HolidayInn Express - Why Pick them on your next visit to Bangalore| Hotel Review

When travelling choosing the right hotel for you can be a daunting task !

Specially if you are travelling to a city like Bangalore where commute time and cost is high so is the hotel pricing .
In this blogpost we will tell who and why should you pick Holiday Inn Express when visiting Bangalore .

We have stayed in HIEX , USA as well as had the pleasure of  experiencing  both the properties in Bangalore . One at Whitefield and another at Yeshwantpur

When I wonder why are we so impressed by the chain I have come to realise it’s the attention to details , the small things that make a big difference which is usually expected when you pay a premium price and the hospitality that stood out .


About HIEX :

Part of Holiday Inn , Express brand is owned by  intercontinental hotel group .
Holiday inn express chain  is a rest and go hotel brand designed for the smart travelers be it on Business or leisure .
In short is a no frills hotel but a little bit of nice where ever it matters the most .
The most fascinating bit for me as an Architect by profession  was  Their attention to detail .
They focus on doing the basics brilliantly and the quality is  very much comparable to luxury properties without the premium pricing since there are no   multiple restaurants or swimming pool .
Not all properties are like that but atleast the Blore ones are . 

This concept is quite new to India , but very popular in the US .
I have seen a multiple hotels in the same area /city during my visit abroad .

Who is it for ?

Travelers who like it hassle free and without complication .
Faster check in check out , a restful nights sleep , good breakfast and everything needed within arm’s reach .
Perfect for Business/ work  travelers – as they are simple but engaging place to rest , recharge and even get some work done.
I would highly recommend the chain for solo woman travelers as its safe and you know what to expect from this chain of hotels . 
Even makes for a perfect 1 day staycation  on a budget  if you are Bangalorean and want to experience a branded star hotel  without the add on pricing .

Why HIex ?

The chain offers everything you need and nothing you may not

Complimentary Breakfast with every kind of room
Free hi speed  WiFi
Room though compact but well designed with all bare necessities .
Dining with well curated but limited menu

Why  HIEx Bangalore ?

As of now there are two properties in Bangalore
One in Whitefield and another at Yeshwantpur

Whitefield is bigger with large lobby , reading corner , large dining area
Also is in walkable distance from ITPL and malls like forum Shantiniketan and Park square

Yeshwanthpur is right in front of metro station  and next to Vaishnavi complex with Movie screen. And well connected to Peenya business hub

Both the hotels are well located and ideal for ppl visiting these areas of Bangalore 


Whats special

There are so many hotel aggregators these days and the choices can be overwhelming
