Vadodara is one of the most prime, cosmopolitan cities of the Gujarat State in India. Thousands of visitors visit this city, either for pleasure or business. Many hotels are available for the stay of the outside visitors. We had stayed at Hotel Apex international for three days to enjoy the hotel life of Vadodara during our recent visit to India. I am going to cover brief review of this hotel in this article.
Hotel Apex International is situated just opposite to Sardar Patel Statue in Sayajigunj area, at a distance of just two minutes walk from railway station and around five minutes walk from the main bus station. This is a three star hotel and is one of the most popular hotels of the Vadodara city. The hotel has four types of room accommodations available. They are standard, deluxe, super deluxe, and the deluxe suits. The rates for all these categories are Rs.1200 ($24), Rs.1600 ($32), Rs.2000 ($40), and Rs.3600 ($72) respectively per day for a nice and cozy double room. The luxury taxes of 4% in addition to these charges are required to be paid by the customers. Each and every room has a large 27 inch size colored TV with cable connections, wall to wall carpet, excellent toilet blocks with shower facility with running hot and cold water, the king size double bed, the sofa chairs for two, the small coffee table, and the couple of plastic chairs in the balcony attached to each room. There is a running hot water facility round the clock in all hotel rooms. The super deluxe rooms and the luxury suits are having the tub bath facility. There are in all five floors of the hotel. The main reception is at the ground floor. The room service is available all twenty four hours, on round the clock basis. Though, there is no independent restaurant attached to this hotel, the hotel has a tie up with the couples of nearby restaurants. The complementary breakfast is served here at the hotel to all the guests. This breakfast is served in your rooms through the room service, based on your individual order. The Gujarati, Punjabi, and standard South Indian food delicacies are available at the hotel in the breakfast. The hotel is having split air conditioners in each room so that you can adjust the room temperature as per your need. The hotel’s location is such that there are many restaurants of various categories available for lunch and the dinner, very near to the hotel, just within five minutes walk only. However, if you want to have your lunch or dinner at the hotel only, you will have to get them in your rooms through room service.
The 24 hours delivery laundry facilities are available at the hotel. The doctor is available all 24 hours on call service at the hotel. The security service is also quiet good at the hotel. There is a large parking space just at the hotel in an underground parking lot. The hotel can offer some discounts up to around 20 % based on the season and the flow of the visitors. You will need to book your accommodation in advance at this hotel as there is a very heavy rush of visitors, almost all throughout the year, in this industrial headquarters of the Gujarat State. If you inform in advance, hotel can provide the airport pick up or drop out also with no additional charges. There is also an electrical generating set installed at the hotel that can supply electricity to all the hotel rooms in case of power failures. However, it may be noted that the air conditioners will not work during the power outage periods. Though, the power failures are not that common in this part of the country. The reception service is active all twenty four hours of the day. If you want to book your train or air tickets, the hotel staff can do that for you. The hired cars and taxis can also be arranged by the hotel management on special requests. The hotel cleanliness is excellent and the entire staff is also very polite and offers excellent service.
As a conclusion, our stay at this lovely hotel was really enjoyable and hence, I have no hesitation in recommending this luxurious hotel to all my AC readers and friends. I am sure that they all will be able to enjoy their stay at this hotel during their next visit to Vadodara city in India.
