“Neat place to stay but bad food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

I usually stay at Ginger during my client visits to Trivandrum since it is the closest to Technopark where most of the clients are put up, that might be the only reason I would be staying at Ginger hotel.

From the time the Ginger hotel chain was launched I was curious to know what it offered as part of the smart basics category and it surely defined smart basics, however the place could be maintained better.

The stay is comfortable and the staff are courteous. The biggest disappointment with the place is the food at The Joint. Do not be surprised if you get to see the same food items in both the lunch buffet, dinner buffet and as part of the following morning breakfast buffet as well.

I have stayed in this place for close to three weeks in the last six months and this hasn't changed during any of my stays. The Cafe coffee day outlet in the lobby offers some good stuff to snack on and is open 24*7 to keep you going through the day. There are also very few restaurant options around the hotel at walkable distance except for may be subway and few other hole in the wall eateries.

The staff have been very helpful and courteous during all my stays. If you are a regular fitness freak, they have a small gym with a treadmill, stepper and couple of dumbbells which I find is most of the time occupied.

I suggest you carry your own everyday items like soap, tooth paste etc as they do not provide you one in the rom and the kiosk in the hotel from which you can pay and get these is non functional every time I visited the place. If you are looking for crisp white linens at your bath, you will be very disappointed.

The first time I visited this place they also had a Kerala therapy centre which is being done by a third party and I think it is seasonal as I didn't get to see such services happening during my later visits.

It is a nice place to stay during business visits and also trips with friends and family if you are looking to visit nearby places in Trivandrum and will be spending very less time in the hotel.

Planned to stay in Sep 2011 and tried to reserve in AUG 2011. There wasn't proper intimation on my reservation either to my email or mobile phone. The payment gateway is y. I came to know only after the money was debited from my credit card and I was lucky to cancel the booking since my stay was planned a month after; otherwise the money would be lost. Non reflection of reservation details on your reservation page and your account. worst ever customer care from the reputed chain. Pls. be careful while making reservation through online portal.

Overall Worst customer care ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We booked this hotel for our training at Trivendrum through our travel-desk, as Ginger hotels are not a luxury place but decent place for the money and it is very close to the IT park.

I liked the spacious rooms and corridors here and the good view from room window. The time of visit was the beginning of monsoon in Kerala and the weather was really cool and nice.

Though we had little time to explore the place, we decided to check with the hotel reception for near about places but we did not get much positive response. Also, the staff at the restaurant is not service oriented or friendly.

This said, there is nothing wrong with the facilities. The room we had was spacious and pretty, the breakfast is good.

The distance to Kovallam beach is nearly 20Km from this hotel.

We would recommend this place for short business trips and budget oriented stays.

it was after almost 4 years that I went back to Ginger. I would have liked to say that there are a lot of improvements. sadly very few... first the positives... the tariff i got was unbeatable for the family trip... second... the staff are very friendly... the food service is better than last time... now to the negatives which they can easily correct.... the rooms need renovation... peeling paint and creaking furniture in some of the rooms we got.. the taxi service is unreliable... better to order with enough margin... I ordered one for 7p.m. never came till 7.20. so i drove myself( i had a car but i did not want to drive in the night).... the coffee day has disappeared... the children would have liked it.... the main draw back is that it is way out of the city centre and the main railway station (but closer to airport).. it was no problem for me since I was driving into the city and I did not have to go through the heavy city traffic... also there are no good restaurants around. so you end up eating in the hotel with very few menu options.

may be they should have a look at the ibis who are masters in space management and their restaurant service is way ahead..

Even with all these draw backs i may go again... after all they have TATA name attached.

if you happen to get a tariff of under 1800/- per night this place is fabulous value for money. moreso if your work happens to be in techno park. the room is good and so is the service. the only complaint is the staff at the restaurant are pretty lethargic.
