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.
