Ginger Hotel - Individual ratings and reviews:
AMRIT from GUWAHATI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 03 Jan 2014
Location is not great for people travelling for Pleasure and holidays. It is quite distant from beaches and market. Also I found service to be very slow.
House service kept the same wet towel in room after cleaning which is not expected in any good hotel. The food quality was good. Overall I wouldn't recommend this hotel to people going GOA on holidays.
SANDESH from SHOLAPUR, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 06 Mar 2013
The hotel is situated in good place, but the rooms are filled with lot of things which are not expected with the reputation of Ginger. The Hotel rooms feel more like hospital rooms, and the atmosphere is not like where you feel like Goa.
CHRISTOPHER from MUMBAI(BOMBAY), India recommends this hotel - Posted: 09 Mar 2012
Ginger , Goa standard has gone to dogs.
I spotted a rat at the restaurant while having breakfast.
Could not take my evening tea at their restaurant as the place was littered with flies, some dead others struggling .
There is no hot water in the rooms on the tap after 5pm.
The ac makes a lot of noise.
The staff is unconcerned about your complaints and can do little to help you.

Hotel is far away from the airport but near by the bus stand the location was good,the rooms are good and clean they are having good food. The services are also good, staffs are co-operativ. Only the thing is they are not having any idea about packages, but yes the hotel and the location was good and this hotel is good for family as well as business trip.
VIPUL from AHMEDABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 26 Aug 2011
I had planned my travel to Goa for 3 nights start from 19th Aug at Fortune Regina but lateron i realize that there is good oppurtunity to live another night as there was a holiday to my kids even on 18th Aug; immediately i planned to book a more one night. Instead of adding a night to Fortune Regina i preferred to experience Hotel Ginger and also fulfil wish of my elder son to live in Panji. I had good feeling for Ginger because of TATA Enterprise! And it became really pleasent when we entered in the gate of Hotel Ginger; Very good look from outer side, big space for parking and very convinincing staff at reception! According to charges the environment of hotel is so far good. Next day morning, when we decided to take a round nearby, the travel desk manager has suggest us to take a bus route to move for our said purpose. How honest he was!! And really main bus stop is just 5 min walk away from Ginger.
Oh, i missed to mention the quality of food served at Ginger; Extra ordinarry, fabulous, tasty...!!
My next trip for Goa will be in two years and surely i will keep at least 3 nights to saty at Ginger.
DILIP from MUMBAI(BOMBAY), India recommends this hotel - Posted: 24 Aug 2011
Rooms were having TV with Tata sky, but most watched/Popular channels were not available. e g Zee marathi, sports channels, News channels , we could not see the final test match at all. Being a tata enterprises, this should be mmediately changed. Viewers/customers to be given choice. customer who are staying more than 3 days may not consider.

V K from GHAZIABAD, India does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 12 Apr 2011
The hotel is at a very a convenient place. You can reach the hotel very easily. It is very near to River Mandvi. Market is also very near.
However the room service is very very poor. The staff is also very rude.Although I had booked the hotel for one night ,I had extended my stay by another night. While going for visit in the morning I had asked the reception to get my room cleaned but we found the room in the same position as we left in the morning. On the complaint the house keeping staff came after my repeated reminders. This was not at all expected from a hotel having a brand name of Tatas.
They have provided a tea maker in the room. They had kept 5-6 nos of tea bags, 5 nos coffee pouches , 5 nos of amul dairy whitner pouches but only 2 nos of suger pouches which were consumed on in the morning. The next morning when I demanded suger pouches at the reception they bluntly refused saying that tea kits are provided only once. I had to check out the room even without a cup of tea.
My suggesion is such terms and conditions must be displyed in the hotel site so that every one should know it at the time of booking. Surprisingly they don't provide room service. Only you can get coffee from Cafe Coffee Day.
There was no entertainment programe on the TV because they have not subscribed for any entertainment channel. Only a few news channels.
This was a poorest experience I have ever had in any of the hotels I have have stayed even in the lower category hotel.
AJAY from Nurpur, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 10 Mar 2011

PAVAN KADKOL from city, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 07 Jun 2010
As we reached Goa, Ginger is very easy to locate being in the art of Panjim city.
