Rats in my bed!!!
Hotel Empire International - Church Street
During my stay here I was woken up at 4.30am by a rat in my bed. He was under the sheet and blanket crawling around over my feet and legs. When I pulled the covers back he ran up to the top of the bed and then underneath it. When I called the hotel staff to come and get it. They mocked me telling me it wasn't possible. After an hour they found it and then tried to kill it with a thong without success. They caught it in a bag eventually and removed it and then took another 40 minutes to make the bed. They didn't put on fresh bedding, nor would they accomodate me to a different room. I requested a refund and was told that it was my fault that the rat had come into the room as a window that I didn't even know existed was left open. I would never stay at this hotel again and would never recommend it to anyone, not even my worst enemy. The staff were rude to me and not in the slightest interested in accomodating my stay with them.

Good if you are managing with low budget
Location. Food. Friendly staff
We enjoy our stay at the hotel. For a low budget trip, this would be ideal.Specially food and room service. Very friendly staff. If it's cleanliness is further maintain, and improve this would be much better.

Good value for money
Very accessible location, courteous staff, value for money
Very pleasant stay. Pros 1.Amazing location, very close to the M.G.Road metro station, Brigade road and other happening locations. 2.Courteous staff who are very helpful and plesant. 3.Good reception staff. When we reached we were supposed to stay in a deluxe room but since they ran short of the rooms because of some bulk bookings they upgraded us to a super deluxe room. 4.Rooms are pretty cosy and the bathrooms are pretty clean. You can't expect 5 star levels but i should say they are considerably clean and tidy. Cons 1.The complementary breakfast is not advisable as its just one masala dosa for the indian section and a bread omlette for the continenatal section. So its better that you make arrangements for your breakfast. 2.The entrance of the hotel could be improved as at times you could get a weird smell just before you open the reception door. I guess apart from the above cons it was a pleasant experience and i would definitely recommend this place if a short stay is planned and if you looking at a place to crash for the night after your long travel over the day.

My room wasn't available
Flexible check in and check out; good staff services; rapid food service
I was quite shocked when they didn't havey room prepared wen I was there, I waited for 30 minutes. They finally resorted to givin me an upgrade to a bigger room, my concern is that if there was no other available room, wouldn't I have no room to stay? Why is my room not available upon my arrival? The din of street was very deafening, the hotel should have resorted to sound proof windows, and the shower was partially broken but usable. Bad bits aside, I am very pleased with the customer services. They are very attentive and helpful.
