“Good location, average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

The hotel is next to the airport which is the good part. Efficient and roomy, it is a good business hotel. However, the reception staff put me in a smoking room without asking for my preference (I am a non-smoker). No one was present at checkout when I left the hotel, I had to summon someone from inside the office. There was no security staff at the door when I checked out at 4:30AM giving an eerie sense of emptiness (security was sitting on the edge of the lawn). Could have given a moisturizer (like the Trident) instead of a shaving/dental kit which most travelers carry anyway. Good, efficient room service. Otherwise a good property with decent amenities.

Room Tip: Avoid room number 125-144 (long trip to those rooms which are right at the back of the hotel)

Love this hotel for its location (right next to airport) and comfort. Room was spotless and quiet. Foyer looking a bit tired though. Meals were average and service 'hesitant' at times. But overall, I'd stay there again.

Property was very good but not upto the standard of TAJ properties. Food was good. Rooms were very decent and average sized. Didnt use much facilities as i just stayed for 14hours but the hotel was good. very close to the airport.. Very ideal for over night stayers.

It's a nice hotel. I was staying for a day in the last month. I have enjoyed the breakfast and dinner. Room was good. Staffs are friendly and helpful. The price is little high for pick up & drop at airport, but otherwise I had spend a nice time in this hotel.

Stayed for a business trip over a weekend. The hotel is very close to the airport and good for those who have to catch an early morning flight. Stayed in a Garden facing room. The rooms are fairly spacious and well decorated. Taj does give you some of the best hotel beds to sleep on. The service is eager and helpful though the Vivantas of could stand out in professionalism. Buffet dinner, though was a disappointment. Nothing great taste wise. I had better meals at lesser hotels. Maybe an off day for the chef:(Overall it's value money with a nice pool and gym as well.

Was staying at Gateway Hotels after a long time.
was very happy with the trademark hospitality and the speak with 1 voice attitude shown by the staff at Taj Hotels
Property is old one but very neat, clean and safe
Proximity to airport and industrial area is a plus
Food is good.
I was on a short stay and hence could not use the gym and swimming pool which looks nice. Next time for sure
All in all a good experience
