The Ummed Ahmedabad
Ranked #12 of 163 Hotels in Ahmedabad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2009

The Taj Ummed is about 5-10 minutes from the airport; an important criteria for us while chosing the hotel for the city. It is an average building from outside , not as grand inside compared to most Taj properties. The lobby is nice and check-in was smooth.

The room: I thought this was a tad small. Even a bit cramped if I may say so. They have smartly done it up with chic linena nd contrasting red assessories and good wood. But the TV was ancient. Not expected and no wonder hidden inside a cabinet. The bathroom was squeaky clean with nice toileteries , the tub a bit broken.

The service: The room service, check in facilities were great. I used the internet center a number of times; the staff was at all times most efficient and helpful.

The food: there are two restraunts, narmada and cafe j. I ahd breakfast, lunch and snacks at cafe J. the food is nice. though the service is painstaingly slow. It seemed a 2 man show. In netween taking our order, the waiter also picked a phone call, served someone ketchup and presented another table with menus. The time taken to place the order was almost as much as 15 minutes. This was for for lunch and snacks. for breakfast we just gave up and served ourseleves.

The hotel now calls itself the gateway, still a taj property but another line i suppose. This might be a transitionary phase and hence confusion.

Would I stay here again: Yes ,if being close to the airport was very imporatnt. If not I would look for something closer to the city center, near all the shops, food joints and life.

This property is located close to the Airport and away from the traffic, peaceful enough to unwind after your business day.
Food Quality & Taste is very good and affordable. Meal for two can cost 1200.

Fitness centre here is a disappointment. Most machines are either outdated are non-functional. Don't expect to see Stream, Jacuzzi or Sauna in this hotel yet.

Using the Shower can be quite a challenge. By the time you control the temperature, you are half wet and extremely confused.

I reached Ahmedabad around 8:30pm. the hotel is close to the airport & by the time I reached I was very tired. we had a meeting next day. but as we entered the hotel the staff warmth & smile greeted us. the check in hardly took 5mins & we were in our rooms.
This was my second visit to Taj. As usual the interiors are very well done.The room was very cosy & clean. i felt relaxed. then i went ot the restaurent which had good assortment of salads & vegetables.
i enjoyed the dinner very much.

the night seemed very short in the cozy bed of the hotel.
Overall I would say this is probably the best hotel in Ahmedabad i have ever stayed in.

This is a good place to stay if your are visiting Ahmedabad. One of the main advantages is that it is very close to the airport. The big disadvantage is that it is quite a way into the city. There are no taxis is Ahmedabad, so you have either to take a three-wheeler or a hotel car. The latter is clearly more comfortable, but more expensive. However the hotel drivers are very competent and look after you very well. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is fine if you go for the India selection, but not so good for more Western-type dishes

Taj Residency Ummed is our best bet for the most convenient and productive official meetings with foreign/international teams and visiting delegations.
An excellent location close to the airport with a situation between the state capital and the city of Ahmedabad (which has most of the state level stakehoders working with the GSACS),Taj Residency Ummed is the obvious choice for all such meets.
The visit of the Joint Implementation Review Mission(JIRM) necessitated one such occasion last December when we utilized the services of Taj Residency Ummed for the best possible facilities for the occasion.The delegation of the Members of Parliaments last year and some deliberations on 19th of this month(June,09) again make it our first choice for accommodation and other facilities.
A city which cannot boast for the best of hotels,Taj Residency Ummed fulfills most of our requirements of good accommodation,professional services with value addition because of the excellent location.
