“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Heritage hotels have never been this cosy and homely. The staffs had been helpful and humble, and the rooms had that very CLASSIC touch!! My stay in Ahemdabad couldn't have been more memorable,thanks to the classic room #2, deluxe and GRAND, at the House of MG!

We ended up at this hotel after our other booking was messed up by agoda and it was a blessing in disguise.
The hotel is a lovely old heritage building with heaps of character and charm. We stayed in a standard room which was spacious and full of lots of nice personal touches. The food is great and the service we received from the staff was outstanding. They couldn't do enough to help us and made us feel like we were their only guests. My only criticism is that the standard rooms did not have mosquito nets which should be a given when you're paying £75 per night. If we were ever to return to Ahmedabad then we would definitely stay here again although next time we'd stay a room level up.

We organized a social function at Agashiye.

Without doubt, they offer the best Gujarati food. If you want to hog on it, this is the place. Just be there.

However, it could improve its rigid approach and service quality. Also, attend some infrastructural issues (ACs were not working for long). If they address these issues, they can be one of the best in India.

Charming place. Rooms are big, well arranged, clean. Staff is very friendly. Situated in The middle of the old city at walking distance from market areas, old houses. Do not hesitate to take a guide from the hôtel, absolutely no need for car+guide, guide who will Walk with you from the house is perfect. Do not miss the gujarati Thali in roof top restaurant. Not that expensive and one of best in town. Read the story of the house and learn more about the family who built the place !
Definitely to be qualified as a "must" try. We went there with our 5 young kids, staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Swim'ing pool is à delight after a historic tour.
Do not hesitate to go

Lovely hotel - with an old-world charm...
the rooms are so spacious that a business traveler isn't sure what to do with all the extra space!
though there's no room service, the staff will try and get you everything you need...

we ate at the rooftop restaurant - very very good food, and amazing ambience.
