Bangalore is not only considered as an IT hub any more – from the bustling commercial street to Cubbon Park to Koshy’s to Nandi Hills; a few words will instantly take you back to your good old days in Bangalore. It took me 3 years of campus life to realize I was home, in a city that welcome visitors with its moderate temperatures, quirky restaurants, dazzling nightlife and various soirees to discuss art, music or food. A few days back, couple of my friends were heading to Bangalore and finding cheap stays was a task. So I have compiled a few affordable hotels in Bangalore that will make you stay in for days and explore the Garden City.
Conveniently located in the most happening part of the town, Mango Hotels offer stylish executive rooms equipped with air conditioners, coffee makers, free wi-fi and an LCD TV. With laundry service, concierge service and a 24 hour front desk, the hotel is ideal for business travellers as well as visitors on leisure. Mango hotels offer free breakfast but if you’re staying in for lunch or dinner, there is an on-site restaurant – Café Mango. Guests will find no trouble in staying entertained as the hotel is situated in Kormanagala which is home to some of the city’s major pubs, restaurants and shopping malls.
Oyo Rooms offers standardised bed and breakfast hotels across India. Some of the best hotels under Oyo’s wing are in Bangalore. Although, you’ll find Oyo’s branches in Indra Nagar, Bannerghatta and Jayanagar, an ideal stay would be in Brigade road or MG Road, where you’ll not only find plenty of things to do but has great connectivity to public transport like the KSRTC bus station, MG Road Metro station, and Bangalore City Railway Station, which are only a few blocks away. In addition to a city views, the rooms are equipped with air-conditioners, ironing facilities, hair dryers, flat screen TV along with satellite channels.
Backpackers or families looking for a comfortable stay must try Hotel Comfort. Located about 1 km from Cubborn Park, the hotel is also in close proximity to Kempegowda International Airport.
