“Cramped rooms designated as standard !!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Though the Sarovar Group has added their professional touch to this old property, however the rooms which they call as standard are miserably small and cramped. You can`t even sit with a single guest comfortably in your room.
The other rooms in the hotel are ok and somewhat spacious. If you express your displeasure with the manager or the front office about the room size they may upgrade you to a better room, that happened with me twice. For the 1st time traveller not knowing this fact may land up to cramped and uncomfortable stay.
Breakfast spread and in room dininig is very good and has a great value for money.
The staff and the manager are cooperative and always helps with a smile................a great plus for a otherwise average propert.

I have stayed here many times on business visits to Ahmedabad. It's a very comfortable hotel with good breakfast spread. It is not too far from the Airport & is almost city center.
Deluxe rooms are very good to stay in.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are much better if you can get the river view.

I visited the hotel on my personal trip to Ahmedabad during Mid August. Hotel Staff is very polite & prompt in services. Especially the Restaurant staff & the Reception staff, I was offered in fact upgraded to a new room on 6th Floor with wonderful River View. The mornings & evening view were fab!!!
After a tired day evenings are the best to enjoy here if provided River Facing Rooms. :)
Food is fantastic, specially the Barbeque. But need some improvement in Breakfast.
In short, A worth staying place and value for money hotel. Good. Keep it up…

Room Tip: The room facing River are Best. Is called Deluxe Rooms.

Conveniently near the airport in the heart of Ahmedabad, Sarovar Portico Ahmedabad is close to Manek Chowk, Sanskar Kendra Museum, and Jama Masjid Mosque. Also nearby are Swaminarayan Temple and Sardar Patel Stadium.This Ahmedabad hotel offers a restaurant and a coffee shop/café. Guests are served a complimentary breakfast. Public areas are equipped with wireless and wired high-speed Internet access. This 3-star hotel features business amenities including a business center, small meeting rooms, and limo/town car service. The staff can arrange tour/ticket assistance, wedding services, and event catering. Additional amenities include spa services, a fitness facility, and a concierge desk. Valet parking is complimentary. I had only 1 day to spare to stay at this hotel but sutely one should have a stay to experience the old city of ahmedabad.

Room Tip: Choose a sabarmati river facing room to have the most pleasent experience.

I have been staying at the same property every time I visit Ahmedabad on business purpose and have coaxed my company finally to look for somewhere else for accommodation. Food was good, breakfast spread is nice too. Rooms are too small for the price being paid and frankly the location is a bit let off too..The front desk staff needs training in attending to customers, politeness and patience. Every single one of them in the front office is walking with his/her head in the cloud, not to mention the excellent spoken english talent they displayed wherein I was left in splits...

Overall average stay...try looking for a better place, this should be your last resort after all hotels have been booked.

it was a bit of a let down. the place looked decent and very clean, but the rooms were a bit small. for the price i paid about 3k, it was not worth it. the cleaniless was no issue, everything worked but food was a bit expensive and the internet could be better speed. overall not value for money. also the sleep quality was not great because of outside noises....
