“good location, comfortable hotel, reasonable price”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

I have stayed here for GAP/INN since 2001 onwards on many occasions. This hotel has changed a little over the years except some changes in the reception area (restaurant is bigger, door is from inside the reception, coffee shop is not separate now but restaurant is coffee shop!)... rooms are similar over the years.

ROOMS: good rooms, good cooling, windows open to railway track on one side and to other buildings on another side. so not much of a view. Rooms have a comfortable old style sofa chairs, table, fridge, TV, desk to work on, and old fashioned granite bathroom. I felt this time they need to renovate the rooms too. They are fine for now, but surely with rapidly changing hotels around (Holiday Inn is at similar price) they need to change things faster than they perhaps might think.

STAFF: Staff is fine except how they behave awkwardly to ask for tips. This is really uncomfortable experience and am very concerned about this, hope hotel management deals with this issue well. Even the staff who brought filled in water jug to our room expected tip everytime. It was his duty as part of daily room service, is not it?

LOCATION of this hotel is great - we could go all around in 'auto' within 3-20 min - so very good location.

FOOD: Interesting - they serve non-veg food in room (room menu) but not in the hotel (hotel is pure vegetarian). Breakfast is a small buffet - it is fine.

INTERNET: slow, at times does not work.

Room Tip: do not take the room with window towards railway track - (to avoid sight of open air toilet)

Well been here a couple of times, this property earlier was a part of the Taj Group of Hotels, the rooms are well made and the food is impressive. Breakfast spread is very good. Its a nice place to stay for a short duration and more for business travellers.

Room Tip: Decent option for Ahmedabad

The service and the rooms are average. Don't expect anything great. The food on the other hand is really good. Khichdi was my favourite. The staff is alright but can still improve a bit. The location is a real advantage as you can get anywhere in 10-20 minutes.

Centrally located, near Ellisbridge has a simple ambience, friendly people, with Airport pick up and Drop. The food is excellent with a good portion or i would say value for money.
Breakfast is simple, but you do not have to much of choice.
Room are comfortable, clean and well spaced.

Room Tip: Choose room towards the road side

The Westend is located conviniently near Gujarat college just 20 minutes from mail railway station and about 30 to 40 minutes from the airport. The rooms are quite good with all the basic amenities , very neat and clean . the bathroom although small is also very clean and well maintained . The restaurant is also good and the complimentry breakfast is also nice.
The hotel is just 10 minutes distance from the famous Law garden ( those interested in morning walk /jogging will be happy to be here joining the morning walkers and not to be disspointed those interested in shopping , of course the traditional market opens after teh dusk ) .

Room Tip: Its advisable not to take the rooms with windows facing the railway tracks

I stayed their for a night on 1st of June. I didnot find the value component in the whole deal. More so when I found the quality missing. AC was making the room hotter and there have been a host of mosquitoes in the room ... along with small sized cockroaches. Very basic breafast as complementary.
Positives: Yes the best part is the location ... centrally located ... Food quality ( Non veg) was awsome.Staffs are good.
