First the people are friendly, but that is all I experienced as positive at this place. As a longtime traveller in India I can ensure you this is the first time I made a revue because of a bad experience. I arrived in new delhi with fever and wanted to stay in a "not so bad" room. The price of... More

Every time I arrive in Delhi off the plane I head for the RAK International, a place I've stayed many times over the last 10 years..I can rely on this hotel to provide a pain free easing into India and city life, & a fairly short walk to the railway station to book tickets for the journey onward! The rooms... More

+ Close to the New Delhi railway station + Good view from the terrace - Only cold water - Leaky window - noise from the street - Wi-fi works only on the terrace Not so good value, but for one night is this hotel acceptable.

Attracted to the quiet location away from the ear-deafening noise level from the street and the pleasant reception but soon realized that it was the wrong choice. There's a towel with a big hole and toilet urgently required a bottle of bleach. Curtains and floors haven't been washed for many decades. Perhaps it's down to the incre dible heat -... More

We stayed here twice during our travels in India. Hotel is located just off the Main Street in Pahar Ganj, but it is not as quiet as one might expect! Rooms are not so clean, but just ok for the budget traveller. The staff is quite friendly. Taxi to the airport is not as advertised, 400, but if you happen... More

Every surface of my room had black soot, mould and/or grime on it. The walls had streaks of dried-on liquid down them. None of the electric sockets worked. Hot water was only available on request and even then I didn't get enough for a shower. Wi-Fi was, for all practical purposes, non-existent. Owner blamed phone company. Shower head fell off... More

Hello I read ur review thoroughly and genuinely want to ask a question, and my question is have u really VISITED/Stayed at RAK?

This Hotel is just behind the Main Bazar and is just 10 minutes away from the New Delhi Railway. However the Main Bazar is very noisy and dirty. So you cant blame the Hotel for the dirt which evolves everyday in this smoggy city. The staff is nice and helpful. We even got choclate presents for Diwali. For a tight... More

Located in the busy district of Old Delhi, close to Rail and local market. Not in walking distance to Delhi's touristic attraction. Nice and helpful hosts. Many rooms with no windows. Simple accomodation. For a night or two only. Darky rooms and a bit scarry. Consider another options before booking...not recommended for a long visit.

Good location to the New Delhi train station. Food is delicious although it will take about an hour to arrive. The rooms are daggy and a bit dusty, but adequate. Bathroom was mouldy, and there's only hot water on request. The worst part was the hotel owners constantly harassed us to book buses with them, and when we left they... More

We stayed in this hotel for almost one week and it was perfect. We had a nice and clean room at the 3rd floor, with hot shower. The staff is very friendly and helped us very well with train tickets, new towels when we asked. And they can do your laundry if you want, but know that its always more... More
