So many things go to making a good hotel. But what makes a great place, will always be a combination of great staff and san attendance to detail that is driven by the desire to be hospitable: to delight guests by anticipating and surpassing their needs.
We arrived after staying in quite rough surroundings, so the comfort of the MG was quite stunning. We were introduced by the kind and thoughtful staff to our unbelievably nice suite: spacious, immaculately clean with a delicious bed and fabulous bathroom. A typical detail: the choice of videos in the DVD library was brilliant.. Food in the downstairs coffee bar was delicious and innovative, but the food on the roof terrace was probably they best we've had in India in several visits. exquisitely well prepared and served.
The hotel is in a great location, too: within walking distance of the Old City, and within walking distance of the one hotel where you can acquire a licence to buy alcohol. (If you are coming into Ahmedebad by plane, you can get this licence at the airport at the tourist office. I'd recommend that you do that.
It's not cheap. But it's really worth economising to stay here. It is absolutely splendid.
BTW I simply do not understand the criticism voiced elsewhere on Tripadvisor: this was not our experience or that of other people we spoke to. This is a place to savour and to return to.
