“Worse than ever, it seems!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2008

I stayed at Hotel Samrat more than 5 years ago ; it was awful then and ,remarkably, seems to have become much worse now. I say "remarkable" because Delhi has improved so much as a city in recent times and there are so many guest-houses and the like available, if one is not inclined to pay the exorbitant 5-star hotel rates. But why would anyone pay good money for the mess that is the Samrat. Surely, the Indian or Delhi tourist authorities should take action.

The hotel is very old and currently undergoing renovation. Construction sites are all over the place. Cables hanging out lose, water lines, cockroaches running around the bath room....
The staff is unmotivated and non-emotional. The rooms are mostly okay. Breakfast buffet is very limited and really no pleasure. For business travellers I do not recommend this hotel.

DO NOT WAISTE YOUR MONEY TO STAY THERE.

DIRTY - I'm really sorry that have not make a picture... You'd amaize...
NOISY - DISCO in a hotel finish at 3 a.m. - no chance to sleep!
FOOD IS REALLY POOR and BAD QUALITY
Kitchen is dirty.
LOCATION is bad - nothing to go around.
The worst Moscow 2 stars hotel would be better then this 4!

We stayed here reluctantly (having read TripAdvisor reviews) because it was part of a conference package. It certainly lived up to those reviews and its name the SamRAT, as there were rats!
This is a government run hotel and will need to improve markedly if it is going to be ready for the C'wealth Games in 2010. Directly next door is another government run hotel, Ashtok, which was genuinely 5 star. The SamRAT was being belatedly renovated in some areas and there was an excellent privately run restaurant and bar on the ground floor but this was not advertised and difficult to 'happen upon'.

Do NOT stay here. This is a government run hell-hole. I travelled to New Delhi for a friends wedding and this hotel was recommended by the family of the bride so we assumed it would be ok. However the hotel stank of damp, the room was filthy and had cockroaches, the staff were rude and demanded tips, I became violently ill after staying here. A friend staying at the same time saw a rat run across the breakfast room. Avoid!!!!!

It was very run down and smelly! Even though they said we had the updated rooms. The hotel is government owned and they sould be ashamed of it's condition.

Far too expensive for what you get. The price is really only for the downtown location. Run-down room and hardly any facilities. But at least the room was tidy, quiet and not dusty or smelly.
