“Loved the WiFi in my room..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2008

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights..
They have a wide range of rooms ov different cost..
had a nice stay the staff was friendly. I had issues with the Taxi i took from the airport to the hotel the staff was helpful enough to deal with the overcharging the driver for me..
The food is nice you can catch a bit ov sun on the roof...
The have WIFI which was nice i used my laptop in my room which was a plus.

All in all it was a good experience.. I would recommend the hotel for a cheap place in delhi..

We stayed at the Vivek hotel in Pahar Ganj in November last. We chose it because we wanted to be in the middle of the busy bazaar area to experience the atmosphere of Delhi. All I can say really is avoid it unless really desperate.
We emailed our booking and had requested an airport pick up which they claimed to offer- it never materialised.When we arrived they didn't seem to have our booking but that was ok because they had vacancies...... with good reason. The room we stayed in was filthy, noisy and did not feel at all safe. There were men hanging around on each floor and in the reception area constantly for no apparent reason. My husbands sandals were stolen from the room! need I say more. We moved after one night to the Ajanta which was much nicer but also much more expensive. We consider ourselves accustomed to backpacking and staying in rough and ready places all over, but could not possibly recommend this place even to seasoned travellers!
ps the restaurant in the Metropolis hotel up the street was great!

  • Liked — there was internet access in the biulding for a small fee

Hi all, i have just stayed in the Vivek Hotel but checked out the next day. i went just up the road to Hare krsna Hotel which was way beter for a cheaper price. Vivek was a little expensive and the rooms are just filthy. Not maintained at all. The bathroom walls are grimey. There was even some clothes left in the bathroom from the previous tenant. Where as where i am staying now, it is so much better and clean.
My opinion... avoid Vivek until they start cleaning their rooms.

Stayed December 2006
