“Not all that bad, but look around for better options...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

First off, the directions given by the staff were terrible. It's located at Jal Vihar circle in Lajpat Nagar that most cabbies and locals are familiar with. Neither the address of the hotel nor the staff said so - in fact, they kept giving very vague pointers. The result was a mindless hunt with repeated calls trying to get a fix on the location.

Staff was very friendly and helpful and looked disappointed that I was checking out without staying the night.

Must say I was a bit startled when I saw a couple of roomboys taking out a non-paying guest along with its room - it was a fat rat cosily sitting in a mousetrap! Since I was still in the process of checking in, I was in two minds - but for want of time decided to go ahead. In any case, they assured me that there were no rodents in the rooms - only in the kitchen! Made a mental note not to order anything from room service - had a coffee in the evening, though. I'm still alive, so I guess it must have been all right.

The room was ok, fairly clean - but without a single window - and there were obvious signs of some wear and tear on furniture and walls. Quite unlike the pictures on the Cleartrip website. It felt more like a padded cell than a hotel room - but decided to keep my sanity.

Overall at this price-point it's not a complete write-off - but I was taken in by the pix and the reviews that I cannot agree with. It's not an absolute fleabag but also nothing to rave about, certainly.

Would recommend checking out other options - but if it 's a short trip and your work is around that area (traffic is insane in Delhi), you might want to consider this hotel.

The hotel is relatively new compared to the one we stayed in Old Delhi., hence new sheets, beds, pillows and all that. It has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay so I cant complain!

The only problem was it was quite hard to locate at first since the taxi drivers aren't so familiar with the hotel. I suggest you make get the directions from the hotel staff once u reserve on how to go there.

Btw, the hotel crew were very nice at well. Since we failed to book through agoda, we were expecting that they would give us agoda rate, but the manager was very generous enough to give us agoda rate! :) And also, the hotel crew were very helpful in getting us cabs on a standard rate.. they even lent their mobile phones to help us contact a friend in Delhi..

I had lots of reasons to thank them for that...
