5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

Small rooms but optimum space utilisation. Excellent for individuals visiting on work. They also have 2-3 cafeterias inside the hotel from where food can be delivered to your room. The bathrooms are neat and clean with lights in the shower. My room also had a small bunk bed on top of the double bed to accommodate the third person. Many good places around the hotel for eating and shopping. Overall a cute place to stay when in Ahmedabad. The food served by the hotel is not so good. There is no room service. Vending machines for wafers, biscuits, aerated drinks are installed in the hotel. Also tea & coffee vending machines are placed on each floor. the air-conditioning is excellent and the beds are very comfortable.

Rooms are small but good for business travellers.

Hotel is self service concept and does not have any room service.
Worst thing about Hotel is that they dont have restaurant.

Rooms are clean and tidy.

Staff @ hotel is friendly and reception staff is young.

Staff: MIT, VINAY, HARSH, BANSI, RAYUDU are efficient and good.

Stay is going good and we are permanet visitors of hotel.

Stayed for two days on my business trip on 29th Jan'14 Pricing is very attractive compared to same category hotel in that location. hotel is located in heart of the city.
Despite warned of its congested room by one of my colleague, I booked.

Its true --- rooms are so small. ( I booked executive class ). I am surprised to see a bunker bed above my bed. This made the room even more congested that once I hit on my head by something when getting up from bed. Seem this are for family purpose, but than should not allocate to business traveler. Hotel has tried to made all the things so hi-tech. All light are sensor basses , and sometime put off without any reason. No. wardrobe , no side table ..Besides rooms are so clean.
Other service are really good. Staff are co-operative.
Buffet breakfast is so so simple. At pick time it packed up that you have to sit with others.
They also offer a buffet dinner at a very reasonable rate, but I did not tried.

Should consider for one night only, where so much of thing not required to consider looking at the price tag.

Room Tip: Don't took rooms with bunker bed. if you are not travelling with child.

Rooms are very neat & clean. Location of the hotel is great, and has many eating out options nearby.

Well you will not find a pen, or notepad here. Rooms are super small, never seen before. One needs to see it, to believe that such small rooms can exist in a hotel. No dustbin in room, only one is in the toilet. Shower “compartment” is so small; you’ll hit your hand if you stretch even a bit. Toilets & bathroom’s feel & look are akin to that of a cabinet, or a vanity van.

Walk carefully in room, in view of very less space. Just to give an idea of the size of the room- figure this: the table, fitted in the corner of the room, can be accessed very well, without leaving the bed.

Front desk or the reception of the hotel, looks more like a cash counter of a restaurant. Chairs in the dining place, (which is bang opposite the front desk) are of plastic. Sit carefully as some have uneven stands & they may tilt.

Food at dinner buffet is good, but oily. Breakfast is good, could have more variety though.

Room service is pathetic, figure this: when ordering a glass of milk in room, it comes to you in a plastic glass covered with aluminium foil, served not on a tray, but in a polybag. It’s only when the attendant is made aware that this is not the way to serve, as the milk had already spilled in the polybag, he goes back & brings it properly, but forgets to get a stirrer or spoon for the sugar cubes now. I understand that the hotel doesn’t have a kitchen or maybe they procured milk from somewhere.. but this is certainly no way to serve it to the guests.

Rather than waiting for receptionists to answer your calls, after many attempts, it’s always better to reach out to them personally. They are too busy to answer your call.

TV in room has very limited channels. Lift doesn’t have a fan; you can smell what is being served for breakfast while being in lift.

Soaps & dental kits are available on request.

Finally the tag line of the hotel is “rest assured” & one of the USP as spelled out by them is “amazing sleep & shower experience”. But the only thing i.e. assured is a very nice sleeping experience.

I believe they thought disco lights fitted in shower would make it an amazing shower experience.

One bit of suggestion to the owners- for the amenities on offer the tariff is ok.. but you may increase the room tariffs a bit and ensure a good service too.

Rooms are really small ...feels like staying in a train compartment, kid bed is above the main bed , so kid enjoyed moving up and down the staircase.. extremely less space to walk .. A budget hotel with no manpower .. No room service....A single chipped card handles all the opening of doors and starting the lift.

Room Tip: rooms facing the city centre

Stayed in this hotel for 2 days. I had read the reviews that the rooms are tiny....but could not believe that they would be so bad as this is part of the accor brand. Unfortunately the rooms are extremely tiny. there is barely space to walk in the room. The wash rooms are tiny too. If you are large or with a family...this is a strict no..no. Single travellers may find it just OK. Mineral water is provided, 1 small bar of toilet soap is provided, bathroom has one shower with hot and cold water, and a soap dispenser which says "Soap and Shampoo" ( Its similar to soap dispensers at washrooms in Malls)., T. V is provided,No closet provided only an open hanger, dinner buffet @199 is really worth. They use key cards to open the doors and operate the elevator.Staff is just OK. Hospitality quotient is very low as this is a self service concept. I dont recomment it. Try to go to Platinum Inn its much bigger and better.
