Located just off Main Bazar, behind the Imperial Cinema (tell that to the tuktuk drivers) in crazy Pahar Ganj (older part of Delhi) lies this beautiful Haveli style guest house. I was referred to them sometime last year by a fellow French business traveler. Since, I think I have stayed three times. The rooms a clean, spacious and neat. Ask... More

Having spent about 15 years in & out of Delhi en route to Ladakh for our Kamzang Journeys treks in the Indian Himalaya, I've seen lots of mid-range hotels there. Jyoti Mahal has a unique Rajasthani style, a great price tag, a stylish rooftop restaurant, lovely and clean rooms with Rajasthani furnishings and a great staff. The AC almost always... More

Having stayed in numerous hotels in Delhi during the last 25 years I was delighted to discover The Jyoti Mahal. The hotel is built in traditional Haveli style and oozes charm and beauty. Amazing and eclectic pieces of furniture from Rajasthan adorn the rooms. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Delhi it is an oasis. My room... More

We spent here 3 nights at the end of our vacation and we deffinitely don't recommend this place. Hotel looks much worse than on photos - old, bad conditions, dirty. Neighbourhood is modified in photoshop - in real there are slums - with lots of garbage, homeless dogs and people sleeping on the street just in front of the hotel.... More

Pahar Ganj is not for everyone but we LOVE it. It's a vibrant, busy area in Old Delhi seething with life and experience. Jyoti Mahal is in an ideal location just off Main Bazaar and surprisingly quiet. The lovely big rooms with sitting area and window seats are decorated in traditional Rajasthani style and are very comfortable. The bathroom is... More

Stayed here twice during our passing through Delhi and surrounds. Quaint little guest house in the centre of a bustling bazaar and markets. The staff here are very friendly and accommodating and go out of their way to be of service...at any time night or day. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable, clean but basic. Each one... More

The outstanding feature of the Jyoti Mahal is the friendly staff, who are helpful and obliging yet do not fawn over you or expect constant tipping as we experienced in other Indian hotels. The rooms are comfortable and clean, with very comfortable beds, and the showers are excellent. The rooftop terrace is a great space for relaxing and for good... More

This is the fifth year I have stayed in Jyoti Mahal, Pahar Ganj, whilst passing through Delhi and have always found their booking service efficient, rooms clean and any help needed supplied by the reception staff.  In December and January the rooms can be cold with little natural light but to compensate they have a lovely roof garden restaurant or...

Stayed here for one night passing through. Perfectly adequate for that purpose but wouldnt necessarily stay for too much longer. Well situated. Communal areas were quite open and dirty and quite tired. The food was delicious and the bed was comfortable and clean.
