“Budget Hotel with Star Facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

The Ginger Hotel called the Rail Yatri Niwas is located in the Ajmeri Gate side of the New Delhi Railway station. This property was earlier under the control of the Indian railways and Ginger is now running this property. The access to the hotel is not great. It is littered and one has to reach the hotel through trucks heading to the station. But they have given a separate enclosure for access once we enter the station premises. The Delhi metro is just 50 m and there is a lift just 10 m that takes one to the metro below. The reception is crowded with all kinds of people waiting. The check-in is 1300 h and check-out 1100 h. Charges are levied in case of early check-in before 1300 h and that is half-day charges. The room was a standard room in the seventh floor with a view but towards the platform side. The room had a coffee maker with adequate supply of coffee and tea bags and complimentary mineral water. The toilet was neat and clean. The functioning of the AC was good and controls were good. The room service was slow. The movement of people was very high. The noise from the New Delhi railway with engines hooting at night was a disturbance. Food was not complimentary like in other Ginger hotels. There is an attached restaurant “comesum” in the ground floor. I found both the non-vegetarian and vegetarian foods kept together. All kinds of Indian foods were found that included thalis. But the quality was not up to the mark. The restaurant served rice till 2300 h. Afterwards, it was the other snacks. WiFi was not functional and of poor signal. The premises had an ATM machine and the Delhi tourism counter. Travel desk was outsourced and the pricing very high. As there is a great demand because of its low pricing booking through the call centre is advisable as the web site always says not available. And do not leave your magnetic room opening card with the reception and instruct them clearly not to clean the room in your absence. The hotel accepts all credit cards.

Room Tip: Take a room away from the railway platforms, on a higher floor with a view.

Exercise extreme caution when booking this hotel. They will cancel the booking even though the room has been paid for in advance at 3 pm if you don't inform the hotel in advance that you wish to check in late. Very surprising that they can do this and really not expected from such an ethical business house like the Tatas.

We reached Delhi at 12.30 am to stay at this hotel as we had to catch an early morning train but when we reached there they refused to give us the room. The reception staff told us that this had been informed in the email sent by the hotel which I never received. I just got a confirmation text from the hotel in which nothing like that was mentioned. Reception staff was rude and not at all co-operative. Was really disappointed.

We already had a stay at Ginger Hotel, Nashik & know the difference between other hotels & these hotels. Here you have to help yourself. Restaurants serves good food. Staff is co-operative. It is located near railway station. It’s location has adv & dis-adv also. Since near to station, it is easy to commute, but same time noise from station can disturb your sleep.
Bathroom was leaking, but staff fixed it in no time.

The hotel is a no frill budget hotel ideal for business travellers.This hotel is a stone's throw away from the New Delhi station Ajmeri Gate side and adjacent to the Metro. The rooms are very basic but well equipped with LCD TV and tea/coffee maker with an iron and iron board on each floor. The hotel also has the option of day stay for transit passengers. The hotel with self checkin and self service will also save your money as you do not have to tip anyone. The comsome restaurant is pathetic

The main advantage of the hotel is its proximity to the New Delhi Railway Station and New Delhi metro station/Airport express station. Its hardly 100 m away from the station if you exit on the Ajmeri Gate side.
The rooms were clean but the locks were a bit jammed. Also the AC noise was a bit high but bearable but the bed was comfortable. I stayed for one night and for the amount you pay, you get a decent room with very good service.
