“heritage hotel with great food.”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Have been here to film for a tv show and also ended up having lunch at the excellent restaurant on the ground floor which serves gujarati thalis and lots more. The food is pretty healthy in the way its cooked and delicious.
The rooms have a lot of character. The hotel hosted Mahatma Gandhi during the 1920's.

Centally situated for a visit of the city , this ancient palace has been turned into a nice and cosy hotel. Large rooms with excellent bathrooms. The restaurant is also nice. A discovery was the inside pool in one of the nicely decorated places : an experience and a haven of rest.

This is a nice place to stay for an experience - very large rooms well done up, excellent food served in the specialty restaurant, and well mannered and welcoming staff. One of our drivers of the hotel's car - Praveen Chauhan - gave some excellent service. While the ambiance is nice and stay is relaxing (loved the swing in the room - a typical Gujarati tradition), the hotel needs to improve its noise proofing - the traffic noise is very disturbing and even the adjacent rooms voice can be heard. The pricing seems high, though, despite all the positive aspects.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road side to avoid external noises.

Did not stay, but had dinner and hosted Banquet or ~150 guests.
the ambience is exotic as are the interiors - especially at night, the place comes alive with lighting.
Check out their various Thali options, that are not only mouthwataring, but also served with elegance and LOVE (mostly missed at other locations). Amdavadi's love food and the Maharaj here knows what works best. Staff are friendly and more customer oriented - willing to go that extra mile to put a smile on the guests.
Their a-la-carte menu also dishes out good stuff, bit pricey though.
Parking is at a premium, but Valets are industrious and don't make guests wait longish periods.
MUST VISIT!

Room Tip: Traditional Gujarati Thali is best

A lovely old house yes but not a particularly relaxing or comfortable place to stay. The noise from the street pervades the whole hotel and there is no courtyard or similar to relax in. The staff on reception were neither particularly efficient or friendly.

The House of MG, a Heritage hotel may not be the best in town, but it is a large house full of character, offering luxury in a lovely Indian style. We stayed two nights. We were offered a suite with a very spacious sitting room decorated with family portraits. In our bedroom , we were intrigued by a large swing hanging from the ceiling and an overhead mirror over the bed. The bathroom was modern and well equipped. The information brochure is bulky and not informative enough about the facilities available. Cleanliness is average.
We had diner on the top floor at ‘Agashiye`, a thali restaurant. Food was good, but the experience disconcerting as we hardly knew or saw what we were eating, and we are weary of green chili...! We preferred the Greenhouse Cafe, in a verandah downstairs.
A bit noisy since it is in the centre of a chaotic intersection. Location is excellent for visiting the old town, as Siddi Saiyad Mosque is right across the street. The staff were pleasant but even at the reception they had difficulty speaking English. Airport is within easy reach with the hotel limo.
