Ginger Goa
Ranked #8 of 48 Hotels in Panjim
Reviewed September 27, 2013

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.

Clean, hygienic, executive class rooms. What i particularly liked was the ironing board at the end of the corridor for convenience.
Breakfast was ordinary, but the staff at the restaurant were genuinely warm and concerned.
I went for a business meet and we used the conference hall facilities too. Better than average and good value for money. No view from the windows, and for the few days i was there in the rains, the uncovered sewer just beyond the back end of the hotel made sure that the smell wafted in at all times.
The little cafe coffee day on the lobby was a saviour for the cappucino. Overall good value for money.

Stayed for 2nights / 3days at Hotel Ginger Panaji Goa, As usual Ginger Quality across, same elevation, same service... A decent Place to Stay, Rooms are Neat, Comfortable and courteous, supportive staff..

Writing a review is one of the most tough assignment. Your invitation to write a review on a hotel is very tricky and exciting.

I have selected the hotel Ginger for review. Being a marketing professional and wild life admirer the travel is an integral part and parcel of my life and career. More than three decades of travel has taken me to an exotic star hotels to a make shift place for resting. Of late, the modern technology provides ample information on the net to hunt and select a place of stay. At times the information from net is misleading and dubious. Booked a hotel on net, made tuhe payment, when arrived at the destination, the no sign of the hotel, it was tricky situation to collect the money back.

Last week on business trip i had an opportunity to visit Goa. A place everyone aspires to visit, to admire the palatial churches, immaculate clean picturesque beaches, sea food, liquor and of course the great Goan culture and many other small wonders - motor cycle taxi, motor cycle on hire, and so forth,

When the opportunity knocked to visit Goa, with out a wink i booked the hotel room with Ginger Chain of Hotels. The reason for the selection is the earlier experiences with Ginger at Trivandarum, Indore, Agartala. Ginger Goa was my first time visit. The feeling was good as Ginger operates on standard operational guide lines and this re leaves the anxiety and answers to many question. What to expect and what not to expect with a standard chain of hotels, is well defined.

The Ginger Goa was a great experience by itself. Arrived by car and realized my foot was bleeding which i noticed while walking to porch of the hotel. The security staff at the entrance, rushed inside to return with the first aid kit to and the office staff to my aid. Helped me to wipe the blood and identify the cause. I was moved as it was a voluntary action and gesture.The office staff arranged a vehicle and fixed an appointment with the doctor. I later thanked security person Mr Surdas Narvekar and Ms Rima Suvrana for the excellent hospitality. Such a welcome and reception does not come from training or teaching, it is the culture of the place, people, friends and family, it is the culture from the heart with concern towards guest and persons around you. The Ginger was full of real warmth, air was encouraging to visit again and again. The bleeding was due to the leach bite and subsided after medical treatment.

I feel very homely when i check in at any of the location of Ginger. The primary reason is the anxiety as to how the hotel property would be is melted, as the interior, color choice, service levels, what to expect and what not to expect is picturesque in front of my eyes.

The hotel is provided with the in house restaurant named AULI - As U Like It is the actual nomenclature formation. One can expect a decent vegetarian and non vegetarian food which is simple and nice. The bar is not attached. All my stays with Ginger, was provided with the complementary break fast, which is very simple which is the basic need when you are on job one cannot hog too much. You have an option to request your choice too. The hotel is fully smoke free. The cleaning staff are seen at work which results in mirror polished floors fresh toilets, common area etc.

The hotel also provides ample parking space, a travel desk to take care of your travel needs, a small curio shop. One can enjoy the Tata SKY in the room or do a bit of work out in the gym on the ground floor. You can also conduct more serious business as the hotel provides a conference room for meetings. Cafe Coffee De can serve the Cappichino or other flavor to your business guests.

One can expect a good feeling of returning to home after a hectic days work or pleasure. I have no hesitation to recommend Goa Ginger and of course the complete chain of Ginger Group of Hotels

Stayed there with my family for a week in Feb 2013. Good stay. Good location and food. Staff is supportive and service was good. Can also rent a car at decent pricing from the Travel Desk. Overall, enjoyed my stay thoroughly and will definitely consider the option, whenever I go back to Goa.
