Hotel Express Towers
Ranked #28 of 70 Hotels in Vadodara
Reviewed April 29, 2011

We stayed in this hotel mainly because there was no other hotels available and I definitely dont think its value for money. There is a stink of sewage in the lobby, the bed sheets and towels are stained - definitely not a pleasant experience and not expected of a 3 star- 4 star hotel that it claims to be. The food is edible definitely but nothing to write home about. Staff is polite and helpful but there are limits to how they can help. Business travel wise this hotel would be perfect due to its location but when you get back at 12 in the night after work you dont want to go up to your room and see that the door is locked and then wait for the staff to come and unlock it for you - everyday! Maybe being a little nit-picky but my main issue with the hotel was that its definitely not worth its price. Buffet breakfast - give it a miss. On the positive side - staff did readily provide slippers when asked and bed is really comfortable.

The Express hotel at Alkapuri, Baroda is a very well located , close to the railways station and in the centre of a shopping district. The hotel has been around for very long and was recently renovated . The rooms are well appointed and have a view of the R.C Dutt road. The fact that the Hotel has no competition has resulted in the staff being lackadsial and rude to non frequent travellers ... Inspite of the badly trained staff , most travellers stick to the hotel due to the lack of good value options in the baroda..

This visit I after scanning 4-5 hotels physically & rejecting them I did reach Express Towers with my local contact & was lucky as only one room was available.
I decided immedieatly to block it . It has a good environment with good room service which is prompt. The quality of Buffet breakfast is poor though & needs to be looked into.

The hotel has few good marketing areas near by & a lot of choices to buy things.

Express hotel is well located in the central part of vadodara on R.C. Dutt road. The hotel is well located for business travellers. Not so far from the airport (apx. 30 min. drive) and railway station (approx. 10 min. drive). Hotel offers good rooms, clean environs and good restaurant. Taxis are available on beck and call. There are also conference rooms to hold seminars, conferences etc. Tariffs are not so expensive, if you are travelling on your corporate account and have a good deal worked out. If you are a frequent visitor it is worth doing. They also offer special day use tariffs if you are a frequent visitor and require a room for a few hours to have a quick shower, a nap and then a good lunch.

In short, this is the ideal hotel for business travellers.
