“Excellent, feel at home!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I am a frequent traveller on business trips to Nashik and Ahmedabad. And I chose Sarovar Portico during my trips. Sarovar Portico, Ahmedabad is just an awesome place for stay. I was there for 2 nights during Feb 1st week. They have calm, ambient, spacious rooms. Plus the rooms are neat and tidy. Bathrooms are clean and it has a jacuzzi which is noteworthy. Their Service is good and staff are quite friendly. Food is excellent except that the menu they have for breakfast is just repetitive which they have to look on. Overall, its an excellent place to stay.

Stayed in Feb 2013 for 1 Night. Clean & Good Rooms. Bed was very nice. Food was OK could have been better.

However what bugged me most was their Illogical Practice regarding Pick / Drop from Airport. They only offered Free Pick. However I did not want a Pick BUT a Drop. However the Front Desk guys refused that and said its just their Policy that Pick-Up is only Free. I fail to understand it costs the same so why can't they offer one of the either? THEN YOU TALK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!

This is posted as a 4 star hotel and I would give it 2 at best. I stayed 2 nights and slept llittle and badly.
The first night was in a 'standard' room which measured 3x3.5m. The windows didnt close properly and the view overlooked a slum. During the night the noise was constant with shouting and frequent dogfights - the hotel was full so a room change was only possible the next day to a premium room for which I was charged extra!! Even in this room the windows didnt close fully and the noise from the street an the lawn are prevented getting a decent sleep.
The WiFi was through a bought card via Tata so no hotel internet service was possible other than at the 'business centre'
The building was run down and in dire need of renovation, no european news channels - which I need when travelling and whilst it wasnt the hotels fault the noise from other guests didnt help matters.
Staff tried hard - mostly - but at the end of the day this is not a hotel for business travel.

Room Tip: If you have to stay here - get a room at the back and overlooking the green area to the left of the...

I had visited Sarovar Portico, in January 2013 on a business tour.
Breakfast was superb, fantastic, wide-spread.
Room was a single occupancy, full value for money. Bathroom was clean, exhaust was missing !
Overall decent place to stay - good value for the money you are paying

Best in class hotels to stay...stayed in for 2 nights, excellent food and service. Liked the room very much, was neat and tidy. I reached the hotel late at 11 pm and was afraid whether any room service would be available, but they had room service for selected food items from 11.30 to 6 am or else i would have to sleep empty stomach, thanx Sarovar for that.
Would recommend everyone.

I had visited Sarovar Portico, in February 2013, As I was attending a friends wedding.
Breakfast was superb, fantastic, wide-spread. Room which I stayed was a single occupancy, ideal for the cost. The best part of the room was it had a sideview of the riverfront, It had a rainfall shower, the bathroom fittings were new and the bathroom was newly renovated. A few things as a suggestion to add is, there needs to be an exhaust fan in the bathroom.
I was pleased by the hospitality of Rajiv and Mr Mahato, The restaurant manager. who served me hot milk with turmeric when I was struggling with a throat infection.
I would give 98 on 100 for Sarovar Portico, Ahmedabad

Room Tip: Prefer rooms on the higher floors as the higher floor rooms are renovated.

I recommend this option strongly for Ahmedabad. Its a very convenient hotel in Ahmedabad. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast spread is huge and classy. There are good restaurants around too like Silver Leaf restaurant in Hotel Cama next to it.

Room Tip: Try for a river facing room at a higher level
