“Pretty Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The property is small by Taj standards. The hotel itself is old, and evidently so, but manages to maintain an air of charm.
Not too many fancy amenities, but there is a nice, inviting pool in the middle of the hotel and a lush green lawn all around.
The food was decent, tried Indian stuff for dinner, and it was appropriately spiced and close to delicious. However, the breakfast buffet spread can do with a makeover, it falls short of 5 star standards.
The waiters are slightly less than sharp or polished, but definitely warm and pleasant. Cannot be faulted for lack of effort.
Its cheaper than the Gateways in larger cities, but barely so. Again barely value for money.

Our five day stay at the hotel was worth appreciation.....we-five familiez from Jammu had a excellent stay at the hotel .The entire staff is hospitable and friendly...we would like to mention the name of supervisor- Arpan who really made us feel like home. A person who always has a friendly disposition and a smile on face. The buffet manager is also very welcoming. Hats off to the chefs,waiters,housekeeping.....all in all a very wonderful experience and a wholesome stay!!!!!

On the 26th, landed at the Airport and went straight to The Gateway Ummed, Ahmedabad for Breakfast. The Menu was selective and the place though not spacious it had a well organised seating. Staff were attentive and really did their best to make us comfortable. The Buffet spread was really attractive and had a good mix of the Menu from Local, South Indian and Continental. With a view of the swimming pool and birds dancing around in the morning was a scene to enjoy while having the breakfast.

Good Place.

Mr. Arpan is indeed a very cooperative person. All the rest in the restaurant and the reception were also quite cordial. Unfortunately I don't know their names. The GAD restaurant is quite lively, so is your pool area. A fantastic property.The Tatas really have high standards of ethics. God bless you all !!!

I opted to stay here coz of a much delayed Jet flight. The check-in was smooth. The best attraction naturally is its location bang opposite Ahmedabad airport.

The rooms seem a little dated. This Gateway property may need a make over.

I checked out the buffet at GAD or the coffee shop. It seemed ordinary. Mostly veg dishes and the desserts seemed sad. So I headed to their Indian Cuisine restaurant where a live Ghazal performance was on. The chicken biryani was heavenly. I strongly recommend it.

The hotel dropped me to airport early morning which is a good service.

Its a good option if you need to catch an early or late flight.

On my third visit, all I can say is that service standards are being maintained consistently at a poor level! Fruits take ages to arrive in the room, tea takes forever to be served. They only wake up when you complain!
On the rooms, the pressure of water is inconsistent and there is no hand held shower - bathrooms definitely need refurbishment..
The main USP of this hotel is nearness to airport (5 min by car) and to the business district, Gandhinagar. But it is quite far from the city centre and if that is where you need to spend time, then staying here doesnt make much sense. Overall however it is a good business hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the elevators if you dont want to walk much. Pool facing rooms are very far...
