I am absolutely amazed that anyone could give this hotel a good rating. I felt like I had stepped back in time to the 1960s. It is so old and so dated and badly in need of some attention...in every aspect. Even a room change did not improve the situation. I never once had any hot water. I even went to the small and dismal spa and still had no hot water. Outside of Delhi it is hard to get someone to understand you and that made for some uncomfortable situations. The restaurant is ambience-free with some amazingly bad food. On the upside the staff were generally polite. On the downside, it was the annual staff party held onsite and the noise was a big distraction from sleeping. In fairness to the hotel, this is not where our tour group was scheduled to stay. Our itinerary listed the ITC Mughal, but for some still unexplained reason SITA put us at this hotel. We paid for a five-star hotel and got this two-star property instead. The old bait and switch trick from SITA. Buyer beware.
