Ginger Pondicherry Hotel Puducherry Reviews

India´s answer to bland, uniform hotel chains Feb 12, 2012
It looks like a western modern hotel and is decorated inside in plain white and orange.

, and I imagine all were the same, was like a basic version of a travel lodge for business people. No frills or decoration but it did contain a small fridge, tea/facilities which is not too common in India and a work desk.

The bathroom was small but adequate.

Two health and safety issues concerned me. The tiny lift smelled of burnt plastic so I took to using the stairs which was also the only emergency exit alternative. I was shocked to see that this was also used to store items like old tables and chairs etc. These were stacked at the emergency exit door.

The young staff acted like it was their first day on duty. Customer Service skills required.

They have a small uninviting restaurant which was empty of clients during my 2 night stay. Next to it a small modern snack and coffee bar serving a very limited selection of indian food heated in microwave idea. Not good value.

Basic self service breakfast served by clueless staff.

They also charged me a different rate for each night!I had booked both nights at same time and they said that this was how it worked. Strange.
