Stayed in Ginger Hotel, Panaji, Goa between Sept 19 & 22, 2013.
While there is no dearth of stay options in Goa, commuting is an issue to be considered.
I had a conference in the Central Library, Panaji and Ginger Hotels suited best, simply because it was a hop-skip-and-jump away.
While Ginger website offered a discounted rate, Yatra.com offered a more attractive deal and I booked through Yatra.
Ginger, Panaji is besides the Kadamba Bus Station and is easily reached from the airport about 32 kms away. Fixed fare Taxis are easily available in the airport.
Check in was a breeze. While the access card was being prepared, the free Wi-fi password was sent as text message.
The room is very compact, has a Double Bed, a work table, Window AC, LCD TV with Tata Sky connection, Mini Fridge, Kettle with disposable paper cups and coffee/tea sachets. The toilet is functional.
There is a Cafe Coffee Day that works round the clock !!!
The restaurant in the hotel appears to be outsourced. The lunch fare was uninspiring.
Ginger's location is very convenient. Taxis and bus are easily available. A short walk across the Pato Foot bridge takes us to the Church Square, 18th June Road and MG Road - the hub of shopping activity.
The TV Remote in my room did not work and my complaint over phone and in person did not elicit any action. Till I checked out it was not set right.
The Wi-fi in the room was also spotty.
The breakfast was a let down - both in taste and content. The charge of Rs. 170 is a rip-off. Best to have food outside.
Check out was also without any issues.
For the cost and location, Ginger is a sure bet. However if one is looking for a memorable experience, choose a different hotel.
