Accor recently launched a 132-room Formule 1 in Ahmedabad with two cafes operating within the premises, run by independent operators. Located amidst the elite business and shopping area of Prahladnagar off SG Road, the hotel offers ‘Essential Comfort at a Budget Price’. The rooms at Formule 1 Ahmedabad are stylish and functional. Facilities include flat screen TVs and free WIFI. In-room facilities include quality bedding individually controlled air-conditioning and a worktable. Breakfast is served from 6am to 10am and the snack counter is open till 10pm. They also have vending machines with Indian combo meals 24/7.”We have carefully chosen a location that has many restaurants operating in the vicinity, and also the city’s central business district (CBD) is moving to this part of the city. Right now, it is the best alternate location, apart from the CBD, which brings down our cost of property and allows us to offer competitive tariffs”, Philip Logan, Vice President, Formule 1 Hotels, India, said in the report. After opening Formule 1 in Greater Noida recently, the Ahmedabad property is the Group’s second Formule 1 in India. It is all set to launch a third in Pune next month and plans to have 15 Formule 1 hotels in India over the next few years, reports suggest.
