"Great service, clean and comfortable rooms, would stay again!"
We stayed in Bhubaneswar's Ginger Hotel in early December, and it was a great experience. The room was clean and convenient, included a refrigerator and working A/C, and transportation (either through the hotel or by autorickshaw) was extremely convenient. The Ginger is within easy walking distance of several good restaurants and a couple of nightclubs. We did have trouble using the in-house internet, as we didn't have a mobile phone -- without a working mobile phone number, the hotel's internet service is unavailable, which was a disappointment -- but we found two internet cafes within walking distance, so that wasn't a problem. The staff were excellent, extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. Also, there was a hotel doctor on call when my husband tripped and sprained his arm, so we didn't have to visit a clinic or hospital. The restaurant staff were very pleasant, but we didn't eat there because it is a buffet... there are good restaurants nearby, and Bhubaneswar has a lot of great restaurants all over town, so we usually ate wherever we found ourselves during the day. We did start every morning at the Cafe Coffee Day in the lobby, which was very nice. There is an ATM on the premises as well, which was quite convenient. One issue: our room was just off the main atrium, so sounds from the lobby echoed a bit... I imagine rooms further down the halls would be quieter, but it didn't bother us enough to be a problem. I would definitely stay here again!
