Gateway Surat is about 20 km from Hazira industrial area, easy to reach in 30 minutes & its also convenient to reach hotel from Railway station & airport. Tried the local Surti food - very different & spicy, otherwise there is lot many options of Indian & continental food.
One should avoid rooms on the city side - the cooling unit & wedding-party lawn is too noisy. Take care - lobby carpet is too spongy to loose balance!! Rooms are spacy & clean. Overall a very good place to stay in Surat.

Excellent Hotel with very good service and hygiene. The best attraction of this hotel would be the Buffet Lunch in just Rs275 --- which is almost a steal Deal. Don't miss it. It is best dela what you can get in an unimmaginable price in Taj Hotel. Food is excellent. It was very good experience staying in this hotel - unforgettable time in Surat.

This was a nice hotel and I guess it was this or the Grand Bhagwati. The Bhagwati is pure veg so I the Gateway was my choice. It is a good hotel with a good breakfast choice but limited dining in the evening, only 2 restaurants, the breakfast place or "Spices" which is all hot and spicey and definitely I hate this. There are no nearby restaurants witihin walking distance so limited choice if you have no transport. Room was OK, shower was OK but suffered pressure problems in the morning, otherwise everything was OK but not spectacular. The 3 night room deal was 5000/night with all taxes which is good value

Room Tip: River view rooms are nice and quiet

Stayed in the hotel for one night in one of the newly renovated modern rooms. Clean and comfortable . The lady at the checkin was very helpful in accommodating all our requests. Room was facing the river which had an amazing view. The coffee shop had a very good spread. Surat is an amazing place to try out the local foods especially in January when you are able to try all the local favourites. All in all a very good trip and look forward to visiting again.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor with river view.

We stayed at the Gateway Hotel in Surat for two nights. It was an unforgettable experience. Everything from check inn (which was quick and efficient) right through to check out was an absolute pleasure. The food was excellent (we dined at the buffet restaurant and obviously had breakfast at the hotel) and the staff went beyond the call of duty to make sure that our stay was an enjoyable one.

Room Tip: This is one of the few hotels that we have stayed at that have a comfortable sleeper couch for the k...
