We stayed in a family room. The room was fine, but we couldn't figure out how to use the AC. The location being close to the train station and the market was convenient, as well as the free wifi and breakfast included. The staff were also friendly. If you go to this hotel or any other hotel nearby, I would recommend the prepaid taxi from the Delhi airport because they charge less (around 150 rupees versus 670). We also did the city tour, just for convenience ($20) and the Taj Mahal tour with them. I'm sure we overpaid, but we didn't really know where else to book these and we just wanted to do them without stressing too much.
Onto the bad: there were cockroaches. Baby cockroaches, but cockroaches nonetheless. The manager is also a bit of a businessman. We needed to book a train, but for one of the trains we had to do it through the foreign office and he couldn't book it for us. He reassured us that it would be available the next day if we just continued to do our tours (it was just really shady because there were a couple of times we asked if we should book it on that day). That being said, we weren't able to get our tickets. It just seemed like he didn't really care because he wasn't getting a commission out of it.
