Good hotel very clean & neat, I think it is relatively new. Stayed for 1 night in March 2014. Rooms are standard Novotel style, and hotel has all standard Novotel amenities. Breakfast spread is good and nice choices for Indian cuisine. One think I did not like about the restaurant staff was they did not let me and my family occupy any of the corner tables during breakfast on both the time I was there. I was always told the tables were reserved and was asked to sit on only a couple of tables in the centre. Although, no one ever sat on those tables even after the breakfast was finished, I wonder who they were reserved for? Also. they should extend breakfast till 11:00 AM especially on Sunday, 10:30 AM is a bit early and that too they start clearing by 10:20 AM itself.
Hotel is good but restaurant staff need to pick up.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing Highway and Higher floor

Very nice and new hotel. Room had a nice big window with a good view overlooking the highway. No traffic noise at all. Shower was excellent with both a normal shower head and a rain shower from the ceiling. A/C worked great - I was able to get the cool temperature I like. Bed was big and comfortable. Lighting was excellent. Room had a nice small table for eating or laptop work. Good breakfast buffet with omelettes, dosas, and caffe lattes made fresh plus many good selections.

The hotel is next to a Domino's Pizza and a Coffee Day shop. Just down the small road is a large cinema complex. Iscon MegaMart is a short walk but unfortunately you have to cross a very busy road to get there.

They have a nice pool. Normally, I wouldn't think of going to the pool in India, but this pool looked very clean and well maintained. They helped me find a car and driver for a weekend in Vadodara. It was also nice and much appreciated that they let me check out very late (3 pm) so that I could keep my luggage in my room until leaving for Vadodara.

The hotel had some rough edges: I asked for a map of the area with restaurant recommendations - they don't have one but offered that I could print Google Maps from the two Apple McIntosh machines in the lobby. The elevator wouldn't recognize my first room key. They quickly replaced the key. The extra side door lock didn't work - engineering quickly fixed it. The fitness room was not attended regularly (on the plus side, all the machines were available). One day all the fitness machines were turned off so I had to call the front desk to get them turned on. I got in the habit of bringing a water bottle to exercise because the fitness room did not stock them consistently - sometimes they were there but other times not. I paid for high-speed internet and it was good 5 out of 6 nights. On the last night and the following morning it was very slow and my movie kept stopping. I then measured it on speedtest.net at 0.25 M instead of the normal 5. My room was quiet 5 out of 6 nights, but the TV noise from the adjoining room disturbed me one night and the following morning.

Room Tip: I was very happy with my odd-numbered room on the ninth floor overlooking the road. It had a great...

I travel to Ahmedabad every 6 months for business meet and always stay at Grand bhagwati hotel which is close to Novotel. Being a frequent user of Novotel at Juhu beach in Mumbai, I booked a conference room at this hotel for a conference with our clients and got back much more than expected. The hotel is brand new with small, compact conference room with great ambiance. I unfortunately did not stay at this hotel as it was my last day when i came here but happened to see the bedrooms which come with an amazing view as compared to other hotels in the city. Already made my mind to stay with the novotel for all my furture visits Food:The quality and taste of all the food items in the menu were great. Special thanks to Manish for all his help during our conference. At a short notice he arranged for notice boards with my company name and a separate place for dining for my guests for dinner. With all the great service i would also like to get this in notice that charges for the use of projector is higher than i have ever seen in any hotel of this country. My overall experience was overwhelming and the last thing I said to a colleague of mine before leaving the hotel is " I'm coming back to Ahmedabad for this place ". With my great experience with this place, I my planning my next few events at Novotel Hotels in few more cities where they have presence. Highly Recommend for every business traveler!!!
