“Wonderful heritage hotel in a bustling city”
Reviewed 1 November 2006

This is a lovely hotel. The staff are very helpful, the rooms clean and spacious and the food in Agashiye is tasty and an interesting experience.
There's an English speaking tuktuk driver on call who is knowledgeable about the city.
I have not posted photos as the hotel has an informative web site with excellent 360 degree photos of each room.
If you want dinner at the outdoor restaurant , the Green Room, go early. It is popular with locals and we were unable to dine there and forced to sit on a terrace near the pool where we were the only people. That lacked atmosphere!
The Meridian Hotel nearby has a very good restaurant so the following evening we dined there.

Reviewed 17 October 2006

First impressions of the hotel was that it didnt resemble the website photos . It is located at a very busy junction/roundabout in the city centre of bustling Ahmedabad.
Rooms are massive and spacious to the extreme and the bathrooms were surprisingly modern and cool . Although the rooms were clean and pretty they werent very cosy. The 2 restaurants are your best bet for food in the city of vegetarians and Thali . The swimming pool is very much out of the way and a bit strange , not very private . General public can use it although we didnt see anybody using it nor felt a desire to use it ourselves .
Ahmedabad is not really a tourist destination but if you must then this is the best place to stay .

  • Liked — The gujarati thali and the bathrooms
  • Disliked — The pool was too far from rooms and lacked privacy
  • Tips/Secrets — Ahmedabad is differant but quite charmless

House of MG remains an oasis of beauty, which is hard to imagine in the midst of the maelstrom of Ahmedabad traffic. Not only was our terrace room complete with a wonderful moghul type swing, but had several surprizes that took our breath away. The hotel has wonderful old tile floors and has preserved the gorgeous woodwork of a byegone age. Guests at House of MG are transported to another more peaceful and oppulent age. Definitely to be highly recommended.
