Stayed overnight at the Taj Gateway in Ahmedabad. It’s a five minute drive from the airport, so a very convenient location, depending on the nature of work – which in my case was business.
Due to a shortage of rooms, I was assigned a suite – which was incredibly spacious (the equivalent of 3 standard rooms) – with a seating area (equipped with a flatscreen TV), a dining room and finally a bedroom. The bed was very comfortable, and made for a god night's sleep after a long day.
The breakfast spread was reasonable, and lunch was mediocre, but I get the feeling the staff is not equipped to handle a large influx of guests as was the case then. I had to wait for 10 mins for cold milk with my breakfast cereal, and my club sandwich at lunch (probably the easiest to prepare from everything listed on their menu) took over 20 mins to arrive due to some confusion with the order.
This is intended to be the budget business chain within the Taj Group of hotels, so dont expect this to outperform that standard.More
