This hotel was booked for us via an agent, I did ask for it to be changed months ahead of our visit due to some of the reviews we read, but this just did not happen.
So, I have mixed feelings about this hotel.
The location is poor. Well, for the tourist the location is poor, but for the commuter it sits right on the ring road with good connections to the train station and airport.
I had read some of the negative reviews on here and was 'prepared for the worst'!
We turned off the dirty side street through the gate with a breathe of relief, the hotel actually looked OK. We went up to our room and I was pleasantly suprised, my expectations were low, but even so, the room was clean, tidy, everything worked, didnt look tired and after our 16hr train ride was actually very welcoming!
The staff were very pleasant, although were expecting us the day earlier as our agent booked us 2 nights instead of 1. Nevertheless this wasnt a problem for them (does mean we have overpaid our agent a day).
We had a couple of drinks in their "1440" restaurant which has a small but clean courtyard area which, although enclosed, doesn't feel confined, nor does it make you feel in the outskirts of the city.
My only complaint about this is that the smoking 'area' is not adhered to, and guests seem to smoke anywhere they want... Not great if you're non smokers.
We did have a meal here too, which turned out fine, the food was nice and reasonably priced, though it does make me laugh that the beer is priced at "max selling price 65rupees" but was being sold for 200rupees! Still cheap, but it did amuse us.
In conclusion, this feels like a corporate hotel, great for business trips or short stopovers. For tourists looking to explore Delhi, I would say this is not for you. We went for a walk around the block and its very under developed, we were very much stared at as we walked down the street sometimes to an uncomfortable level.
