We had a merchandise presentation in Ahmedabad and my visit was scheduled at the last minute. My colleague was put up here i.e. at Shanti Sadan Hotel and hence i decided to stay one night in the same room along with him.
The hotel is located near Ellis Bridge and is 10 kms away from the airport.
It is more like a good decent neat budget lodge than a hotel. It is on the 3rd floor of a commercial building. So you would take time to locate the same if you are looking for a hotel with a proper entrance and reception at ground floor - as the same does not exist.
Don't expect porters or bell boy to help carry your luggage (I did not have much ... but just informing) as the Hotel staff will never know that a tourist has come till you reach the 3rd floor. The building has an Elevator.
The check in was normal and fast and I joined my colleague in room no 311. The reception cum lounge is a small area with a small TV... kept clean.
The hotel does not have any restaurant and all they serve is tea, coffee and bread butter.
The rooms are neither small nor big (as compared to same category budget hotels). 2 people can stay comfortably in the room. The bed was comfortable. The Split AC worked perfectly but we did not need it as ... being December... nights were pretty chilled and comfortable.
The bathroom is also aptly sized and was clean.
Sleep quality was good. The walls and doors are slightly thin and morning hustle bustle of the hotel was clearly heard in the early hours in our room.
The hotel did have wi-fi but we did not inquire of the rates as had our own wi-fi dongle.
The hotel is in a well organised crowded market place and one will get everything including restaurants, food, medicines, fruits etc within 2 minutes of walking distance.
There is no other facility and hence no point extending this review.
To conclude, good option for a budget business or salesman traveller who needs one or two nights stay or sleep...... in comparison to same level budget hotels or lodges.
