“Only the location saves it!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2006

We stayed here for 3 nights after arriving in India for a 3 week tour.The room was large but with grubby sheets,tepid water and the special bonus of blood stained towels!The breakfast which comes to the room is only white sliced toast although we noticed Indian guests having cooked food in the corridor as there is no dining room.Mysteriously we got a letter from the Manager telling us chicken was off the menu due to bird flu!The one saving grace is the location at the heart of Connaught Place with a new Metro station outside and you can walk in the evening to a number of good quality restaurants very close by.

Their motto is "Hospitality Redefined" which, after reading this personal account, is quite apt but for all the wrong reasons.
Dirty, old sheets (one covered in blood, which was not removed after 3 requests), cold showers (was told to run the water for upwards of 5 mins - but even longer running time led to no more than strictly lukewarm), no restaurant / eating room (breakfasts in your own bedroom (no table, only 1 chair - none of which is conducive to business travel), generator blasting away just outside our rooms (accessed via a balcony-style corridor, overlooking a shambles outside), phone bills charged to your room, no toilet paper, only Pepsi in the room bar, no offstreet parking, no formal hotel entrance, but instead a flight of steps up from street level, a street covered in dust & traders.

All this for the exhorbitant fee of U$155 nightly, plus 12½% Delhi hotel tax fee. Owner would not budge when asked for a refund, based on the above issues. It just so happened that Delhi was more or less fully booked for a Trade Convention, so no chance of relocating, otherwise I would have done so.

Definitely not 3-star material, don't be fooled by the name, their motto or the web pictures.

In short, avoid like the plague.
