I was told this was more a kind of motel then hotel and in some way it does make sense.
First of all the rooms: which are all different (seen several) but we had 2 rooms which both were spacious (ours was very spacious). Good shower (large), the internet was free and the TV had plenty of English channels. There are also no connecting rooms. The website photos of the rooms are pretty much what we had.
But that is it, no pool, I don't think there is a charge for room service and to be honest that is a good thing because the room (basement) where they could serve the coffee, breakfast or maybe diner is dire. Ok clean but there are no breakfast buffet, everything has to be ordered and that is if they get the order right.
Food that we ordered was good and they don't seem to be prepared for orders as the note in the menu does say expect at least 20 mins before food will arrive (their reason is nothing is prepared.... my thoughts is they need to heat up the oven, pots and pans first.
There is also no pool or bar, there are some outdoor seats in the front of the hotel, but with 35 degrees it is better in the airco-ed rooms.
The good thing it does have is that it is about 10 mins away from the Kailash Colony metro station on the yellow line which give you easy access to the rest of Delhi. On the way to the metro (via main road) there is also a mini-supermarket. Other supermarket can be found if you go to the metro via the back road around the Great Kailash Park.
One night we were outside and a manager (seemed to be a hotel manager of several hotels) and he promptly offered us a free beer each and some complementary finger food. Much appreciated, if only the hotel itself was like that.
BTW the location on the map on the hotel website is incorrect. This is more accurate: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ll=28.551222,77.245914&spn=0.006361,0.011362&t=m&z=17 (near
