Its a well maintained hotel - being a hotel which is more about 40 years old.. Stayed here with family for about 4 days.. Service by the old staff is excellent.. The river facing rooms are wonderful.. but the harsh heat of Ahmedabad is a bit too much for the AC.. So as the heat increases - a stronger Air-Conditioning system would have to be installed..

Loved going back to the Silver-Leaf and La-Vista..

Lawn and pool are well maintained.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the east side (road facing) in summers..

I stayed on a business trip to Ahmedabad of one night, as this hotel is quite close to my local office. The room was quite good but handling at reception and overall service is lacking. Although I asked for river facing room, they put me on a roadside room with a promise to change later, which never happened even after several requests. The staff needs proper training. Food at Cama is good over many years. The location is also quite good. A room on riverside will be more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Insist for a riverside room than settling with a roadside room.

This was my second stay here at Cama. The hotel is situated at the old part of the Ahmedabad city. There is a very high wall on the bag opposite to the entrance of the hotel, which I was told is more than 200 years old. The hotel is more than 40 years old and well connected to all major attractions of the city. Hotel’s rooms are really spacious and recently refurbished (I was given Room No 308). But the quality of the bed & linen could have been better. Overall sleep quality was good. This hotel has a well maintained lush green Lawn with a small pool. One should ask for the rooms overlooking the garden and a river behind the garden. The hotel has a small gymnasium with limited equipments but all equipments are brand new.
Foods are ok but bit spicy, breakfast spreads were limited, but the staffs were very friendly and helpful. Room rates were reasonable as ours were a corporate tieup, I would recommend hotel Cama to fellow travelers being a “Value for money”.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking the Garden.

We stayed at Cama for 2 nights, Expecting 4star service, facilties, and food. Well on all counts it was a disappointment. We reached in the evening and were allocated room309, escorted till the room, the concierege opens the room, good enough till here. Surprise, surprise surprise as we entered there was a huge suitcase opened right in the doorway. well obviously it was already occupied!!! We're shifted to 311, nice. ( thought should go and have a chat with the occupants of room309 about privacy and security.)
As it was late, had dinner at La vista resaurant. Food was too spicy!!! And now they make a fuss about the bill. I wanted to pay it there and then, and these people tell me they would go and ask if it is allowed (as if they've opened the place yesterday)
Wow, coming back to the room, there's no bathtub. Amazing.
Breakfast is a choice between some really pieces of dry bread, omlettes, and a cup cake. No cheese, amazing!

I had read some glowing reviews, but my experience was BAD. After paying 5 grand for a night, definetly BAD

Room Tip: Obviously the riverside room. Otherwise dont bother to go to it atall!!!

After 10 days touring Gujurat, we returned to Ahmedabad and stayed 2 nights at the Cama.
The location is good, backing on to the river (a few hundred metres from Le Meridien), a short ride from various sites. The lobby is spacious and well maintained. Reception staff were helpful, helping-out with our wi-fi connection (chargeable) and advice on ATM location (3 minute walk), sightseeing and shopping (no, no commissions were paid!).
The rooms are well sized, clean and comfortable and recently refurbished. The bathroom good with good water pressure and hot water. We overlooked the hotel entrance and initially thought the night would be noisy but no, the city noise went to bed too (by about 21:00) and we had a good night's sleep.
The hotel has a lovely garden and pool area to the rear - overlooking the river - a nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle that is India. Breakfast is served in the restaurant that overlooks the garden. Breakfast selection was good (we always eat Indian) as was the service.
There is an excellent textile shop in the basement, directly opposite the Silver Leaf cafe, which serves good food (it won food awards in 2010 and 2011).

The room is of a good quality for a 4 star indian hotel. Good bargains may be obtained with Stayzilla an indian hotel website. Best rooms are on the swimming pool side . Upper floors may be advised. Breakfast is quite complete with indian and european food.
Rick saws wait for you outside of the hotel and the price for a small trip is very decent (20 to 40 rupees). Anice and cheap restaurant (southern indian cuisine) is recommended (50 meters on the left of the hotel).

Room Tip: On the swimming pool side (riverside) these rooms are quieter
