Hotel Walnut Castle
Ranked #549 of 713 Hotels in New Delhi
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The hotel looks great at first. When we gott to our room, the bed was not clean. The shower look nice, but no hot water. And the bathroom smells funky.
A ok place to stay on a low budget,but my advise, stay away from the food. Half of what we wanted from the menu thay did not have, and what we got was absolutely no good.

Arrived in Delhi at about 12am so didn't arrive to the hotel until 1am. Location of the hotel is quite good as it round the corner from restaurants and markets and a few minute drive from the tourist friendly Connaught Place. Hotel itself is situated down a offset alleyway which isn't very appealing. The main positive of this place is the doorman as he was very friendly and wasn't shy to help (as always people work for tips in Delhi). We were travelling with 2 other friends and requested two twins rooms but were only provided with one. Our room was okay, bed sheets clean but had awful blankets which kept you awake all night as they were itchy. Bathroom was standard but no hot water on any day we stayed there, 3 in total. Friend room was okay to but could sit on toilet as it was poorly planned. Our friends' sheets were dirty on every occasion.

Breakfast is very basic with vegetarian daals and small chappatis. Tea was very nice though and you have to ask for toast and jam. Wifi is a bit hit and miss there, not very secure either so don't buy stuff online which using it. From desk staff during the day are nice but the night manager is a shame to any front desk staff. Rude and abrupt he did not help nor did he talk to us properly on any occasion. They did let us leave our stuff in there "store room" while we had our tour of the Golden Triangle only for us to find out the "store room" was actually a corner round the back of the lift.

Anyway this was an okay night stop but no more, not comfortable nor enjoyable.

While in Delhi I was staying at a wonderful hotel but was conned into changing it for a 'much better' one by a travel company I booked a car with. (see separate review of Diamond Tours India) I was horrified to end up at the Walnut Castle, I immediately complained to the company and was told my room would be upgraded.....it never was. Very basic, not clean around fridge, on floor and on the old furniture. Staff gathered in groups and leared at breakfast and when trying to get wifi, breakfast sub-standard. No dining room, breakfast eaten beside toilets in a corridor! I was glad to leave.
Positives - clean sheets, hot water. Cheap (although not though tour company) Certainly much better hotels in the area for the money.

Room Tip: Away from elevator!

i arrived in india for the first time 3/3/12, had only booked a taxi for 2 weeks for driving me around rajasthan. hotel was selected by my driver. as i have not been to delhi before i assumed it was a good choice, after now more then two weks in india i know that you can get better hotels for better price (if you book on your own you do not have to pay the commisiion for the driver)

We stayed here for one night in mid february and that was one night too many. We were in India for 3 weeks and stayed in a variety of hotels/homestays and this was the only place where I felt reluctant to sleep in the bed - Luckily I had a sleeping bag liner to use. The sheet was very dirty and badly stained, it looked like it had not been changed and the room was also not very clean - breakfast was very disappointing. Perhaps it was acceptable for a very cheap budget hotel - however the hotel was booked for us and we were possibly misled into thinking this was a mid-range hotel, which it clearly is not. On a positive note the staff were very helpful and were quick to respond to our request for clean sheets.

the hotel is very well stuated in a quiet residential area of Karola Bagh, very close to the metro, and the lively street evening market. the lounge area is cosy, with TV,providing a warm homely atmosphere, with 2 dining tables right there. Breakfast was only adequate but the dinner menu was short but very good and very reasonably priced. My main criticism was the tiny geyser,only enough hot water for one very quick shower. Otherwise the room was quite small but comfortable. While we were there Kingfisher airline cancelled many flights and as we were to fly the next day we were worried about our flight. the staff were exceptionally helpful and made many phone calls to check n the status of our flight. I would recommend this hotel as a good, standard hotel with not too many frills.

Room Tip: Our room was very near the front entrance and was a little noisy when guests arrived or departed in...
