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. Yes, Ginger is not a 3-star or 4-star hotel as they claim in their marketing in western terms. But, it's not bad for the $60 USD it... More

Avoid this hotel, i had a very unpleasant experience. The restaurant is outsourced to external company and due to that they don't know how to handle hotel guests. They also made me wait for 1 hour to get the room ready. The hotel is in an office building and it feels like you are going to work with all your... More

This hotel is best avoidable, even for budget travellers. There is only one dining option downstairs , with very limited fare, and the room i stayed in had a leaking central AC. I had to wake up at 2amm in the morning to move to another room.

My family stayed at the ginger hotel in taramani in november. NOt the best location and is very difficult to locate with the attitude of the chennai auto drivers. But the view of lush gren campus of IIT is fantastic.
