Treebo Ambassador: Great Budget Hotel to Explore Heritage City of Ahmedabad

I am the kind of traveler who loves staying close to all the action, especially if I happen to be exploring a large city. And hence when I was planning to explore India’s only world heritage city of Ahmedabad, I pretty much started looking for good hotels in the vicinity of the walled city. The requirements were simple: budget hotel, modern creature comforts and ease of access to the heritage sites.  And that is when my search took me to Treebo Ambassador Hotel, that is located near the Nehru bridge area of Ahmedabad. Treebo Hotels, which is a new chain of budget hotels across India, had good reviews and ratings and thus I took the plunge and ended up staying 2 days and 2 nights with them. This property review is based on this recent experience of mine.

Fantastic Location

The Iconic SIddi Syed Jaali work of Ahmedabad

I cannot rave enough about the location of this hotel. It is just a 4 minute walk to Siddi Syed Mosque (one of the icons of Ahmedabad’s rich heritage), about a 10 minute walk to Manek Chowk (the main market area and the evening food street) and just a couple of kilometers from the railway station, if you happen to enter or exit via Indian Railways. And the ease of access also augurs very well if you are interested in going on those early morning or late evening heritage walks in the walled city. Even the Sabarmati river front is just a stone’s throw away. All in all, Treebo Ambassador hotel enjoys fantastic location.

Quiet Rooms

One of the perils of staying in the city center, especially in an Indian city is the high level of noise owing to the busy nature of the location. I was so happy when I found out that my room in the hotel was super quiet. After a day out in the busy city, all we need is a good night’s sleep and a super quiet room goes a long way in getting that done.

Modern Comforts at a Budget Price

Each room of Treebo Ambassador offers adjustable air-conditioning, satellite television, running hot showers, good quality wi-fi, comfortable mattresses and pillows, hot water kettles with coffee and tea sachets and well lit rooms. Personally, I would have preferred a little firmer and taller mattress, but otherwise it was fine. And all of this is usually available for below INR 2000 per night per room. If you catch a season discount or any co-branded cashbacks, you could potentially get it for a much cheaper price.

Complimentary Breakfast and In-House Restaurant

The in-house restaurant dishes out some good food, which I got to try a couple of times. The complimentary breakfast is simple, but tasty fare. The only suggestion would be to start breakfast at 7 AM instead of 8 AM, so that it enables all those early morning heritage walks and for those who have early morning checkouts.

Helpful Front Desk

Check-in and check-out was a breeze for me and the front desk were kind enough to help answer my various questions like, how to get here, which is best place to eat Gujarati lunch, how far is this location and so on and so forth. In this day and era of Google Maps, Uber, Ola and good connectivity, all the information is usually found on the web and we usually don’t need much guidance, but it is always nice to get a local’s perspective. And I got all of this with a smiling face, which is very much comforting when you are traveling.

Overall, if you are looking for a good budget hotel in the vicinity of the heritage city of Ahmedabad, but at the same time that is not too far away from the riverfront, I would recommend you to take a look at Treebo Ambassador Hotel, a great pick of the many budget hotels in Ahmedabad. It is one of those places that offer good value for money while providing you modern day comforts.I would certainly recommend it!
