Gangaram Hotel and Guest House
by nhldc on
Unfortunately our stay at Hotel Gangaram was very disappointing. The hotel itself is nothing special, though we werent expecting it to be any different judging by other information we had read before booking. We were ready to spend our stay in a simple room with no AC though we were immediately let down that the promise of hot water had not included the vital information that it was to be supplied to a single tap, not the entire shower which was as cold as ice and seemed to spray everywhere except where it was pointed. Our dismal bathroom (and much of the rest of the hotel) was also plagued by a terrible stench, thanks to windows that didnt close and what must have been some dodgy plumbing inside the communal toilet outside our room. Though the smell from the ever open window seemed to diffuse by the evening, this was when the noise from surrounding neighbours was allowed to drift into our room. Combined with the noises made by hotel staff in the early morning and the pillow shaped bricks on the bed, we were left with only a few hours of peace per night so were not well rested during our stay. All of this could have been tolerable if it were not for multiple, aggressive interactions with the hotel owner. After foolishly asking for help booking an onward train we were left with him demanding that we pay almost double the acceptable price due to imaginary agent fees that were astronomical compared to the expected and true figures that were shown on the actual ticket invoice that he gave us. After we refused his aggressive, impromptu demand for unreasonable amounts of money he became irate and unable to be reasoned with, despite our calm, collected and sleepy demeanour. This negativity remained for the remainder of our stay and thoroughly ruined what should have been a quick, basic stay in an affordable hotel. We chose Hotel Gangaram as it had been recommended in the Lonely Planet guide book which has always provided an excellent range of options that we have always enjoyed. We think that the guide book should seriously reconsider Hotel Gangaram as an addition to its Bhuj selection as it seems like there are plenty of other more appealing options around at a similar price.

We dared to face the June heat and were met with a warm welcome by the hotel manager and owner. Mr Rajesh organised a trip with an excellent kindly driver to visit local fabric craftspeople and we went to the fabric museum which was excellent. We also enjoyed our trip to the desert although it was not white at this time, it was impressive. The room was simple and very clean and very cool and quiet. We only had a bit of food but it was tasty. This is an excellent choice of stay for Bhuj and we would recommend it.
Nice and clean

It was a nice stay here and rooms were quite spacious. Staff was helpful and room service was quick and fast. Food was good and very hygienic. Overall we liked this place and would like to stay here again. One more thing that prices are not less but reasonable.
Great place to stay and so well placed

We were so happy to find this guesthouse. The owner and staff were delightful, very friendly, kind and helpful. The room was simple but very clean with small ensuite bathroom, great value for money. The situation is perfect, right beside the palace complex and the main market which is full of colourfully dressed villagers. It was a delight to be there and very relaxing. The owner found us an English speaking driver to visit the surrounding countryside, Ishak made us great breakfasts and chai, we thank them all.
it is not anymore the good place to go!!

Hello We went in Ganganam because our old lonely planet wrote so nice on it, but we were very very disappointed! The rooms are 1000 rupees, and small, the tv was not working, and wifi cut at 10pm. The boss is so buisness and hypocrit, charging big commissions for taxi. The personnel is very gentle, as people in Gujarat are soooo nice and straight, it was a big contrast with the atmosphere of the guest house, still full because recommanded on all guides, but the owner is not the same anymore!
Rooms at the top/back are quiestest, but no elevator. No view to miss out on at front.

Choose a room at the back for a bit more quiet in the mornings.

if you want a quiet room - stay in one away from the main street that tends to get VERY noisy in the morning.
