I have mixed feelings about Hotel Le Roi. The room itself was good—clean and comfortable--except for the clogged sink drain in the bathroom. The staff was also attentive to our requests, but they seemed to expect (and one even demanded) tips for every single thing that they do. The hotel’s location is both good and bad: good if you want to be close to the railway station and experience the color and chaos of Pahar Ganj; bad if you are visiting the country (or any other developing country) for the first time. The area, like India itself, is just so overwhelming and really exciting (and for a few, even terrifying).
Breakfast came free, but in the three days that we stayed there there was not enough food on the buffet table and we had to wait until they refilled the trays. The same goes for coffee. There wasn’t any so we had to ask the staff and wait.
Through the hotel, we also availed of a taxi that gave us a tour of Delhi. It was a good choice- inexpensive compared to other organized tours and we got to choose the places that we wanted to go to.
The manager also let us leave some of our luggage in the hotel when we went to Agra and Jaipur. Everything's intact when we came back. That's another good thing about Hotel Le Roi.More
