“An affordable luxury”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

It was an amazing experience at House of Mangal Das, Havelli; with 4 days for the price of 2 it was really a deal. The staff makes one feel at home. Though expensive (e.g. fruit platter with 5 banana + 5 chikoos for Rs 550 is too much) but the food and its Thali is really worth it.

The best part you don't feel like going out of hotel.

Luckily for us the staff upgrade our rooms from Delux to Super-delux which made it even more attractive.

Its better than staying in 5* hotel; cleanliness seems top priority to the staff.

Drawback: the breakfast could have been better; one thing that did not match the luxury - Fruit platter looked very cheap quality. Though we are not voracious eater still we used to eat sumptuous breakfast at 5* hotels buffet breakfasts with varieties of items to choose from. But here it was very limited (5-6 items) but severed with Royal grandeur; seems guest were charged for that and not for food.

So, I will deduct One Star for not providing a good breakfast; otherwise everything deserves top rating.

Room Tip: Choose room on top floor. Ground floor has no windows / no sunlight.

Beautiful building and fantastic decor. Spacious rooms, helpful staff. The location is good and the restaurants are a particular highlight. Eating Gujarati thali on the rooftop under the stars is particularly magical

The Place is unique in Ahmedabad given it is a Gigantic House in the middle of the city converted into a hotel and restaurant. The ambience is very soothing and we enjoyed gujarati thali in candle light on the terrace. The food is delicious and the service is very good. BUT when the bill arrives, you are forced to think whether it was worth it! If you haven't been there its definitely worth visiting once!

The House of MG is a unique property in ahmedabad with heritage type rooms and ambiance.
The Gujarati Food is amazing and the rooms and service are good.
I felt this is over priced in terms of stay as well as food charges.
Since this is right in the heart of old city, dont expect silent and serene time.

The House of MG is a hotel, but it is a hotel built in and around a stunning house built in the early 20th century by an Ahmedabad textile king. The house is extraordinary - more like a cheerful catacomb than a normal hotel, and I suspect that there are no room duplicates - they're all different. Our room was enormous - it must have been over 10 X 10 M in size, and was generously equiped with fine furniture. The unique and delightful physical plant of this hotel was enhanced by the hotel staff, who are willing to do almost anything (within legal limits!) to make your stay better. There are two restaurants in the hotel, the "Green Room" on the ground floor for casual breakfast/lunch/dinner, and a restaurant on the roof that does traditional dinners. Try them both.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are on the street side of the hotel and may be noiser that those towards the back.

The House of MG is a historic property that has been converted into a boutique type hotel. Because of this each room is different and interesting. We had a wonderful room, a large space with a large bathroom. To get to it you had to walk through the room where the public toilets are...not a concern, just a curiosity. The property itself was interesting and the location is perfect for exploring the old city. The room staff was wonderful. The front desk staff was spotty but usually helpful. The boutique was dark and thus difficult to get a good idea of the colors of the textiles and the staff were completely indifferent to our presence. The restaurant on the main floor is casual with average food and wait staff. If we return to Ahmedabad we would consider other accommodation options but this location was perfect for us and the historic element is very interesting. If this review seems confusing, that is an accurate reflection of our experience at the House of MG.

We were a group of 19 women! We descended upon The House of MG in February 2012. This was the last stop on a whirlwind trip of Gujarat for 11 days. We had saved the best for last! The House of MG was amazing in every way! The rooms were all special and unique. My room had a swing in it. They were comfortable, well-appointed and made you feel like a guest in the home of MG. There were books from their personal library in every room too. The food was soooo good! Pace yourself, as there is a lot of delicious food! We had a traditional thali dinner at their restaurant, Agayshe which means rooftop terrace. The restaurant is on the rooftop and you can hear the sounds of the city as you feast on a delicious Gujarati meal. The waiters are all traditionally dressed and provide impeccable service. Their outdoor restaurant on the ground floor was fabulous too! We had lots of delicious Gujju snacks & specialties!! The service was fabulous too! The staff were very helpful & accommodating. I wanted to courier my shopping to my home and the courier was brought to my room. My package was packed in front of me, the necessary paperwork & payment done and off it went. It arrived home as promised. Keshavbhai took great care of our group! Thank you to House of MG for a fabulous stay & amazing memories!! I didn't want to leave & I'm waiting to go back!!!! :)

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique & special. My only caution for travelers is that since this is a herita...
