“Good Place, decent food, can improve on service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I visited Ahmedabad for the first time in my life on 9th July 2014. I was scheduled to conduct a workshop at the Metropole Hotel in Ahmedabad on 10th and 11th July 2014.

I arrived at Ahmedabad by flight at 11 PM and the hotel car was waiting for me. The hotel is just about 20 mins distance from the airport. The journey was uneventful.

At the hotel, the check in was quite efficient. I had already informed the hotel about my late arrival and they had made arrangements for me.

The Room: The room allocated to me was pretty nice, about 200 Square Feet. There was a wardrobe with the usual hangers and an electronic safe to store valuables. The bathroom was decent enough, even though the shower could be improved as the water pressure was not good enough. Maybe the shower head needs a cleaning?

The double bed was luxurious, with a nice, firm mattress and good bed linen. The room had the usual mini bar, but without any alcohol - remember, this is Gujarat, a dry state!

The TV was large and the choice of channels was OK.

Food: The food was served either in the cafe at the ground floor, or in the room. I opted for room service. Service was OK, could be a tad faster. Usually, if you order an item, you expect it in 15-20 mins. Here it took more than 25 mins both times. And I did not order anything exotic!

Conference room: We were allocated a conference room for our workshop. The room could seat 20 people with some effort. Thankfully, we were only 15. Tea, coffee and snacks were served in the room itself. It was a good effort. When we had a technical problem right on day 1, the hotel's tech team solved it promptly!

Overall, a good place for business travel. Now only if the Gujarat government removed prohibition and allowed a fellow to have a drink or two after a hard day!

I made this reservation on the fly just before boarding the plane to Ahmedabad. On arrival I was relieved to see that this hotel had a booth. A very helpful person called the hotel and arranged a car to pick us up from the airport and in about 15 minutes we were on the way to the hotel.

The hotel is conveniently located in the center of the city and it took us about 30 minutes to get there from the airport. The welcome at the front desk was very warm and the manager came out of the office to welcome us personally. He also asked us if we would be returning to the city frequently and promised us a corporate deal if we return. Since the room was booked through a website, he could not offer a cheaper rate but did upgrade the room.

The room was small but neat and clean. The bathroom was also clean and water pressure was excellent. Room service was brisk and efficient and they were eager to please. I had a follow up call asking if I enjoyed the meal. I did. They also have a 24/7 café and I had breakfast which was included in the room rate. It was a modest buffet with eggs to order. They also made some Indian food to order. The buffet while not expansive was more than adequate. Service at the restaurant was also brisk, efficient and friendly.

The front desk was happy to arrange a car and driver for us. This was done with minimum notice and they made sure we had the same English speaking driver the next day. The driver gave us a mini guided tour on the way to our meeting and took my colleague for a sightseeing tour after our meetings had ended.

Checkout was a breeze and the front desk staff asked us if we enjoyed our stay and they wanted my feedback about things that could be improved. They seemed to genuinely care about their guests.

If you want to stay in a hotel with a reasonable tariff this is a great choice. I plan on returning and staying here..

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main street. They are quiter

This nice hotel is quite close to the Ashram & Riverfront park. The Front desk staff is efficient along with the rest of the staff. The rooms are quite spacious and the beds with tick mattress and ample pillows are very comfortable and the bath fittings are good quality. The Metropole employees were always kind and helpful. The food was delicious.

Every once in a while I get super bold and do something out of the ordinary in May After spending seven beautiful days with them I feel the need to tell everyone how wonderful they are. As I was apprehensive to be so far from home and worried about how I would be treated,those fears were completely unfounded. The Metropole employees were always kind and helpful. The food was delicious and room service always predicted what we were going to order for dinner. The door attendants always made sure the taxis knew where we were headed and gave me cards to ensure that we returned safely. Our trip continued on to Delhi and then Bengaluru, but the Metropole remains one of our treasured memories. Great staff, service, food and location!

This nice hotel is quite close to the Ashram. The Front desk staff is efficient along with the rest of the staff. Mr. Manish needs a special mention due to his friendliness and helpfulness to us.

The rooms are quite spacious and the beds with tick mattress and ample pillows are very comfortable and the bath fittings are good quality. The restaurant serves excellent meals and the service is also quite quick.

I will recommend this hotel to all

The Metropole is a decent hotel in Ahmedabad with comfortable rooms. The hotel has a fitness centre which is a definite plus for the health conscious. Food is good though there is a very limited choice for non-vegetarians. Basically only chicken dishes were available and there was only one non-vegetarian dish in the dinner buffet which, otherwise, was nice. The hotel is located at Subhash circle and one has good commutation options nearby.
