“Disgusting! Dirty! Expensive! Rip-Off! Thiefs!”
Reviewed April 13, 2007

On our way to Agra from Chandigarh, we where forced to spend a night in Delhi. As this was not planned for, we ended up having to search for a hotel at 11pm in the night. We where looking for Nirula's as that was highly rated by our "Let's Go India" guide, but that has closed down so the nearest was York Hotel.

TRUST US, DO NOT GO THERE. It cost us Rs 3,700 (ZAR 650 / US$ 90), the first room we got was all musty and smelt damp. As we thought it was only for a few hours we thought we could survive the room. We tried the shower and it flooded the room. So they moved to another room that was dirty, no hot water and the bath tub had rings. Dirt rings. We decided to just suffer it out as we would be out in a few hours time. The next morning we didn't even take a shower as it was so disgusting. We just took our bags and headed for the train station.

Disgusting!

When I checked out, the hotel raised the rates by 50% over what we had agreed on when I checked in. So I got screwed and obviously will never return.

The hotel looks more like a motel than a hotel. Was expecting at least a 3 or 4 star hotel due to the price i paid (booked online) and the lonely planet put it as midrange. What a dissappointment.

Overall it's okay and clean (although looks a bit run down) - friendly staff and an overally helpful tourdesk to wakes you up in the morning while you're having a peaceful sleep to ask ifyou would like a car for the day! The place is safe and located at the heart of budget shopping. Just 5 min down the road is Costa - thank goodness!

Tips - bring your own toiletries!

So if you're planning to stay there, remember to be modest in your expectation!

We stayed here in January with our two children (15 and 11) for 6 nights as part of a round the world trip. It was my and our children's first trip to India (my wife had visited when she was young), and first experience of a developing country.

The staff were friendly and helpful (tipping is mandatory), and the hotel is quite central (which was a key feature for us). The hotel was very basic though, and Connaught Place is generally fairly run down (except for inside many of the shops).

The hotel is situated in K block, which is in the northern part of the circular Connaught Place. The nicer hotels in that general area tend to be on Janpath which runs south from Connaught place. There is a brand new metro station in the middle of Connaught Place.

When we arrived at the hotel we found that our room only had one queen sized bed and one single bed (despite clearly setting out by email when booking that we required a room for 4 people - and being quoted a price on that basis), with not enough room to fit another bed. Rather than pay for two rooms (if we had known we may have to do that we would have chosen another hotel in the first place) we ended up having to sleep three people on the queen sized bed.

The room did have a TV, hot water, a shower, and a toilet that worked, but apart from that it was pretty sparse, and was fairly dusty (as is most of Delhi). The hotel has room service, but the choice is very limited. The sheets were clean, but the blankets were very old and dirty (with Delhi dust and cigarette ash).

The hotel has a man who organises tours/drivers, who was fairly helpful (although a bit on the pushy side). We booked a driver for a day trip of Delhi through him, which was okay but it would have been better to have a guide (or to do a guided tour) - we did a guided tour to Agra through Ashoka tours (a government agency situated in Connaught Place) - which was much more informative and enjoyable.

The hotel was renovating its facade while we were there, as well as doing up the adjoining restaurant (which was closed). Even so, I don't think we would stay there again. On reflection it would have been better to pay more and stay in something a bit more upmarket in a nicer area (eg on Janpath) for our first experience of Delhi.
