Historical Traveller Reviews of Ginger Hotel
Value for moneyfrom BinnyM
The TV viewing experience was a royal one with the flat screen and comfortable beds to sit and watch in. It made me feel good for i was able to watch my fav shows even on a holiday.
The cafe coffee day outlet with 24 hour service and small book shop had a lot to offer and the resturant by a south indian star truly gave an exclusive feeling of being a valued guest. Perfectly relaxing stay. I plan a trip to Pondicherry again and it is more to do with Ginger experience.
Overall we could not believe we were getting all this luxury at such an amazingly low price and we spent 2 days feeling each penny's worth. And that's when we called up some other friends who were planning a trip to Pondicherry and recommended them the hotel strongly. We look forward to Ginger experience at other places as well.
Budget and Freedom Hotelfrom connect_svn
Good value for money except one perverted Ginger staff memberfrom Dune283
Paying less to stay in a hotel like Ginger definitely should not mean putting up with deviants like these.
Good rooms, but pathetic locationfrom moss_toss
The main issue is that it is not in the French district at all. We had to go through the main market areas each day to reach the French areas and the beach. We had to rent a bike so we could easily move around. However, given that we went there to relax, a hotel in the French district would be much better.
The hotel itself is fine. The rooms are well appointed, and for the price the overall fit and finish is quite nice. However, if you are going to live in Pondicherry, living anywhere except for the French quarter is not advisable.
Simple.. Basic.. cheap !from bestofbala
1) hotel is basic. It is simple and neat. It has got a mini air conditioner, compact LCD tv, contemporary interiors and easily accessible from and to French town.
2) The restaurant and the CCD coffee shop make this hotel look like a mini mall and in weekends, it gets nasty with visitors rather than guests.
3) Location was not great at all. If you prefer to hit this hotel for just sleeping, book in this one. there is no view of beach or sand from this. Pondy is a little town and with no such feature, the price is quite high.
Good property...butfrom jshanksBang
Check-in is where the problem started, we had booked for 4 rooms, inspite of the check-in time at 12 noon, the rooms were not ready when we arrived ie at 3 PM. We were told the systems are down...after 30 min of wait..we were given one room to freshen up and were told the other rooms would be ready in the next 30 min. We decided to dump our luggages freshen up and spend time on the beach road. We requested the reception to keep the rooms ready when we returned. We retured at around 7 PM and guess what..the rooms were still not alloted to us...it seems some corporated guest overstayed and it will take another hour for the rooms to get ready.....what an excuse :) It was something we didnt expect from a profession hotel chain like "Ginger". Once we raised our voices and gave a peace of our mind to the guys at the reception, guess what ...the rooms were allotted in the next 10 min....
Rooms were very comfortable..Cozy beds, nice lighting, LCD TV, Fridge....But then it looked like our stay was jinxed.....we switched on the AC...after a few min..the room started smelling.... later realised the smell was from the Gutter (Sewage ) which runs next to the hotel. Guess what this was same case for all rooms located on the gutter side (3 out of 4 rooms of our family were on gutter side). The 4th one was lucky. We called the reception, but they had no solution.....So we had to go without the AC for the duration of the stay...
To sum up...excellent property...but the irritants like the check-in process and the smell from the gutter made our stay not all that pleasent......
EASY ACCESS: Ginger Hotel is located in one of the prime locations of Pondicherry. Rather, let me put it this way- Almost everyone in Pondicherry regards 'Hotel Ginger' as a landmark by itself. So don't worry to get mislead.
FRIENDLY, YET PROFESSIONAL STAFF: You can't call it as a coincidence when you find everyone working in this hotel to be customer-friendly. Right from the security personnel to the hotel manager. But more importantly the front desk staff. I was particulary impressed with an employee named 'Saranya' who was pretty good at her work.
OVERALL RATING OF 5 (out of 5): Considering the overall experience during my stay at Ginger hotel, Pondicherry; I'd give this hotel a rating of 5 out 5. Best feature(s) of Ginger Hotel: Courteous staff, cleanliness, Wi-Fi option, Gym, tie-up with Pizza corner & CCD. All this in a pretty reasonable rate.
Thank you, Ginger Hotel - for making my stay in this beautiful city a little more memorable than I expected :)

Value for moneyfrom tuns23
The only negative is that the hotel hasnt got a swimming pool and indoor games. But who needs them either when one is at pondicherry.
Situated in close vicinity of the beaches its an ideal place to stay.
hotel has a restaurant, book shop, a cafe coffee day and good parking space.
Nice place to stay and highly recommended
Top Local Tips for Pondicherry
Hot Being a beach town it is generally hot during the day. Drink loads of water and eat good food.
By road If you arrive by road - ECR especially, look for the clock tower in Muthialpet and enter into the RIght lane adjoining the clock tower. This property is about 20-30 feet far away from the clock tower. And, to reach ashram or manakula vinayagar temple or beach or french town as such, get back to the clock tower and take right (proceed on the ECR ), take left on the signal, you will reach the beach.
Hotel Ginger Is the best budget hotel from a branded group so you can be rest assured about their services, you have lot of budget hotels in pondicherry but they are not part of any professional group.
