“Great Food, not so great rooms!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We travelled all over Gujarat and were unanimous that we had the best food at Surya Palace. The service too was exceptional,we held a banquet party and the coordination and helpfulness of the staff was deeply appreciated.

The hotel was kind enough to upgrade us to their suite accommodation. However, I have to say that the rooms are not up to the mark and the pictures on the brochures etc..are quite deceptive.

Overall a reasonable stay at Vadodara.

I have been staying at Hotel Surya Palace for over 2-3 years now. They are by far the best business hotel with the facilities and the service that they provide.
I have tried many other options in Baroda, but none of them match Surya Palace. The location is very good as it is close to Airport, Railway Station. Eateries being closeby you can have a good time roaming around.
The Best suited for business trips, where after a long day, good sound sleep is what is needed and Surya Palace provides it aptly.
Rooms, Breakfast and Buffet are also very good.

Location is near railway station. Overall hotel is good including service, cleanliness and food.
The bathroom accessories are good. The shower control and spout are really good. I was quite happy with the breakfast variety and quality. The toaster is quite fast.
Only one drawback I noticed prominently during the short stay. There are mosquitoes in the reception lobby right up to the room itself.

I stayed for 2 night for my business trip in Baroda on 7th floor....

Room is with all basic facilities but small in compare to others.

Staff is responsive and polite, ready to help guest.

Breakfast is good and with variety.

currently hotel is under maintenance and you may hear some noise of drilling etc but can be stopped with one complain!

They do charge 10% service charge over and above taxes and room rate!

Stayed for three nights. Nothing negative comes to mind. Very decent hotel in heart of Vadodra, very near the Railway station and medical college. Rooms are clean, house keeping is efficient and staff very courteous. Added plus, there is a liquor shop in hotel and they arrange for permit instantly. May be it is norm in dry Gujrat, it was my first experience to get 'permit' to consume alcohol.

Surya palace hotel has lot of aminities and has its own mark in varodra city. It has a Gymmnasium and Massage along with Spa facility. Spa facility is available as free of cost. Rooms are decent and well managed. It is located near residential area so you do not have large recreational activities to do. Food in hotel is decent and hospitality is remarkable

They also have number of hals to help you plan parties and trainings

Near hotel you have a place where you can go and enjoy local street food and lot of public can be seen enjoying there
