“No words to describe this horrible place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2010

I really have no words to describe this place that they called a hotel. The staff were not friendly or helpful at all. The room vas so dull with no window, and dirty. Luckily we had brought with us our sheets, pillowcases, and towels because theirs were extremely dirty; they used to be white and they had stains on them. There is no hot water 24 hrs. Everytime you need to take a shower you have to call them to turn it on. The AC did not work. We could not sleep well because of the noise. we could hear everything going on outside the room. The bathroom was another story. No bathtub or shower curtain. Everytime you'd take a shower the whole bathroom gets wet and water would go into the room because the clogged drain. In addition to that, the sink leeks and everytime you wash your hands your legs get washed for free. If you plan to take with you some clothes to hang, think of short items only because you will only have 1/2 a wardrobe with mothballs in it to make your clothes stink.
The guy that takes care of taxi and trip services is very shady. If you ever decide to take this hotel be very careful of that guy; he will rip you off. We asked him how much it would cost us to see the light and sound show at the red fort and he gave us a price that was double the actual price + taxi service that was nothing close to reality.
The area where the hotel is is one of the worse areas in delhi. You would not feel safe to walk there at all.
One of the worse experiences of my life.

I stayed at Hotel Legend International during my visit to delhi in january. I had 3 options in mind but i chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Railway Station and moreover, a friend had also recommended.
I got in touch over internet and they booked me for 2 nights. The hotel was clean and tidy and the room was also clean.
The staff is very helpful and was always ready to serve with a smile.
I have been to many budget hotels and i can surely say that Hotel Legend is among the best.

The rooms are pretty clean and tidy. Hotel Manager was very courteous and helpful. HE speaks well, but wont provide any concessions.

Food is pretty good, Please dont try veg pakoras, they are the worst. Instead try chicken Kadai, Its yummy.

Hotel Location is not that good, Its a dirty place around, and beware of Saloons, They are used as money extracting shops by using dark gals in the name of massage.

Situated in a very busy hotel street, the hotel could be OK if the cleanliness would be improved.
Don't choose a room on top floor because there is a restaurant on the floor above it and they are moving furniture most of the night.
There are telephones for the staff on every floor and these keep ringing most of the night which is very disturbing.

The hotel is located in the Pahar Ganj district of Delhi, close to the railway station. If you have never been to India before, you may be shocked initially at the area around the hotel BUT it is central (max 10 mins to Connaught Place by Tuk-Tuk) and full of life 24 hours a day. We went out and about in the district and felt safe whilst taking the usual precautions you would take in any big city.
The hotel staff are friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. It is popular with travellers on a budget (we chose it for our business base because we did not want to be in a faceless hotel that could be anywhere in the world, set in a clinical environment).
If you are prepared to take it easy and not expect everything to happen quickly, and you are happy with your room not being serviced during your stay, I would highly recommend this hotel. Get into the Indian spirit and you will enjoy it.
For value for money it is fantastic! £15/US $24 a night for B & B is a great price.

Go native: go to the Legend Hotel International.

I have no clue how nice this hotel is, as we never got there. After arriving in Delhi after about two days of flying from the west coast of the USA, we find out that they had given away our reservation. Maybe in British/Indian English, the word "reservation" has a different meaning, but they didn't seem to have a problem with giving out room away (and this was after pre-paying on Expedia, too!). It had been very foggy in the city, so many flights were canceled, which means hotels were filled throughout the city and we couldn't get a room anywhere. So if your idea of a great way to start a vacation is being stranded in a foreign country without a hotel, this is your place.

I stayed here on and off for a week and a half on my way home to Australia. I didnt really have a clear travel plan and when I arrived I got chatting to the travel agent in the lobby, Hariom. He was able to organise day trips around Delhi, a 3 night trip to Agra and Jaipur, and a 2 night trip to Haridwar and Rishikesh. Great value and great service. I had an excellent driver called Than and he really looked after me, especially being a solo female traveller I felt very safe and secure. He was always looking out for me, making sure I didnt get harassed, organising guides for me or taking me off the tourist trail for budget shopping. He really made my stay much easier and hassle-free.
The hotel itself I found to be reasonable for budget travelling, the rooftop "restaurant" looks pretty terrible but I ate an Indian breakfast up there once and it was delicious. Hotel staff are friendly. Unlike other reports on here, the toilets do flush, you just need to pull the lever towards you, not down! And hot water you sometimes have to let it run for a bit. Sheets didnt always look clean but the staff are happy to change them if they're not. Area is not fantastic but you can get a tuk tuk or one of Hariom's drivers to take you into Connaught place which is only 5 mins away and has everything you need. A good budget hotel.
