“Excellent Business friendly and economical option in Chennai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

I stayed in this hotel for a night while I was on a business trip to Chennai

Ginger Chennai is located in the 11th Floor of IIT Chennai Research Park campus. The website claims that it takes fourty five minutes (8-10 kms) by road from Airport & the bus stand and about an hour (13-15 kms) from the railway station to reach the hotel.

Positives
1. Located close to the Ascendas IT Park and Tidel Park
2. Being a Tata Enterprise, it is a safe and secure option
3. Efficient and fast Check-in and Check out
4. Courteous staff, spic and span room including the bath room
5. Online booking facility

Others
Food court on the Ground Floor offers a decent choice of food at reasonable rates but is really slow.

Areas of improvement
1. The location (a little away from the main road) is not very familiar with the cab drivers. This creates potential problems while hiring cabs 2. This facility lacks a hotel. While there is an option of using the Food Court located in the ground floor, one invariably has to skip Break Fast since this one does not start until 8:30 A.M. on most days.
3. Check-in Check Out at 12 Noon. This creates problems for people who want an early morning Check in.

Room Tip: Insist on rooms facing the IIT Chennai Research Park entrance. The greenery outside is refreshing. E...

No complaints about the Hotel and staff. Very well managed. But the location is very far from the city hub with very poor connectivity. I would not suggest this location to anybody travelling to Chennai for sightseeing or for that matter even business trips. There are far better located hotels with similar packages available at better parts of the city.

The hotel is on 11th floor and a bit difficult to locate. We reached the hotel at 8.00am. Maintenance and housekeeping is excellent and we were really impressed. We were told that the restaurant is on ground floor. When we got down there at 10.30 am for breakfast, most of the items were not ready. Again at 3.00 for lunch, almost all the items were finished. Actually the building houses many offices also from 1st to 10 th floor and the restaurant serves them all. The restaurant does not belong to Ginger hotel. Definitely it is a Not a very encouraging situation.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

This was a personal trip for my wife's cousin's engagement. We were travelling with my twin infants and a domestic help.
The property is a little way out, but since we had a car with us, it wasn't as bad as it could have perhaps got in a city where auto rickshaws specialize in daylight robbery.
We had specified while booking online that we would need an extra bed. When we reached the hotel, there was some goof up, and the systems did not show our requirement. My maid could not possibly sleep on the floor, so we requested the staff to arrange one for us. Not only were they unable to understand basic English - my wife is a Tamilian and even tried to communicate in the local language, to no avail - they were discourteous and actually started a verbal fight with us when we showed our unhappiness with the situation. Apparently, they don't keep an extra bed in the hotel. Then why did the Ginger website give the option for an extra bed, I wonder. Anyway, it was a couple of hours before the mattress finally arrived.
Once the extra bed arrived, it was another story. The rooms are so small, there was practically no place to step after the bed was put. It was quite cramped with 3 adults and 2 babies. Thankfully, we were not going to be in the room for most of the stay. And my babies were just seven months old and not toddling around.
The AC for some reason worked only on one temperature. By the time we discovered it in the night, it was too late to ask for a change of room.
There's a food court on the ground floor with a decent choice and good food at reasonable rates.
There's a small manicured lawn where we would walk the babies.
All in all, no regrets, but would not go back.

Room Tip: If you want an extra bed, avoid this place.

I stayed in this hotel on one of my business trips to Chennai during Jul 2011 and had a very good experience. Quality of service was good. very clean hotel. Food was not so exciting but ok. Real value for money.

Room Tip: Try to get one with a outside view. Some of the rooms have windows facing another wall.
