It seems appropriate that the new Ista hotel chain makes its debut in Bangalore, a city that epitomizes modern India's cosmopolitan youthful energy. This business hotel sports a clean minimal look, with white walls, splintered glass accents, stainless steel fixtures, and enough bedside buttons to make a couch potato rejoice. The 143 rooms feel tight given the prices, but they have large windows even in the bathrooms and an ergonomically designed bed that is touted—somewhat exaggeratedly—to be the most comfortable in the city; the Penthouse Suites are sublime. The spa, though decent, has a long way to go before it reaches the level of the Ananda spa, Ista's sister property in the Himalayas.

When to go: October, to enjoy Diwali, India's biggest holiday; or August, when you can view giant statues of the elephant-god, Ganesh, being immersed in the Ulsoor Lake.
Which room to book: 529 has a private terrace garden overlooking the pool, as well as a lovely view of the lake.
Amenities: Bar/lounge, Beach, Gym, Pool
