    Though there were minor hiccups, the staff was always prompt to address them. There was a situation where some guest was smoking on the non smoking floor. On letting the staff know, they moved the guest to another floor.

    Only one variety of fish - Surmai - served for all three days I was there, no matter whether the dish was indian or continental. Considering the age of the Hotel and the wear and tear of the furniture and all other fittings, the rate is very high. The reasonable rate can be pegged at ₹5,500/- per day.

    Comfortable room. Effective air-conditioning. Friendly and capable staff. Food was very good.

    We had stayed in Visakhapatnam on our way down south at the Novotel which is just adjacent to the Gateway. We did not have a pleasant experience with them hence we decided to opt for the Gateway on our return trip back north. Having stayed at the Gateway in Kolkatta we was hoping for the best. We had a late check in as we were driving in from Chennai, it was probably after 10pm, It was nice to see that the room book was still reserved for us, and hence we had a quick check-in and their 24 hr dine in made it possible to have a quick bite, due to the lag in the journey we decided to stay another day here. Overall the experience of "Gateway" lived up to our expectations, the breakfast spread was good, food at Ming Garden was also sumptuous. No Noise the room which was definitely needed after our long drive. If any one if going to Visakhapatnam I would defiantly say to stay away from Novotel and choose The Gateway which is just a stone throw away if you want to enjoy your stay.

    Mosquitos in the room dot let you sleep peacefully

    Booking was breeze. Confirmed reservation. Easy to locate and nice location. Exceptionally courteous staff; but not willing to make amends. Hotel is strictly rule bound which is kinda ok. But no flexibility.
