I stayed at ginger Pondy for almost a week. I usually prefer staying a Ginger hotels. Reasons include- price, facilities and I assume that i will get all standard services at all the Ginger facilities. But i was disappointed at Ginger Pondy. In my week long stay, one day the housekeeping was done in late evening, the coffee maker was yuck dirty, the towels were yellow and in very bad condition.

We checked in at night and we were offered a room. The hand shower in bathroom was broken and was almost not working. We requested for a change on room in the morning. They gave us another room. We were almost settled in new room that they thold us that some maintenance work is going on so we need to change room again. Disgusting...2 room changes in jus 12 hrs. The ac in the new room was not working, even then we dint complian bcoz we were not in a position to change room again. The second day wen we went down for breakfast, all tables were full with plates and there was nobody to remove the used plates or clean the table. We asked to clean the table and give us a new plates. We waited for more than half an hour, bt nobdy cleaned the tables or gave us new plates. We had to go out aftr 10.30 to hav breakfast outside. Really horrible experience and unexpected from tata group..

Simply put, you get what you pay for. The Ginger is arguably the cheapest hotel in its class, but the services and facilities leave a lot to be desired. No one picks up the phone at the front desk. We had to personally head down and log our complaint (Our flush wasn't working). The toilets are small and cramped. Overall, I would suggest paying a bit extra and staying in one of the guesthouses in the french quarter.

One of the worst hotel in service, person on front desk does not knows how to behave, no service, no HOT Water in rooms.
You make complaint and wait for hours, Suggest my friends to check in at some other place at Pondicherry

Room Tip: Never ever check in to GINGER at Pondicherry..

I loved the room i stayed in, they had a few complementary drinks in the mini refrigerator. Room was neat and extra comfortable. Not very spacious, but well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and large, there was a separate table and chair for work. I didn't get the chance to have a spot of dinner here cos i went out for dinner. Breakfast was nice, although i wouldn't say it was that great cos i only tried the south Indian which gave up quantity for quality. Their Bar was nice and had a great ambiance. I'd stay here again if i went to pondy ;)

One of the worst...Let me correct myself-The worst service ever. Couldnt believe this is a part of TATA. Waited for 4hrs for hot water as the hot water taps arent working. Went down to complain about the terrible service and yet kept us waiting for another hour!!

The welcome was the worst. "You have to check out tomorrow before 12!". Seriously??

This wasnt over. The food was tasteless and worse than roadside food. for the 24hrs we stayed there, we heard atleast 3-4 customers yelling and complain.

Room Tip: Please find another hotel. This does not do justice to the TATA group.

Our expectation from the hotel was modest, but it exceeded those. Professionally managed and attentive staff takes care of a few inadequacies that you may feel in a budget hotel.

There is a resturant and you also have a CCD. Food is decent and not all that bad. Location of the hotel is not that great and the places in the vicinity are not well maintained.

However, considering the rate per night, it is value for money!
