I had a business trip to Ahmedabad along with my colleague, and made reservations at Ginger. While doing the reservation the guy at the other end informed that rooms were available and that he shall be giving a confirmation call in another 5 minutes; which never happened. I landed at Ahmedabad and went straight to hotel assuming my reservation was confirmed. I also needed to rush to work just dropping off my luggage; but upon reaching the hotel the guy at the front desk also very rudely informed me that the booking was only provisional and that I had to make an advance payment to ensure that the booking is confirmed. Upon insisting, he asks me to wait for an hour atleast before he can give us one room only. Finally after a lot of discussion and waiting for about half an hour, we were given a room; where both my colleague and myself dumped our luggage and went off to work. Fortunately by the time we returned in the evening, we were given two different rooms. I travel a lot but this was in so far the worst hotel check-in experience ever.
The rooms were clean, but the hotel changes linens only after three days. House keeping is so effiecient that after me telling them to clean my room and stepping out for like four hours on a sunday, the room was still a mess by the time I returned. They keep one half litre bottle of water in the room. Unfortunately for you, if you drink up all of it, you will yourself have to go the end of the corridor to fill your bottle. The faucets in the bathroom, were meant for drilling I think. Please use them at your own risk.
Food is OK OK. The service is yet another example of mismanagement. The first day, me and my colleague had to wait for like 5 minutes, as they were out of plates. Menu for breakfast buffet is limited, but they entertained my request for omlette instead of boiled eggs. Coffee is made only once in the morning, and if you are late for breakfast, you end up drinking cold coffee instead of a hot one; which they later changed upon my suggesstion. They provided me with a table spoon to stir sugar in my coffee- grossly incompetent service. More so the table was not cleaned after the previous person (s) left.
