“An oasis of calm in a hot dusty city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of our trip and 1 night at the end. We had a room on the 2nd floor at the beginning, which was large, airy, bright and very comfortable. The service was great, very friendly. Our only disappointment was the food - the House of MG rooftop restaurant allegedly has the finest vegetarian fare in Ahmedabad, but we thought the veg thali quite poor. However, this is a top grade hotel and far surpasses other hotels in Gujarat.

On our return, we were upgraded to rooms 3 and 4 - blissful! These are great rooms, much larger and room 4 has a separate sitting area where you can watch the world go by outside from your cool swing seat. Again, beautiful furnishings and the most fabulous pure white best quality cotton sheets - what a luxury after 2 weeks trailing round Gujarat. The best night's sleep ever in India.

This really is a special hotel; it has historical significance and the walls are lined with original photos of the family. It would have been given a higher rating, but the pool was under renovation and the food was not great, but I would choose the House of MG every time over the modern chain hotels.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor (1 to 4) are larger and better appointed than the upper floors - and th...

The House of MG is a lovely space, well located to the Old City and attractions. Our room was huge, with a considerable bathroom and large separate living area with a swing seat and comfortable chairs.

There is a pool, which looks as if it'd be lovely with beautiful tiling, but it was under renovation when we were there so we were unable to enjoy it. The 'gym' has a single treadmill. Next door is an associated restaurant which has acceptable food.

Upstairs is a wonderful restaurant, the 'Agashiye (which, appropriately, means on the terrace)', where you can have an authentic Gujarati meal on the rooftop, with good views, excellent service and delicious Gujarati food, which is eaten with your hands (not cutlery).

Only stayed 1 night, but a fantastic place to stay. The room was very large and we had a fantastic verandah where you could sit and relax in the swing seat. staff good and again free wifi. We ate in the upstairs restaurant where they only serve thali. It was an exellent meal but served in a different way to others we have had. I think the staff should ask you if you would like it explaing as you enter, we were given a leaflet to how it worked but not untill later.

Hotel in central location, the front rooms are very noisy. Spacious rooms with furniture well kept. Bathroom spacious and clean, shower with lukewarm water only. The restaurant in the courtyard is fast and simple but the dishes are very spicy. Western breakfast is essential, improvable. Good organization of the reception.
