“Good for Pahar Ganj”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

Stayed here twice is September 2011, for 5 nights all together.
This guest house is situated in Pahar Ganj, a 15 minute walk from the New Delhi train station & a 3 minute walk from the Metro (Rama Krishna Ashram Marg station). This is Pahar Ganj with the indescribable smell, filth, pollution and craziness that Pahar Ganj is, so don't expect clean air or a 4 star hotel. That said, if you do choose to stay in Pahar Ganj, Cottage crown Plaza is a good budget option.
The AC worked well, shower was hot, TV worked fine, service was good and it was not noisy. On top of all, I did not encounter a single mouse in the hotel (although I assume there were) and for Pahar Ganj this is impressive.
I paid 900 rs. for a room per night. I know that others bargained and paid less.
By the way, the photo of the lobby on Tripadvisor, is not connected to reality. In reality, this guest house has no real lobby.

Room Tip: A pone notifying the staff how badly I hate mice, they recommended I stay on the top floor and so I...

We stayed in and inspected a variety of places in Delhi and found Hotel Cottage Crown Plaza to be of reasonable standard (not easy to find in Delhi) for a reasonable price (Rs900 p/n).

Room was very clean, good air conditioning, hot water, TV and quiet.

It is in a good location to the bustling Main Bazaar (street) with great little rooftop restaurants surrounding it. Very close to the New Dehli train station and Metro (about 1km).

For Delhi this is an excellent option and we would stay here again if we went back.

Got to know about this property through a common friend, it was a last minute booking.

Would rate if good on all parameters, don't expect them to go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.

They won't deny what you ask for but you have to ask maybe twice

I have visited this hotel in year 2010 May. The ambience of the hotel is exemplary. The best part is the lawn where you can have best night time with music. The view from top to lobby area is great. I could find friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this hotel. The staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home.
The room is cozy with good bed accessories and toiletories.

My wife and I stayed in the Cottage Crown Plaza recently, and found it to be an average, but not outstanding place to stay in while visiting Dehli. We stayed in a standard room, which cost 900Rs. The room was clean and roomy enough and the bed was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms could do with some work - ours had very poor ventilation (no fan, window hardly opened), and some mildew on the walls. The showerhead was also blocked, so we needed to use the hand held shower head to wash (not a very big deal, hand showers seem to be common in India, but a proper shower would have been great!). There’s no restaurant (its next to the nearby sister hotel, Cottage Yes Please), but you can get room service if needed. The junior staff were friendly and helpful, but we were a little bit put off by the brusque and dismissive attitude of the daytime manager. However, at the end of the day it still seemed to be pretty good value for money for a Delhi hotel – nicer than many of the places on offer in Paharganj, but nowhere near as pricey as places elsewhere like near Connought Place.

Decent rooms, if a little small. Still relatively new when I showed up, which meant that the rooms were still in very good condition. Friendly staff arranged a good transfer to the airport for me. Would recommend.
