A rip off, unfriendly, untrustworthy, unwelcoming, lacking of any charm place to stay. We had booked a pick up from the airport which was not there when we arrived. There was no record of our booking even though I had emailed and called several times to confirm. When we got a cheaper pre-paid taxi to the hotel we had a... More

Upon arrival on January 1st all the staff could offer two people was a small room with no window - at 900 rupees. Asking for a room with a windomw the next day just gave us a cold shoulder and upon checking out we had to haggle for a refund of the deposit paid for the second night.

We booked a room at 400 rupees by internet because our plane arrived at night in Delhi and we wanted to make sure we had a room. When we arrived, the owner insisted to make us pay the taxi. Just after he announced that he only had a room with AC, for 1400 rupees ! We told him we had... More

Booked a room with them weeks before, with several emails between us, but when we arrived they didn't have a record of us and our room. But we were able to check into a double room on the third floor for 1000rs - a/c, fan, TV, double bed, clean towels and toilet paper, new bathroom which was very nice and... More

Having left the Rak International we moved into the Vivek hotel on the Main bazaar. We were shown various rooms of various prices on the first floor. We were shown cheaper rooms on higher floors but went for a nice room with A/C. All of the rooms seemed recently renovated and had clean bathrooms. In fact this was one of... More

The a/c rooms are nice and the food decent and cheap. There are minimal creepy-crawlies, which is a bonus in backpacker Old Delhi. It's a good location near the train station and the market. However, we don't trust the owners. They seem out to make a buck rather than take care of customers. We booked through their website, including a... More

We stayed at the Vivek hotel in Pahar Ganj in November last. We chose it because we wanted to be in the middle of the busy bazaar area to experience the atmosphere of Delhi. All I can say really is avoid it unless really desperate. We emailed our booking and had requested an airport pick up which they claimed to... More
