We stayed two nights at WoodCastle: a good start for our 3 month trip in India. They arranged a pickup for us (650r) at the airport which was really nice and they also dropped us off when we took our next flight to Ladakh.

Room was alright, clean and comfortable. Hot water worked fine and AC. I dont remember but I think breakfast was included. There is also free internet in the lobby. Staff is helpful and polite. The area felt safe enough, we took the metro downtown (station is about 5 min walk), very crowded of course but hey this is Delhi.

It has so far been one of the most expensive hotels we have stayed in India, but its worth paying a bit more in Delhi, especially when its your first stop in India and you need something clean and comfortable.
Would recommend this place and stay there again!

On previous trips to Delhi for work I stayed in one of the larger “business” hotels near Rejendra Place. I decided to try something smaller in the neighborhood this time, and found Wood Castle (and its excellent reviews) on Google maps. It is small and a little off the main road, which makes it hard to find, but it’s worth the effort. Cab drivers won’t know where it is. A good indication is that it on the road going north off Pusa Road at metro post 122. There is decent map on their website, but west is on the right and east on the left.
Because it is off the main road, it is much quieter than the hotels on Rajendra Place. The staff is exceptionally, laid back, friendly, and attentive. I also appreciated that they did not hound me for tips, something I’ve experienced at other places in Delhi I’ve stayed (although tips were most appreciated by the guys carrying my bags and serving breakfast).
The lobby has fast, free, and reliable internet (and a computer if you have no laptop). It’s a comfortable place to work or plan your next day of sightseeing. I stayed in a “super deluxe” room. It was nice (lots of wood), clean, and large but not huge. The bed was big and comfortable and the window AC unit kept the room cold (albeit a little loudly). The bathroom was large and clean. My only gripe is that the shower is on the side of the bathroom with no separation so water goes everywhere, but it quickly drains.
Breakfast was simple, filling, and good. They have American, Indian and Continental options. The coffee could be better (instant, as is often the case). I had dinner there one night and liked the food. Meal service was always attentive, prompt and friendly.
Overall I highly recommend!

I chose this hotel because it had good reviews for airport pick up. These were deserved. The rooms are clean. The staff friendly. It easy to get to the city centre-2 stops on the metro. Hot water, a fridge in the room and many extra touches. I would highly recommend it.

Central location in Delhi but still in a quiet residential area. Most rooms are windowless and not too big but were always clean. The big advantage of this place is the family atmosphere spread by the staff.

After staying at the Grand Godwin (NOT recommended), upon return to Delhi we stayed at the Wood Castl which was recommended to us by an American solo-traveller. The place is hard to find (most taxi drivers don't know the street), but after phoning the hotel, they picked us up at the place where our taxi driver got lost. For free! The people running the hotel are VERY friendly and the rooms are AWESOME value. Neat, very clean, with all necessary amenities and more: fridge, clean bathroom with HOT water, bedroom is spacious with large tv and extremely clean, and A/C. Food in the hotel is great, internet for free and breakfast delicious. The team working at the wood castle is eager to help you and help you any time of the day. Compared to the Grand Godwin, this hotel is so much more value! Plus: It is cheaper as well and in a more clean environment (not in the old part of town like the Grand Godwin) which might be important for some (I loved the old part b/c of the crazy Indian hecticness but it might not be fun for all...). Besides this, it is within walking distance of the Karol Bagh Metro stop (about 6 - 8 minutes walking). I would definitely go back!

The Woodcastle is a really friendly family run hotel that is clean and welcoming. The staff are really friendly and helpful unlike some Dehliates we met. The rooms are clean and well kept. The area, Karol Bagh, is situated conveniently near the metro station and shopping areas within walking distance. For the money we paid, we felt we got good rooms and very good service. We would definately go there again if we returned to Delhi.
