Standard rooms don't include a bath tube and the shower doesn’t always provide stabilized-temperature water so you’ll get alternatively burnt or chilled even if you don’t try to adjust the temperature. No washing is also a possibility but if you go out and given the hotel’s external environment it is not recommended. I strongly recommend you ask for a room that is on the opposite side of the main road otherwise you share the permanent honking of the motorbikes, scooters, trucks, buses + all the extremely noisy religious processions that flow along that road - and they use bomb-like firecrackers - at the beginning of my stay I thought it was terrorist attacks. No at all, local people are just happy making so much noise ! Well, don’t panic if you are located on that wrong side anyway, there are fewer vehicles on this avenue after 1:00 AM…Noise isolation from the lobby is also limited : if your neighbor comes back late and discuss with his friend(s) you'll certainly hear them, loud and clear. Besides, room are clean and beds are comfortable, with various kind of pillows. If you let the A/C on during day time you can turn it off when you are back in the night and, until the next midday you won’t have to turn it on again. TV channels provide a very large range of local channels and a bunch of Western channels, with relatively poor streaming…pixels and pixels right at the breathtaking moment of course. Internet access is not great (best I could get was 300 kb/s - in average it is close to 150 kb/s) but compare with other places in India it is actually no so bad.
The gym is too small for the hotel and is often packed. The food is average to good with various flavors and styles along with relatively cheap prices (most expensive item on room service menu is about US$ 8). Don’t forget that you are in Gujarat and that the hotel is not supplying any alcoholic beverages (but they have non-alcoholic beer). There is not much to see in the close vicinity, except if you like to wander in shanty towns (opposite to hotel) or residential area (back of the hotel). If you dare crossing a few avenues you’ll find a bunch of shopping malls with attractive prices for famous brand garment. Security is relatively good (every entering car is searched and they even have a dog that is supposed to be - my guess - an explosive-detection living device). Employees are very helpful and try to make your stay as good as possible without bothering you. It seems also a popular place for well-off locals as there are often events organized there. All in all a good value for money and a relaxing place after a working day outside.
