I´m quite often travelling to India and a business trip brought me to Ahmedabad. Unfortunately the Taj Hotel Ummed is not up to the Taj Standards expected. I´ve paid 130€ a night for a hotel with a huge lack of service, a very nice - but also very smelly room. So I found the hotel completely overpriced. I´ve stayed in the Aloft Bangalore before coming to Ahmedabad and the service provided by the Taj was much worse.
The prices for the food were doubled, but when I went to the Gateway restaurant these guys ignored me for THIRTY minutes. After asking if can have the menu they told it would be better to take the buffet. I would not ask for the menu if I would go for the Buffet. Having the menu they did not show up for another 20 minutes so I went forward taking the buffet. Asking for the bill, again nobody showed up, but at least when I wanted to leave the speeded up.
By the same time the room service was working very well, but it was still quite expensive.
When I asked for the car they told me that only big cars are available. While I was still discussing my plans another indian family came and they got offered the small car. I will not complain, the big car was nice, but not necessary.
But the worst thing was that the room and the air condition smelled fungi and mold. During the weekend they had a (graduate?!) party going on, so they were closing the pool and on Sunday they made another party in front of my room which was going up until midnight. I felt they are more interested in the money from the parties than their hotel guests. I have to go to Ahmedabad a couple of times per year, but I think they lost a customer. Next time I will try another hotel in Ahmedabad.
