It's a different kind of properly . The feel of the stay is very homely , you feel home away from home. The decor is amazing . The service is also amazing apart from one point that they say something and do something else so I guess the desk manager is bit confused with things . They don't provide you... More

The hotel, the tapestry, the choice of colour, the staff, the location, the ambiance all has been preserved for all its past glory. The photographs of the owner family in rooms, all add to the nostalgia of place. Food quality is great. Enjoyed every moment of my stay.

Like other reviewers, I found the building beautiful and atmospheric. And the location has both advantages and disadvantages as it is in the center of the old section of the city. I found the staff to be a little less helpful than in other hotels in India, however. For example, I asked the staff to call to book a visit... More

Look past the traffic noise and some older features of this hotel and stay here when in Ahmedabad. Spend some time admiring the details of the facade and interior decorations. The room I as (4) is on the street side and has a view of the Sidi Saiyyed mosque. The sitting room has a couch and a swing but is... More

This was my second time at this hotel in two years. If you are visiting Ahmedabad, this is the place to stay. It's a thoughtfully restored hotel, with many gorgeous design features, including a creative use of materials that have been upcycled and/or given a second life of greater beauty! The entrance is welcoming with its waster features and floral... More

The hotel is situated in a beautiful heritage house. The rooms are enormous and they make you feel you are on the previous century. The staf is friendly, the restaurant is cozy, perfect for a typical gujarat dinner. The location is good for those interested in the hystorical old city, just in front of the famous Sidi Saiyyed mosque and... More

We had not expected much of Ahmedabad as a city. Our visit designed to see the Calico Museum and an IPL match, so we were pleasantly surprised by this exceptional heritage hotel in the heart of the city. It is a beautifully restored characterful property with courtyard gardens and splendid pool and spa as well as two restaurants, one Thali,... More

We can understand that this hotel is in a great location for exploring the heritage area of Ahmedabad and is in itself an interesting concept being converted from an historic office but this does have drawbacks. Our room, although immaculately clean, did not have an outside window. True, there were 2 windows but both looked out on to corridors so... More

Aesthetically this is a most pleasing accomodation. Everything is very tastefully done and in this respect it beats almost all of the Maharaja-Palace-hotels in Gujarat. If staying here in Ahmedabad, it makes sense to pass away most of the time in here, for example in the beautiful indoor swimming-pool. Walking out of the hotel is a traffic nightmare. Theres is...
