The House of MG is a premier boutique heritage hotel in Ahmedabad, the UNESCO declared World Heritage City. One of the oldest buildings in the city, it wonderfully represents the architectural colonial heritage architecture of the early 20th century. The hotel has 38 beautifully appointed rooms, offering all modern amenities in a grand but homely ambiance. It is also home to two hugely popular restaurants – Agashiye and The Green House that are a gastronomic delight. In addition, the hotel has a gift shop, a salon and spa, an indoor swimming pool, health club, and beautiful meeting, conference and party spaces. A gallery showcasing traditional textiles of India from the Mangaldas family collection, a Tribal heirlooms boutique and a heritage bookstore are the latest additions to the hotel to make the guest experience truly special.
Renowned for its traditional hospitality, this early 20th-century mansion, home to a prominent textile Merchant and entrepreneur was host to Mahatma Gandhi, who first stayed here for a few days after his return from South Africa in 1915. This palatial building was restored with an aim to adaptively reuse the spaces to cater to a modern lifestyle without losing either the historical perspective or the traditional customs of a Gujarati home!
Dev Viman, the grand tented space on the terrace of The House of MG with Alexander Calder inspired mobile from handcrafted wooden flying god idols and a digitally painted ceiling inspired by Pachhedi Artists, is the ideal venue for parties, social gatherings or business conferences. The Agashiye Lounge & Garden, with majestic stain glass windows, makes for a perfect venue for a celebratory event or occasion. The Lounge opens up to the lawns – Terrace Garden, which is a beautiful option for open banqueting or for ceremonies or function.
“All the rooms are vast, verandah-edged and masterfully decorated, with homey yet luxurious ambiance. It’s an icon of the upper classes, and hugely popular. Service is first-rate, there are two excellent restaurants, an indoor swimming pool and gym are divine.”
THE LONELY PLANET GUIDE
“The House Of MG is what all hotels want to be- incredibly luxurious without being aloof, beautifully restored and a staff that still retains the old world charm of visiting someone’s haveli (mansion) and being welcomed as house guests. I actually whooped with joy at the sight of my suite. It is so beautiful that I walk around taking in all the little details that have been so thoughtfully added.”
