“Serviceable, not luxurious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Pluses: Clean, quiet (hotel starts on 11th floor, away from traffic noise), shower delivers hot water AT ONCE, courteous service at desk, free computers in lobby for guest use, breakfast (limited menu) included.
Minuses: Rooms small and sparsely furnished.
Ignore swimming pool and fitness center choices -- neither exists.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the larger ones. Rooms vary in size (small and very small).

The rooms are quite small (smaller than the other Ginger hotel in Chennai) and I thought that the overall cleanliness could have been a little more tip top. A major issue was the AC. It would at times offer excellent cooling, but for large periods, the cooling effect was somehow not noticeable. The in house food options are mediocre and certainly not value for money (very expensive, but not so tasty).

Went thru the below reviews before going to this hotel, as it was a business trip had to book all of sudden. The hotel is decent enuf for a short trip to chennai, its on the 100ft road and center of chennai. Due to the metro work there is huge traffic near the hotel.

It has good sized rooms with facilities, got a b/f as complimentry and there was a hotel in the 2nd floor. CCD is down and it was a good add to it. You dont get any room services as it is followed same in all ginger chain hotel.

I woould rate 3/5 for ginger.

Room Tip: take the room which is open for sunlight

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights...Its about 20 min from airport. The rooms are very small. The menu was vey sparse.

The rooms were very good. Very neat & clean. However, the price doesn't include complimentry B/F and that means it reduces it VFM proposition.

I would suggest to stay only if you do not have any other choice.

I stayed for 3 days at Ginger Hotel, Vadapalani. Concept of the hotel is very bad. Entry of the hotel sucks big time. Rooms are very small. Restaurant is kind of expensive. Stay only when you don't have a choice.

Hi, If you are a regular traveler and you are familiar with Ginger hotel, I will not discuss much about the room/ service etc. It is exactly what you expect from Ginger! No surprises, what so ever. The rooms are neat and clean, you have a smooth check in & check out.
But the new tariff of Ginger really surprises you. For a single occupancy RS.3500 per day at any time is not a budget hotel. I am sure "Trip adviser" could suggest so many hotels in chennai a much better place to stay at this price. I am sure this statement is true for much smaller cities than Chennai.I am sure Ginger occupancy rate will be low. Ideally, the rates should be between RS.2000 to RS.2500; anything more it is not worth using Ginger.

I basically liked the very concept of Ginger Hotels and had a comfortable stay at Haridwar / Nashik/ Pune / Ahmedabad and Tiruppur. Assuming this I checked in with my family at Ginger Hotel Vadapalani ( I did'nt felt the need to see the rooms , a big mistake which I realized later). Only after making the payment, we got into the room, which was practically a rathole. If 2 persons stay in the room, they will virtually collide while moving. I really had a very bad experience of Ginger this time.
