“worst ever place to stay”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This the government owned property in gandhinagar. The staff is next to irritating. do not know how to handle tasks at the reception. no one to carry your luggage. rooms are ill equipped. AC seems to be installed to throw hot air in the month May and that too in a miserable condition, almost all blades broken. food served in the restraunt actually makes you crazy. Balcony of the room is ofcourse big but you will all restraunt boys relaxing in front of it. so it serves no purpose.

do not expect the reception people to arrage a taxi for you. Chances are much that you will miss your flight but the taxi will n ot arrive. the lady on the reception behaves as if she has done a favour by giving the room to you.

its actually less how much you write about this hotel. very bad stay. no cleanliness, soggy bedsheets and what not.

"Highly recommended"
Was travelling on business to Gandhinagar and was to be put up in Ahmedabad. Unfortunately, that booking was bungled and had to co-ordinate a last moment booking at Pathikashram.
Service:
For a last moment rescheduling, the staff was very co-operative on the phone. Directions and approx rates were arranged for. English, Hindi and Gujarathi are main languages. Reception staff and housekeeping staff well mannered even at 10 PM. Credit cards accepted without any surcharge. Food ordered through room service arrived in a reasonable amount of time. The restaurants close at around 10.30. You should order well in advance.
Room:
Spacious enough. AC works well. TV with most channels available. Hot running water and basic kits provided (Dental, shaving, soaps, clean towels). Comfy double bed - a bit short in length - I'm 5' 10'' and my feet were outside the bed. Has an attached balcony. Very airy. The windows and doors are old world (bolts and twisty locks) but functional.
Location:
Bang near the ST stand. Across a road. Quite a large area for the hotel. A lot of rooms available easily. I saw a couple of speciality restaurants (Gujarathi and Rest of India). They can arrange for taxis / autos if asked for. No breakfast included in the package I got. (Rs. 1500 per night for a Single occupancy). The hotel is very near many Offices (GSPC, SBI, Udyog Bhavan etc.).
Food quality is very good. Saw only vegetarian options. Breakfast available from 6.30 AM.
Best liked Feature:
Location and value for money.
Least liked feature:
Slide to unlock bolts on the doors. Unlockability of rooms from outside.

Hotel Pathikashma is built by Gujarat government and now handed over to maintenance on lease. Hotel has very good space and rooms are good and maintained. Location is best in Gandhinagar. Just behind the ST Bus Stand so connectivity is good. Almost all room has attached spacious balcony. Food is OK. Number of rooms are good so chances of availability is fair.
