Pocket Guide: Visit Bengaluru
Often referred to as the Silicon Valley of India, cosmopolitan Bengaluru is the nation’s leading information technology hub and is home to a large number of education and national research institutions. As such, it has a young, hardworking, and highly educated population who have fuelled Bengaluru's development to the point where it is now the second fastest growing city in India.
3 Star Hotels in Bengaluru
Expedia has hundreds of three-star places to stay in Bengaluru, from the central district around M.G. Road to other neighbourhoods like Koramangala, Indiranagar and Whitefield.
Along with standard three-star hotels, you can also choose from self-catering apartments and bed and breakfasts, so whatever kind of accommodation you need you’re sure to find something to suit.
In Bengaluru city centre, three-star hotels come in a mix of styles, from modest tower blocks and contemporary glass-and-steel buildings to freestanding boutique villas shaded by trees. Some belong to popular local chains like FabHotels – India’s largest budget brand – and the small Indian luxury group juSTa Hotels and Resorts.
Many other three-star hotels in Bengaluru fall under the OYO umbrella, India’s largest branded network of hotels. You’ll also find plenty of accommodation that is independently owned and managed, and a handful belonging to well-known Western brands like Ramada, ibis and Premier Inn.
Best Things to Do in Bengaluru
City Market, also known as KR or Krishnarajendra Market, is the busiest in Bengaluru city. Early morning is the best time to soak up the sights and sounds of the traders setting up their stalls for the day.
For more of a cultural fix, head to the Government Museum and Venkatappa Art Gallery in Cubbon Park or visit Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace, with its graceful teak columns, pillars and arches.
For a dose of greenery, stroll among the tropical plants and flowers of Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, where the famous glasshouse is modelled on London’s Crystal Palace.
After a busy day’s sightseeing, return to the comfort of your three-star Bengaluru hotel for a relaxing night’s sleep.
