We have stayed at many Starwood hotels, so decide to try an Aloft for the first time.
We arrived in Ahmedabad on a midnight flight, so checked in in the early hours.
The hotel seemed to be very new - our taxi driver from the airport had no English and didn't know where the hotel was located, so we had been driving around for some time, it was dark, and we had no idea where we were, it seemed like the middle of nowhere.
The hotel apparently works on a boiler system, so there was no hot water in our room when we arrived.
However, the room, though basic, was very clean and had everything necessary (which I think is the point of Aloft hotels), including a very big decent bed.
The water was hot by morning, and the shower very good. The breakfast was a non-event, but the serving staff very friendly and willing.
The staff is actually the main selling point of this hotel - they were charming, so pleasant and helpful and wanting to please, any shortcomings were forgiven.
On the front desk they were able to give us tips on what to do in Ahmedabad, where to eat, and arranged a car with driver, giving the driver exact instructions on where to take us and in which order (he didn't speak English), along with a map for us, marked with where we were going, and bottled water.
And when we left the hotel in the car in daylight, we realised in fact it is very close to the town - but you do need transport.
On our return at the end of the day, they greeted us like friends, asking how we enjoyed Ahmedabad.
I would recommend this hotel for a no-frills but comfortable stay.
