This hotel is best avoidable, even for budget travellers. There is only one dining option downstairs , with very limited fare, and the room i stayed in had a leaking central AC. I had to wake up at 2amm in the morning to move to another room.

My family stayed at the ginger hotel in taramani in november. NOt the best location and is very difficult to locate with the attitude of the chennai auto drivers. But the view of lush gren campus of IIT is fantastic.

We stayed at Ginger Vadapalani for 4 nights from december 9 to 13. The entire experience was extremely pleasant.
