Vivek is located in a busy place - prices are OK but it's easy to find cheaper accommodation with the same (or probably better) standards.
The staff is unfriendly and totally unconcerned with your well-being. Everything has to be paid in advance, even the WiFi. The rooms are OK but nothing more than that.
Also, as mentioned in one of the reviews below, people from the hotel tend to knock on your door approximately three or four times a day, pretending to be nice and offering you some food, but in reality just wanting some extra cash. All friendliness and attention seem to be insincere.
The morning we left we asked what we should pay for an auto-rickshaw to one of Delhi's train stations (INR 100). When the hotel manager offered us a taxi at INR 300 and we refused it, he asked us at what time our train departure was scheduled. After we told him, he shook his head in disbelief and answered ''Oh no.. What are you still doing here? You are never going to make that train. You should take a taxi!'' Still we took the rickshaw and arrived at the station thirty minutes early. This is exemplary of the attitude of Vivek's personnel.
If you have booked this hotel you might just want to reconsider it.
