Plus points - Room kept clean and food at dinner & breakfast quite good but service at breakfast left a lot to be desired considering the number of waiters to guests.
Totally disappointed with this hotel and standard of care, on arrival our bathroom flooded due to leaking basin, fridge was not working and the lack of even warm water for the whole of our 5 night stay was a source of great annoyance, especially when the duty manager tried to fob us off saying " it is summer and Indians don't want hot water" - not what we found at any of the other hotels we stayed at during our month-long trip to India. We even had to boil a kettle of water for me to shave!
According to our tour company rep we had one of their better rooms - dread to think what others were like as bathroom was so small and horribly stained (see pictures).
Although reasonably close to Connaught Place the surrounding area was very shabby and dusty. Also beware of tuk tuk drivers outside hotel who try to take you to emporiums where they obviously receive a kick-back.
This was our second time in Delhi and it was spoilt by the fact that we knew that at the end of our sightseeing tours we had to return to this hotel.
