“Great Place to be in for Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

I travelled to Ahmedabad earlier this month with my colleague for a business trip to attend a conference held at another hotel in the city. But my stay was at The Grand Bhagwati. The size of the rooms can be a dissapointment but the major highlight of the Hotel is the FOOD. Though the hotel serves only Vegetarian food, but the taste is awesome. I would suggest all the food lovers travelling to ahmedabad to visit this hotel for its food.
Overall Great experience

This is new property and it was indeed a pleasant surprise of this Hotel being a great one.
The rooms were of fairly good size and neat and clean.
Food, though not, a buffet was good, above all the service of the staff was excellent.
Thank you Mr. Kalpesh Parmar and Mr. Pratik Mehta and their staff was very well trained and gave great Hospitality Service.
The Transport to the Hotel was on time and the driver was very polite and helpful.
The only draw back that I felt was location of the Hotel was not very conducive but we did not care as the service superseded the location. Please keep it up TGB Nadiad. And Thank you Manager and staff.

Room Tip: Ask them to give the room on the Front side away from the railway track.

I checked in to this hotel by chance as my first choice hotel wasn't available. But I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. As you enter the hotel, you can't avoid getting struck by the grandness. It is an awesomely designed hotel which gives you big rooms and bigger open areas to soak the sunlight. Only vegetarian food is available, but taste was good. The staff was very helpful and accommodating.

Good value for money.

Ahmedabad was the last destination in my trip schedule, and i had pre booked the room in TGB online. TIP: book online and get better room rates.. on spot rate is quite high!

firstly, the GOOD part of the stay, which will be eventually followed by the disgusting experience i had with the front desk personnel..

Good Part : * luxuriously comfortable bed and pillows... International standard bathroom (although the towels looked as if they belonged to another century altogether :P ) .. superb room service and house keeping staff..!!

MUST TRY : The masala chai.. dal khichdi.. dosa...

The lift features a list of floors and the different banquet rooms located on them.. TGB updates this list everyday with the current parties of the day hosted by Mr. and MRS xyz in Xyz banquet.
This makes a visitor's search quite easy.. COMMENDABLE JOB!! :)

Now, the BAD part !!
the first look of the hotel leaves u little disappointed since u have already been enamoured by the perfect picture posted on its website..the reality aint that glamourous... thank god it has lift which connects to the lobby.. senior people with leg problems couldnt have climbed those
steely steps..

I had written a request of 6 AM check in since my train was scheduled to reach by 4:30. Weary, tired and sleepy, we reached the hotel front desk at 5 am. The Receptionist was unfriendly and unwelcoming (to say the least).. he gave us a very cheeky answer when i asked him about breakfast being included in the tariff.. later, he insisted very badly on ID cards for both the occupants of the room.. i understand, its a procedure, but there HAS to be a decent tone of speech!
receptionist : The check in time is 11 am
Me: but, i specially mentioned on your website that i will be here at 6 am.
R: its 5 am now.
Me: (irritated beyond redemption now) : I shall sit in lobby for an hour if u like.

this was a trailer by the front desk staff.. to cut a long story short, i had requested for strepsils/cough syrup.. and he said, we are out of stock, the bell boy will be there.. u pay him money and get it yourself.(a big hotel not having basic halls/vicks is not acceptable)! next, i requested at 11 pm for check out at 4 pm.. make sure bill is ready since i had a flight to catch.. unfortunately, the receptionist again tried to be MAHA INTERESTING and made me wait for a solid half an hour despite pre-informing the front desk.

However, the silver lining was that the F and B manager and General manager were really attentive after reading the guest comment feedback and immediately called up to apologise for the bad experience.. they were courteous...humble and really assuring!!

I would recommend this hotel definitely !! the food is yummy and fortunately, no gujju touch of sweetness in the food!! :)
