    I have joined the forum to get advice on the hotels on MG Road Bangalore.

    I am particularly looking for hotels which are three stars and above and which would be in a budget of Rs3500 and nothing more.

    I have not been on MG Road in Bangalore, so have no idea what the surroundings are like so please provide some location details as well.

    Overview

    Located right at the heart of the city is the MG Road, also known as the Mahatma Gandhi Road. Back then, MG Road was known as the South Parade, being a part of the cantonment section of the city. It was teeming with natural beauty, of flowers and of gardens. Keeping up with the modern times, MG Road has been transformed, with lots of hotels, restaurants and shopping areas all around. For indoor shopping, there's the Bangalore Central Mall. For watching movies, there's the INOX Theatre of Lido Mall. Attractions like the St. Mark's Cathedral, Ulsoor Lake and Cubbon Park are all within walking distance as well. Feeling hungry? International food chains such as McDonald's, Starbucks and Hard Rock Cafe are also in this area. Likewise, enjoy local restaurants such as Cafe Coffee Day, Bheema's, Dasaprakash and many more here. In this guide, we would highlight the best three-star properties in MG Road, that have rates under Rs. 3,500 per night.

It is located at a busy area where restaurants, stores and other establishments are quite plenty. If you want to be transported to the colonial era, this heritage property would do just that for you.

The surrounding gardens add to that homely vibe of the property. The reception is very simple but the glass accents add that air of sophistication to it.
