I stayed here last weekend while participating in the Kaveri Half Marathon.
When i go for a budget hotel i look for something that is like my house, nothing fancy. Most budget hotels that i have seen fall into the trap of trying to emulate the star hotels by providing lets say bath tubs, phone in the bathroom (who needs this really). Most people who stay at budget hotels are not in for a long duration and are seeking nothing more than just regular comfort.
Ginger hotel seems to have cracked it. Walking into Ginger is like walking into your home. There are no bell boys to carry your bags. You walk into the room and you will find a comfortable bed, a wardrobe, study table and a small refrigerator. What more does one need. True some people may say that there is no enough space in the room to walk around but then how many of us have so much room space in our house any ways. Most bedrooms in Bangalore are just "Bed" rooms and nothing else will fit right?
Bathroom is perfect and clean with no fancy stuff. A shower, washbasin and a commode.
The best part is that they have a Tata Sky satellite connection. Most star hotels (even some properties of Taj) go wrong here where they provide the best LCD TV but relay a bad cable service that is mostly unwatchable.
Most reviews i read here complained about the food. When we go for budget hotels we cannot expect the best in class chef to be in their kitchens. So lets not expect them to be making the best biryanis or kebabs. Stick to basics. We ordered for dal, roti and lemon rice. All came in in just 15 mins, hot and sealed in nice aluminium foil so that nothing falls into it en route from the kitchen to the room (again something that most hotels would not think of).
They also have buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner but we didn't try that. the coffee day outlet is good. what more would you want then a nice room and a good coffee in the morning.
The location of the hotel is awesome, its away from the traffic but not very far from the palace. just about 2 KMS i suppose.
On the improvement side - i believe they could do well on the pricing. The regular price is around 4K. I got a weekend discounted offer for just 2K. For 2K it is fine but 4K may be a tad too much.
