“Not value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Ginger Hotel Guwahati is located at couple of hours drive from Guwahati airport. It is on the outskirts of city and reaching there may be difficult in night (though they provide free conveyance till nearest auto stand named "six miles"). Reception is good with well groomed and helpful staff; they have in house CCD and a ground floor restaurant. Rooms are big and clean but you have to do lots of trial and error to open the room with minimum attempt with the swipe card. Bathroom is so small and they do not provide any toiletries apart from liquid soap and shampoo. Overall the courtesy and the professionalism of the staff and good upkeep makes it a decent hotel but it is overpriced at present level of services.

Wat more to say bout Ginger, it is always the best and the maintains the set standards all across India. Security, Ambiance, Staff, Food all are perfect and value for money for every penny. It is a self service hotel although but now also gives an excellent room service, cafe coffee day is also there in many Ginger Hotels now. Its very safe even for single lady travellers for official purpose and no hassles hotel. You can ask for package for better value. Highly Recommended.

A good budget hotel. Very basic but you get what you pay for. The rooms were clean and well maintained.

The Cafe was good and the staff polite. The Ginger car was convenient for getting to the airport - but was the only option, Taxis just didn't stop near the hotel.

You don't pay Taj prices you don't get Taj quality but for a few nights on business it's got everything you need.

Rooms are identical as other Ginger hotel in other city.

However the service of this Ginger is best among other Ginger hotel I stayed before. Only down side is the location is quite isolated and quite a distance from the main road. Doesn't look safe to walk out alone at night.

I have stayed in Ginger, Bhubaneshwar for few times and I was very impressed of the service and rooms at a reasonable rates. I expected the same in Guwahati and was disappointed. The reception looked dark and dull. The room given to me was dirty. The AC looked pretty old and about to break. The towels were yellowish, toilet again dirty.

Location is away from the main city. In the evening when I returned from meeting ... it was kinda scary as it seemed in the middle of nowhere. All dark around it.

I wasn't expecting any luxury but this was far below my expectation. Not a well maintained Ginger.

Room Tip: Check your room before making payment... ask to change the room if found dirty

Had checked in to Ginger Ghu on a trip to the N.E. It was a holiday trip and the only reason I booked a 'biz' hotel was because it was about the only hotel whose quality I could ascertain from the internet.

It didn't disappoint at all. Everything was as it should be. Clean check-ins. No hassels and no frills. The room was clean and functional. It had everything a business traveller (or a eyes-wide-open tourist like me) would need - except may be a hairdryer. Do read the terms or stay before you book (esp. if you are booking as part of some promo offer from Ginger). Some things like check-in times and breakfast inclusions which in other hotels may be flexible are not so here.

Given the absence of other dining options around the hotel, the cafe thankfully serves a pretty good buffet.The in-room dining menu on the other hand can be called abysmal at best. So word of advice - get out of the room to eat.

Going ANYWHERE from the hotel is going to take a bit of commuting. Even if you wanted to go to shopping centres in GHU like GS road, a taxi from the hotel is advisable. The travel desk is pretty good at arranging for local transport and even outstation drops/returns. From the airport - well it takes atleast an hour so definitely need some sort of airport pick-up.

In summary : Pretty good stay if you know what you want.

I am writing from the hotel.
So it is as real time as possible.
I had heard of Ginger brand in India.
This one is true to its perception.

Clean. Professional. Cold.
What ever you have in the hotel. Is very God.
What ever is missing. You miss it very hard unless you walk in with eyes open.
Location: Very cut off. Could be great for writers or honeymooners.
:)
But for a mid-aged businessman like me; it was isolated.
They do provide vehicle help for going to the market for small things like re-charging the mobile, ATM visits etc.

In-room service for food is limited to few items.
But the lone lobby level restaurant is promising. The bufet lloks good.

Write more after two days.

Cheers

Room Tip: Great value if are there on days lighter. I checked in on a full day. So am paying more. Book earl...
