Best Bengaluru Hotels

Bengaluru Introduction

Once known as the City of Gardens, Bengaluru is now a thoroughly modern city known for its stunning architecture and vibrant high-tech industries. Strongly influenced by the arrival of the East India Company in 1807, Bengaluru still bears traces of those days in Brigade Road, Parade Ground and grand Victorian style architecture. Among the business towers and palaces of Bengaluru you can still find lush gardens to wander through, and there's fabulous hiking and cycling in the hills outside the city.

Hotels in Bengaluru

Hotels in Bengaluru range from opulent palaces nestled in acres of lush gardens to sleek, modern city apartments within walking distance of restaurants and city parks. Luxury hotels in Bengaluru will offer numerous fine dining options reflecting the diverse cuisine of the region, elegantly designed rooms with 24-hour room service and high-class spas with steam rooms, saunas and hot tubs.

Where to stay

Luxury hotels in Bengaluru are found both in and to the north of the city centre, close to the National Gallery of Modern Art and other attractions. Here you will find richly appointed rooms with fine linens, generous buffet breakfasts and large outdoor swimming pools. For mid-range, 3-star hotels, bed-and-breakfasts and apartments, look close to the city centre and inch out towards Banashankari, Koramangala and northwest of the centre. These facilities offer free parking with in-house restaurants and simple but nourishing breakfasts each morning. Discount hotels in Bengaluru are in the city centre, with clean, basic air-conditioned rooms.

Things to see

The spiky turrets of Bangalore Palace beckon visitors to explore its vast galleries and luxurious interiors and catch a glimpse of what life is like for an Indian maharaja. The ruins of the Bangalore Fort, with its pink stone walls and small dungeon, offer a hint of the past while the Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace dazzles with its intricately carved teak balconies, arches and pillars. The brilliantly red Government Museum houses ancient stone carvings, while the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technical Museum is an exciting place to take the kids for hands-on science fun. The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is one of the best cricket grounds in India, and is excellent for joining the locals in cheering wildly for their favourite team. Bengaluru is dotted with beautifully preserved temples, mosques and churches open for tours and quiet contemplation. The spectacular Jamia Masjid mosque and ornate Venkataramana Temple are exquisite examples.
