Spend 3 nights in Ginger, 29 of December to 1 of January. What should I start with? The first room we were offered smelled of damp, the second (the one we were offered after I requested a change) had huge wet stains on the wall, paint peeling off, and a very loud AC. Maybe there was something more, I didn't... More

My family visited Pondicherry from Bangalore and stayed at Ginger hotel during Christmas week. Best thing about this hotel is its location (close to M.G. Road). If you do not want to spend much on beach facing resorts then go for Ginger. The main attractions like Beach road, Promenade hotel, Aurobindo Asharam, popular eat-outs and various temples and churches are... More

Dear Guest, We are glad to note that your recent stay at Ginger Pondichery has met your expectations. At Ginger, we do keep the windows locked as a part of the guest safety procedure which is also a requirement as per norms. Invariably the air-conditioner system and the bathroom exhaust helps in air circulation. We would invariably look into the... More

This one is a decent hotel Pros: Clean rooms Nice Food Friendly (but not overly courteous - which often becomes annoying) staff. Cons: Slightly inconvenient if you are of the type - who wants to quickly hop out for a stroll. Little far from the beach and most of the happening places in Pondy (about 2kms). Breakfast options are rather... More

We stayed at Ginger for 2 nights. It is more of a clean budget hotel with basic ameneties available. The rooms are somewhat small sized. Staff is courteous and they accomodate our early check-in request.

It was my first visit to puducherry and didn't know the language to have booked any local hotel in the same budget so went for Ginger. Ginger was as expected well maintained, good service and small but clean rooms. So if your trip is planned around visiting many places and not care about the room size, go for ginger. The... More

You don't expect much in a low tariff no frills hotel. But this was a pleasant surprise. Room was clean, compact and well designed. Plug points were adjacent to bed for mobiles. All light and air conditioning switches were also adjacent. You have a simple clean bathroom with fresh towels and liquid soap. And the hotel sends you the WiFi... More
