Recently visited Guwahati on a business trip and decided to try out Ginger as I am a fan of the Ginger concept and have stayed in their Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Bangalore hotels. While I stayed in Gateway Grandeur last time, this time I had little extra time to kill and I thought let me try Ginger as I am getting it at 60% the rate of the other hotel. Here is my review:
- Great view from the room of the green fields and distant hills. Calming effect on you after a busy day. Nice to stroll around.
- Typical and efficient Ginger room and bathroom with all minimal amenities.
- Food was surprisingly good in this Ginger (both the set meal they gave for dinner and the breakfast)
- Almost the same time to go to airport as from the main city.
- The AC takes time to cool. One needs to use the fan in tandem to feel comfortable.
- The bathroom tiles were slippery.
- The towels were well worn, rough and uncomfortable.
- Limited channels on TV. No Times Now. No Arnab Goswami and that too in Assam. Unacceptable. Tata's should not have their strained relationship with TOI group affecting their guest choices.
- No Wireless for the whole of day I stayed. Apparently their server was down. On top of it their own Tata Photon services are not available in Assam. I felt "withdrawal symptom" during the time I stayed there without internet.
- Pathetic Gym. There is just one cycle and one Treadmill. The Treadmill is in repair. The cycle looks old and worn. No TV. It was a disgrace of a gym.
Overall verdict. Stay when you have additional time to travel to the outskirts where Ginger is located and you are on a limited budget. Don't stay if you want to step out in the evening for shopping, restaurants or if you want facilities like Gym etc.
