Located right in the heart of Bangalore, The Golden Lotus is like a hibernation zone, amidst all the chaos of the city. The perfect amalgamation of the old and the new, with modern architecture and an old-world style of interiors, this hotel is just about 500 meters away from Brigade Road and a kilometer away from Commercial Street. The entrance is like a door into the past and it has a rooftop area where you can relax and take in the sights of the city. Expect plenty of artwork along the walls, low hung chandeliers, stained glass windows and accents in the bathrooms and bedrooms.
If you use the glass elevator once, you won’t stop because you get a superb view of the city. Paintings on the wall, antique-esque statues of all sizes and there’s an old, beat up piano that has now been reduced to a showpiece on the terrace. Free WiFi and cable TV are a given.
