“Great staff good hotel but could do with a little TLC”
Reviewed 17 June 2010

We paid Rs1000 (plus 10% tax) for a room for two (there are cheaper rooms availiale). The hotel is in a good location right in the middle of town just behind the House of MG (the Green House restaurant there is well worth a visit). It's a couple of kilometers from the train station to the hotel but a tuk-tuk should only cost 20 to 30 rupee. There's no internet access at the hotel but there's a very cheap internet cafe just around the corner (Rs15 per hour).

Our room had cable TV, fan, air con and a private bathroom with hot water shower. The room was fairly clean by Indian budget/mid-range hotel standards but was starting to show its age. With a little more T.L.C and a fresh lick of paint this would be a great hotel rather than an average one. The staff were really friendly and we thought that the room was good value for money. A big bonus is the 24 hour check-in.

In summary - not a bad place to stay if you need a night in Ahmedabad.

My big complaint with Indian hotels is that they tend to be overpriced and dirty (especially when compared to South East Asian countries). However, this hotel was clean, centrally located, and with friendly staff. The rooms are a bit dated, but very clean. For about Rs. 1000 you get a 'upgraded' room - that's a pretty solid deal for this place.

I stood here in July 2009 and had a good experience. Though the rooms are a bit dated the value, location and the staff make up for it. The rooms are clearly from 10-15 ears ago but they are comfortable and clean. the staff was friendly and helpful. the location is good but has a hitch in the fact the it is at the end of a small side street so it can at times be difficult to get a taxi to the front door but its is only a few hundred feet down the block so if you find a landmark to tell them where to turn it is no problem. the rooms were very reasonably priced for what we found in the rest of town.

Hotel Volga is tucked away at the foot of Laal Darwaaza but WHAT A GEM! The front desk staff were just SO lovely, especially Anish who was just like my uncle being there, he made me feel very much at home. He was even able to suggest a beauty salon where I could go and have a facial - now what man can do that?! The room itself was great value with AC and private bathroom for only 800Rs, total bargain and also room service for food which was very very tasty! The shower was piping hot and everything was damn clean. Even got a newspaper everyday - for that price it's DEFINITELY worth it especially with the lack of good hotels in Ahmedabad - definitely stay here!!

Reviewed 31 March 2009

Staff were great, arranged pick up from the airport and were very welcoming. 24 hour check in meant we still had a base but didn't need to pay for an extra night. Room was clean, and bathroom had a decent shower and toilet. We were given soap and shampoo. A nice cold litre of water from room service was reasonable at 15 rupees. Hotel was just off the main drag so it was quiet.

Rooms/Price:
Rooms are decent, not luxury; the hotel is mentioned in the LonelyPlanet. Nearly all hotels mentioned in the LP increased their prices considerably because of that free LonelyPlanet advertisement - but NOT Hotel Volga. Paid Rs600 for single room in Nov 2008. Thumbs up for not ripping travellers off and keeping prices flat! I would recommend the place.

Staff:
friendly, no complaints

Location:
You need a rikshaw from the trainstation, hotel is behind a main street, so its rather centrally located but quiet
