“Comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We stayed one night in this hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom clean and modern. The in-room dining was very good. Service was good. Only one negative thing: the bed had wheels and hence moved around continuously. I understand the wheels are good in hotels so that beds can be displaced easily, but for sleeping it would be good to put the "brakes" on!!

This hotel, located on one of the main thoroughfares of Vijayawada, struggles to do justice to the Taj brand.

Rooms are extra spacious. Room furniture is pleasant. Bed is very comfortable. Room will get 9/10.

In every thing else, the hotel huffs and puffs, manages to just about barely deliver.

The front office betrays a lack of training. Staff seem a little dazed and not entirely familiar with processes.

The out door restaurant that does Barbecue and grilled for dinner, is a disaster in all except the food. The food is excellent.

The seating is very uncomfortable and befitting a run off the mill food court. The ambience is non existent. Music comes from blaring horns and cacophony of traffic on the abutting thoroughfare. Lighting is barely utilitarian.

The staff know very little about the spread, to the extent of even confusing vegetarian and non vegetarian. ..

There is more focus on getting the billing right and making the guest pay, than ensuring delivery of value to the guest.

Breakfast spread was delicious. Again the experience was marred by overzealous emphasis on billing which is treated in a far from subtle manner.

Overall a big compromise of the Taj brand standard. Training requires over haul.

Also atrium lobby, being next to impossible to effectively temperature control, makes it a nightmare even in early summer.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

Gateway Hotel has a team of extremely service oriented staff. They have an excellent balance of being personable and service delivery. They are passionate about their job and always want to make their guest feel at home.
Food is cooked and served with love.
The F&B service crew at GAD such as Christopher, Eunice, Shankar,Vivek etc are an absolute delight to be with.
Do enjoy your meals there!

I stayed at another 5 star hotel later on and it cannot compare to Gateway's heart to make your stay in India a beautiful experience.

I have stayed at The Gateway twice now and find it the best in vijayawada. Located at a convenient spot on the MG Road and with ever good hospitality of Taj, its the best hotel in vijayawada. Restaurant with its delicacies are very good.

Compared to other good hotels DV MAnor and Fortune Murali Park its a very new Hotel and have an advantage because of that too
