A memorable stay..
on Aug 22, 2017
I was in Ahmedabad with a friend for our kids' National Level competition of UCMAS (Mental Arithmetic). We stayed from 18th to 20th August 2017.
The best part of our stay was the location of the hotel and ease of travel to anywhere in the city. Staff was polite and cooperative. Rooms were average sized, with all basic amenities including WiFi. Rooms were cleaned everyday.There is some room for cleanliness of the bed-sheets, although the rooms were very clean. Food was simple and fine, although they lack variety (especially in Chinese food). It's on 5-10 mins distance from Sabarmati Ashram. even our competition venue- Eka Club near Kankaria lake was barely 30 mins drive even during rush hours. Hotel Receptionist was very courteous and helpful. She gave us many travel tips too. Some of the auto drivers in Ahmedabad were exceptionally honest and polite. It was a nice trip with no problems at all.Stay at Damji's was good.
In general the people of Ahmedabad are helpful and simple. Liked the place a lot.
Horrible !! Go without luggage. Else be prepared for cheap n rowdy language and behaviour from Deadly Darshana

We booked 4 rooms for 2 nights in this haunted hotel with practically 10-20% occupancy. We did not expect anything great from it since we chose it only for night stay as we were out almost in the days. Bedsheets STINK so as the bathroom. A/c shuts off as and when the management decides to shut it. It then depends on how desperately you plead for it, that it would start back again. This happens even after midnight. If this was not enough, we requested to let us keep 5 bags in their cloak room, to which this lady called Darshana who appeared from nowhere started howling and screaming and daring us of non responsiblity of even a single bag. The female members kept requesting her, but she got all the more rowdy and nasty. Darshana was a nightmare and we cant still get her out of our system. Guys, seriously consider a better optiion than DAMJIS..
safe, clean, great for solo female travelers

I am a female and was staying there on my own. Not once did I feel unsafe in the hotel (or in Ahmedabad). I had a simple room: double bed, tv, shower. It's not a posh place but it is very clean, the staff is polite, respectful and helpful. The restaurant makes delicious clean food and it's quite inexpensive. It is well located on Ashram Road less than a ten minute walk from Sabarmati River, some great cafes and art organizations. No one can enter the living area without being grilled by the desk staff. They speak English and Hindi as well as Gujarati. They accept credit cards. Wifi was fine. The water for the shower is warm straightaway and plentiful. Excellent place for a solo female traveler to stay!
better to look for options...

The only USP of this Property is its location, right on the Ashram Road and very near to places that a Business traveller or Tourist might be interested to visit.
The rooms are average sized (they are not small), but the decoration and furniture is quite dated. Unfortunately, my room had no hot water in the cold morning and was not attended to.
At this price point, this may be ok for an overnight stay but better to look out for options

Very small rooms, the biggest we got was 13*13, terrible room service, dirty linen, unclean towels, no tissue, no drinking water, rude lady receptionist, leaky washroom. A dormitory is better. Please avoid.
