Historical Traveller Reviews of Ginger Mysore Hotel
Excellent no frills business hotel
The Ginger is a no-frills business hotel, and very comfortable for a 2-night stay. The lobby contains a buffet restaurant and a lovely Expresso bar that had surprisingly fine croissant sandwiches. Safes are avaiable in a room behind the front desk, and we found laundry to be very reasonable. Wi-fi cards are purchased at the front desk.
The hotel is in a quiet section of town, but far enough from the center that you almost certainly require a cab to get there.
Regardless of why you might be in Mysore, don't miss visiting the Mysore Palace!
The Best hotel ever seen......No disturbance,great service,complete privacy..
We, my hubby and me went to Mysore ooty for our honeymoon on 18thOct, we had our booking done in Ginger Mysore about one month back. It was the superb place to stay in..... Surrounded by trees and fresh pollution free environment was just excellent. We had a great time of 3nights and 4days in Mysore. But Ginger hotel has added a very percious flavour to the most romantic event of my life.
I would always recommand any of my friends, relatives about this hotel. I myself will never leave an opportunity to stay theer in near future......... :)
A long weekend ahead of us and then we decided to visit Mysore for the world famous DASARA festival. Initial thought of a budget hotel but with all the ambiences along we got more than value for money at this hotel as it just costs just over 25 USD. It is in the heart of the city walkable to every locations in the city. One of the memorable experience and a holiday sept with the good stay very good toilets , beds the coffee shop. GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY.
Its nice stay
I have booked a room at ginger during the month of july for 2 days with my relatives.
realy it was very fentastick stay bcoz they have good rooom service and everything in my room was perfect.
Finally i would like to say that if u r going anywhere, first ask for Ginger.
Actaually we two families stayed there, we were given rooms adjacent where by opening the miidle door we can access both the rooms.we both families had kids so it was a awesome stay for the kids as they enjoyed moving around both the rooms, still my kid talks about that hotel often.It was great!!!!
Good place to stay
on our way to Ooty .. we decided to spent night at Mysore and we wanted a good family hotel with reasonable budget. it was indeed more than our expectation. We enjoyed our stay throughly.
A great sleeping spot for eager sightseers
A clean minimalist experience. The layout is not grand but the rooms are comfy and well maintained. The restaurant had a good selection of food. We definitely recommend this for people planning on a weekend getaway to Mysore. If you are going to spend most of your time outdoors, seeing the sights and sounds of the city you can't go wrong with this simple but satisfying overnight stay. The utilitarian shower does not have a stall - only a curtain, which may surprise the average westerner. The hotel was definitely worth the money and provided all the comforts for travel without unnecessary services or costs.
just the business
Picked this hotel from website and was pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel. As it was the Xmas period the hotel was full and as our flight was late we were the last to book in which meant there was only one room which was at the front of the hotel. The staff were on the phone all the time which was annoying but when I asked to move there was no where they could move me to and promised to move us next day which they did. The hotel buffet was good and reasonable as was the breakfast choice.As the hotel had an atrium this meant that the noise of the children running round carried but once they went to bed it was quiet inside. The rooms are clean and bright with a plasma TV and good value for money
Enjoyed my stay
The Ginger Hotel is pretty much of a self-service hotel but I enjoyed it. Rooms were quiet, clean, bright and comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. There is a coffee bar in the lobby with excellent, but expensive (by Indian prices) coffee and snacks. No ala carte restaurant, but pretty good buffet meals. Internet service is offered but very expensive unless you have your own computer and purchase a 24-hour card. Location is a short auto rickshaw ride from the center of town. Wouldn't recommend this hotel for families but great for the single, couple or business traveller.
We found the room and the hotel itself to be neat, clean, fresh-smelling, convenient and with all the basic amenities. The staff were bright, efficient and helpful. The buffets were very good. The snacks at Coffee Day were rubbery by afternoon. Internet access was very expensive.
Top Local Tips for Mysore
How to get there place to eat
We took a taxi from the airport and it took ages to get out of the city. We discovered that for the return you can get a ticket for the railway journey for about £1.70. If you are over 60 you get a senior rate and can go straight to the window to get the ticket after filling out your journey and train number obtained from the enquiry desk. It cost us £25 by taxi from the airport to our hotel and £6 with tuktuk and train from our hotel and to the airport.We ate at lunch time at RRR near Ghandi square and had an excellent thali for very little money served on a banana leaf. In the evening we were recommended Hotel Siddarth which was airconditioned family hotel and very good value for money.
Visit the Hotel near to Giner called Myllary where u get the traditional DOSA excellent .
Avoid extended weekends
Avoid extended weekends, as the rush is too high. Rather take a friday off and travel to Mysore, if you want to capture all sight seeing avoiding the mad rush on extended weekends
