“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

Ginger Hotels claim to be the best budget hotels in India, and considering there are not many organised chains in this price range, this claim is pretty much true. Ginger hotel is always my first lookup whenever I am looking for a budget hotel within India. The pricing is perfect, suits the needs of an upper middle class family.

Mysore Ginger is quite sought after. And like most of the ginger hotels, you will get rooms available only if you do a booking online using their site. During my first visit to mysore in an off season, I tried getting a room after reaching mysore, but no luck. Hence, the second time I booked a room two weeks in advance.

The hotel is situated in a comparatively off side road in the city center. It is better to look up the location on online maps services before hand if you dont ve a GPS device handy coz otherwise its easy to miss the hotel on a first pass. The entrance to the hotel is bang on the road side without any service road entrance. There is open parking for guests cars within the premises. Going per the theme of self-serve budget hotel (which is also the USP of Ginger hotels), there is no valet parking. The drive by is narrow with cars parked on the side in a single row around the hotel.

The rooms are clean. The hotel neighborhood is empty, so no great view but no bad views either.
The in hotel eatery ( its not a restaurant for sure) provides hygienic buffet, but not the food you would like to have in your vacation. The hotel also has a CCD counter, a travel services agent and a spa service tie up, all these are available at the ground floor reception.

Overall, a great budget hotel, but only a hotel where you would go to sleep and freshen up. Not a hotel where you would like to spend your free time! :)

Pros: Good, clean budget hotel
Cons: Food leaves a lot to be desired

I've stayed in this hotel for 2 days and the location is really good. Although there's no hyped features in this hotel, the service staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. The wifi is slow but works. There's even a free safe zone to keep your bags for a while after you checkout too.

The famous Dosa place Mylari Hotel is just a few meters away too. The zoo and the palace 2-3km away.

Cons
There are not many Hindi entertainment channels on the TataSky subscription in the rooms.

Stayed at this place on a family trip to Mysore, Booked two rooms. Need to help yourself with luggage, nice rooms with fresh linen. coffee maker and mini fridge available in the room. Comfortable beds and neat bathrooms. Lighting in the room is not very appreciable. Breakfast buffet was just okay. A budget hotel with all basic requirements. No luxury options like swimming pool, jaccusi or bath tubs. Front desk is very helpful. Good option for travellers running an average budget. Mysore palace and zoo are not far away from this location.

the hotel fits exactly suggested by many other reviewers. its a budget hotel and comfortable for may be a day or two of stay. We weren't really happy with the food as they had only buffet for the whole day. The room service had very few choices so were forced to take their buffet or fetch outside elsewhere for food.

Its just like a roadside lodge with no facilities at all. Its just neat & hygiene. No soap or shampoo supplied. Not good quality towels. Very small rooms. TV is there in the rooms but not many channels. I don't think I'll be coming back here.

I have stayed at Ginger Mysore on 2 occasions. What strikes me is that it's a complete no nonsense place for a business man who is more interested in closing deals instead of spending time in Jacuzzi and expensive bars...rooms are fresh and linen smells fresh. Bathrooms are nice albeit small (though no complaints since u get what u pay)...Food and Beverage service and quality is a bit patchy but I guess it's the outsourcing that causes it. However i am personally not very choosy ..

The rooms are very small but well maintained and nicely designed. The food court serves bouffet dinner which is cool. Fornt desk is agile and helpful. Hotel is clean and tidy. CCD is open all night hence it is very good that everyone can have a bite at any point of time.
Security is very tight, so stay is very safe.
Tevel desk is ok. We haven't used spa hence don't have any idea.
More or less we njoyed our stay here and will recomend the hotel.

Room Tip: Think rooms all are good enough though little bit small in size.
