Booked this hotel for my trip in Feb 2013. Firstly, i think the response time from Puneet Sharma was great and he booked me a room without an advance which according to me is pretty trusting of them.
The room itself - I booked a "Super Deluxe" room, well...for about 3.5k INR you cant expect much of super luxury, but it was ok, just dont go by their names of Super Deluxe.
The area - Pretty good area by itself, but the hotel is on the main road and I was given a road facing room. The windows are not sound proofed and I realized that on the first night. A dog would come every night and keep barking exactly under the hotel, it was soooo irritating. I never had a restful sleep. The minimum the hotel should do is get its windows sound proofed
The hotel - Its got this weird design which looked cool in the photos but wasnt so when you look at it. The kitchen in at the bottom and the funnel design ensures you get to hear every frying pan and every drop of water falling. Add to the road noises, this just makes it a bit more uncomfortable.
The Breakfast - Pretty basic, quite a few things keep running out
The Staff - Generally i found the staff very very helpful, always smiling and eager to help. This was the highlight and i think the hotel is worth staying because everybody is so genuinely interested in pleasing you. However on the last day, i asked one of the guys to buy me a nice Brown Scotch tape, he came back with one and said it was INR30, I even tipped him another 20 before my wife realized, its a used one. The guy gave me the hotel tape!! Plus I had been to the reception asking for one and they had told me we dont have one!! Ultimately he paid back my money, but that still was in bad taste in an overall spotless staff behaviour.
Travel Desk - i booked a taxi to the airport from there, a taxi came and didnt turn on the air con stating the AC has loose wiring. I specifically negotiated for a AC taxi. I asked the guy to stop, turn back and I'll call for a call cab and guess what happens magically...the loose wiring resolves itself and the AC starts working.
Moral of the story - Delhi will remain a "Choron ki nagari (A city of thieves, as its called )", be careful of conning schemes including with your taxi folks including "Oh there's a traffic jam there, i'll take you to a better market to shop", etc...etc.
