Some classmates and I stayed at the Hotel Golden Plaza for 6 nights while in Ahmedabad for a service project. I was expecting a low quality hotel for the price (~$25/room/night), however, the beds were very comfortable, the rooms had air conditioning, there were no bugs, there was hot water coming out of the showers, the room service food was excellent and very prompt, and the hotel staff members were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were also very safe-- we left ipods/
computers/equipment locked in our rooms while we were out and had no problem at all. The location was also easy to describe, making it convenient to communicate to auto-rickshaw drivers about getting back to the hotel in the evenings.
Despite some language barriers, the hotel staff helped us whenever we needed it. For our project, they helped us find materials and negotiate with locals. During the annual Ahmedabad Kite-Flying Festival, many of the hotel staff members also taught us how to fly kites on the room when we were clearly having trouble. Whenever we needed anything, we felt comfortable asking the front desk for help.
My only complaint would be the toilet having issues flushing from time to time. Other than that, everything was awesome! If I'm ever back in Ahmedabad, I'll definitely be going back to Golden Plaza!
