I must share the reality side of my trips to Chennai on work continuously in the last three years. I got introduced to Ginger chain because I am hardcore TATA fan. Now the IITM Chennai Ginger property is the one which I usually stayed at. This guy - Anbu is a great host (well he is not host, but behaved... More

First, lets get this clear. I love Ginger as a chain, and totally get its value proposition. I have stayed in more than one Ginger property, and have rated their Mumbai property as "Excellent" in Tripadvisor. With that context, let's say that if Ginger Mumbai is "Excellent", Ginger at IITM campus, Chennai is "Terrible". Its located in Taramani, on the... More

We stayed here as 2 family's of 3 each when we attened a wedding function last week. This hotel is located entirely only on the 11th floor of IITM research park building. Hence very less can be expected in terms of ambience, activities and spaciousness. When we checked in, we were given rooms on the inside of the floor, inspite... More

Not great....Suitable for Business trips and not for family stays. The breakfast is outsourced to some other vendor in the same building, with some pathetic quality and limited options. Commuting is also tough as you don't get anything if you want to step out....

About the place: I went for a workshop in IIT madras. So first of all it is convenient if you are going nowhere other than IIT. One of the gates of IIT campus is near to the ginger hotel. Just slip through that to reach anywhere within IIT Madras. You got to walk for about 5-10mins to avail the shuttle... More

Hotel Ginger (Tharamani - Chennai) is somewhat different from other Ginger properties. Firstly, this is located on a floor within a Building. Secondly, anything to eat is available only on the ground floor - and only upto some fixed time. The breakfast is served in some area downstairs whose ambiance and cleanliness can definitely be improved. Further, either there is... More

Look, I used to teach in India and, as an American, you have certain expectations, but when you go to India, throw them out the window and let the culture flow through you.
