    I'd like to see a bit more of a variety on the breakfast menu. The staples (Idli etc.) are fine - but Parsley potatoes and tossed vegetables everyday is a bit too much. Getting served the same breakfast every day is not my idea of a good way to start the day.

    The highlight of this property is the staff. Friendly faces right from the entrance to the people taking care of your room. Warm smiles, excellent provisions and proper care taken of the guests is the highlight of this establishment. In other hotels that I have been to, the staff can be downright intrusive - not at the Gateway though. A simple gesture, eagerness to assist is what epitomizes the people here. The entire reason for my good review has got to be the people that make up this wonderful hotel. Another thing has got to be the food. I managed to savour breakfast, lunch and inroom dining at their restaurant and every time it exceeded my expectations. Warm, hearty and delicious. The gateway is now my goto choice when coming to Baroda. None of the other establishments even come close.

    Not much.

    The staff was simply perfect, courteous and extremely efficient. We ate at the Kai Asia in house restaurant, and would you believe it they had a Teppanyaki menu! Indeed a very pleasant surprise in Vadodara. The location was easy to find and conveniently located close to the city centre & the railway station.

    The swimming pool could have more privacy..it was behind a parking lot..only a screen partly blocked the view of the pool from the parking area

    The front desk staff ( particularly Mr. Varij ) were very helpful .. The chefs at both the restaurants made a special effort to prepare special meals , considering my wife's allergies to spices,herbs etc

    Exorbitantly expensive compare to same class of hotel. Hyatt Regency is far better, excellent and reasonable in cities like Ahmedabad. Breakfast is reasonably acceptable. South Indian cuisines are absolutely unauthentic. Bathrooms are small. Beds are most uncomfortable and overused. Not worth the price.

    It's a peaceful location. Attentive and courteous staff. Comfortable size of rooms and nice recliner chair in room.

    To use WiFi for anything meaningful, you need to upgrade and pay. I hate that Taj hotels do that. If you advertise free WiFi, it should be something that can actually be used. This is nickel dime stuff.

    After a couple of weeks in rural Gujarat, it was wonderful to have a real. Ed, decent shower, etc.

    Gateway Akota is a well-staffed and friendly hotel with good facilities. the food is excellent and the service is outstanding and the best I have experienced anywhere in the world. they will iron a shirt for you in minutes and organise cars quickly and efficiently. you would generally only travel to Vadodara on business or for a wedding and I would recommend this for both.
