The Gateway Hotel Akota

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed for my third or fourth time at Gateway Vadodara. My room was tidy, spacious and with a very comfortable bed. Buffet breakfast is really complete with vegetarian and non vegetarian indian food and with western food; the evening restaurant is also very good . The hotel personnel really felt me home: extreme kindness and availability. Car service from and to airport are available too.

A fine modern hotel with a great breakfast offering and friendly staff. The room was large and clean. Even better, the hotel gift shop had amazing hand carvings. Fairly large selection of veg and non-veg dishes.

We had Residential Conference at the hotel. Wonderful stay with best conference facilities. Rooms have excellent comfort facilities with professional staff service. The entire event went very well. All of us were over whelmed. Thanks to Prashant, Hemant and Anupama for great cordination during the booking. Pradeep, Shankar, Shubham, Satish and Lalit from Restaurant and Banquets. Anant and Mayank from Front office and Pranav from Finance. Thank you all. Hope to see you all soon

By far the best hotel in Baroda. I stayed in a quiet suite on an upper floor with a comfortable bed and a nice, clean bathroom. The staff was excellent at check-in and at my very early morning check-out. They were also helpful in getting some boarding passes printed that I had forgotten to take with me. The restaurant offers a selection of western and Indian dishes and the staff were always a pleasure to see first thing in the morning. If your travels take you to Vadodara, I certainly recommend the Gateway.

Peaceful, professional and clean. Upper end stay. Parking free. In heart of the mid town rich area. Little pricey in comparison to mid size city but, it deserves the price. Well trained staff and employees

It is the best top class hotel in Vadodara . It is the luxurious hotel available in Vadodara city. Rooms are just fabulous and fantastically decor as for luxurious feel . The service and staffs where to good in there work. Best for official meetings as it has a Hall to for different different events

In Vadodara, i think this is one of the best.Near to small buzzing market.Cordial staff.If you choose a room with Balcony, that is the best to have.In room dining is of high quality.You get customised foods.In room furniture/ amenities/ ambience needs to be re looked by Taj.

It is quite a grand establishment. Although I was more of a fan back when it was still the TAJ, let's face it, it's all got to change someday. the first time I was here, it was back in 2006 and the Indian team was in town for a match against the WI. Having Sreesanth listening to ghazals next to our table was a delight back then. The opulence has risen since those days but the standards have simultaneously fallen. Don't get me wrong, it is still a beautiful experience. But it just does not have the same charm anymore.

Great job. Glad the hotel had refurbished. I'd rate this hotel the #1 now at Vadodara standards. Food now at Kai has improved greatly. It's either they have a new chef or their old chef has regenerated himself to the Asian taste. Unlike before every food you'll taste the Indian flavor in the Asian cuisine. Nice improvement. Great stay.

We stayed for 3 days. The property, ambience, food is great. The greatest wow factor was the staff and their service. Every single staff person we interacted in the hotel was at his/her best. Their great attitude reflects everytime you interact with them. You just state your problem/what you want and it becomes their own problem and they do the best to solve them. It was an experience to behold. Stayed at many Taj properties and this one is definitely one of the best
