“Personal touch! Great stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Our stay at WoodCastle was the perfect end to an already amazing visit to India.

The facilities were clean, comfortable and in good working order. They had delicious food, great service and free WiFi down lobby . Although all that stuff is important, the more we travel, the more we realize it is the people we get to know on the journey that really matters. It is the relationships we remember long after the condition of the shower or bed (which by the way were great!). The stories we tell others about our visit to India always include many details about our experience with people in woodcastle

We made the reservation through booking.com and it was a flawless experience. We traded several emails and phone calls before we arrived to make sure everything was ok. (Hassan) went above and beyond to help us get an Indian SIM card as well arrange transportation throughout our stay she provided us with advice on places to see, where to eat (where not to eat!), and also supplied us with personal phone number so we could easily stay in contact if we needed anything. All these little touches make such a big difference. We also met another people from usa there with whom we had a great time touring Delhi. You cannot get such good and personalized service in any hotel.

We can’t say enough good things about woodcastle. We will definitely stay there again the next time we are in Delhi and have recommended it to all our friends. If it were possible to give them 10 stars we would.

Very nice hotel to stay. The rooms are very clean and tidy. The food is awesome and very humble staff.

We stayed for one night, even after the check-out time the manager is given one room out of two until we finish our shopping.

The location is in the residential area and small street, However the QUALITY is excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Quite a gem this one. We were in one of those scam 'government booking agencies' and I called this place to shop around (always have a Plan B). He said 'You're lucky, it's a scam....' and gave us the best room for the regular room price (well, I have no way of confirming this but the room was very good -- room 101).

Complimentary free beer on arrival. Excellent idea.

Very clean and well designed.

The only real downside is the location. It's in a residential backstreet and there's not much in the area. No cafes, etc and I didn't see any other foreigners around. The metro station is just a few minutes' walk though (watch your pockets). The autorickshaw had a little trouble finding it (and hilariously tried to blame me, making some vague threat about how he was a 'crazy man!'). So it's a great place if you plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel, and the staff were very good. Room service was kind of like a box of chocolates, but I can't seriously fault the place.

Room Tip: We had room 101 -- 'the best room', which was very good.

I stayed in this hotel in May 2011. The room and service exceeded our expectations. The bed was huge and the decor was very european. The room was much bigger than the ones in the pictures and had enough space for 2 people with 2 huge suitcases. The bathroom was really clean with powerful shower. Aircon in the room and thick curtains kept the heat outside. The hotel is not in a very central place so a bit hard to find by yourself. Room service also good, with lots of choices in the menu. Taxi service to/from airport provided as well although we did have some difficulty finding the taxi driver when we arrived at the airport and had to call the hotel. Apart from that, everything else was great. I recommend this place.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor are probably bigger.

We arrived at Wood Castle from Delhi train station. Our driver, from train station, found this hotel with some difficulties, because the hotel sign was hard to see (It was very small). We had to call the manager to guide our driver, but in spite of their instructions, the driver remained confused and we were circled round the hotel, unable to find it. Finally, one of the hotel's staff was sent by manager and guide us to hotel.

The hotel, itself, was a great place, and we immediately forgot the difficulties arriving the hotel! The room was so clean, had enough space, and well air conditioned. The bed was so comfortable for sleeping. The bathroom had a nice decor on its wall, and it was very neat and clean too. Although our room was located just by the main door and close to the main street, there were no unbearable noise inside the room, and the room was acceptably quiet. In contrast to other hotels we had stayed in India, there were two pairs of slippers in our room which were blessing!
The room was equipped by a locker for personal stuffs. I should really mentioned that in spite of that I had totally forgotten to keep my money (around 110000 Indian rupee - 2000$), identifications (passport, driver's license), laptop, iPhone, etc in locker during the room cleaning (when we were not in room), the service personnel did not do any thing wrong and all of our stuffs were safe when we arrived hotel!

We stayed at Wood Castle for the final 3 days of our 5 week trip backpacking around India. Although this hotel was twice as expensive as anywhere else we had stayed, it was expected for a capital city and amazing value for Dehli hotels. Would highly recommend staying here - but call directly or chance your arm and turn up to book a room as you might get a better deal then if you book online through a website.

Pros :

Hotel is well maintained and they make a small space seem very spacious with simple, modern decor. Double Rooms are good size, with all mod cons and nice bathrooms. Very clean. Extremely comfortable beds and good linen.

Staff are extremely nice and helpful - it was our friend's birthday during our stay and they covered her door in balloons, gave her a card and gave us a couple of free beers, very sweet. These personal touches go a long way in making up for cons below.

Wifi in reception is good and fast, modern computer with Skype available for use - all free access.

Good atmosphere in hotel - the reception area feels like a friend's sitting room and you can chat away to other guests or watch tv with the staff in comfort (and a/c!)

Hotel can organize drivers very quickly to take you wherever you want to go. We had a lovely man names Mohan for a day tour - highly recommended. Can pick up on the type of tour/markets you want rather than the usual scam of ignoring your every request and taking you wherever they can get commission.

Cons :

Card machine wasn't working for three days previous to our arrival or during our stay and they didn't seem to be in a hurry to get it fixed. As it was our last few days in India it was a pain to have to pay high charges to withdraw more rupees when we were expecting to be able to pay on card.

No wifi in the rooms.

Difficult to find the hotel (down an alleyway and most of our taxi/tuk tuk drivers didn't seem to be familiar with the block system around channa market).

No lift - staff are happy to carry bags up stairs but if you are on top floor you need to prepare yourself or climbing 4 flights in non-a/c corridors!

Food is not great, standard toast and eggs/indian breakfast included in room price. nothing special but edible. Indian/Chinese menu available for Room service - too much good food available in Delhi to merit eating in!

Safety - it was probably just a freak accident, but on the last night our air con fuse blew and went on fire briefly giving us quite a fright. The hotel quickly moved us to another room for the night but we were slightly concerned that they did not seem as concerned about ensuring the room/socket was secured and checked to ensure there was no further danger.

I cannot recommend wood castle enough. Upon arrival at the hostel we were made to feel welcome and to treat this place like home with no question or query too much.
Our outings and day trips and over night trips were all handled with here quickly and efficiently without any problems
The food was lovely and nice if we didn't want to venture out and the rooms were above my expectations for what we paid to stay here
In short - safe, comfortable, affordable and friendly staff. All things I look for being a female traveller. I would stay here again in a heart beat
