Where to stay in Ahmedabad

You'll find a large choice of accommodations across the sprawling urban area of Ahmedabad. Rental accommodations, simple family-run guesthouses, youth hostels, and hotels in formerly residential blocks appear throughout the city, with more established options the closer you get to the river, and the suburban parts offering the most cost-effective choices. On the river's westerly bank sit its main hotels, with a good selection of standard and upmarket options along Paldi Road and those around it.
