“A cheap hotel in Connaught Place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2009

We stayed here for the last night of our holiday, and chose it simply on price and location.
We had stayed in Delhi at the beginning of our holiday and had regretted staying in Old Delhi. Connaught Place is nice. It is clean (by Delhi standards) and has an abundance of restaurants of all types as well as a large Bazar.
Hotel Bright is well located in the heart of CP, easy walking distance to everywhere.
We booked a super deluxe room with bathroom.
The hotel looks dingy from the outside and is up two flights of stairs so it is certainly not suitable for people with mobility problems.
Our room looked nothing like the super deluxe on the website, though to be fair we realised that it would not be 5 star from the price.
The room was large with two comfortable seats a double bed and a tv. The bathroom was also large and had soap and towels.
The room looked like it hadn't been painted in years. The bed linen looked dirty, there was no top sheet, just a blanket , though to be fair we didn't ask for more linen. The mattress was very thin... only just thick enough to avoid feeling like you were sleeping on the floor.
The absolute worst thing about our room was the noise. We had requested a quiet room. We had not been given one overlooking the street, but could hear noisy music through the bathroom window and persistant chattering and giggling from next door. This was because there was a opening between our rooms, but it was far too high for us to get up and jam it closed. It really did sound like the people next door (who were talking quite loudly, but not shouting) were in the room with us.
We really didn't get a wink of sleep.
Breakfast was offered, but we chose to eat out.
If you are on a budget this hotel is ok, but for the price of an auto rickshaw it is probably best staying in Old Delhi and travelling to CP as I am sure it would be cheaper.
If you are not on a budget spend a little more... get a good night sleep. Lack of sleep mixed with the noise of Delhi is not a good combination!

This hotel is located on the second floor not so friendly place. I am single female traveling alone. Made my reservation on line for 1100 rubees. When I got there, I came to this dirty filty place. They showed me a room, I asked where is the bathroom or air conditon. Manager said thats extra madam. So I had to take it. Air conditon is so loud and you cant adjust the air flow, so if you are cold, you have to tell them to turn it off if you are hot you have to tell them to turn it on. Bathroom, floors filty, no paint a lot of mildew. When I woke up nobody is offered me a breakfast, instead the mgr said this is tour guide he will help you with your stay in Delhi.

So I told the so called tour guide ( his name is Niyaz, he is just a commisioner for travel agency) I would like to go to train station to get tickets. He said he will walk with me there. I said you can just tell me how to get there I can go, he said it is dangerous for women to walk alone on that part of the city. So we started to walk, he took me to travel agency where they pressured me to buy a package tour for $300. When I insist going to train station they showed me a wrong way to go. So I ended up walking to very bad part of the town. So everybody said they will show me the train station I ended up going to different travel agency.

Thanks to my hotel and the manager Mr. Payde I had a day from hell. But finally at 5:00 pm I found the railway station. So I will never go back nor recommend this to my friends. I will tell my enemies this is a wonderful hotel.

This has to be one of the most disgusting places i have ever stayed at. Unfortunately we arrived too late at night to try to find somewhere else to stay. We booked a triple room at Hotel Bright by phone for 2 nights after seeing the recommendation in LP. When we arrived and climbed up the stairs we were ushered up yet more stairs and this seemed to take us to a different hotel - Hotel Blue. We were told there were no more rooms at Hotel Bright even though we had a room booked. The room was filthy, paint was peeing off the walls because of the damp, the sheets were stained and the pillows foul. Not surprisingly we had problems with bed bugs. There was no window in the bedroom and the shared bathroom (not what we had booked) had vomit over the toilet seat. When we compained we were shown a tiny double room at Hotel Bright which could not take a third person and was no cleaner than the Hotel Blue room. We only stayed one night, left as quickly as we could the following morning and found a different place to stay.

I spent 2 nights there, the 14th and 15th of August 2008.
I booked the hotel from their home site.

I asked for a Deluxe room ( with non shared bathroom and two separated beds) and i payed 6300 INR with CC.

When i was there they showed me a room with fan on the top, grey walls because of the dirt and a lot of powder everywhere, with a single big bed.
In the bathroom the water was smelly and green.
Outside was raining and i had water coming down from the top of the room, even in the bathroom, for the entire two days.
No hot water.

The pictures on the home site are not true ... or they found a very good photographer.

I don't have any pictures of the room, but my friend will write down something about the hotel with some photos.

The worst ever !!

This place really is the pits. I can't think of one redeeming feature, it’s as dirty as all the others are saying but its also noisy, but because it’s in the centre of Delhi, but because the staff start banging about first thing in the morning. The bathrooms basically don’t work. Also, the staff must have passed our details on to a tout as we kept getting called and 'reception' even tried to delay us from leaving and then the tout mysteriously appeared attempting to pressurise us into some kind of trip. There really is no reason to ever go to this pit, I urge anyone to stay away!!!!

Has a good review in budget section of Lonely planet and worse reviewer states it is in the process of being renovated. If this is the place after being renovated then I would have hated to stay in it before. The room was filthy but worse the bed sheets were disgusting and bug ridden. I'm quite prepared to rough it but this was too much to bear. Entries in LP are worth so much to these kind of establishments, this one should be removed from it immediately and given to a more worthy budget hotel. I regret I didn't take any photos to show how bad it was, stayed in a lot of budget hotels in India, some were pretty bad but they at least had clean sheets.... this was easily the worst I saw.
