If you want to stay in or near the city, don't stay here. If you are in transit or just in Delhi for a day or 2, it's actually quite comfortable and only a short drive to IG airport. Getting here was a bit tricky, as it is in a sprawling outer suburb called Dwarka, which is divided into sectors that are very tough to navigate - make sure your taxi driver knows where he is going before setting off.
Once here, it doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is very comfortable, with air-con, cable TV, and good clean beds and bathrooms. Breakfast is free which is a nice touch, and Viktor was very helpful in arranging cabs and providing advice about Delhi, as well organising a very decent meal for us after a long day in transit. He is the only one who speaks any English, so if you are struggling to communicate with staff on duty, ask for Viktor.
We were only here for the night, but I'd be happy to stay here again in the same circumstances.
