The rooms are bit small , but are clean & comfortable.
Room service is good. Didn't tried SPA, so can not comment on it.
View from room was great ... nice Sabaramati river with decent city view.
The location of hotel is far away from Airport or Railway station.
Food is good .. tried buffet package.

All in all .. it's a good option in Ahemdabad.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you, for your recent stay at Sarovar Portico Ahmedabad and for your valuable feedback on Tripadvisor.

Your positive comments about clean and comfortable rooms and good food are much appreciated. We have noted the concern you have highlighted regarding rooms being a bit small and are working towards improving the same, as we are in a phase-wise of room renovations. We would be glad to have our newly renovated rooms given/blocked for you on your next visit.

We have a Fitness Centre with state-of-the-art equipment but unfortunately no spa and since we are on the other side of the river we are actually the closest to the airport which is 8km and the railway station 3 km in distance.

We look forward to welcoming you back at Sarovar Portico Ahmedabad.

Yours sincerely

if ur pocket allows go for some another hotel...really no complains in the price range they offer...reception and staff are friendly and even they have a bath tub in the smallest of their bathrooms...safety is good but if u can shell out more than 3k for a single nite...go for some another....riksha drivers dont know this hotel so popularly so tell the to take u to cama hotel khanpur...just 2 minute walking distance from there....happy journey...

Room Tip: tell them to give u a river facing room...

Recently stayed in this property for 2 nights while on a business travel. For starters, the location of this hotel is very ordinary. There's just no buzz around this place. As soon as I entered the hotel, there was a strange smell in the lobby which didn't leave even in the corridoors. Well shockingly, it was there in the room too which the hotel staff tried to fix by spraying room freshners. The rooms were old styled and crampy, the ones you would see in C- centre city hotels.
Though the Breakfast was good and staff courteous. All in all , a very average experience. I guess they need to figure a way out to renovate the rooms for a more modern feel.

Stayed for a few days. Good place to stay. Food seems to be ok. Breakfast needs to be a bit more available choices. The staff are courteous. location is not prime. My room offered a splendid view of the sabarmati river. viewed the news moon over the sabarmati river from the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room