No bell boys!!! but they provide us with the trolleys to carry our luggage''Help yourselfes"!!!!.Really agood hotel to stay.

MANISH from PANCHKULA, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 05 Apr 2010
The Ginger Hotel, Panjim is ideally located in the heart of Panjim city centre just a minute away from the Panjim Bus Stand. Its 12 kms approx from Karmali railway station. It is situated just walking distance from the mandovi river which has a panoramic view of the entire panjim city.
The Front desk:
The front desk staff was very helpfull.We reached the hotel around 8.30 in the morning and though our checkin time was 12.00 P.M we were offered a room around 9.30 though the hotel was full.The staff was very courteous and helpful.
The room was tastefully decorated and had all the amenities that was promised at the time of the booking.
Our package consisted of complimentary breakfast but the quality of food was not upto the mark. Moreover the menu was not set properly . The best thing was that the hotel had a cafe coffee day outlet for the hardcore coffee drinkers.
The hotel is a very good option for the tourists who likes to stay near city centre.
VICTOR from gurgoan, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 18 Feb 2010
The hotel is far away from the airport, The staff are very good and co-operative, in and around there are market place but we have to go far away, even for the scenarios and also for the beaches, I defiantly recommend the hotel to my family and my friends, because of the service.
MR. V.P. from SURAT, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 17 Feb 2010
The hotel is near the railway station, location wise it is good hotel, its a family hotel. The 2 things which I like the best in the hotel are the reasonable rates & 3star Category services provided in the hotel. Overall I would rate 5/5 for this hotel.
NARAYANAN from BENGALOORU(BANGALORE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 05 Feb 2010
The Hotel was excellent, neat and clean surroundings. The hotel is very well located in the heart of Panjim.

DEEPAK from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 16 Dec 2009
The hotel is great for a night or two stay in Goa if you are looking for trips and cruises.
All trips start at a 5 min walk and cruises at 10 min walk.
Nearest beach Miramar is 4.5 KMs away. Very clean. and excellent room.
You dont get a waiter to carry your lugage but the lift is rt across the reception and so its no issue at all atleast for the young.
CLAUSE from Goa, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 02 Dec 2009
Rooms were pretty good for the price you pay. Staff was also courteous. The hotel can take care of a few things.
- Room maintenance was bad. Cobwebs on the ceiling. When you ask to tidy room, nothing was done.
- Refrigerator didn't work. It was replaced. 2nd refrigerator failed again in a few hours.
- Mosquitoes and flies in the lobby.
- Quite a cumbersome procedure to get WI FI card.
- Soap was missing in room. Was not kept after reminding.
MR. JOSE from BENGALOORU(BANGALORE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 25 Nov 2009
Location: I stayed in this hotel for two nights. The hotel is very well located in the heart of Panjim. It is an ideal place for a couple of days stay for business travelers.
Room: The room is very clean and beyond this is not required at all. There is tea/coffee maker with the necessary accompaniments. It is really value for money.
Breakfast: The buffet which is included in the tariff is reasonably okay. There is also a buffet dinner for which one has to pay. It is also okay for Rs.202, but not great at all. One can say it is a workable dinner.
Parking: There is enough parking space available for business travelers as well as tourists.
Overall it was a good experience in staying in the Ginger
P K from mathura, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 22 Nov 2009
The Hotel experience was excellent. Neat and clean surroundings. The hotel does not provide services as it�s a Help Your Self that is you have to get things your own self. But it�s easy to get anything effortlessly. The staff is good and prompt in all respects.
Room was comfortable provided with AC, Fridge, etc
You will get tea and coffee sachet and kettle in the room.
Water bottle you can get from the water bottle stand near to your room (it�s free).
OVER ALL EXPERIENCE:
The hotel is true value for money and is an excellent option for people looking for budget accommodation with 3 star rating.
MEHUL from AHMEDABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 06 Nov 2009
Our experience at Ginger Goa has been an excellent one. The hotel has many advantages like, it is located at the heart of the Panjim city, still it does not give you any feeling of being inside the city. We could easily get taxi, bus for local site seeing or other purposes. The other boon is the complimentary breakfast, which we enjoyed daily. I found Ginger as the best hotel for my family. I would certainly recommend this hotel to the traveler who is visiting Goa.
