Amber Inn, Bed and Breakfast, in Bangalore began just over 3 years ago, with 5 basic rooms and the realization that a perfect location, good food, sociable people and absolutely clean rooms, were the essentials for a satisfying and warm stay. Stimulates a social communal experience. So, time marches on and this place evolves to meet a whole new world of travelers…… while guest houses around the vicinity was busy knocking down and building corporate impersonal structures, we were busy building the best bed and breakfast around (email hidden), right on 80 feet road…… where each room is a private habitat, that comes with twin beds, side table with reading light, flat screen TV, split a/c, desk and chair for all your work needs, loads of wardrobe space for your long term needs, attached bath with geysers….. Several power points to charge your laptop or cell phone…..

From the first communication to her incredibly warm welcome in Bangalore, Anitha made us feel right at home. The guesthouse is beautiful, clean and cozy. The location is fantastic. Not far from downtown but also near tons of restaurants and shops. We were so comfortable in our room, and the entire staff at the guesthouse is great. Delicious masala chai and dosas! We loved our stay so much, and Bangalore, that we booked a second time!
I felt like being at home during my stay at Amber Inn, it was a pleasant, hassle-free experience. The place is centrally located, in a safe neighborhood. Indira Nagar has plenty of options for food, drinks and shopping. The metro station is close by, I used it often to get to MG Road, never got caught in the traffic.
The room is cute, cozy and well maintained, with all the essential facilities provided, including wifi internet access. The common terrace area is cool and spacious, it's my favorite hangout spot. Anthony, the caretaker, is very sweet and friendly. He is a good cook and is always eager to attend to your needs, same applies to the maids as well.
And, of course, Anitha is an excellent host. She is easy going and friendly, but never intrusive. She was always available by phone/email, right from the moment when I was interested in booking the room, until I checked out at the end of my stay. Despite our busy schedules, Anitha met up with me and ensured that I'm happy with my stay. I had a nice chat with her, she has answers for everything under the sun!
I will definitely stay in Amber Inn during my next trip to Bangalore, and I will recommend this place to everyone.
We stayed at Amber Inn over a weekend. It was a lovely experience. The place is centrally located and very convenient. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. Everyone was warm and welcoming. Anitha as well as the caretakers were very helpful and made sure that we had a good stay. Overall our stay was all we could have asked for and more. We will definitely visit again.
Anitha was extremely helpful right from the start with prompt follow up and even speaking with an irate auto driver to guide him to the building. The flat is very well maintained and the staff is extremely gracious, attentive, and helpful. The location is superb and a short walk to any number of cafes and restaurants though as it is at the corner of a busy road, it can be a bit noisy before 10pm and starting at 6am (nothing ear plugs can't handle). There was issue with the Internet but, having lived in India, this is more indicative of the infrastructure as Internet connectivity and outages are the norm rather than the exception for many BnBs and guesthouses. (Anitha was also very gracious about calling the repair folks promptly.) If Internet is mission critical to you, it is more advisable to have a spare Internet dongle that only costs $20 that you can recharge whenever you need.
All in all an enjoyable stay!
Please see previous review. I had initially booked one night but added two other nights due to change in traveling plans.
Anitha lives downstairs and is accessible when needed but otherwise you have your privacy. She is easy going and helpful, trying to help us sort out getting an Indian cell phone and informing us on train ticket purchase and accommodation in hot spots during New Years. The room is clean and comfortable but the bathroom faucet needs a small repair but is functional. Anthony was gone for Xmas but her maid cooks and excellent authentic indian breakfast. Her chutney was delish! Laundry service was used and is done overnight as it is line dry. Outdoor balcony available for meals and hanging out. Overall, Anitha is great, room is good, and neighborhood offers plenty of food options.
Right from the first interface to final interaction, its been complete pleasure. Located in heart of Bangalore city.
Felt as if I was staying in my own house, rooms were clean and Anthony ( care taker) showed genuine concern and made great breakfast.
Hospitality is probably an incorrect reference, it was like a good friend hosting me over a weekend.
Anitha was kind enough to call me for a get together she was hosting for her friends.
Thx again Anitha, do give a shout when your in Delhi next
Neat, close to couple of nice hangouts. Anthony(the cook) was very polite and accommodating. you got your privacy!
Great location, awesome host and a very friendly Anthony. If you are here, you will have your privacy with comfort and no unnecessary interruptions will happen. I was able to co-ordinate with Anita easily and will recommend amber inn to my other friends too.
