Hotel Review: OYO Townhouse Koramangala Bangalore
THE OYO TOWNHOUSE CONCEPT
A new concept on the hospitality landscape of India was what the OYO Townhouse has been touted as. The concept is a departure from the traditions of the hotel industry and was looking at a futuristic way of operations, the SMARTER way. The aim of the Townhouse is to provide a home away from home in a centrally located place right in the heart of the cities. The Townhouse hotels are geared to combine the coziness of a home, the convenience of a hotel, the informality of a cafe, and the formal environs of a workspace all rolled into one. The OYO Townhouse hotels also look to offer the convenience of a merchandise store for its guests. The new concept is a result of relooking at all the aspects of how a traditional hotel operates and re-engineering them to be compatible with the changing times and the needs of the Millenial traveler.The OYO Townhouse has ‘smartened’ up all aspects including booking, checking in, rooms, menus, facilities, communication, location and service with the objective of providing value for money to its guests.The Townhouse hotels are integrated with their surroundings and are geared to emerge as social hotspots in the vicinity. So if you are looking for one of the best hotels and places to stay in Bangalore, you may zero in on an OYO Townhouse hotel.
Budget hotel chain OYO launched OYO Townhouse in January 2017 with a hotel starting operations in Delhi and as of today, there are 22 OYO Townhouse hotels across the cities of Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Kolkata.
The Experience at OYO Townhouse Koramangala Bangalore
We were invited to experience first hand the concept of the OYO Townhouse and review the hotel as a whole. So Monday morning, when office goers were fighting the Monday blues and heading reluctantly to the office we drove towards the OYO Townhouse located at Koramangala, a central business hub of Bangalore.
“OYO Townhouse Koramangala Sony Signal”, we told our driver and we were off!
Read on to see how we found the experience and what are our thoughts on the OYO Townhouse.
Booking Experience at OYO Townhouse Koramangala Bangalore
As soon as you book your room a confirmation message reaches your registered mobile number with the details of your booking including a link to the location map of the hotel as well as a Booking Id. OYO Townhouse 006 Koramangala Sony Signal, said the message, referring to the address of the OYO Townhouse.
The Booking Id is going to come in handy to help you log in to the Wi-Fi at the hotel. We found this so convenient as we were able to log in to the Wi-Fi even before the check-in process was completed as all we needed was the Booking Id and our mobile number which we already had. Closer to the Check-in date the hotel will call and confirm your arrival time as per the message that we had received. We received another message giving precise directions to reach the hotel. We did not have any difficulty in finding the hotel because of this as well as google maps.

The Reception and Check-in Process Experience at OYO Townhouse Koramangala Bangalore
A cute red door at the end of a path across a small lawn led to the reception. We were greeted with a smiling face and a welcome drink as we entered the reception of the OYO Townhouse. We were asked for ID’s and then signed in the Hotel register and were asked to wait. The reception itself was compact and neat, organized in a smart way. After a brief wait, we were shown to our room which was on the second floor and accessed through two modern lifts.
The Rooms at OYO Townhouse Koramangala Bangalore
The OYO Townhouse Koramangala Bangalore has a total of 16 rooms all identical with a choice of either King Size double bed or two separate beds. The room was done up in simple and subdued tones and had a wooden flooring. An LCD television, a storage cabinet, and a working table were provided apart from a compact and clean bathroom.
We found the room pretty spacious and also checked the Wi-Fi connectivity which was good. The lighting availability was good and kept in mind the fact that guests may like to work on their laptops. The provision of adequate power points ensured that we had no issues in charging our multiple gadgets at one go.

The overall ambiance of the hotel was quirky and contemporary as well as utilitarian and made the best use of all available space. We found the paintings which looked like enlarged clip art on the corridors really fascinating.

The OYO Townhouse Koramangala offers some nice choices of food. There is a complimentary breakfast served at the restaurant on the fourth floor with a delightful sit out that gives a view of the road below. It is nice to have a relaxed breakfast as you watch the world go by right below you.
The breakfast consisted of continental and Indian fare with vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian options. One can order lunch or dinner in the room itself and there are also some items in the menu that can be ordered round the clock.
So if one is returning late from work or from a late night party, those hunger pangs can be pacified easily as all-day dining facility is available.
