to a beautiful young lady who escorted us to our room to show us the functions of included gadgets.
We were both saddened to have just a few hours to rest, recharge and repack after feeling the bed’s unbelievable softness. Several days had passed without a great night’s rest due to a variety of beds in just as many locations. The Solitaire was a “last night” hotel which is common for tourists departing in the wee hours of the next morning. In this case, we arrived around 3 PM with an expected check out of 10 PM.
In room amenities were generous including a mini fridge, flat screen TV, writing desk, complimentary WiFi and in-room ISD calling. And as one would expect, an en-suite western bathroom comes with full time running hot water. My only gripe was the heavy door seemed to be in the way at all times when entering, exiting or just plain using the bathroom. Two comfortable faux leather chairs provide seating with views behind of the Bangalore horse track. And finally, the interior design is finished as if ripped from the pages of Architectural Digest. A dash of color is added against a black and white background with smart results.
Neat and clean, western, modern, friendly and hospitable, The Solitaire achieves the role of the newer Indian 4 star hotel, albeit with little character. This is the place for business travelers, “last nighters”, and any tourist not quite ready to take a chance on the more unique options around the city.
