The New Delhi Railway Station and its vicinity are not especially known for cleanliness nor traffic sense. After seeing the glowing reviews in tripadvisor, I booked this hotel for a recent personal trip to Delhi. The rates were very reasonable, given the usual inflated rates of Delhi hotels.
The location of this hotel is very convenient. Just a 5 minute walk from the station main gate, and a 10 minute walk from the Metro station. I took the Airport Metro Express to the station. Hence this location is good even for air travelers. Plus it is just a 5 minute cycle rickshaw ride to Connaught Place (CP). The hotel provides a free shuttle on the hour (until 4 pm) to CP.
The hotel's exterior is not very prominent and not easy to find. I was looking for the trademark yellow and cream exterior, but as the building blends with the dusty surroundings, you don't see the entrance until you reach the Arakashan Road. Surprisingly, the cycle rickshaw wallahs don't know this place yet, and you need to mention the road name.
Once you go inside - it is a different world altogether. Very friendly and fast front-desk service, and a serene and cosy open courtyard on each floor with sofas/chairs, coffee/tea provision on each floor, and finally the room: spotlessly clean bathroom and a bright and peppy room and decor.
I had a great sleep on the hard bed, listening to the soothing sounds of the trains passing through the station!
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel but I did not try the food there nor the breakfast. The breakfast is buffet-only and is continental. No Indian breakfast. But as CP was nearby, I did not have any problems with food at all.
In summary, a great value for money + international standard, and I will stay in this hotel next time as well. The only 2 mild negative comments I have are the lack of Indian breakfast options, and the bed pillows were not that clean. I hope the hotel management continues to maintain the facilities well.
