“Janpath overpriced for mediocre stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2006

We usually stay with family when in Delhi but they were out of town, so we had to find a hotel which was safe and clean. Our four-year-old children were visiting India for the first time and have a complicated medical history, so we didn't want them getting sick either. Janpath was recommended to us by cousins who also had children visiting India for the first time, and they said they had a good experience. We paid way too much for the stay we got - 4700rs/night. The room, though large, was very worn, the bed was inadequate sized. The bathroom was as clean as can be expected from this kind of hotel, I guess, not well-maintained. We had several maintenance issues while there, but the staff was quick and effective in responding. Room service was prompt, but often messy in service. The food was reasonable, both in taste and price. I was told this hotel was a good transition from America to India. It is not. You will feel the culture shock when you stay here. Our train for departure was in the evening, and we asked for delayed check-out, but they charged us a whole extra day for it. The area was safe and my kids didn't get sick on the food (we bought our bottled water elsewhere). Still, I wouldn't recommend this hotel, because you could get a similar hotel for much less, but you have to be careful in Delhi.

I stayed in this hotel with family for one night. It was terrible. The rooms were very dirty with torn carpet. The carpet looked like it has never been cleaned from several years. It is definately NOT a star hotel. It was much worse than some hostels where I have stayed.

In spite of all this, the charges for food were like 4-5* hotels. They charged 45Rs for a cup of tea and more than 200Rs/person for useless breakfast.

The staff was rude. At first they told that the breakfast was complimentary. But after we had the breakfast, they said it is not. After lot of arguing, I had to pay for that. All of the staff was desperate to get tips -- no matter how poorly they have maintained the hotel and how poor their service is.


AVOID AVOID AVOID this hotel.

The hotel was an absolute disgrace, there was no cleansiness we stayed 1 night and we did not even unpack our suitcases slept in our clothes. They insist on payment upfront which should of got the alarm bells ringing. DO NOT STAY HERE

We prebooked the hotel online with Asia.com. When we arrived at the receptionist, it didn't too bad. Once we got to the third floor where our room was, the ambience resemble that of the under funded 1950s Lunatic Asylum. The room was horrendous - windows were covered with wooden board. The electric sockets were hanging out. No hot water at all despite the fact that the staff came up twice to fix it. The staff was aggressive and all they wanted was charging extras as much they can. Be very careful before you pay the bills! A deperate hotel - only to be used in the crisis. Not recommended to stay more than one night!

Terrible, horrible, pathetic, despicable, bad can't find enought negative adjectives for this hotel. Rooms are like they have never been cleaned, bathrooms are like everyone in the hotel uses one single bathroom. Very dirty. Can't imagine this hotel is still functioning.

Service very very bad. no water to drink ... just plain out lousy.

My experience was terrible. I called the day before to confirm our booking with Janpath and it was confirmed. When we got to Janpath from Jaipur, we were rudely told that there was no reservation. I showed the reservation from the internet and he was challenging me that it was not a reservation. He was very rude. It was only after he was going through his reservations did he finally find it and then his tone changed. We had two other bookings for the hotel and he said that there were no other bookings for the future. We even phoned the booking agent twice and they confirmed that there were no other bookings. More later!

The room was not comfortable and for the first time we both decided to forgoe on the bath/shower as it was stained. It was also dark and noisey.We were glad to be out of there in one night.

Now back to the horrible experience...while I was touring around, we found out that Janpath hotel charged us for one night as a no show (I found this out by email). I immediately contacted Janpath and they said that we did not show. They then argued with me that we did not cancel. I told them we confirmed with hotel and booking agent twice that there were no other reservations. They were very argumentative and would not relent and this went on and on for months. I told my credit card company and they finally stepped in and looked after it. Word of warning...get the name of the front desk person and be cautious about your bookings. They tried to get the money out of us and did not succeed. This was the only real negative on an otherwise wonderful adventure.
