This was our first trip to India, been reading lots of reviews and nightmares about hotel experiences in India, thus, we didn't know what to expect before the trip. I booked Sohi Residency basically based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor, which usually would never go wrong, but for this time.. hmm...I think this place has been a bit over-praised. But then again, like I said this was our first trip, we didn't know what to expect, and what's considered an average quality. But being a frequent traveler, having visited almost hundred of cities in more than 20 countries, I think Sohi Residency is just ok. The good side is that, it's safe, clean, tidy, no insects, no bugs, the bed was comfortable. But there are also lot of negative points such as, noise from the reception area, in the middle of the night you could hear people moving furniture (not just one night), you could hear people talking loudly and sounded like it's coming from their own workers, then noise from slamming the door; the hot shower didn't come automatically though, you had to go to the reception to ask them to turn it on, and that's quite a trouble when you travel with small toddler and might need warm water anytime during the stay. Breakfast was absolutely lousy (I can't believe I am saying this, this is the first time I am using such word to describe hotel's breakfast, so sorry guys, but I really mean it!) The breakfast place looked like a half-renovated area, you could see workers still sleeping in some corner while eating your breakfast, which feels really weird (maybe this explains the loud noise and furniture-moving sound in the middle of the night, these people were "working" while we were sleeping. Karolbagh itself is a really nice neighborhood though, visiting India is an eye-opening experience, we did enjoy every moment of it!
