Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Good to have complimentary pickup from airport and with 9 internet terminals to use free of charge on roof these were real bonuses. Further able to enjoy complimentary teas whilst using the internet, and there were a telescope and mounted binoculars for travellers to use on roof balcony. Hotel was in a good central location for New Delhi and from outside looked most pleasant.
However, there was much confusion when I arrived over which room I was to be allocated. Had booked a standard room and quite satisfied with room given. Then told in evening that I had been given the wrong room and needed to move to a"better" room. No, it was not a better room which I refused, and so back to first room before then being asked to move again to yet a third room. On asking why couldn't just stay put was told would have to pay more to do so, which declined. All very frustrating, annoying and extremely poor service. Also the free pickup had been 45 minutes late collecting me from airport, and so not impressed with the start of my stay. However, the owner himself of the hotel is well liked by all the staff and this showed in the quality of service I fortunately experienced thereafter. My room was clean with both bath /shower, albeit it was fairly basic, although had a large comfortable kingsize bed. You get chased to buy tours, etc at a travel desk which all carry a" high markup". Consider hotel a little expensive , even by Delhi standards and the breakfasts albeit reasonable were also highly priced, but quality of food generally very good for both breakfast and dinner. Except for initial day , I was very happy with staff performance and politeness.
Would I recommend this hotel ? No, I would not in case my initial experience was a sample of what others could expect, but I would still consider staying there myself if able to take advantage of 3 night stay discount , and the other perks.
There are other good hotels very close, which offer a similar standard at a cheaper price, and just minutes walk away. Also, enjoyed excellent complimentary buffet breakfasts included in tariff of the one stayed at for two nights on return back to Delhi.