SAMIR from MUMBAI(BOMBAY), India recommends this hotel - Posted: 28 Oct 2009
The hotel is close to the Panaji bus stand and the room rate is reasonable. The rooms are clean and fresh. Great for a short stay or business visit. Mostly self service, but the staff is very friendly and always ready to assist. In the evenings the place has a deserted look but I reckon is still quite safe. Breakfast is a simple fare, and can be crowded during season time - have breakfast early! There is a Cafe Coffee Day counter, a necessities/ snacks counter at the reception, a book store, a travel counter at basement level. At every floor there is a clothes ironing & mineral water station. I will probably stay in this hotel every time I visit Panaji.
JEEVITHESH from auckland, New does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 08 Oct 2009
I had booked the hotel thinking it as a 3 star hotel and sadly it wasn't to those expectations. Though the hotel is located in central panaji, the road in front of it was inundated with water and was in a messy state. I would have expected a 3star hotel to at least have a small stretch of road leading to it to be properly done.
Anyway, when i arrived at the reception after having walked through the water, the staff said that my room hasn't been booked and they took nearly an hour to sort out the things and allot me a room. The double room was reasonable, but the bathroom was ordinary. The re was complimentary water and tea/coffee available, but the glass cups weren't clean and there was lipstick mark on some of those glasses, suggesting that it wasn't cleaned at all.
The house keeping was horrible. I had to call them twice for my room to be cleaned up. The boy didn't change the bed spread or the duvet saying they won't change it if it is the same customer staying the 2nd night at the hotel. This was ludicrous!! He didn't change/clean those glasses and was about to go, before I confronted him.
The restaurant downstairs has few options during breakfast or dinner as they do buffet with less items on it. Luckily you have a coffee day within the hotel.
Overall for a 3 star I would definitely give this hotel a miss in the future. I expected a better service and options from the Tata group hotels.
MAHADEV from MUMBAI(BOMBAY), India recommends this hotel - Posted: 15 Jun 2009
This hotel is very close to panajim bus stand.5 minute walk from bus stand. quality of food is good although some time spicy.You have choices of Caffe day or restaurant. Travel desk is ok.Overall room quality is really good.Though little cramp, rooms are having excellent colourful walls and matching window curtains.
Overall pleasant stay and would definately visit another ginger property in near future.
JAGANNATHAN from PUNE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 31 Mar 2009
I reached very early 6.30 am, they managed to give me the room in 2 hours time, but to check in early they asked me to pay 50% from their regular tariff, which was very disappointment for me. In the shower when i try to get regulate the hot water there was very big variation in the temperature which has irritated me during bath, both for me and my wife. Room and other house keeping was excellent. This hotel is mainly focused for customer who come on official visit, for customer with family still lot of improvement to be made.
ABHINAV from MUMBAI(BOMBAY), India recommends this hotel - Posted: 27 Feb 2009
The hotel is located next to panaji bus stand and is great value for money. Apart from some minor power cuts for 5-10 mins, our stay of 2 days in the hotel was excellent. Rooms were clean and tidy with all basic comforts one can possibly think of. Being a budget hotel, there is no room service but the restaurant is really good for those looking for no frills food. Though the hotel is away from the beaches it does not matter as in Goa transport options are plenty.
SATISH from GHAZIABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 26 Feb 2009
Everything was fine except few things like, check in took time, we requested for interconnecting rooms which were provided to us but there was no locking system, so there was no use. Rest all were excellent.
LEELARAM from PUNE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 18 Feb 2009
It is very easy to reach hotel as landmarks are good like passport office and KTC terminus, we did not have any difficulty to reach as hotel itself is a landmark.
The Hotel has no covered parking but has space to park about five to six cars, just in front of its entrance.
This hotel is located 30 Kms from Madgaon railway station or say 40 minutes drive and just 100 meters from Panjim bus stand. Being located at center of Goa it is convenient to travel north, central and south Goa
The Front desk:
The staffs were reasonably helpful. Though check-in timings were 12:00 noon, front desk guys allowed check-in at 8:25 Am.
