Stayed there last year when Delhi was the first stop on the India trip and I wanted to make sure that we had a reservation somewhere before we arrived. The rooms were OK, not splendid (relatively clean, though). Substantially overpriced, however, compared to those in hotels on the same street (including those with larger, nicer, cleaner, rooms). We were there... More

Stayed at the Grand for one night on our way through Delhi to Udaipur. Have stayed here before for longer stays. Our room was comfortable and clean, check-in was quick and easy, and Wi-Fi is available. The roof-top restaurant offeres an expansive breakfast. If you've never traveled in Asia the neighborhood can be disconcerting at first. But the Grand is... More

Good hotel in a nice area, near metro station and interesting spots. Especially having breakfast at the roof top in the morning is really nice.

I enjoyed my 3 day stay here. Room service was very kind, food was excellent and the room was clean. It's centrally located and in an interesting area of Delhi. Only negative is that I had constant trouble with Internet (they gave me my fee back).

An excellent choice near New Delhi Station. We first stayed one night in room 402 at the beginning of our tour of India. Very clean, large and comfortable room. Very good breakfast. At the end of our tour of India, we first stayed one night at Jyoti Mahal Guest House which we left because it was dirty and we went... More

We had a semi deluxe room; we had booked it on their website a month in advance. We arrived late at night and it took a while for them to find our booking confirmation. The room wasn't too bad, by no means spotless, the usual peeling paint etc but it was pretty clean compared to some of the dives we... More

Ok, when you get there, you are, at first sight of the neighborhood, quite...frightened. Don't be: get off your car, make it through the crowd, the dirt, the unpleasant smells, the COWS, the motorcycles and the rickshaws and let the doorman open the door of a peaceful all-in-white-marble lobby. Service is efficient (god they are ALWAYS cleaning for real!), rooms... More

I made a reservation weeks before arriving in Delhi and specifically asked for a driver to pick me up because it was my first time in India. They sent me a confirmation with booking and pick up driver but upon arrival on the airport nobody was there.

This is the best and also the most popular hotel in the area. The main reason lead us to book there in the first place is so we can catch the early train to Agra, and late train back from Jaipur. Other than that location does not matter so much as Delhi's landmarks are quite spreadout, you would need to... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting your comments on tripadvisor and bringing the fact iout to every one that we are the most popular hotel in the area whereas some of the old hotels in the area boast themselves to be the best by mentioning it on the trip advisor management response in attempt to misguide the other travelers.

dirty, shaky, shady and old.... absolutely inadequate for most travellers. perhaps ok for some very low budget low demand backpackers and some locals.... we left it on the second day to find another hotel and fortunately Incredible India guys helped us greatly with rearranging hotels for us in different cities. It was especially great to have them help us in... More

Dear Guest, We firmly believe the importance of the guests comment posted on tripadvisor because that’s how we get to know our good & bad qualities and accordingly either we put in more efforts in improving ourselves or we appreciate and encourage the staff to keep up the services in every possible way.
