I've stayed at this property multiple times during my business visits to Vizag and each time the staff there have tried all they can to make my stay comfortable. They have been open to feedback and more importantly work on the feedback given to them. Food is absolutely fantastic and makes it for a more fulfilling stay :-)

The service was excellent @ room service, retro, bar & reception etc.. and you maintained hygiene, delicious food & pleasant environment in the hotel. Even the fragrance in the floors was so good. Overall I spent my time so cool.

I checked into this hotel for a two night stay assuming it would be the same level of quality as Taj properties. It was not. The room we were given had a decent view of the sea but we found a hair on our bed which basically tarnished the whole experience. The housekeeping apologized and changed rooms but the new... More

I stayed in room with view to Bay of Bengal. The room is ok but toilet was old fashioned and ill maintained. The staff was courteous and helpful. The restaurant is quite too far with no directions. Night time view of the hotel is shabby. Nice gym and pool is the plus point. Just an average hotel unlike Taj property!

I stayed for a night at Gateway Vizag on my return from somewhere deep in Odisha. My colleague had recommended this place several times and I had a chance to stay here. The property seems a little old, but well maintained with none of the seedy smell associated with aged properties. The location is fantastic as it is located right... More

Its value for money ! It offers a great service ...good quality of products, staff v good. The room service places a tray of fruits which for me is so healthy way of munching rather than other foods. Also there is a dedicated channel for yoga, loved that. And to top it a yog mat !!! Couldn't have asked for... More
