Hotel Le Roi is the best hotel I've stayed in in India to date in terms of the following:
Great rooms, modern, and fresh like any good quality hotel. Very clean, lovely bedding and comfortable mattress, flat screen tv, safe in the room, and little seating area. Excellent bathroom, fluffy towels and plenty of hot water. The wifi was great, although the requirement for a daily login was a niggle. Hotel reception were efficient, laundry was good, and all the staff were polite and friendly.
The cafe let it down, and the breakfast buffet was overpriced for what was offered. I ate out most days.
The room cleaning was,ate afternoon, at the point I had returned to the hotel, so my room wasn't cleaned. This wasn't a huge issue for me, as I'm not fussed about having my bed made, a d don't need clean sheets and a towel every day but it did make me wonder what took up so much time that the rooms weren't serviced till the afternoon.
Rooms at the front of the hotel are very noisy, due to the road traffic, dog barking and general hubbub of Paharganj. it seemed the whole of the road was in the room. I think I was put in one of the front rooms because I'd booked via makemytrip which discounted the price the hotel reception itself was offering. I chose to pay the hotel price and be moved when I extended my stay and I was given a bigger room and it was a lot quieter. For the sake of a couple of hundred rupees it was a great decision!
This isn't a complaint but for those concerned about getting dirty......The road outside the hotel is an interesting experience, particularly in the rain when it becomes a mud pit. Next door is some kind of builder's merchants where bricks are loaded up and transported on hand carts around town. It tends to get a bit busy and congested there, as well as noisy, so if that's not for you, stay somewhere else.
The walk down to New Delhi station is fine, although if you're loaded with bags a rickshaw is best, particularly in the slippery mud! As the hotel isn't on the Main Bazaar road you don't get hassle from shopkeepers either.
Check out early morning (4.30am) was easy and straight forward.
Another reviewer has said they have mixed feelings about the hotel and I could see why, but overall this hotel represents great value for money I feel it is definitely worth it!
