I give first preference to Ginger wherever I travel. I had been to Ginger Goa, Vishakhapatnam, Ahmedabad, Delhi and feel the same facilities and services. I feel homely at Ginger. Particularly their Veg Curry set concept should be adopted by other hotels also as it does not waste food. In other hotels we are unnecessarily have to order the food quantity which we can not consume if we are single. Veg curry set is appropriate quantity for a single person.
Good things 1st:
Great location for work,play & shop!!
Neat comfortable rooms. Good breakfast, great service liked it!! Morning staff very friendly & helpful .
Now the BAD things:
Room 305 has rats in the false ceeling. (Room changed the next day) Night staff should learn to be courteous. Bad laundry service, & expensive. Hotel should keep loud guests in check. No hotel restaurant.
"Excellent Location,Beautiful Rooms and Warmest Hos"
Excellent location with beautiful Architecture all around .
Rooms are well maintained,neat and clean and Under the guidance of Mr. Carlos (Owner) the hospitality is excellent.
I stayed here for 2 nights and the Mr.Carlos was so thoughtful as to give me a Guide book upon reaching the home stay which took me through the history wedged in the place and all around.
I would recommend all to go for this place if you want a Safe ,Clean , and a Owner who is very Trustworthy and friendly .
The lobby of this hotel has an awesome view as do the rooms facing the water. The staff is very attentive, helpful, professional and friendly. The food is excellent. Convenient transportation is provided for a reasonable fee around Goa. The rooms are a little worn and outdated and the shower blows hot and cold. The beach is a little out of the way and not on the sea.
There are two WelcomHeritage properties on the same street, but the hub is the Inn, which is where you have to go to check in and to eat. The Pousada a couple of properties away is the nicer of the two for sleeping. It's quiet and all the rooms radiate off a very nice atrium with some artwork. The rooms all have to be padlocked from the outside when you're out and bolted on the inside when you're in, which worried me a bit in case of an emergency. The padlock key has to be inserted inside the room socket to turn on the power. The furniture and styling is very old and at first glance is a bit off putting, but in fact, it's actually quite quaint. There was 4 poster bed in my Pousada room and a very large bathroom. The room has a desk and chair, but they're small and very uncomfortable. The only other place to sit is on the bed. They provide tea, coffee and free bottled water. For breakfast, you have to go next door to the Inn, where unfortunately, the eating area is outside. You'll thus be sharing your breakfast with 1,000,000,000 flies. They crawl over everything, including the plates, knives and cups waiting to be used and that really, really turned me off. The breakfast food selection isn't great, but it certainly isn't bad.They only have instant coffee though.
There's a distinctly European atmosphere in the state capital of Goa, a remnant from when Portugal ruled the area. Portuguese architecture abounds, with red-tiled roofs and balconied buildings, and the hustle and bustle of Indian cities gives way to a more laid-back atmosphere. The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is a popular attraction, along with the area's famed beaches.
