How precious is the heritage site of the House of MG Ahmedabad?
The House of MG is Ahmedabad’s flagship luxury heritage hotel, designated a World Heritage City by UNESCO. One of the city’s oldest buildings, it marvelously reflects 20th-century colonial heritage architecture. The hotel has 38 beautifully furnished rooms that offer all modern facilities in a grand yet homely atmosphere. It is also home to two immensely popular restaurants that are a gastronomic delight – Agashiye and The Green House. The hotel also has a gift shop, a salon and spa, an indoor pool, a fitness club, and luxurious meeting, conference, and party rooms. The new additions to the hotel are a gallery featuring traditional Indian textiles from the Mangaldas family collection, a Tribal heirlooms boutique, and a heritage bookstore to make the guest experience truly unique.
Situated in the heart of Ahmedabad, The House of MG is a luxury heritage hotel built in 1924 as the home of one of the city’s leading businessmen and philanthropists, Sheth Mangaldas Girdhardas. This stately mansion was renovated in the late 1990s with good taste. Built over 25,000 square feet, this is a labyrinth of passageways and stairs. Hanging in the air is a sense of the past. On the walls are antique wooden furnishings, elegantly tiled floors, and old portraits (including one of Mahatma Gandhi’s). The House of MG is blocking its biggest problem-the venue. When you reach its landscaped garden, the noise, the crowds, and the chaos fail to matter.
Take a late breakfast at the café in the courtyard, drink a coffee on their cozy little porch with red stone floors, and a pile of business magazines. Return to your bed, laze on the swing, with an in-room library book. The House of MG even organizes heritage walks for those wishing to explore the city.
One of the most interesting events that took place at the House of MG Ahmedabad was when it brimmed with grandeur with the visit of Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe. Truly a delight to capture what goes on behind the scenes, take this journey with us!
