“Excellent experience”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I have stayed at this Taj property several times over the last year or so. The service is excellent, staff is courteous and the restaurant staff go out of their way to accommodate your requests. I wish they add one or two more restaurants since they currently only have a coffee shop and an Asian restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony so that you can step out if you like, especially if you are a smoker l...

The room was spacious and okeydokey.As usual,internet cost a bomb.
The food was serviceable but not ooh-la-la.The range of dishes was limited.
There were many executives on standby.Almost like a posse.Pray,why?
The coconut chutney had turned rancid and there was prompt corrective action and apologies.Fine professional touch.
The Gateway at Surat is an outstanding hotel.How I wish it rubbed off on thier Baroda property!

This is the best accommodation in Vadodra. The city is small, and therefore the hotel comes as a bit of an unexpected surprise.
The rooms are very good- large, bright and airy. The airconditioning is comfortably set, and can be adjusted to personal requirements. Ask for a room with a balcony. They have a few of those rooms, and the outdoors are a delight in the evenings, specially in the monsoons or winter season.There is tea and coffee service in the better quality of rooms.
The hotel has a swimming pool, a health club,an adequate gym and a steam room (which wasn't working when I visited).The two reataurants include a coffee shop which serves breakfast, and buffet lunch & dinner, although ala carte food may also be ordered. The room service is satisfactorily prompt.The other restaurant, Kai Asia, is a specialty restaurant, serving Chinese, Thai & Japanese food. It is definitely worth a visit.
The staff is helpful and tries its best to please.
Only thing missing was the beer. Gujarat is a 'dry' state. And you cannot buy liquor - at least not legally. The hotels also do not serve liquor. One misses a cold glass of beer on a hot Indian evening.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

Typical boutique hotel, it has his charming style, rooms and hall.
Personnel extremely kind, common in India if you tip them.
Rooms are big and confortable. Air conditioning is less smelly than other hotels.
Very good cleaning, especially for Indian standards
Pleasant restaurant even if some spices are missing "sweeter" to foreign style.
Caution to the price, it could be high the "street" one, with some offer or discount you can get good deals for approx 70€/night.

Don't know much to do in Baroda, but this place makes me feel comfortable with the warmth from the staff & the rooms. Being a vegetarian city, the meat that I ate at their coffee shop was SUPER, unfortunately didn't get the chance of trying their specialty restaurant but our stay there was very comfortable. The price is a bit high for a city like that but since it's well located & probably the only place that makes me feel comfortable, one doesn't mind spending that money. For me practically the only place that i would want to stay at when in Baroda.

I have lodged at the Gateway Hotel several times. It is perfect for business travel with quick and efficient service and facilities. Also, it can be a good stay for a short personal visit. The rooms are large and bright and room service is brilliant. The food spread is excellent and has splendid variety - to make sure everyone can get their pick at the breakfast. I must also add a note on a rather friendly and warm staff!

Have been staying and visiting this property for more than 10 years now and though the management has changed (twice) the hotel has always had a warm and lovely welcome for every guest.

I really liked the property, neat , clean, efficient service, great food - the south east asian restaurant was very good, the gym nice and relaxing , banquets well managed and catered - just everything was perfect.

The rooms are nice, large and well appointed. Everything is attended with care and a passion for hospitality.

I sincerely doubt if anyone will not have good time in this property. The interiors are very well done and some very nice art hangs on the walls of the hotel.

Room Tip: all rooms are nice, but ask for rooms on the 2nd floor plus and the one's that look onto the ent...