Room was very nice, it has card access system, nicely done with Double bed, mini fridge, work table, A/c, Wall TV, night lamp, coffee/tea maker, dressing mirror and cupboard.
Food & Room Service:
Hotel has restaurant at ground floor which they given to operate to some caterer, it has buffet breakfast systems but not for lunch and diner, breakfast was very costly as per the quality is concern. Room service was good.
Travel Desk: Hotel also has travel desk operated by S K tours & travels, which helps renting bike/car or buses for site seeing on daily basis at nominal costs.
It was nice stay at this place .On the whole, the hotel is a very good option for the budget traveller especially if it�s for short trip.
NISHU from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 17 Feb 2009
The stay at Ginger Hotel, Goa is value for money. The rooms as well as bathrooms are neat and clean with all modern amenities like Tea / Coffee maker, LCD TV, modern furniture etc. The dining options are limited but there is a Cafe Coffee Day and one can order from the near by eating joints. The staff was courteous and helpful. The check in and check-out procedures took longer than required, but on the whole the stay was pleasant.
ANUJ from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 16 Feb 2009
The hotel was good and the room was comfortable for a single person. The housekeeping and the staff service was quite good. The restaurant was plain and simple and the food was average. The hotel does not have the internet facility which disappointed me. It was business Trip and overall a decent place to stay.
ANUP from BENGALOORU(BANGALORE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 09 Feb 2009
The rooms were spacious and well lit. The room decor is soothing. Dining Options are limited as they have buffet breakfast only while for the dinner and lunch there is al a carte with very limited options. This hotel is a few meters from the Panjim Bus station and if one is on business travel, this hotel is highly recommended. For tourists it is better to stay by the beach.
AMIT KUMAR from GHAZIABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 20 Oct 2008
I always heard its a nice hotel by Tata Group ,but never had any chance to stay till that date. As I booked a room in Ginger,I got all cooperations from hotel staffs as during my train journey while reaching to Goa, I requested them to arrange a taxi as I had viral fever. Train arrived 2 hours late at Madgaon but I found taxi driver waiting for me and I reached hotel around 11pm.When I got key less entry card to room ,I was amazed to see all room's accommodations n its facilities , so clean ,and looking so beautiful as I am in any five star hotel that too in so cheapest price around 1500/-Rs in Panjim ,Goa. It was really surprising place to me as I traveled almost every big cities and tourist places but in such cheap price and so much ultra modern facility ,its great. One more thing hotel don't offer room service because they feel our food's smell can pollute room so they have good buffet dining hall beside reception, and Coffee Cafe day and book stall is there for good book lovers ,Travel desk is there to assist passenger to opt their local tour or dropping to airport or railway station. I want to give Ginger 10 out of ten .I recommend to others to take pleasure to stay here few times for sure.
VIJAYA KRISHNA from HYDERABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 15 Oct 2008
The concept of "Help yourselves" is very good. Availability of trolleys for luggage is good. There is no room-service. Have to go to the in house restaurant. The dining options in the restaurant is also limited. There is time limitations also for food availability at the cafeteria. I guess all these measures are in place for ensuring smart price for you. This is similar to no-frills budget airlines. One problem I faced in Ginger Goa is the lunch timings published in the booklet in the room was not followed in the restaurant. Room freshener wasn't used in the common areas. Corridors had a foul smell. Liquid soap and shower cap are made available as part of toiletry. Liquid soap without loofah isn't a good wash. I would appreciate availability of bar soap, shampoo and tooth brush and paste. The tile work in the bathroom is botched up. The tiles aren't neatly fitted. The bathroom shape is also not a neat rectangle. The builder has not done a good job here. Though these are minor aesthetic issues, I'm bringing these up here because these could have been taken care of without effective cost increase and new hotels Ginger would come up with won't have the same problem. There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom and it was not what I would call spick and span. We have box type ACs rather than split ACs/centralized ACs in the rooms. There is no window that you could open to let fresh air in if you ever want to. Though I appreciate the 'smart hotel' concept, you can take care of some of the points mentioned above without any cost increase and stay smarter.
