“Good hotel in great location!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Wood Castle for two nights- and had excellent service. Rooms were very clean and staff was helpful. The road is very narrow- so make sure transportation to the hotel can make it down the alley.

We stayed at the Wood Castle for four nights and it was amazing. It was by far the best place we've stayed during our six weeks in India. The staff was incredible - after a long day of sightseeing we would be greeted with a nice cold beverage and snacks upon returning. Rajesh and Hassan, the owners, personally drank and chatted with us in the lobby every night and didn't charge us a cent for the drinks. It felt like spending time at a family member's home rather than a hotel. Thanks guys!!

Its a zero frills clean and comfortable hotel. The location is nothing to brag about but once you enter you are greeted by a very clean comfortable and complete value for money hotel. The staff is also very friendly. The complementary breakfast (I had Indian) is a good added bonus. Definitely recommend this place.

Best place I've stayed in my 3 week tour of India. Stayed at 3 different places in different cities, and I couldn't wait to get back to WoodCastle, We really liked it a lot. It is neat and clean. The breakfast is good and most of all,
Great service. Clean living. Friendly atmosphere. Amazing comfor

People are amazing nice there specially (Hassan), and very helpful in every way. They always ask about your day, and what you have planned, and also help suggest things that you should try. We did everything they suggested, and has made our stay and experience in India so much better. As a first-time visitor to Delhi what Woodcastle offers is a respite from the intensity of the city in all its glory but also a way to understand the city while enjoying some quiet moments before you step into all that is Delhi once again. Don’t bother going somewhere else! This place has it all. Also, book early, because they sell out! Don't miss out!

Room Tip: They are clean comfortable and spacious

I lived in India many years ago and have travelled frequently to and from the UK to India. This hotel was by far the best I have stayed in, without going to five star status.
Initially I was concerned as it seemed to be off the beaten track, and from the outside gave no clue as to the comfort inside.
The staff were pleasant and helpful without being intrusive, and responded to all our requests with alacrity and efficiency.
Our rooms were extremely comfortable, with air conditioning and fans which worked. The bed was comfortable and the en suite facilities were of a very high standard. The shower was great.
One thing that really touched me was that I left my Body Shop face cream in the fridge and went travelling for a few days. I then returned to the Wood Castle and asked them if by any chance they had found it. Without delay, one of the staff smiled and said he knew exactly where it was and immediately was able to give me my face cream.
I saw the staff cleaning the rooms and I thought they tackled the job with efficiency. More than a token clean.
I would most certainly stay there again should I ever travel to Delhi. Definitely recommend it to other travellers.

Room Tip: Initially we were given rooms on the third floor. The stairs are quite steep. However we travelled...

My partner and I upgraded to this hotel upon ending a group tour in New Delhi. After traveling for several weeks through Nepal/India we felt this was a great, luxurious place hideout that gave us a chance to recover. The rooms were beautifully decorated and well serviced. The wi-fi was speedy with desktop available. Breakfast was the best breakfast we had during our time in India. Air-conditioning and satellite tv available. Only slight drawbacks I could mention are that there was no communal outside sitting area, that wi-fi does not reach the rooms and that some of the rooms to the back of the hotel (eg. Room 102) were a bit noisy throughout the night. Location in the suburb of Karol Barh is not fully central to Old/New Delhi but we found this did not detract as we were easily able to use the metro and it was a much nicer area than Parhaganj. Would definitely stay again.

Our stay at WoodCastle was the perfect end to an already amazing visit to India.

The facilities were clean, comfortable and in good working order. They had delicious food, great service and free WiFi down lobby . Although all that stuff is important, the more we travel, the more we realize it is the people we get to know on the journey that really matters. It is the relationships we remember long after the condition of the shower or bed (which by the way were great!). The stories we tell others about our visit to India always include many details about our experience with people in woodcastle

We made the reservation through booking.com and it was a flawless experience. We traded several emails and phone calls before we arrived to make sure everything was ok. (Hassan) went above and beyond to help us get an Indian SIM card as well arrange transportation throughout our stay she provided us with advice on places to see, where to eat (where not to eat!), and also supplied us with personal phone number so we could easily stay in contact if we needed anything. All these little touches make such a big difference. We also met another people from usa there with whom we had a great time touring Delhi. You cannot get such good and personalized service in any hotel.

We can’t say enough good things about woodcastle. We will definitely stay there again the next time we are in Delhi and have recommended it to all our friends. If it were possible to give them 10 stars we would.
