Hotel Balwas turned out to be a great place to stay. The staff are very friendly. It was nice to find this place in a city that doesn't seem to cater much to foreign tourists. There are a few places in the area to stay, but this one is a great hotel. The price is reasonable, the room was very clean, and wifi is available with a code you can get from the reception desk. If you want a hot shower, do it during the day, if possible. That's when the water seems to be hottest. I would strongly recommend Hotel Balwas to anyone passing through Ahmedabad who needs a place to stay.
