I can't complain much as I paid only Rs.900 for the room as part of a last minute deal on cleartrip. Area is Paharganj which is close to New Delhi railway station. Area is full of budget hotels. You walk through this road and at least a dozen people will invite you to their hotel.
Since I had a booking here, I checked in and was greeted in the room by one cockroach running from the bed towards the tv. Not bad for a Rs.900/night hotel.
Opened the only window and found a shattered apartment on the other side. A guy in one of the dingy houses became curious and started watching back, so I had to close the window.
Hotel receptionist demanded a printout and not an electronic copy on my smartphone. So, went out to take a printout which cost Rs.30/- for one sheet, 15 times the normal cost. So, beware of local shops here.
Nothing so great about the place except the price of the hotel.
One curious thing: The hotel reception asked me to sign a form which I thought was normal checkout procedure. In the end, I found the following text in the form: "I authorize the hotel management to open an account in my name and post a review on tripadvisor". This is something which might explain the large number of positive reviews for this hotel. Please be careful before signing any form at these low budget hotels.
