Great rooms all designed differently. TAke the time to watch delhis pigeon flying competition from the Roof top at sunset- makes for a good sundowner. Good places to enjoy typical local dhabba food nearby. A place that has its regular flow.

Though the decor of the hotel and bedrooms does the trick, a bit of TLC is urgently needed. Of course, this review is based on my OWN bedroom experience. Toilet seat old and dirty as all the other amenities in the bathroom. Though the sheets are washed, stains might have taken its best. Slept with a t-shirt around my pillow.... More

We landed in Delhi in the early hours and had expected an airport pickup, as offered in the hotel booking. Unfortunately for us no one appeared to take us to Jyoti Mahal and we had to hail a cab. The cab driver wasn't too sure where he was going but was hindered by the fact that the roads around the... More

Lovely, quiet hotel with really helpful staff - in a delightful area of Delhi, with bustling side streets and interesting street food. We arrived earlier than our checking in time, and the staff were really accommodating - which after a long flight we were appreciative of. The rooms were clean, large - a bit shabby chic, but we really enjoyed... More

Delhi is not cheap as it's a major city, that said Jyoti Mahal is a hotel that I keep returning back to, why? Simple, it's clean, the team are attentive, it's safe, the butter chicken is to die for, the location is perfect and it is family run. The family take such pride with the hotel and ensure all their... More

The Jyoti Mahal is a charming property and certainly stands out as unique in the Paharganj area due to its haveli style. The rooms were spacious and the service excellent. The food menu is diverse and good quality. Suggested improvements include providing a safe and find a way to stop water from the shower going everywhere.
