Stayed there for 4 nights in December 2013. We were a group of 4 people and took two rooms at the hotel.
+ clean rooms and toilets
+ friendly staff
+ reasonably friendly management which is willing to listen to legitimate requests
+ located in a busy area so transportation can be found very easily right outside the hotel any time of the day or night. Ahmedabad is not a very large city so even though the hotel isn't located in the trendiest location (it is safe enough though), most places in the city can be reached within half an hour.
+ given most places in Ahmedabad shut at 11pm (including restaurants), the hotel's proximity to two 24 hour cafes (in Hotel West End and in Hotel Four Points) is a positive. Both are within 5 minutes walking distance of Skylon.
+ Even though room charge isn't the cheapest, room service is quite reasonably priced.
- they make claims on tripadvisor which are plain false - about swimming pool, fitness centre, business centre. None of these exist. There is no restaurant in the hotel.
- the high speed internet is a joke. there is wifi which is barely usable for checking emails. You are just better off using 3G on your phone. Don't rely on getting work done at this hotel with their slow and overloaded internet connection
- They lack a restaurant but deliver meals to the rooms, supposedly 24*7. Service is not quick but not bothersomely slow
- The housekeeping staff was overextended, often taking more than an hour to turn up after they had been called
- like in many many places in Gujarat, meals are only vegetarian. Food is very average.
- in a shocking case of negligence, a blind member of our delegation was served dirty water when she asked for hot water in a thermos. the thermos hadn't been cleaned and some white stuff could clealy been seen floating in it!
