“Worked for us”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at the end of a 3-week trip. It is what is it: a corporate hotel aimed mainly at the business community. Having said that everything worked well: check-in was good, room was clean and comfortable, staff were friendly, food was good both in the lobby restaurant (the GAD) and in the Kai Asia pan-asian, which had a nice atmosphere and was obvioulsy a place where locals eat. They organised cars for us when we wanted them. Downsides? It's in a bit of a remote location, away from the city centre, so you need transport if you want to eat anywhere else. The pool is tucked away round the back and was closed on our second day there.

This property is situated in a very quiet area and is close to Alkapuri as well. Mr Chirag ( Manager) was very helpful and co operative and also guided us on Vadodara City. I do recommend this property for anyone visiting the city, although at times it may be sold out as it is very popular among the business travelers.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the road. they offer good view.

VADODRA The Gateway Hotel

There are Gateways and there are Gateways. The Taj groups branding of a group of its properties as superior business hotels does not necessarily mean that all Gateways are equal. The Gateway in Vadodra is, in our opinion, a middle of the road Gateway.

The Gateway Hotel, Vadodra, is in a rather unattractive area. The lobby and restaurants are not as spacious as many Gateways. The reception staff are friendly and pleasant.

When we stayed in this hotel a few years ago we had a long and rather dark room. This time our room seemed much lighter and brighter and it had a pleasant balcony where it was possible to sit out. The problem is the number of pigeons that roost above the balcony, creating a real health problem every day. The balcony is cleaned every morning but is pretty disgusting by evening with bird droppings.

The building does not seem to have been as effectively soundproofed as most Gateways, and there was faint noise from the rooms around us during our night. But it wasn’t a major problem.

We stayed in a superior category room that was very comfortable, with a desk, two padded chairs and an arm-chair, and plenty of storage. The usual Taj wi-fi worked well enough though the signal was poor in the early morning. Unusually for an Indian hotel, there were plugs for the wash hand-basin and the bath.

In general we’d say it is a safe, clean option but, for tourists, not a property that is a destination in itself.

Room Tip: Perhaps see the rooms first. There was a considerable difference in the quality of the rooms on the...

I have been in this hotel for a business trip. Overall is OK, just a bit noisy due to street exposure and structure is a bit old and worn.
They have a Thai-Chinese-Japanese restaurant which I did not try as well as an Indian buffet style restaurant where dinner was OK
Swimmingpool is on the shade of the building and seemed not to be much used
Staff very friendly and supportive; they also organized taxi service from and to airport and daily car to go to work

Room Tip: Rooms are all on the street side and a bit noisy

Stayed here overnight on our way back from Kutch to Mumbai. The booking was smooth and fast considering that I had done the booking just an hour prior to my arrival. The rooms were a welcome sight for both of us as we were tired by our long road journey. The rooms were clean and nice but what shone out throughout was the service.A special thanks to the restaurant staff who on realizing that I was very ill and not in a position to eat the regular hotel fare prepared a special meal for me just the way i wanted it to be. Highly recomended for the service and the food
