Pros: 1. Right in the heart of Old Delhi next to the Red Fort (Red Fort is at 5 mins walk) 2. Close by to the main market, gurudwara, chandani chowk 3. Lots of eating options close by – Parathe wali galli, Jalebiwala, etc 4. Metro station is 10 mins walk which keeps you well connected to various places 5.... More

If you are the least bit high maintenance, this hotel is not for you. However, if you are looking for a no-frills cheap hotel, walking distance to some famous sites (Red Fort, Jama Masjid Mosque, etc), clean, with food that won't make you sick - this is the place for you. The staff are very responsive to email, and arranged... More

I have stayed a few times in Tara Palace with my wife and we love the place. Staff is friendly and the food is really nice. Some people might find the busy old town too much of a shock, especially first time visiting India, but I highly recommend staying here. Both Jama Masjid and Red Fort are just a short... More

This is a quirky little hotel that is ideal for exploring Old Delhi and Chadni Chowk. Small and basic but we found it clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. Located down an alley near the cycle market it is hard to find and not your usual tourist accommodation. we loved the fact that we could step out of... More

I love the location in old Delhi but it's not for everyone. Its the only hotel that I will stay in Delhi. One... More

Date of Stay: 13 March - 15 March 2014 A bit about us: We are a 57 year old "Mum" and 34 year old "Daughter" who regularly travel together. This was our first visit to India - a whirlwind four week trip taking in Delhi, Rajasthan, Agra, Varanasi and Kolkata. We did a LOT of research both online and via... More

As others have said, this hotel is in the heart of Old Delhi opposite the Red Fort and the entrance is not easy to find. However we were met at Delhi International Airport on our arrival by a representative from the hotel who ordered a car which took us to the door free of charge (we paid 800Rs for an... More

Hotel entrance is down a side street right in the heart of Old Delhi. Room was basic but served its purpose. TV and satellite but remotes did not work. When using room service for drinks be sure to have the correct money as they never have change. Need to let shower run for a good 10 mins before you get... More

When I arrived first, 2am and in India for the first time, I did wonder what on earth had I done! But must admit freely the hotel was adequate with clean fresh smelling rooms and very friendly staff. I would definitely go back! Great for access to Old Delhi a real experience! Thank you

Anything more than 1-2 days may not be a good idea here. Very clumsy entrance which is quite hard to find. I reached at about 11pm and kept on searching for the entrance for half-an-hour even though I was within 5 minutes walk from there. Moreover the locality seemed very unsafe at night. Sorry but for me this hotel will... More
