Reviewed August 23, 2013

As with evry other Taj property, you'd like to have great expectations from this hotel. And it lives up to it too. But being in a smaller city in vijaywada, its been cut short of royalty while still keeping every traveler-needs in mind. Seems more like a business hotel.
The room was minimalistic but spaciously furnished and the breakfast spread had just the right dishes...

Had a wonderful experience staying @ the Gateway Hotel in Vijayawada. The most convenient of all is situated bang on MG Road, hub of all activities, this road can be easily compared with MG Road in Bangalore. There is a big stretch of shopping area around the hotel, so be ware see that the ladies are blinded while entering the hotel. Also very near by to Besant Road, the commercial activity Hug @ Vijayawada.
The hotel staff are very courteous and pleasing and make you feel @ home. Room service had been good and food is near excellent - stick to the South Indian Menu, you would love the taste difference - True Andhra style.
The roof top swimming pool and the Gym areas are the highlights of the hotel with very scenic view and relaxing atmosphere, make sure you spend good time in these areas, once you have finished your tour around the city, you will find yourself ready for the next outing.
One small deterrent though, ensure there are no parties on the rooftop, if you choose to stay in the upper floors, the rooms are not very sound proof and you can make out the party activities round the night.

It was a great experience. The hospitality of the Taj hotels is unique. There is no rule other than guest satisfaction which makes it different,
During the first night dinner I did not like one sweet dish and left it after the first bite. The waiter was watching me and reported it to Chef who came immediately to enquire about the reason. On being inquired I told him that it is not the way I like it. I also told him about my similar reaction to another dish. He asked me about what taste I like in the these dishes. He explained to me that these dishes are liked by people in the manner it was cooked and assured to get it of my taste next day.
The next day these dishes were ready and tasted exactly what I was looking for. This customer orientation makes Taj different.

Stayed here with family for 1 night. The staff were very welcoming right from the front desk. We had taken the Executive Suite # 212. The restaurant staff were very accommodating in accepting our request for a 3.30 am breakfast for our pre-fasting meal. The Jr. Sous Chef, Sarafath Khan had personally come down to the room to take our order for our 3.30 am meal. The food is really nice. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

Although the property is bang on the main road sleep quality is excellent. Or maybe it was just a Sunday night but in any case I did have a very sound and comfortable sleep.

Not many English channels on TV though. Mostly Telugu channels and a few Hindi channels.

Room Tip: I have stayed here twice and both times took the Executive Suite #212. Its a corner suite so its ve...

A decent premises for a hop over with family. The hotel is more favourable for business trips. Food arrangements were excellent. The front office managers were excellent and the reception was fantastic. It just took 5 mins to complete the check in formalities and my family was guided to the Superior Room by the hotel executive and every facility in the room and also about the Hotel was explained to us. The swimming pool on the 7th floor is the highlight of the hotel as the view from the seventh floor of the City is fantastic and scenic. The entire array of experience in the the hotel was truely a "waah taj" experience.

Our first stay in Vijayawada. Friendly staff, cleanliness, amenities and location were all tops. Breakfast was great and they even had Vegemite for all of us!! The staff couldn't have been more helpful, always smiling and asking if they can do anything for us! Thank you to everyone at the hotel for making us so welcome!. I believe nothing less than a 5 star hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times and have stayed here for weeks.

I can say eyes closed that this is the Best hotel available in Vijayawada. Have stayed at Fortune and D V manor but none of them are even comparable to The gateway hotel.

The staff is really courteous and takes personal care of their clientele. Their food is good and their liquor and snacks package once in a while amazes you with the cheap rates.

The rooms are amazingly good and the roof top pool is another added attraction.
Its a must stay hotel if you are in vijayawada.
