Groupon deal on hotel in Pune ... need reviews asap!

Hi all,

Groupon is really famous in the US but I am wondering if it works the same way in India as well.

They have a very cheap hotel deal with Ginger hotels which has 2-3 branches in Pune (www.sosasta.com/pune)

My question is, is ginger a good brand? It is a TATA backed venture so I am quite hopeful of positive reviews.

And also, has anyone had experience buying travel deals with groupon india?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Sonya,

Ginger is a pretty decent chain of budget (do it yourself) hotels.. I have not heard about Groupon in India or seen in the web also. So I personally feel it is not big here.

Let me know in case you want further details.

Ginger in Pune is not well located for sightseeing, if I remember right. One of them is on the highway from Mumbai, well out of the city. Where are you working in Pune?

Thanks guys,

Its helpful to know that Ginger is decent. Groupon is working under sosasta.com so I am leaning towards trusting them.Also, I am looking for no frills.

But Deepa is right. The Pune Gingers are too far from where I am in Koregaon Park. However, this deal is nationwide so I might book it for a smaller city, perhaps use the groupons for my trip to Pondicherry.

Ginger in Pune is only convenient for people going to Hinjewadi. Definitely not for sightseeing.
