“Not so bad for male solo travelers and not good for anyone else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

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.

The man at the main desk was a huge jerk to us when we came to the hotel. He was very drunk & made a jump through a bunch of hoops because we had an online booking. Wasted an hour + of our time. The room is dirty and mediocre. I'm usually not a very picky person.

Hotel is average.
I stayed in Standard room (non A/C). room was good enough for a single or bachelor person. Bathroom is this standard rooms are horrible and taps looks like those from past with rust on them.
Hotel is in busy area ( fully crowded) with constant noice from adjacent colony.
Cannot recommend couples to go for standard rooms instead please go for Deluxe or luxury rooms.
