Where to Stay in Bengaluru – a neighbourhood guide

Find a place to stay

Bengaluru – or Bangalore as most know it – is as popular with tourists as it is with the businessmen and women who flood its commercial districts all year round. Just like its tasty cuisine, the city is bursting with colour and spice. Whether you’re diving into the traditional markets on a budget or looking to splash out at some of southern India’s best high street shops, when it comes to accommodation you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Hotels in Ashok Nagar



Near M.G. Road are some of Bengaluru’s most extravagant hotels. Offering some serious urban luxury, many boast swimming pools, gorgeous greenery, and premium comfort – not to mention all the standard perks. You can find convenient and cheaper options along Brigade Road.


Gandhi Nagar



Defined by a popular racecourse that spreads between Seshadri Road and Racecourse Road, Gandhi Nagar is an enticing part of the city. Sitting adjacent to Freedom Park, the Bangalore Turf Club makes for a tempting flutter on a day out enjoying an authentic slice of India’s historic racing culture. There are plenty of decent restaurants scattered about and the Sir M Visvesvaraya Metro Station is 2.2 kilometres from the racecourse.

Gandhi Nagar is home to a broad selection of hotels to suit most budgets, big and small. You’ll find a cluster of comfortable and business-friendly mid-range hotels to the south of the racecourse, particularly along Seshadri Road.





Around 7 kilometres from M.G. Road – in the south-eastern part of the city – is Kormangala, one of Bengaluru’s largest and most desirable localities. Along 100 Feet Road you can catch live music performances, while vibrant bars and restaurants are on hand to pass the night away in a fun and friendly environment. Plenty of bus stops peppering the tree-lined boulevards make the half-hour trip into the main city centre simple and hassle free.

While one or two stylish city retreats – complete with inviting pools, health clubs, and valet parking – are on offer in Kormangala, the majority of establishments are of the small, affordable, and business-friendly sort, ideal if you're watching your budget.





The district of Indiranagar lies to the east of the city centre, rarely much more than a simple 5 minute car ride from M.G. Road. In addition to an array of shopping malls and boutiques to choose from, in this neck of the woods you’ll also find a few niche art galleries, furniture and antique stores, and crafts shops perfect for bagging yourself a colourful keepsake from your holiday in Bengaluru.
