Perhaps this hotel doesn't (as others have indicated) really rate as a 5-Star... not being a typical 5-Star hotel kind of gal, I can't speak to that. I can say that I loved my two different stays at the Gateway. The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating, from the front desk clerks to the housekeeping team, to the security guard at the front door. I found the decor to be quite charming, comfortable, and unique/authentic (no cookie cutter 'boutique hotel' design here). The beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms very nice. I will say that the food wasn't stunning, though it was better than okay. And filtered ice in the bar was a welcome find. Pool area is lovely, and I wish we'd had more time to enjoy it. At one point, after a hectic day of traveling from Jaipur to Agra, I joked to my friend about moving in to the hotel. Permanently. So I guess you could say I liked it.
