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.
