Better upkeep required

The rooms was comfortable but the phone did not work in the room. The TV too wasn't working and i got the technician to come in and fix it. Housekeeping needs to do a thorough check to ensure gadgets are working in the room to avoid inconvenience to the customer.

Stayed 1 night in Feb 2018

4/5 Good

Basically the hotel is very near to IIT Madras.

The stay at the Hotel was very pleasing. But only one problem I faced was regarding room service. When Buffet time is going on the room service is not given. I will suggest that parallelly the room service should be on. Recently I faced the same. I wanted snack to have but the room service refused to give accept coffee. Rest every thing was fine.

Pros: Hotel is every near/behind IIT Madras.

Cons: Majority Autos/OLA/UBER are not aware about your address and even if told they are not ready to accept the passenger. Now two to three times visited,

Stayed 3 nights in Jul 2017

5/5 Excellent

Great staff, 5 star breakfast/supper buffet

Wonderful, cheerful, satisfying, comfortable, happy are all words to describe my stay at the hotel. The staff went out of their way to insure my comfort and satisfaction. The food served at both the breakfast and supper buffet was 5 star, the best of south Indian cuisine. The wait staff at the buffet were also 5 star, constantly observing and answering your need before it was voiced. The front desk personnel were always friendly and smiling even though they and I could not communicate properly at times. The room was comfortable, cool and had a wonderful view of the city. Housekeeping was on a daily basis and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful at every turn, trying their best to make me happy and comfortable. All things considered, I would not hesitate to stay at the Ginger Hotel at Tidel Park again. My 24 days there were filled with happiness and satisfaction.

Pros: STAFF, STAFF, STAFF and more STAFF. They make the hotel a joy to stay in.

Cons: For the money spent, things are just fine.

Location: Very close to many attractions, temples, business', IIT Madras and Gunidy National Park.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Room comfort
Small. Bad room service

The whole hotel is just one floor of the research park. Power kept going off and the wi-fi was flaky at best. Stay tried their best to help but there experience was not good especially considering there price. The room was small. Window was tiny and the room service was OK at best. The towels were not soft and they gave just one towel?!
